I'm a mom of 4 very active children and the GMC Suburban has been a lifesaver. It has lots of room for my family and a few friends and lots of cargo space. The kids love it because they can see everything going on. It is a little harder to maneuver due to its length, just don't forget to swing wide when parking or making a turn, it's not done on a dime. Everything from camping chairs, strollers, sweatshirts, ball equipment and coolers fit nicely in the back with room to spare. It's FWD capability gets me anywhere I need to go. It's exterior and interior are simple yet appealing. It has lots of compartments for storage on the inside like sunglass holders, numerous cup holders, remote control compartments, CD compartments and several electrical sites to plug in the oh so important video and TV gadgets. The luggage racks on top give you the flexibility to carry larger items or storage thules. A must have for all soccer moms, just beware it only gets about 10-12 mpg due to the 454 v8 engine.
