Comfortable, Roomy, and kid friendly!

2009 Chevrolet Suburban LTZ

The Chevrolet suburban has been so reliable for our family. It can hold many things from a mother load of groceries to all our bags and floats for the beach. Seats are comfortable and we love the easy wipe off leather when the kids spill. The only real problem we have with the vehicle is the sensors ringing, but nothing is wrong/faulty. We love the DVD player for the kiddos. The back up camera is one of our favorite features. We also enjoy the captain seats in the 2nd row making it easier for kids/adults to reach the 3rd row seating. All in all this vehicle is reliable, safe, and comfortable. We will be purchasing this type of vehicle for years to come!

Why the suburban is a perfect fit for me.

2009 Chevrolet Suburban LTZ

The suburban sits 7 comfortably. Captain chairs in the back make traveling extra comfortable. The 3rd row can be put down to make extra trunk space although the backspace is already quite roomy. It is easy to drive, somehow it does not feel big and bulky. The back up camera makes parking and backing up much easier. Gas mileage is surprisingly good. It is also flex fuel compatible. I love that we can tow since we have a lot of outdoor toys. 4x4 comes in handy with Colorado winters. The Bose sound system is definitely a big plus!

- Evelyn V

It's a great vehicle love the space and comfort.

2009 Chevrolet Suburban LTZ

My suburban has been a great car. I bought it with 150,000 miles and it has used oil since the purchase. That has been a little frustrating always checking the oil but, I haven't had any other mechanical problems. I love the space it offers its very comfortable for me and my 4 children. I will definitely buy another one when I'm able to. My car has leather seats, heated seats, DVD player. It's white in color and just a very pretty car.

- Tammy L

Love my SUV, my favorite thing is the XM radio.

2009 Chevrolet Suburban LTZ

No major issues with SUV. Lots of room, very roomy lots of legroom. And lots of cargo room. Not so good on gas but very reliable good on gas for long distances, just not in town. We have always had a suburban,.That's the only SUV I'll trust or ever buy because they are very dependable and have lots of room. Fits 3 car seats great. Although getting to the third row isn't easy.

2009 maroon suburban with 8 person space.

2009 Chevrolet Suburban LTZ

I love my truck. The gas mileage is great for it is year and size, roughly 18 mpg. It also can take e85 so if needed it can save a little money. The gears shift with little effort and runs incredibly smooth. It is reliable and we've fixed only a couple thing on it and we've had it 3 years. My only complaint is the exterior does not hold up well with the elements in Indiana.

- Christian V

I love the body style. I prefer it even over the newer body style.

2009 Chevrolet Suburban LTZ

I love how much space there is. I love how much seating and the huge trunk area. I haven't been able to use to remote start but I think it was a mechanical error. When I get a new car I will consider the newer suburban because I love the vehicle so much. It's been one of my favorite vehicles I have ever driven.

- Samantha P

Great vehicle a big family!

2009 Chevrolet Suburban LTZ

My Suburban comfortably seats my family of 7. There is plenty of legroom and a ton of cargo space. The seats are very comfortable. It has been extremely reliable and one of the safest vehicles you can drive. It handles well in any weather. Love the 4 wheel drive.

- Tara Y

Too many sensors for my liking.

2009 Chevrolet Suburban LTZ

Tire sensors are always an issue. The suspension system has had an issue as well. The transmission had to be rebuilt. Overall it is a good vehicle but having so many sensors is an issue as they constantly go off even if there is only a small problem.
