The huge Suburban might not be politically correct, but it has been the vehicle of choice for large families, or those who need heavy-duty towing and off-road capabilities for quite some time. Suburban seats up to nine (though more commonly seven or eight) with plenty of room for luggage. It has a comfortable ride, a quiet interior and a well-mannered V8 engine. However, handling is ungainly and fuel economy is poor.

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.

Value

Did you get what you wanted relative to the price you paid?

What Owners Say

"For the abuse I give it, towing etc it is a great vehicle."

Anonymous, WA (2007 Chevrolet Suburban)

"The 2007 Suburban was a good price at about 40K in 2007. We picked the lowest level of package that had leather seats (we had small kids and wanted seats that could be wiped off). I believe this year the Suburbans had the new 2 mode cylinder engine where the engine could go from 8 cylinders in use down to 4 cylinders when the full HP was not needed - I.e. Cruising on the highways) which greatly helped with fuel efficiency. the interior seating is comfortable and could easily seat 7 people. It has been reliable and solid. ( currently the Suburban is 11 years old and has well over 200K miles on it thus requiring more and more maintenance) All in all it has been a good reliable vehicle."

Anonymous, TX (2007 Chevrolet Suburban)

"Disappointed at the depreciation of the vehicle. It does not hold up as well as a $50k vehicle should and a new replacement is 60% more than this one was."

JASON P., WI (2007 Chevrolet Suburban)

"I bought this vehicle when it was 7 years old with 230,000 KM, for less than $15k. It has performed very well in the past two years and I've put on approx. 55,000 km so far. I've had one major repair for wheel bearings but that's it other than routine wear and tear."

Percentage of owners who would definitely purchase that same vehicle again. Owner-satisfaction Ratings are determined by the percentage of those who answered "definitely yes" to the question asked by the Consumer Reports Annual Auto Survey "Considering all factors (price, performance, reliability, comfort, enjoyment, etc.), would you get this car if you had to do it all over again?". If we don’t have sufficient data, a similar model might be used to form the owner-satisfaction score.
