Toolburban — Great vehicle plenty room for all of my tools, has lots of power, and twin AC just a overall cool ride. I will soon be looking to buy another one, if I can find the right one. Maybe a pearl white one.

Pros

Size & versatility, pretty tight turning radius for such a big ol boat!

Cons

A little short on power when towing compared to my previous Nissan Titan truck

A Nice Switch! — I had driven Nissan Titans since '06. At the end of 2013, I found a very hard to find low mileage '08 Titan king cab w/8' long bed nearby at just the right price for me. I traded in my '04 king cab short bed for it and for 8 days was the happiest camper in the universe! On Christmas day, an oncoming sleepy dairy farmer w/frosty windshield swerved into my lane and totaled my brand new baby. Thankfully, we people both walked away relatively unhurt, but my beloved truck was towed away, never to return... I was unable to find another truck of the same caliber, low mileage and affordable price, which left me in limbo for months. Finally, at the recommendation of a friend who drove a Suburban happily for years, I began looking at them and liked the idea! At this point, I wasn't willing to saddle myself with car payments. I located a '95 Chevy Suburban at a nearby dealership that had been ridden real hard and put up wet. They let me have it at a cash wholesale price, no warranty. I'm not sure if it was worth the money - I joke about renaming it a Duralast Suburban for all the new parts I've had to buy for it - but LOVE the size and versatility of it! I'm currently shopping for one in the '92-'99 generation that hasn't been as abused as my first one and will pick off all those new Duralast parts from it as needed. What I like is having a full 8'+ covered bed when the 3rd seat is removed and rear seat is down. I can carry countless feed bags and don't have to check the forecast for rain when visiting the feed store. Can also fit a queen sized air mattress for camping. I'm pleased to leave the tent at home for quick trips! The old man likes the 350 engine. He's not a Chevy/GMC guy, but has found the motor relatively easy to work on and replacement parts easy to locate.

One Of The Best Work Horses U Will Ever Purchase — overall a decent large suv to purchase cheap. don't pay attention to the miles cause they will ride 300 plus easy. I have 208123 on mines and Im happy and whenever this engine goes I will put in another one

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

The Beast — is's great. road trips, around town, fuel mileage ain't bad. it pulls my boat and hauls whaterver we need for the weekend get aways without any trouble. most of the time i have to drive because of the third row seating.

Good Overall Standing - One Of The Last Few Well-built Chevy Trucks — I love this truck/SUV because it is tough and takes a beating. I can drive around with a carful of tools or family members to get the job done no matter what. The only downside to all that room, power, and solid body is the gas costs to run the big old beast.

1995 Chevy 2500 Suburban — I liked that it's 4x4 and I could take it off road. I love that it's roomy. I never had any problems with the vehicle. Just the radiator and the starter. This SUV has been in the family for 12 years.

everything

Cons

the 4L60E transmission is known for having problems

I Love My Suburban — Everything about this vehicle is perfect for me, from the towing capabilities, to the fact that my whole family can fit in it, and we still have room to put stuff in the back. The paint job is perfect for me. The Vortec 350 has plenty of power, and being it's a 4x4 is perfect for summer mudding or for the winter snow around here. My only issue is the 4L60E transmission, had to replace the first winter I had it, the housing cracked. When I unbolted it from the transfer case, 5 pieces fell into my hand.

Fantastic Vehicle. — This is my first vehicle. She is retired from EMS, as she was the tech truck and, sometimes, first responce. Stock 350. 4-L60 transmission.My boyfriend and I paid $1000 for this truck (Well technically $500 as we did a job for teh hospital and stripped a ambulance and were paid $500 to do it, so that went towards this truck.) and put about $2800 into it. The main thing that cost the most was a new transmission case, as the mechanic that it was taken to before I bought it did not put the skid plates back on so a build up of snow caused it to crack. My boyfriend built me a skid plate, as I do not know how to weld yet. We had to replace the starter, as that was going. For a while, the Suburban would eat batteries...the battery that came with it worked great...then suddenly needed a boost allt he time...then we bought a new battery and after a few months that one was toast...now I am hoping its done eating batteries. When this truck served for EMS it had regular maintnance every 3-6 months. The acceleration is not the greatest, sluggish. Breaks are fantastic. Steering is a little stiff. I will be dropping the cat and replacing the exhaust once it is nicer out. The exterior is white with a couple rust spots and dings. Bumpers are chrome. Tires are bald, needing new ones in the summer. The interior is blue but in great shape! Other than some mud on the seats and rust in the back that fell off of a chain, it is in great condition! This truck was used a lot this winter; pulling people out. I love driving this truck. She is a gas pig, but what do you expect out of a V8!? Sadly, she has IFS. Once I have the time, money, and knowledge I will be doing a solid front axel swap. I plan to lift her about 6" and put 35s on her. I am going to start airbrushing soon and plan to paint her black. This will be my daily driver for a while, but I plan to retire her to a full time off road vehicle and lift it about another 6". I removed the running boards as I can have MORE clearance...and it looks better. This truck is, so far, my greatest investment!!

Ugly Service Truck That I Bought To Replace My Volvo — Nice truck, was trouble free after the initial purchase but then I started to get some costly repairs, this I was expecting to a point because of what it is and how much I drive. Right now it is a money pit.
