My daily driver is an ´85 4x4 Suburban with the 6.2 diesel - 22mpg easily and lots of power. When that motor dies, I'll have it rebuilt.

GM's mistakes (for there are many) include dropping the diesel option from the Suburban. As others said, it has become more of a gussied-up SUV and less a workhorse-with-comforts.

If I ever buy another one, it will be a diesel pre-1992 - hate the way the new models look.
