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.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Comfortable Ride, Handles Well Excellent Look

Cons: Gas Mileage OK and Maintenance Fair

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: 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.

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.

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 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.

Pros: 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

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Excellent ride.

Cons: none.

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.

Pros: Everything

Cons: nothing yet

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!

Pros: Very spacious, Handles very well, very comfortable drive, backup sensors were cool

Cons: HORRIBLE gas mileage (my HEMI gets way better) a little too big for the garage

'08 Suburban — The big thing about this truck is that it's a major gas hog. I've had to drive a few of them, and costs almost 125 bucks just to fill it up ( at 3.95 a gallon ). The other big thing is it's price tag.. the LTZ goes for 41,500 retail value, however LTZ models also include most of the options dragging that price from 41,500 to nearly 60,000. Just to add a touch screen with GPS, secondary DVD / TV monitor with headphones, chrome liftgate, chrome rims, rear view camera with motion senors.. would run you around 16,000. Keep in mind Chevy also offers 2 tone interior, and a few other options for this truck. It's a

Pros: Big enough to fit about 7 to 8 people

Cons: Gas, Price, Weight.. ( it weights around 7,500 lbs )
