"This is my 3rd Suburban. Had no choice really with 6 kids and a dog. I was lucky to find it with low miles since I'll need the size for quite a few more years. It rides smooth and quiet and actually has quite a bit of pick up for such a large vehicle. The seating is very comfortable and the cargo space ranks 2nd to none.It's mostly driven around town, but on our long trips the fuel consumption is better than expected."
"Large family, dogs, stuff, live in rural iowa...no way a mini van could do what we need it to do. When gas was $4 a gallon, we still loved this SUV. Regular service, Amoco 87 octane gives us 15 city and 18 highway. Will replace with a newer suburban in 09."
Pros: "good hauling power, lots of room, nice look"
Cons: "no crossbars on roofrack, only 16 mpg"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10
"i think of this as a truck because of the frame and engine at this high of miles it starts to have minor leaks but it always fires up great in snow and great to haul stuff around and nice look or curb appeal the engine is powerful for a smaller V8 its a nice truck and really dependable towing about 8000 pounds through the mountains it did great this is really a great hauling truck and truck for big families or just travelers"
