Worth every nickel, purchase price and maintenance costs!
16 years and 214,000 miles later, my 2003 Suburban is still running like a champ, and with basic maintenance expected of a vehicle that age. My son were 2 and 3 when I brought the car home on New Years Eve, grew up in it around town, 10 trips to the Mouse, weekend excursions, and now it is their car for school. However, they do allow dad to drive it rather frequently, particularly to the shop and gas station, but that is as I would have it anyway. The quality if this 2003 is much better than my 2014 Suburban, at least the soft side, though ride and performance of 2014 is still on par.
