2008 Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid 4dr SUV 4WD (6.0L 8cyl gas/electric hybrid 4A)
For a vehicle this size it is relatively quick and a fun ride. Handling is good, and most importantly, the mileage thus-far is performing up to stated claims. You can tell it is a hybrid as you drive it at lower speeds since it feels like you're driving an electric golf cart. Sometimes, there is hesitation from a dead stop as it decides whether to use electric, gas, or a combo of the two to get the truck moving. A minor quibble. Interior controls are intuitive and easy to figure out. It lacks some bells and whistles that vehicles of this price tend to have, however, such a programmed seating, heated outside mirrors, and 6-disc CD player. All in all, I love it!
Mileage that meets/exceeds stated claims. Smooth ride, even over rougher surfaces. Good acceleration and torque at passing speeds. Comfortable interior seats. Attractive exterior design.
Get rid of all the decals - we know it's a hybrid! I had all the 'hybrid' decals on the side and front/back windows removed. Third-row seats not built for anyone but kids and I wish they would figure out a better way to lay-flat or removed the back seats. Better door latches; have to slam doors.
