A Great "lok At Me Suv" Even When You're Not Boosting It. — Overall this is a decent vehicle. There is an electical issue that plagues a lot of GM automobiles.So my advice to anyone buying this SUV or any GM made vehicle, make SURE you have/get an extended bumper to bumper warranty.

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

Pros: Room and decent power for this heavy SUV.

Cons: Gas (like any SUV of this class.

Love It — This is a great family vehicle. I have 3 kids and I never hear a peep out of them when we take long road trips. Everyone is VERY comfortable. The six speed transmission and active cylinder management is great for fuel economy. It is very quiet and has an extremely smooth ride for a 4WD.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great mileage fore its size, very comfortable, perfect in the winter

Cons: None

Best In Class Value — Very roomy cargo area, major job to replace headlight bulb by removing grill and inside fender well cover, 6 speed automatic transmission is great, plenty of power to tow heavy trailer, good highway mileage for the size and weight class

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

Pros: Lots of space

Cons: Rear seats don't adjust and not comfortable

A Suv Larger Than Most Apts — Utility unrivaled and more of everything than you will probably ever need. Every guy should drive this at least once. It handles decent for its size, no real bling spots, exhaust sounds awesome, you have to have running boards because of the height.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Power, command seating

Cons: Hard to park, putting gas in it is a nightmare

Poor Quality Control. — Purchased this vehicle a few months ago and it has been in the shop four times with less than 2,000 miles. It would repeatedly stall while driving. There still seems to be a problem with its acceleration. It still seems to hesitate. My wife hates this vehicles and doesn't feel safe to drive in it.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Size

Cons: Poor quality control

Overall:

Going Back And Forth To Service Dept Is Getting Very Old!!!! — Purchased 09 5.3L v8 4WD LT in June. Back and forth to service dept 5 times for shuddering. Now dealing with another dealership. Vehicle has intermittent vibration and shuddering upon acceleration, strength varies vibration at times slight other times vehicle shakes. Hesitation, seems to struggle, gets bogged down in lower gears, with acceleration especially while trying to pass or go up inclines. No codes or TSBs told we just have to deal with it. Didn't plunk down a lrg bundle of money to just deal with a car that shudders. Happens inconsistently but enough to be a nuisance. Customer service at service dept and with GM corporate very poor, feel like they are not standing behind their product. Big concerns as to the quality of this product if we are having problems in the 1st month what's to happen after 20,000 miles. Really want to love my new car but this issue has tainted what otherwise would be a fun vehicle to drive. Gas mileage has been avg 18mpg have not used E85 in it yet(no stations around here carry it). Fits 8 passengers comfortably even with 2 car seats. Hands free calling and Onstar are nice features.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Passenger and cargo capacity

Cons: Reliability,concerns with quallity, poor customer service,
