Lovemy Suburban's Review:

November 24, 2011, 5:56 pm

I am a previous owner of a 2010 Chevy Avalanche LS. Great family truck, until my family grew. Sad to give up my truck, and hesitant on getting an SUV (I didn't want to drive anything bulky). Hub & I looked at several SUVs. We narrowed it down to the Toyota Sequoia and the Chevy Suburban. Every other SUV we looked at did not provide enough cargo space for my family's needs. I gotta say, the Sequoia gave the Suburban some hard rubs, but in the end it was the simplicity of the Suburban's interior that won me over. The Sequoia had too much buttons for EVERYTHING. I didn't care for it. I prefer some things to stay manual & not automatic. I want to have some control, haha. I opted for captain seats in the second row. Very comfortable. Makes it so much more easier for my kids to maneuver in/out of the car. So my seating capacity is 7. Trunk space is superior compared to most SUVs. Cargo space after removing the third row and dropping the second row is huge! I've been able to load up furniture with no problem A couch+couple of chairs, a dresser w/space to spare. I even fit a 9-foot table into my Suburban. I also opted for the 20 inch rims. Very smooth ride. She drives well, although I have to admit, she feels heavier than my Avalanche, but that's expected since the Suburban is enclosed. It wasn't hard to get used to though since the Suburban and the Avalanche share the same frame. Gas mileage is a little less on the Suburban. I'm averaging 15.5, whereas the Avalanche gave me 17.8. Mostly city, rarely highway. Miss my truck, but love, love, love my Suburban. I made a good choice.
