I guess as far as a modern car goes, it's ok. I transitioned from a 2001 Tahoe and found this vehicle lacking in so many ways. The whole thing is cheaply made and the most surprising parts are plastic ... cheap plastic at that.
The thing I found most disappointing and the frustrating is the "infotainment" system. I has USB ports, but won't connect to my phone. You can't actually use the phone, because no one can hear you, if you're traveling at highway speeds. Odd, I can go 80 MPH on my chopper and people hear me just fine through my helmet. My plantronics headset offers more functionality when connecting to my phone. If you want to make a phone call, you have to have 30 minute conversation with the vehicle while it verifies and re-verifies and checks again to make sure you want to use a particular phone and that it is calling the right number. Then there's the Nav. Straight from 1982. This thing is so feature poor, I don't even know where to start. You can pay for traffic and weather, but I'll be damned if it won't route you around traffic or even provide you with decent ETA information unless you're driving in optimal conditions. In optimal conditions, I can figure that out myself ... useless. Then theirs the AV inputs. This is a 2013 car and is still stuck on RCA jacks. Really? No Really? Forget wireless, this thing won't even take HDMI.
In any case, this vehicle is great if you're getting rid of your 1972 suburban and want an upgrade. If you actually expect a modern vehicle, look elsewhere. If you have your heart set on a Suburban, don't get the infotainment system. Go to an aftermarket shop and get something from this decade installed. It'll probably be cheaper anyway.
