This is the fourth suburban that I have owned and the first one that I have bought brand new. It has served me well in every function that I have used it. I occasionally have to drive off road to job sites in my job, only got stuck once and that was in a plowed field. I love the traction in deep snow which is needed for my driveway which is 600 feet long. It has great control during heavy rainstorms also. All this plus a great ride on the highway too. I have a big pop up camping trailer and it tows like it's not even there. I have had it loaded down and pulling a loaded 14 ft trailer moving people and furniture and it has performed excellently. Great ride for only having 2 wheel drive.
I have only had to replace the electric window motors in the back doors under warranty. So the maintenance cost has been super low. Of course I've had to replace normal items that wear out, brakes, tires, belts, etc., but no mechanical expenses ar all. Also, excellent radio/cd sound, ac, and heater
