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

Lotsa room! Easy to drive, car-like steering. Mechanical reliability has been good in class. Great for families.

Cons

Avg MPG's. BIG, your not gonna grab that first parking spot too easy. Feels a little "top heavy" on the handling side. So-so interior quality.

The Perfect Family "truckster"! — Easy to drive, as long as you don't try to fit in that tight parking spot. Quiet interior although quality is only lackluster. Doesn't run great on 85 octane here in Denver, needs mid grade gas. Perfect vehicle for family on 4 or more (plus the cat and dog)...

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.

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.

Great Update To A Solid Performer — Traded a Denali XL and so far very pleased. Glad they finally added a black interior. Wound up ordering a loaded 3LT instead of the LTZ to avoid the chrome overload. Got the 6.0 engine as well.

Its A Tank, And Drives As Such — Its a monstrous vehicle. thats all i can really say. its has good sound and such but it is a big suv to be in but i personally dont really like driving in it because i like the maneuverability of a small car or truck.
