Pros

Comfortable ride and roomy.  Hauls everything

Cons

Hard to park and make tight turns.  Takes long time to cool down in summer.

Great Truck! — This is my second old suburban and I love them. I like large SUV's. I love the wide room and the comfortable ride. I'm not a large person by all means but I love having all the room I can get. I use it to haul scrap and signs and it does just about anything! I can haul 2000 lbs. of boxes inside. Gas isn't great but we all know that! Very nice car to take on a long trip because of all the room. I live in Texas and it takes a long time to get cooled down in the 100+ degree summer. For being 25 years old this trucks never misses a beat. Transmission was horrible, slamming into gear until a friend did "something" with a hose and fixed it. It's a very smooth ride and feels like you float on the road by being protected in a tank. My friends call it the "Land Barge"

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

I love this truck. It is old and by no means as powerful as the recent GMC offerings. Very easy to work on and parts are more than reasonable. If it got better fuel economy or gas was cheaper I would ... Read More
