Purchased the truck with 24000 miles when it came off lease in 2003. It has 105,000 miles on it now, and the only thing I have done to it is add a battery and a U-joint. I have used synthetic oil and changed it religiously every 5000 miles, if you do this, it will run forever, so it seems. Suggestion: always set the parking brake before placing it in park.. if you do this then the transmission won't have to hold the weight of the vehicle. Great ride, would drive it anywhere. Comfortable on long trips from GA to CO. 4wd has been valuable. Gas mileage is pretty bad, but you get what you pay for. 16 MPG. Ive been to 19 but also 14 too..(running 285 tires).
Plush interior. Two tone leather is really good looking. Color keyed bumpers and the grille guard make it look great. First generation Z Tahoe. It's more of a truck than the new ones. Pulls trailers and boats easily. You'll look in the rear view to see if its still there..
Stock radio is too weak for the speakers and it is worthless essentially. (aftermarket replacement suggested) Chrome caps on the lug nuts are pricey and they crack. Brakes are spongy. Body rolls in curbs bc of its heavy duty shocks.. youll get used to it.
