Pros

This generation Suburban has the most comfortable interior package of any Suburban/Tahoe made.

Cons

Brakes are great for vehicle and passengers but when towing they could be a little stronger.

The Ultimate, Reliable, Family Suv — This generation Suburban has so much more interior style than the 2007 and newer. The latest gen interior seats are flat and look modern but after 500 miles on the highway, your back and rear end will tell you that the previous generation is the cats meow. Power and economy is good for a large SUV and is better than Toyota and Ford in this class vehicle. These trucks stay reliable for 200-300K miles and more if maintained well. The Chevy 5.3L V8 has proven to be the leader in reliability of the V8 truck engines.

People Hauler — Pretty decent people hauler. I've had a few issues but nothing out of the ordinary for a used car. It came with the rims and video system. Iit meets our needs for daily driving and the occasional trip. This vehicle does it's job!

Best In Class — Love the space, huge cargo, captains chairs are heated and very comfy. DVD keeps everyone entertained on long trips, kids can sleep in the back at the lake. Accelerates nicely even when towing, a real workhorse. Very reliable and has held up like a champ.

Like Driving From Your Recliner In Your Living Room. — The car has a computer, but it can't diagnose a lot of the engine issues. ie- fuel pump slowly going, mass air flow sensor, idle control sensor, and fuel pressure regulator going around the same time. Besides for these issues the car drives smooth and comfortably.

Pros

Roomy interior, sturdy exterior

Cons

Brakes, gas mileage, suspension

85

The Beast — The vehicle is definitely roomy, and I feel very safe driving it, knowing that nobody in their right mind would want to hit me. The gas mileage is terrible. The suspension needs work, and the brakes are a little soft and respond slowly. The interior needs a little work, but the exterior is acceptable. The vehicle, for the most part, is unreliable, since my fiance had an additional alarm installed in it. I would not recommend this large of a vehicle for a small family, struggling to make ends meet. This is a vehicle for a person with money to burn and time to make repairs.

Absolutely Love It! Raised My Family In It, Very Reliable! — Orignal owner, I love everything about this car. The only draw back is the gas mileage. My family is grown now and we don't need all that room, 90% of the time its just me in the car. The leather seats have always been so comfortable and soft. The auto 4-wheel drive is wonderful, never had any trouble in the snow! (Ever) The repairs have been average, brakes, tires, transmission, just normal wear and tear. I have always taken very good care of my vehicles, very faithful with the oil changes. It is a big car the acceleration is adequate but once your on 70 mph it just glides. Heated front seats, 4x4, ac, cd, onstar, pw/pb/tow package/ running boards/custom wheels, new tires 10/12.
