Hi, I am having to buy a Suburban. Moving 1500 miles - Texas to South Florida - with 3 big dogs (oh boy!). Have choice between 1999 LT. 125k miles. Leather, great condition. $2750. Or. 2002 LT with 104k miles. Leather. All is fine except clear coat is flaking, especially bad on hood. Price is $4900. I'm inclined to go with the 1999. Aside from the paint issue, the interior quality of the 99 seems much higher, e.g., it has woodgrain. Looks like Chevy scaled back on quality between 99 and 02. Would appreciate advice, thoughts, and your smart 2 cents' worth!
