"This SUV has been a staple in our family for 15 years. It is reliable and hard working. We have 246,000 miles on the original engine and transmission (no rebuilds either). The truck has required some work over its lifetime, but it wasn't the worst car that I've ever seen. The body is rusty, but that's GM's fault for designing their rockers the way they did (and mine for living in Wisconsin). That being said, It is a quality built vehicle and i would have no problem taking it cross country today."
"Have owned this vehicle since 2002, bought new. The only mechanical problems were taken care of under warranty and extended warranty. Gas mileage is not good, but vehicle has been a great buy. GM did a good job on this one. With 110500 miles it still looks good and runs well. I actually get offers to sell it."
"Got the truck new and have never had even one problem with it other then the third row seat latch is loose.
I have another pick up truck which I need for work and don't really drive this truck enough to keep it. The seats are custom but match the Grey interior perfectly."
"Honestly this ride amazes me every day. I have 175k miles and the only repairs that have been done are an alternator and brakes and tires. The 6.0L engine is dynamic and the 4L80 transmission is e most reliable in any SUV built. Bose sound is awesome and the interior is comfortable.
If it has one drawback, it would be the complex electronics before the technology was completely ready for it. Although it hasn't given me much trouble, I have worked on several others with climate control problems and the like.
If you want a solid, dependable, powerful SUV, this one is for you."
"Bought this vehicle in 2003 and owned going on 13 years. One major issue only with transmission year 12 of ownership, low maintenance, great ride. Vehicle came with the Deluxe Southern Comfort package an added plus."
"This truck is awesome it has 215689 miles on it nothing has ever been done to it stock everything besides the simple usual maintenance like oil changes and spark plugs doesn't use any oil at all! Plenty of power the 6.0 lq4 is a healthy beast will tow with no problem we pulled a 28 ft pontoon home from Georgia with it. Pulled bass boats fishing and packed it down with camping gear and a bass boat with no issues also been all over the southeast and back with no problems.The only issue I have to complain about is that the rocker panels on both sides in the back have rusted holes in them. Other than that this truck had been amazing for our family. But still to this day with 215689 miles on it, it will do whatever we ask of it with no questions asked! Great vehicle!!"
