    Keep what you have and rent something when you need it for travelling. You'll be saving a ton of money.

    So far for me just oil changes on my 32K mile 2016 Tahoe LT.

    I have spoken to dozens of 2015 plus Tahoe,Suburban and Yukon XL owners from Miami to NYC and so far none had anything negative to say about them..Some were Livery drivers with between 150K -200K miles on them..I am not saying every vehicle made had zero issues but I think some issues people had were blown out of proportion.

    It seems every single day I see more late model Tahoe,Suburban and Yukon Denali XL'S out there.

    Definitely C. Especially since you don't have to worry about the damn AFM. And that's the one to pull a TT with, anyway. Made for that kind of stuff.

    The K2xx SUVs have also grown on me by now, but it'll still be quite some time before my wife gets one of those. Hell, she just got the 2010 in September! :deal:

    And if the next generation SUVs will have the same damn AFM system like the 2019 trucks will :badidea:, then the current generation SUVs will be the last we'll ever get.

    Before I bought my 2016 Tahoe I thought about getting a 2013 Tahoe as 2013 was the last year before Direct Injection..With that said I have not heard of any issues with Direct Injection on the 5.3 or the 6.2.

    All the ones I looked at had over 60K miles and most had over 100K miles and the price of them was 40K at the time in 2016..I figured finding a low mileage Hoe would be next to impossible as most people buy them for long distance..I did find a couple for low mileage ones but they either had spotty service records or worse yet no service record..I only went Chevrolet-GMC Dealers..I would not buy one off a different make dealer.

    If you buy a 2013 2500 you will end up putting money into it as I am sure it will need some work.

    Just IMHO.

    On the other hand Gary, @intheburbs has spent less than $50 in repairs on his 2500 and my buddy's '07 Classic Silverado Duramax didn't need any work until it passed 200k miles whereas our 1500s are seeing the same repairs at near half that. The cab of course is the same but the chassis, suspension and steering are more durable than ours.
