Pros

This is a great utility vehicle.

Cons

Big. Gas tank takes 44 gal. That'll get your attention; but then you don't have to think about filling up for another 700 miles or so.

The Beast — We call it the "Beast." 2 wheel drive so it gets 20 mpg on the highway - we drive it in the summer. No salt, no rust... It is our camp vehicle. A/C works. Floats on down the boulevard. Great vehicle if you are moving kids out of your house and into their own apartments...

Pros

over 200,000 miles on it, a few replaced parts and a new head gasket later, still kick'in. Tows like a beast. After towing scrap for one full summer we replaced the brake booster, but no prob since.

Cons

average 16-17 MPG, 18 on a really good day. Hard to see blind spots to the rear which makes multi-lane, high speed, and tight traffic driving difficult.

Practicality Over Everything Else — Overall this suburban is a very practical car with plenty of seats and lots of cargo room as well as toeing capabilities, but style and efficiency aren not its strong points by any means. New generations of the suburban are much more refined.

GAS PRICE

A Michigan Beast — One of the best vehicles ive owned, except the gas mileage. For it being as big as it is it sure will get up and go when needed, best thing to have in the winter other than a AWD vehicle.

Great Family Vehicle! — I love the spaciousness of this car. It is suprisingly easy to handle. For being such a big vehicle it is fun to drive. There is not a lot of noise while driving it on the highway which is a plus.

Prim Time Runner — Fun truck to go any where with. I can go to work, go up north with ALL the buds, hook an ice shack or trailer on or anything basically. Fully loaded with power everything, love the space hate the mileage. I can't wait to straight axle convert this hog! The vortec 350 is also a huge plus compared to the tbi or carb...

Good Suv — Love this vehicle. Have 228830 miles on it. the high gas prices are starting to make it suck to drive. I like the performance and power of the 5.7 350. Has been a reliable vehicle and not so much break down issues.
