We're at that same decision point on our 2004 Suburban we bought in 2013. It's a fully optioned Z71 (only think it doesn't have that was available that year is 4 wheel steering). And has served us well, particularly given we only paid @$12,000 out the door for it at the time.

It has a 1 year old transfer case and suspension. But, it needs a lot of cosmetic work (headliner is dry rotting, stuff like that). It also has it's good and bad days. Some days it drives and rides perfectly. Some days it creaks and moans like it wants you to put it out of its misery.

We rarely use it. We drove it this weekend for about the first time in six weeks where we actually needed it (6 passengers). I drive it on weekends just because it sits outside and is easier then pulling the LYRIQ out of the garage.

MomHawk just ordered a new 2024 Mustang EcoBoost Premium Convertible to replace her 2005 Mustang. We're thinking of trading both in and going down to two cars at least for a while.

On the other side the Suburban is only costing us insurance, and it is nice to have the bigger car for hauling, etc. Decisions, decisions.....

No question about the 2002 rx300. 1mz rebuild begins on the second week of July.

I can’t imagine not having 93 and e85 at almost every station.

Also, tornados are terrifyingly fascinating.

Idk, the only 10c price difference is concerning considering it's the only place around to get 93. Here it's usually ~$1 difference.
