Hi every one, new to this list, having just purchased a 2018 Suburban.
My previous SUV was/is a 1999 Yukon SLT.
I just turned 81, and figured it was time to have a road vehicle that I was always not up grading.
I just completed a 1500 mile trip in the Suburban, and was impressed.
Cool and very comfortable, easy handling , breaks well, etc.
The trip was from Coastal Georgia to Dayton Ohio, which takes you thru some mountains.....still I adveraged 27 + MPG on the digital read outs, and miles traveled/fill-up gallons. I did not expect this kind of mileage. So far (local) which I call combined, I'm getting 23-24 mpg easily. Is this what others are getting????
I did read the issues some had with the gas pedal, 4 cylinders vs 8, concerns about the damage the 4 cylinder to 8 can cause, and some have disabled the 4 cylinder activation. Any concerns here?
Also I wanted to ask about Service contracts (extended warranty's), as I mentioned above, I'm now 81, I purchased the Yukon new in 1999, and i have been up grading and banging on it for 20 years. I just installed E fans earlier this year. It will still take me wherever I need to go, but......
I no longer want to 'work' on a vehicle, and I know if something happens, and I don't have a service contract I'll be out there doing it myself.
So if anyone can has any info on reliability/problems to look out for/or service contracts I'd appreciate hearing from you.
Thanks in advance, Ron
