The suburban is an important tool for our family.

The suburban is a workhorse. I consider my vehicle a tool, it does not matter to me how fancy it is and is not a status symbol of some sort for me - it gets me where I need to go, accommodates my family plus some and is a very comfortable ride. The suburban has been reliable and very comfortable, it pulled our airs stream effortlessly and we have taken it across the country. I feel safe in it because of its size. We have had some electrical problems with it which seems to be a Chevrolet thing - we've had three and have had electrical issues with all three. The suburban handles well, though having the 2500 means it is a heavy vehicle and it can be hard to control on a curvy road or going down hill usually requiring me to go under the speed limit to stay in control of the vehicle - not a complaint, just a fact. Highway traveling is a breeze. It is my favorite vehicle as far as power goes, I actually prefer a standard transmission in my vehicles because I can control how quickly I get going - that is not an issue at all in our suburban - when I hit the gas pedal she goes. It is held up well to our three children that now adult size teenagers. Also since we are a family of five finding a roomy, comfortable, affordable vehicle is really hard to come by. The suburban (bought used) checked all the boxes. We had a suburban prior to this one and got rid of it prematurely - even though I would like to have a smaller vehicle our lifestyle is not ready for such a change. So the suburban it is.

Great family car for those of you that won't do a minivan!

I love how large it is. I have four kids, so for a family of six it's extremely ideal... especially for those of you (like me) that will never get a minivan. Sorry...won't do it! We can pack it up and it seats us all comfortably and a few extra people when we bring along grandparents. It has nice pickup, and I feel safe and secure driving it and carting my kiddos around. It is an older car, but still runs very well. I do miss some of the newer things on the inside of my other cars, like stereo/back up cam and what not, but I can always add them on if I really want. Overall love this car and the size is great for my big family!

2002 Chevy Suburban four door.

I have a 2002 Chevy Suburban. I like this SUV because it sits up high giving good visibility, It gives me the ability to load things just like a truck would. I have loaded 12 and 16 ft 1 x 5 deck boards. The 12 ft hung out very little and the 16 ft hung out much more but it wasn't extreme. But what I don't like is that there were a few repairs that were needed a short time after we bought it. I felt that these problems should have happened much later. But despite the early repairs it's been fairly reliable.
