This Texas-size wagon becomes your home-on-wheels on a long cross country trip. Ride, handling and braking are much improved over its truck-like predecessor. The Suburban seats eight comfortably with room for their luggage. Parking is still awkward and fuel economy is not great.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Consumer Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How? Our survey data reveals whether, all things considered, owners would buy the same car again. The answer to that question is what determines our owner-satisfaction rating, which is a powerful piece of intel because it predicts how well a particular model will satisfy other owners.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Owner Satisfaction with:

Driving Experience

Includes acceleration and handling

What Owners Say

"There is nothing like V8 for torque in pulling away from a light or carry a heavy load. The Suburban drives more like car than a truck and has been a real workhorse. With snow tires in winter and good all-season tires the rest of the year I can count on it to get me where I need to go in any weather."

D C., NJ (2001 Chevrolet Suburban)

Comfort

Includes seats, climate control, noise, and ride

What Owners Say

"It's very tall, with a great view all around, and the four captain's chairs are nice to sit in. The retractable and removable 3rd row is also critical for being able to comfortably transport 6-7 people."

WILL M., MN (2001 Chevrolet Suburban)

"large and comfiortable for long travel"

What Owners Say

"A great vehicle. Will do all kinds of things, from pulling a travel trailer and hauling cargo to seating nine or taking Mom to the store. Good handling. Responsive engine. Comfortable seating."

RICHARD P., CT (2001 Chevrolet Suburban)

"I bought this for $7000 with 124,000 miles on it and is now at 220,000. It has had a few problems lately but it us still going. It is only now starting to really show its age."

D C., NJ (2001 Chevrolet Suburban)

"We bought our Suburban 1.5 years used, at a significant discount over brand new. Especially knowing that the engine would hold up for more than 200,000 miles, we knew we would get more than enough use from this car to justify it. (We've had it 14 years now.)"

WILL M., MN (2001 Chevrolet Suburban)
