If You Need Room And Hate Sliding Door Minivans I Would Recommend A Suburban. — I would like it to have better gas mileage, but whatever its a big vehicle and I need the room. If your like me and demand something with room and isn't a minivan this is a good compromise. I never thought I would like such a big vehicle but this one handles well and gets the job done.

2002 Suburban 5.3l Is 18-19 Mpg Hwy So Far. — Reliable American Power and Durability that lasts forever. Room for 8, Power to spare. Tried the smaller SUVs and returned to the Cowboy Cadillac. My wife and 6 kids love it. LOVE. I have 3 friends who drove their Suburbans forever and the two who got rid of theirs now wished they hadn't.

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.

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.

Shamoo — Overall a great family oriented vehicle, that has taken quite the beating. Has kept my family alive and warm overnight in a blizzard along I-40 not once but twice, and has been the most reliable automobile we have ever owned.

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.

Superb — Best family car ever !! 24" wheels, 17" screen inside, What could be better ? Custom made by my ideas over the last few years. Adding the lights, removing chrome, and changing the front bumber was the most dramatic changes. I love it.

Awesome — I didn't like the fact that most of the parts are more expensive. On the other hand, I should of expected it since it is a 4 WD. Other than that, it has been a great vehicle to my family and me.
