Pros

Amazingly comfortable and pleasure to drive on long trips

Cons

Heavy, slides in snow/ice a bit more than I'd expect. Gas mileage is poor. Things slowly failing over time.

A Great Investment As A Third Family Car — We bought this car in 2009 with 101k miles on it. It's got 180 now and we've done little to it. The AC didn't work when we got it and the rear struts needed replacing. The car has worked great over the years, and overall it's been a reliable, dependable family vehicle for trips. Things have slowly broken down, but it's still a good vehicle in limited use. Quite impressed with GM on this one.

Powerful — We like everything about this truck and has come in handy in so many ways all year round. Powerful 2500 ton gets it done. Even if you have to pull other half slingers (1500) out of the ditch in the winter. Which is funny. You do not see many 2500 ton suburban around.!

Pros

back seats fold & tumble forward, with the 3rd row removed you can load it like a pick up truck with 4 x 8 sheets of plywood. With 3rd row fold you can still load but limited and harder.

Cons

3rd row seat must be removed to take benefit of all the cargo room.

Out Performs The Expedition — The ride is great, smooth, powerful, good braking and responsive steering. The seats are as or more supportive than anything out there. MPG pretty steady at 13/18. Nice factory radio and OnStar. This '01 replaced our '04 Expedition. The Suburban bests it all around except for Expedition's 2nd and 3rd row fold flat seats; really miss that! But would never go back.

Pros

Excellent family car, Chevy suburban just been nominated in one of the reliable car with smooth long life till 200,000 miles. It has been ranked #3.

Cons

There's only one thing which I'd mention in this area is Fuel consumption. Chevy Suburban..people call it a Gas Hog which is fine because 5.3 ltr V8 engine. You can't expect a gas mileage like small Honda Civic :-)

Strong And Reliable In Any Weather Condition. — I like overall almost everything, capacity, features, engine power n all. What I don't like is just Gas mileage is a lot because it's a big V8 engine. Other than Gas its a pretty good car for any small or big family.

225,000 Miles And Counting — Love this vehicle and mechanics tell me since I've changed the oil religiously, it should run for another 250,000 miles. Overall you cannot beat this car for value and reliability. Great tow vehicle and family vacation vehicle. I will buy another Suburban someday.

Kansas — I have always owned a Truck and this was my first suburban. I am Sold!! I have replaced this one with a newer one and will probably always drive a suburban from now on. I think it is the best all around vehicle made.

The 'burb — I love my Suburban. The interior space is versatile and roomy. I've had a whole bedroom set (minus the boxspring and mattress) in it. It also handles great in the rain and snow. This is a must-have rig when traveling any kind of distance.

It's Well Worth It — This suburban has all the space and seats for all the family big or small. Loved our long trips in this vehicle ! Had it for seven years and it has been a great truck ! It is a large suv so be ready to spend on gas .
