I have had the opportunity to drive a new Suburban and Yukon (somewhat) in the past few weeks; both on some of the Earth's most straightest roads, and dirt roads. Sadly, I am not talented in writing reviews, nor as many of you have learned, gracefully typing the English language on a digital page. A review may be coming.

A Grand Cherokee I rode in around today felt small compared to either.

Finally found the stupid pictures I'd originally intended to post with this...

Rental base level Camry.

It's about 5 metres of car.

Really, the only bad thing is the sodding gearbox that is either in 'eco' (sluggish and laggy) mode or flick the lever over to the 'sports' bit (which is set up backwards) and have it respond reasonably nicely. Though it'll 'reset' itself to 4th every time you do it, which means it will use no higher gear untill you pull the lever, swear, then push it three times to 6th. Which on a motorway is kind of annoying, so I ended up pushing into slug mode while the cruise control was on and pulling it over when I wanted to pass someone.

Also the cruise control is not linked to the eco mode thing, so it does the same thing as my right foot.. presses down, nothing happens, press down more, nothing happens, press down more, drop two gears and jerk all your passengers back and look like an idiot.
Life's too short to drive bad cars.
