This is my 2nd Suburban and I'm
pleased with it. Its comfortable for
my 6'3" frame, roomy for my family and
their friends, and a great all-around
vehicle. The Vortec 5.7 is a reliable
engine developing sufficient power for
towing a mid-size pop-up camper with
fully loaded cabin. Fuel economy
varies with speed and throttle
finesse, but ranges from 12.5 around
town to 21 on the hwy. See "Suggested
Imrovements" for my complaints.
extended road trip comfort, looks, 4x4
traction, around town drivability.
Needs stronger brakes, and a recall
for the coolant loss from the intake
manifold. These are well known and
documented problems that can be fixed,
but GM refuses to acknowlege. Their
execs need to do a work/study program
at Honda or Toyota or Nissan.
