Pros

I love the space, it is  very roomy and comfortable to travel in. This car in very nice and safe, I never felt more safe in a vehicle.

Cons

I had to maintenance it through the dealer to get tires for life, so I paid for maintenance I and II when needed, it was worth it to get free tires.

This Is A Chevrolet Suburban And A Great Family Vehicle — I love Chevrolet Suburbans and I think it is the best family vehicle made. We travel in it and enjoyed every minute of it. The leather seats are very comfortable and the DVD has 2 working headphones so the kids can listen to a movie while me listen to Siriusxm satellite radio. The cargo area is large enough to pack a full size cooler along with our suite cases all the way to Orlando, Florida. I can't sincerely say anything bad about this truck, it has and still is, serving us well.

Excellent Family Vehicle — Love it! It has the power and space for our family. With 2 kids and 2 dogs it makes for enjoyable road trips. The DVD and other amenities make long travel times painless and care free. I would recommend this vehicle to friends and family!

Braking, Acceleration And Handling Very Good — This vehicle is safe, rides comfortable and is very quiet. It is a safe and fun to drive. The vehicle handles well and seats up to six passenger comfortably. Could possibly seat seven. The entertainment package is a nice addition for rear passengers. This vehicle is a gem.

Pros

Tons of room, the suburban is well appointed with many features tied to higher end SUVS.

Cons

Cylinder deactivation, as the driver you can feel the change in the drive line as the vehicle moves from 8 cyl to 4 cyl.

Good Truck For The Money. — Fuel mileage poor even with cylinder deactivation. Love the white diamond tricoat. These trucks are a dime a dozen driving down the road. There's one at every street corner so get a color that's less purchased if you want to be different. Love the space, entertainment, etc. Just didn't give me that, I look forward to driving it feeling.

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

Pros

Plenty of space for the kids and for their stuff.

Cons

the second row bench becomes a pain the rear when you have kids regularly getting into or out of the third row and you have to use car seats in the 2nd row.

Great Family Car. — Solid car. Very, very reliable. Smooth ride and decent hwy mileage.Plenty of cargo space and seating. One thing to consider, if you have more than one child in a car seat and you have others that need to get to the 3rd row, you will have to open both sides of the car. The single seat that folds up is on the passenger side. The double seat where your car seats will be is on the drivers side. This poses a little bit of a problem when kid #4 comes along.

Great vehicle for the family. Smooth ride, stylish interior and exterior, and several extras

Cons

The gas mileage is not great, about 12-13 miles in the city and 20-23 miles on the interstate

Great Vehicle — The vehicle has been a great purchase. The SUV is a little big, but handles like a much smaller car. The wife loves it and the kids can't get enough of the space and additional features. The gas mileage is not great, but the pros definitely outweigh the cons. You can either give up the mileage and get the comfort, or give up the comfort and get the mileage. We chose the comfort.

Is A Keeper. — Like just about everything. Dislikes, none. Goes great in the snow. Hauls lots of people and stuff with ease. Good power on regular gas. Haven't tried E85 and don't intend to. My golfing buddies ride in style too on the way to the course.

Suburban - Best Car We've Ever Owned — The Suburban is the best car there is for long road trips. We can pack in loads of stuff and still not feel cramped. The ride is extremely comfortable. Obviously mileage is not great, but the fully loaded LTZ has every imaginable extra and gadget. This is our second Suburban (the first one lasted us 12 years and 102,000 miles) and we'll probably have Suburbans for life.

Wow Thats Big — I drove this car for 3 weeks and was impressed with handling and get up and go, It's a BIG truck and I really like driving big trucks, but its almost too big, overall its a fun drive but gas pump will kill ya! I filled up after only using a quarter of a tank and almost fainted, that quarter of a tank was my Durango's full tank. OUCH!
