I bought my Suburban with 97,000 miles for $7,000 cash and have driven it for 30,000 miles over the last five years mostly on the weekends. I use it for hunting, camping and long trips and has worked out extremely well. It is blast to drive. I have spent $1,100 for new a/c compressor, brakes and a water pump but beyond that it runs like a top. At 16 mpg it sucks down the gas but at this point the depreciation is almost nothing, no financing cost, insurance runs $50 per month and I have little in repairs so it is still reasonably economical to operate. This is daddy's toy and I have lots of fun on the road and off road with it. I expect to still be driving this vehicle for many years
The vehicle has ample power and I like the big square hood. It's like driving an aircraft carrier. It has lots of storage area so I keep my camping and fishing gear in the back and can take off for the wild in a moment's notice.
