This Is The Best Suv I Have Ever Owned. — This is a beautiful SUV. There is tons of room, and the drive is amazing. Equipped with leather seats makes this vehicle absolutely a pleasure to drive, especially on long rad trips. The sound system is BOSE and rocks. Additionally, this vehicle can haul just about anything you want to throw behind it. Loved it.

Great — This suburban has been great. It has performed wonderfully and has had only minor maint issues. We did need to replace the transmissions lines. The lines don't hold up forever in a real cold climate. It was not a big deal though. We bough a newer one just like it.

Pros

A great, all around, git'er done, haul almost anything with luxury and comfort truck.

Cons

Third row does not fold flat into the floor, you have to remove it for full flat surface in the back.

Absolutely Love It! — You just could not ask for better! It handles and rides like a dream. Incredibly comfortable and wonderful to drive. It can pull heavy loads without a problem or you even noticing the load is back there (I have hauled loads of cedar logs on my 18' trailer so big that you couldn't see my third break light and she didn't even act like the load was there). When you remove the third row seat (which is my ONLY gripe, you have to remove 3rd row to be able to have flat surface for hauling things inside it) you can haul a lot of things. I recently bought a used 65" flat screen TV (so no box) that had a stand and it all fit in the back with room to spare (did have to tilt the TV to get it through the back, but it stood up right after that. The turning radius for such a large vehicle is amazing, it's better than my little GMC Jimmy. I actually get 16 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on highway, of course your mpg is going to depend on several factors ... your driving style, terrain, and weather you use 100% gas or Ethanol. I only use 100% gas in mine. If I am traveling through a state that does not offer 100% I use Lucas fuel treatment and that balances out the gas and I retain the same mpg as with pure gas. Mine is now 11 years old with over 195000 miles on it and the most expensive (and only repair other than regular maintenance) thing I have had to replace/ fix is the A/C evaporator core under the dash. The only cosmetic indicator of her age and miles is the front leather seats that have some wrinkles and a couple tears. The paint still looks like new even though it get's a bath at a full service car wash at LEAST once a week.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Very comfortable, smooth ride. Handled very well. Safe vehicle.

Cons

Better fuel economy is always desired. All Wheel Drive transmission not as desirable as four wheel drive.

Great Suv. Would Definitely Recommend. — Very comfortable, smooth ride. Handled very well. Safe vehicle. Great for family. Better fuel economy is always desired, but considering the size vehicle, and its performance, it dit really good. All Wheel Drive transmission not as desirable as four wheel drive, considering fuel economy, but when calculated, it wasn't too much under.

Pros

Okay my baby was taken up to Canepa in Santa Cruz and had it dropped two inches and added a supercharger (this was pre vortex) this thing would burn rubber at the intersection!

Cons

you could watch the gas gage move

Bad As It Gets On A Jumbo Level — Famous for power sliding pre fast n furious it was like watching a fat lady on ice and in Monterey the roads are built for sliding this heavy beast would handle like a hippo in fantasia. Nothing scared people walking at night than this beast whipping around intersections without headlights so you could tell if a car was coming. Was a great ride till my brother neglected to add oil and the block cracked on me during a trip home....

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

Excellent, Durable And Dependable — Love this truck. Reliable and always a solid truck. Would consider buying a new one if they didn't cost a fourth of what my house cost. Safe vehicle that I will probably pass down to my son here in a couple years.

Amazing — this truck is amazing. we go on 4 hour trips in it almost every two weeks towing 2 600 pound atv's and the back full and you barely feel it. the bose sound system is by far the best "factory" car audio i have ever had. nothing i do not like. oh by the way great for off roading but i would recommend a 2-3 inch lift.

Pros

You buy this car for hauling, filling it with kids, taking camping trips, throwing bikes on the roof or the bike rack on the back. You stuff trees from the nursery, bags of topsoil and manure in the back. You take this car to the symphony and give it to the valet after its been washed and polished. You drive this car to school or on the farm on bad days. You attach the tool trailer, the camper, the horse trailer to make the drive. You are not concerned about mileage or the price of gas. This car is a work horse. Has been and will be!!!

Cons

Nothing negative about this car. Take care of it and it will last a long time.

Great Family Car For Entire Family — Good performance and comfort with large ROOM for ALL your toys. Little electronic problem. Dealer always unable to duplicate the problem. Cost/Value is fair. Feel little heavy and metal ticking noise on tide turn. I rate four on scale.

Excellent Family All Purpose Vehicle. — Performance - its a large SUV, it handles like a large SUV. Build Quality - overall decent, but the daytime running lights have been replace about 8 times, fog lights twice, gas gauge and sensor unreliable below 1/3 tank. Appearance - decent Cost of Ownership - normal maintenance. Fun Factor - decent off road manners.
