very nice ;never regreted buying
Pros: power and heated seats
Cons: gas milagelove the ride; like the looks;enjoy it every day
Pros: Smooth quiet ride for such a big vehicle
Cons: Latch system design with 3rd row access
Advice: research the safety features if you have small childrenIf you have small children be aware of the latch system on the bench seat model. We assumed the latch options would extend across the entire second row as our two previous SUV/Trucks did. They do not.Only the right and middle positions. Who wants two kids sitting cramped side by side? Also I have to climb into the car to unstrap my child in the center position. Another downside is that you cannot access the third row seat if a carseat is latched in the right-side position. Chev. does not offer a kit to add a latch behind the driver. Poor judgement in my opinion. Let the owners decide where they want to latch their children! We have now had to compromise our childrens' safety for a peaceful existence and easy access to our children! I also wish Chev. offered side air bags as standard feature on all three rows,as other newer vehicles offer these days. Otherwise, I love the smooth,quiet ride, performance and stereo system of this vehicle. Plenty of cubbies, deep console and cubholders as well. But, I would not have bought the bench seat model had I realized the latch system was designed this way.
Pros: The over all feel
Cons: parking it in tight places
Advice: make sure you can fit it into your garage:) Because you will want it there!Love it! Still getting used to its length and huge turning circle compared to what I was used to. Got a backup lens for the back window, so I can see whats behind me better. Still have a hard time judging distance to when parking it.
Pros: Stabilitrak, the adjustable pedal and the lumbar support.
Cons: With Stabilitrak you get all wheel drive....it has a Whining noise when slowing down. That bothers me because I don't know why. The 4 wd doesn't have that noise.
Advice: You should get Stabilitrak and Autoride. They are worth itI am a long time Suburban owner. I always had Autoride, but this is the first time I had Stabilitrak. Believe me its wonderful. Like when you in a cloverleaf and you oversteered....it corrects. Its the most comfortable ride you can get on long trips and I like the Xm radio too. Its cleat and never has statics no matter where you go. The only time you don't have reception is when you're in a tunnel!
