I just unloaded our LTZ after a 4 year lease. It was our 7th Chev Truck (Tahoes / Suburbans) and we took really good care of it to buy off lease and found ourselves stuck with too many issues too purchase. The final straw is the 07 5.3L engine oil issue which started at about 80Kmi. We had the new fix done on it and it reduced the problem to from 1 to 2 qrts / 2k mi to 0.5. The 4/8 cylinder active fuel management design does nothing to save MPG but is causing this issue. We used durablend oil and changed every 3K. The other issues included: u-joint, intermittent A/C issues - never resolved, emission stuff, chevy mudflaps removing paint from car, interior door handles (replaced twice!), rear spoiler and plastic window trim falling off, front bumper broke driving home though drifts in a snow storm (+$1000!), electric folding seats work about 25% of the time, heated washer system removed to fire risk!. We bought a used 07 Denali XL to have the 6.0L engine with 57K mi. This engine has no serious oil buring issue and you don't loose much on MPG but get AWD and more power. We saw NO oil consumption on our first 3K mi. So we are no in love with a GM suv again. I would not recommend an 07 suburban to anyone!

I bought my third minivan when I was 24,and with three kids in carseats, it was great. But now, at 31,and with my kids being almost 12,almost 9 and 6 and a half, my husband and I were done with the minivan and wanted a car that was stylish, reliable, and could still fit our kids and their friends. And all of the sports stuff! We bought a 2007 Z71 Suburban. This car is the perfect fit, we absolutely love it. And my husband is no longer embarrassed to drive the family car!

I love this vehicle ! I've always had pick up trucks and switchig to this vehicle is the best of both worlds. There's plenty of room inside and plenty of power to haul my 16" enclosed trailor with what ever load I need to haul and it rides and handles like a car.

Se have owned a Suburban for the last 7 years, and just bought a 2007 Suburban with 43,000 miles. My wife and daughter ride horses, and we travel to Vermont all winter. With a family of 5 and two dogs, I can't find a better vehicle with the size and reliability of a Suburban.

Nice comfortable ride. The GM Certified car program is excellant. 1 year warranty and the truck was delivered in like new condition. The LTZ is the most comfortable truck by far. Decent gas milage 15 to 16 MPG city and 18 to 19 highway. That is great for a 5800 pound vehicle plus occupants. We purchased this after a Chrysler town and country. We had that vehicle in for service more times that we care to count. Glad it was a lease. GM is better build quality than Chrysler. Plus our used truck has much less issues than the newer mini van. Highly recommend a Suburban LTZ

A Great Value Vehicle!

Comfort, ride, safety, reliability, overall low operating cost. If you take good care of these vehicles they will last easily to 300,000 miles or more. My first suburban was a 2002 audit with 84,000 miles. Best vehicle ever owned. Sold it with 264,000 miles five years later yes I had good maintenance records, but I couldn't believe it still had original hoses on it. my second suburban 2007 has over 150,000 miles and has been very reliable. Other than usual tires and brakes and good fluid and filter maintenance. a lot of people Consider only fuel costs when buying a vehicle...However when looking at the whole package Suburbans have lower operating costs and maintenance and insurance on these vehicles. They are a real value!

Bought this 2007 Chevy Suburban after doing lengthy research and going to see a few on various local lots. I had formerly owned a 1992 GMC version,now labeled the Yukon XL and initially was only interested in a more recent model of those. However, many on the market now are the Denali version, which much like its cousin the Escalade ESV, does not offer all the 4 wheel drive options e.g. low range, which is essential for off-roading conditions like sand. The models that did were few and far between. When I turned my search to Suburbans, they almost all were equipped this way, with comparable or even somewhat lower prices and much better availability. I purchased an LT version with the standard leather seats, 3rd row seating, and all the normal comfort features. Since this is a 2007 model, it does not have all the new techno bells and whistles like blue tooth, back up camera, or built in GPS. It is, however, a very comfortable ride, glides down the road at highway speeds with its V-8, long wheelbase and big tires, and handles much better than one might expect of a vehicle of this size with responsive power steering and solid SUV suspension. Of course, it does not have the pick up or nimbleness of a European sports coupe, and one should not attempt to drive it that way, but if you want a reliable, comfortable, safe ride to get from point A to point B with all your gear in whatever weather, this might be the vehicle for you, especially if your day to day driving is not a long commute.This vintage also has very nice lines, stance and visibility, better than the latest version at least to my eye, and in darker colors especially, again to my eye, will get you favorable notice around town and wherever you go. I purchased this vehicle from Sports and Imports in Pasadena MD. They are locally owned, have been around a good long time, and made my buying experience as pleasant as possible. I got very fair market value on my trade, and the price of the vehicle was also very fair. I would recommend anyone in the area in the market for a newer pickup or SUV to give their inventory a good look .

Im in absolut love with my new suburban. I traded my Honda piolt in for it because it needed a new transmition and i didnt want to pay for it with the warrenty being done. I got a great deal on the truck, and i got a LIFETIME WARRENTY! Most GM cars do now, and you might think they break alot, and i have had no problems with the car and i got it in Febuary of 2007. Plus if it did i really dont care, i have a lifetime powertrain warrenty. It has a Smooth, comfertable ride, with percise handling, the turning is like turning a little BMW, the breaking is jaw dropping smooth, and has really good pickup for a full size SUV. if you dont have a heavy foot like me, you will get 17 MPG city miles! 25 HWY! You dont have to belive me. Theres a thing that tells you how much your using in the truck. Thanks GM for opening my eyes from only buying Honda's and Toyotas! I will be purchusing the redesigned Chevy Equionx for my wife. Im never getting rid of my new baby.

Big family, dog, granma, luggage: theferoe, we needed a big car. In the US we found the "Burb", which fits us perfectly. Great show overhere (although some environmentalists won't settle for the fact that it's a FlexFuel engine and hence greener than most european cars.) The one thing we cannot understand is why GM gives absolutely no support to customers outside the US. Would be very nice if we could get codes in order to make NAV-system work in Europe! If somebody knows the guy to be convinved with GM, please, let me know!
