Pros

Very comfortable ride, great family car for long trips. This CHEVY BRAND NAME; "SUBURBAN" CELEBRATED ITS 75th Anniversary. My hats off to a GREAT AMERICAN AUTO  MAKER.

Cons

The 3rd row seat has less Leg Room, campered to the previous generation Suburban.

Great Family Car, And I Feel Very Safe With My Family Riding In It. — Very comfortable on the road, thanks to safety traction control, side air bags. The interior is very quite on the road and handling is superb in any road conditions with great visibilty since it sits higher than passenger cars. I definitely love this SUV for it's great cargo room for hauling marching band students and instruments. Definitely would recomend this family wagon to families who have children in sports or other extra school related events; since this is my second SUBURBAN for SAFETY pick also.

Pros

Great family rig. Great cargo capacity. Great towing vehicle. A truck that rides like a car.

Cons

Gas mileage. Don't buy one for the mpg.

A Truck With Style. — My 4th Suburban. I love them. I've had '74 & '79 Chev and an '85 GMC Suburbans in the past. The LTZ is by far the nicest I've had thus far and only 87k miles. Lots of life left'. It's not a 'man' thing either....my wife loves it and loves driving it. I have for many years and will in the future recommend Suburbans....to anyone that can afford the fuel.

Best Full Size Suv Ever Made — on my 3rd one constantly upgrading to a newer model . there are smaller engines and samller SUV's that give you the same MPG why trade down in space ? this is simply the best SUV ever manufactured to date. will never buy anything else

2006 Suburban — The Suburban is a nice vehicle and has plenty of room for the familey or freinds. Also the rear seat fold down and the 3rd row seat comes out, for using to haul large items. Stylish and not boxy looking.

Pros

Great family car, handles well, rides smooth.  Great mileage on road trips, and great mileage around town for a large SUV.

Cons

It has had many small things break, like speakers, airbag sensor, EVAP canister valve but all under CarMax warranty.

Great Family Car - Rides Smooth - Very Comfortable — We love our Suburban is great. For all the talk about gas hog SUV's, we get 16-20 MPG on this thing. I have had some issue with the parking brake - seems to bottom out now without any ability to adjust. Just about the only complain though. We've had it for 3 years now - bought with 24K miles and now 72K. Still runs perfect.

This Is A Really Nice Truck. — This is a family car, as it can fit up to 8 people comfortably. It has been to Florida twice, and to many other destinations with the family. The Chevrolet V8 engine really pulls through when it is needed, and the appearance is really sharp.

If You Can Fill Up The Tank, This Ride Is Awesome For College Kids :) — Pretty much this car is awesome. I am able to take most of my friends anywhere. It has a range of 600 miles, and seats 8 people. It gets an average of 16 MPG which is pretty good for a car this size and power from the motor, which makes about 300 horses.

My Ride — My suburban has a 4 inch lift with custom suspension kit and dual exhaust which makes it look and sound awsome!! Suspension was made for off-roading, but handles fine on road too. I love driving my suburban, it makes me feel safe. I love the extras; the leather, the DVD player, the built in Nav. system....makes it a sweet ride!
