So a similar equiped 09 is about 3k more than the 08 you just bought?
Wow ... that sounds pretty good.

Is the hybrid offered with 4wd .... whats your mileage around town and on the HWY?
Are you happy with it ... any downside to a hybrid?

Sorry for the late response.
The hybrid does come in 4wd but we live in KY and don't haul too often. We have been averaging about 21-22mpg. I think you lose 1-2 mpg for 4wd. My wife drives it and she doesn't spend too much time on the hwy.
The downside to the hybrid is that the second row is a bench ( which folds) but you can't get bucket seats. Also the rear window doesn't open but we are ok with that. So far we are thrilled with tahoe!!!
#171 of 207 Parent's new 2008 Suburban
Oct 06, 2008 (5:21 pm)
I'm not 100% sure on the exact details, but my parents got a white 2008 4x4 Suburban LS for around $33K out the door including taxes and fees. It had a few options like the convenience package and the upgraded in-dash cd changer stereo.So my guess is around a $42,850MSRP. I think my parents had some rebate from their GM card too. They got it from the Roseville, CA dealership who had to get it from another dealer.
My dad is selling his 2003 4x4 quadrasteer Chevy 1500HD Silverado to a friend. That thing was a gas pig. No matter highway at 55MPH or 70MPH, it still got around 12MPG! This Suburban should be an improvement.

With the dilemma that GM is facing and the lot and overflow lot at my local dealer full - I'm wondering what I can get an LTZ 4x4 for? Was thinking about offering $25K . Heck that gets inventory off the lot, no more interest payments on that car sitting there, gets GM some cash into their balance sheet, etc. etc. Makes sense to me
What kind of deals are people getting out there on these?

Let's see , just suppose the MSRP is 56000. for a fully loaded LTZ and you are looking for over 50% reduction,don't believe that is going to work. Maybe able to grab an 2005 though.

Be sure to check Universal Chev, got a much better deal than any of the real local guys, and extremely pleasant to deal with. Beat the best local by a couple grand on my 2007, if I remember correctly without pulling out all of the paperwork.

Well, I know I won't get a new LTZ for $25k but that inventory is going to last them a L O N G time. My '00 'burb still pulls our motorcycles and hauls the crew the few times per month that I need all the seats.
Kiawah: where is Universal?

Main Street, Wendell.
Take the new I-540 beltline east,easy to get to. It's like 20 minutes from N. Raleigh/Raleigh. Family run business.
You can check their inventory online. That's how I found them, they had the LTZ with the color/seats/options I wanted. Drove out with my trade, they checked it out, and we shook hands in about an hour.

Hey everybody... I'm currently trying to work out a deal for a used 2007 Chevy Suburban Z71. The truck is fully loaded w/ on 21K on it. My question is with all the price drops on new trucks and the predicament that GMC is in, what do you think a reasonable price for this truck is? The dealer was at 34,995, which I thought was ridiculous. He's now down to 32K out the door, but I want more. What do guys/gals think? What's a reasonable price for this truck? I used the Edmunds TMV and stated the price should be a little over 31K.
