This Is A Great Truck! — This was a great truck! I still miss driving this truck even though it was 20 years old. This truck had a great suspension and soaked up the bumps like nothing out there! It wasn't the fastest and it shifted pretty hard from 1st to 2nd gear. Sometimes when going into 2nd the tires would squeal how hard it shifted! We always drove it like that though and it never failed.the truck got about 14 driving around and The tank was so huge that one time when a couple of friends and I were driving to town it died because we were going down a pretty steep hill and all the gas went to one side of the tank! It started right up though and we continued on! The ABS system wasn't very good on dirt roads but it worked great on pavement!!! The stops were very straight and stopped in a heartbeat!! However, if the ABS was on a surface with a lot of traction (pavement) and you pushed the brakes all the way then the truck would stall. It was wierd but that's how it was. This truck has a very good quality feel to it and feels very safe when riding in it. The steering was really good and the handling was average. This truck is perfect for someone who wants a truck that can take them to work or to school and can carry a lot of people or cargo. This would be a good beginners truck and is built like a tank for people who like feeling safe when they drive

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great back seat room, Very comfortable captains chairs, Great braking , Great ride

Cons: None

Hmmm — Too costly for gas! The interior and exterior were in excellent condition. I loved the way it drove until the brake booster decided to act up and quit. I drove the care everywhere, had so much fun, until gas prices started to rise!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: The size could do anything with it just about and transport all needs and lots of people1

Cons: GAS!

The Rockin' Burb — When i got the Burb it already had 280,000 miles on it. Now it has well over 300,000. Then engine is tired. It has been around the block. But don't get me wrong, the 350 chevy in there could be turned into a beast if i had the time. Its a pretty sleek led sled. its been called a limousine before. the only thing i never really liked was the color.. Ugly Metallic Teal.. but it has only broke down once since i owned it and it gets okay gas milage for a giant SUV. and because its giant theres plenty of blind spots. but that dosent matter when youre off roading!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Tough Truck!

Cons: Shes tired

Plenty Of Cargo Space And Horsepower — This is the family vehicle that I was taught to drive in. Being an SUV, the wheelbase is large, which takes a bit of getting used to, especially when parking. Generally, I'm not a fan of auto design from the 1980s onward, but I feel that Chevy managed to shape good-looking trucks and SUVs up through the 1990s, and this Suburban is no exception. Gas mileage is about what you might expect of a V8-powered vehicle, though with a 42 gallon fuel tank, it doesn't need to be filled up all that often (though it can get mighty expensive when you finally do need to fill up.) Behind the wheel, I found the Suburban to be surprisingly responsive. I've always felt completely in control of the vehicle whenever an opportunity to drive it has arisen, even when driving off-road. Overall, this vehicle is a pleasure to drive, and I would recommend it to anybody who seeks a sturdy, reliable vehicle with lots of cargo space and off-road capabilities.

Pros: Lots of power to spare, very roomy with seating for eight, quite durable.

Cons: As you might expect of an SUV, gas mileage is nothing to get excited about.

Great All Around Suv If You Can Afford $100/week In Gas — This suburban is a beast! It is big and everyone stays out of the way! It is a great vehicle, plenty of room for people or cargo. The only drawback is the cost of gas. And one of the best things about it is that its NOT A FORD

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

Pros: Heavy Duty, Roomy, Powerful

Cons: Gas Mileage

Bottom Line: We'll Gladly Buy The Gas For It If We Don't Need To Have To Fix It All The Time. — Got one used for cheap, 257K miles. We love it and we want our next vehicle to also be a Suburban. The 350 engine is reliable, and since it isn't a 4x4 it gets almost the mileage my '94 Silverado gets. There's plenty of room for everything and everyone.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Comfortable and reliable

Cons: It does use plenty of gas
