Suburban ltz fully loaded, wonderful for a large family!

2008 Chevrolet Suburban LTZ

We love our suburban! It is spacious enough for our family of five and large dog. We have the ltz which comes with a DVD player, and that is a must for us for longer road trips. The vehicle performance, comfort, features and reliability are great. We haven't had any major issues with the vehicle at all. We have found that routine maintenance (breaks for example) is pretty costly due to the quality and size of parts. Unfortunately a lot of rust spots have popped up (but we live in a state that utilizes a lot of salt for the roads in the winter) and unfortunately it is way too costly to have the rust repaired. Other than that we love the vehicle and plan to own it for many years to come.

Smooth luxury ride for a non Minivan family

2008 Chevrolet Suburban LTZ

In the LTZ model, it has wood grain interior, a DVD player, heated seats on screen navigation, OnStar capabilities, back up camera.. it also features 'Captain' seats in the second row with heated seats. My truck has the automatic running boards so when the door opens, the running boards comes out from underneath the truck. My truck features the 6.0L engine which is better than Flex Fuel engines.. but it does burn thru oil and gas very quickly. Automatic start on the remote. Very smooth ride, I love my truck.

2008 Chevrolet suburban, ltz z71 SUV.

2008 Chevrolet Suburban LTZ

I love it! Comfy, reliable, all the bells and whistles, 4 wheel drive for winter, easy to use for picking up kids from school, and great to take on family vacations! Has a navigation system, backup video camera, tow package, sun/moonroof, leather interior, heated seats, a nice computer system that tells you what need to be inspected.

Classy, and comfortable ride

2008 Chevrolet Suburban LTZ

The interior is beautiful, comfortable, with many features. Although 11 years old it has alot of technology. We love the hands free tailgate opening and closing, TV option, Bose stereo sounds amazing. The windshield wipers adjust automatically to weather conditions. The ride is smooth and quiet and body is sleek.

This Suburban seats . 1 that seats 8 would be ideal seeing as I have 6 children

2008 Chevrolet Suburban LTZ

The only problems I have had our electrical issues. The electrical issues have to do with the cruise control. It was an easy fix. Had to do with the brake switch. Now I am having problems with the air conditioner it still blows cold it just started to blow out of the defroster instead of the air vents

It's the SUV you need for road trips

2008 Chevrolet Suburban LTZ

The suburban is the best SUV I have ever own. The ride is smooth, and for long road trip,it's amazing. The only bad thing is it sucks a lot gas in the city. And in the, hot summer days it takes a while for the,suburban to cool down. The space inside is great with the third row I can fit 8 adults.

- Marco M

Overall all great family Vehicle

2008 Chevrolet Suburban LTZ

This vehicle is very reliable. I would recommend it to people with large families. It is made for the highway. It's equipped with a DVD player and Bose speakers. The only thing that problems me is the check engine light. I took it to the dealership and they couldn't find any problems.

Oil issue, electrical issue

2008 Chevrolet Suburban LTZ

It has an oil pressure issue which can be corrected with a better oil seal between the oil pump and pick up tube. It also has an electrical issue with the lights. It was repaired at an electrical shop. The cylinder shutdown system isn't worth being engaged on the vehicle.

Safety features in a 08 Suburban

2008 Chevrolet Suburban LTZ

Out of all the vehicles I have owned this is the easiest to install car seats to. There are all the right safety features for a big family. And the trunk space is spacious and perfect for life shopping trips. Also the leg room in the front row is amazing.

- Amber S

I love how I can control everything from the front seat

2008 Chevrolet Suburban LTZ

I love that my truck has DVD player. It's seats can fold up if I need them to the trunk can open with a simple touch. That comes IN Handy when your hands full and have kids. Then I love that I can control everything right from the TV screen in the front.

- Heather B
