"While it rides much better than the last body style, it still has a truck like handling. The 454 pulls great though. I can tow 8000 lbs at 75mph without even feeling it. Really stinky on gas usage though, 8-10mph on average. Fuel pump and distributor went out at 130000 and have had a variety of other more minor problems. Brakes aren't the best but aren't horrible. It's a big heavy truck and takes a while to stop. When I replace this one, I'll get another Suburban."
"I bought this truck used in 2003 with 112 thousand odd miles. It now has 256,142. I've only replaced the brakes, alternator, and serepentine belt. I've traveled from MS to Chicago(12hrs), Houston(8hrs), Atl(6hr), FLA(19hrs), Baton Rouge(5hrs), and all over MS. This is a true SUV."
