2002 Chevrolet Suburban 1500 LS 4WD 4dr SUV (5.3L 8cyl 4A)
The 2002 Z71 Suburban is great for carrying several people and all their stuff. The third seat is reasonable for adults of medium height. Plenty of power for hill climbing, even when fully loaded with people, camping gear and bicycles on the hitch rack. Never runs hot. Good air conditioning, heater, seat heater, stereo, fornt powerseats. Very comfortable backseat for passengers of all ages and heights.
Easy to drive, smooth on the road, comfortable and good visibility for driver and all passengers. Holds anything. Good roofrack. Replaced fuel pump at 111,000 miles and a third member during the extended warranty (maybe 60,000) and shocks at 75,000. Bilsteins ride well. Excellent radio.
13-16 mpg, mostly 14-15. Hard to park. Ipod input. Bluetooth cell phone connection. GPS.
