    I have just purchased my 4th Suburban in the 94-99 year range. My last one was a 94 and it had over 350K miles on it. The reasons I like these vehicles are 1) They are quite easy to work on, so much room you can almost sit in the engine compartment 2) Parts are fairly cheap and it's easy to find used parts if needed (a plus if you break down on the road) 3) If well maintained, these things will almost last forever 4) If not well maintained, they're still gonna las a long time

    Many have spoken about the fact that you have to be prepared for the sub 20mpg mileage. I think that you not only have to be prepared to pay the price at the pump, but also be willing to maybe change your driving habits a bit. I often tell folks that driving my Suburban is as comfortable as sitting on my couch in my living room. But, instead of watching TV, I'm watching the world go by. My experience was that to avoid huge expenditures on fuel, I had to learn to just relax and enjoy the ride. It's tough to not want to be at the front of the line all of the time.

    If you want to have a dependable and comfortable ride and aren't always in a big hurry, these vehicles would be a good pick.

    I'll second that!

    Before getting my burb I was always in the left lane running between 70 - 80 mph.
    Now I cruise in the right hand lane relaxed between 60 - 65 ish
