"My four children are grown and the suburban is just too big for my husband and me. It has a huge gas tank approximately 40 gallons... nice for long trips!"

"I've always been a fan of the obs Chevy's and loved the roominess of the Suburban. I was looking for a bigger vehicle for my family and got a good deal on one. It needed a little work to make it run good and be reliable, but after 3 years and 40k+ miles, I'm not regretting my decision. It still has plenty of life left in it. Fuel mileage is on average the same as my wife's smaller 6 cylinder suv."

"Had a similar vehicle then T-Boned, insurance made the call of totaled. Bummer!! So I found another, but upgraded to the 2500 Series, 4X4 along with the 454 engine. Mileage was 10 city 13 highway. I significantly noticed a bit of mileage increase now that I have changed out the original tires and wheels for a set of 17" wheels and 285/70/17 tires. The new tires are nearly 33" in height versus the original 30.47" (increased by 2.24")"
