Great — This car is the perfect size for a family who travels . The third row seat comes in handy and when not in use the added space is great for luggage or extra groceries. This vehicle is Very reliable and easy to maintain.

Chevy Suburban, Awesome Truck — Best Full Size SUV available! Great well built American truck, It's a 2005 Chevy Suburban, just awsome, a great truck, smooth ride, great towing capacity, 2 wheel drive but it's still good, about 55k miles! Although it doesn't get the best mileage if you go easy on the 5.3 liter vortec V8 you can save some gas

A Great Family Vehicle And Nice Alternative To A Mini-van — Years ago I owned a mini-van, what the guys from Car Talk called the "wussification of the American male." Never again! Then came along the Suburban. Thank you Chevy! A nice reliable full size family vehicle that gets decent gas mileage (comparatively) and fits my family in style and comfort.

2500 4x4 Suburban — We have owned this vehicle since new and it is the third one we have owned and it is the greatest vehicle for a large family that likes to camp and ski and the like. Safe vehicle with good visibility and creature comforts.

Beautiful All Around Truck — Love this vehicle for running kids around to ball games and music activities. Great family vehicle and comfortable for long road trips. Plenty of cargo room and DVD player keeps kiddos entertained for a long time. Kids can get in and out of the suburban easily and no climbing over seats to get to the back seat.

Primary Use: Family transportation

My Family & Boat Hauler — Great for hauling the family, boat as well as family AND boat! Also works great for those trips to Home Depot. Sucks down gas like a thirsty dog, though. But still cheaper travel than buying 6 airline tickets! Heated seats are great here in the Chicago winter as well...

Chevrolet Suburban -- The Ultimate Travel Experience — My Z71 Suburban is an absolute beast in the snow and is the perfect vehicle for family travel no matter what the event. Spacious interior to sprawl out in, but yet a smooth suspension that will have you feeling like your driving a Caddy!!

Excellent Work Horse That Is Comfortable Too. — This is a marvelous vehicle in appearance and performance. The options are many and serve to compliment the basic vehicle. While expensive in some respects, this vehicle is very much worth the extra dollars you will spend. This is a heavy duty work horse that does not forsake comfort.

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