This is my car - the suburban that I bought second hand.

2008 Chevrolet Suburban Commercial

We got it second hand on craigslist, fixed it up, and it runs well, though a bit of a struggle in the winter time. And does need a bit of repairs from time to time, nothing major, just the usual checkup and oil, etc. It does the job as it should without much fighting.
