1996 Chevrolet Tahoe LT 4dr SUV 4WD

Review

My wife and I bought this in 2000 with 60K on it. She loves it, and it loves the local Chevy garage. We have replaced the fuel pump at 90K, the alternator at 95K, the tranny at100K (as everyone I know with a '96 has), the old style transfer case solenoid with the new/improved version, and have put two batteries in it. It also has a drinking problem. I top off the coolant about once a month. It now has a leak out of the rear seal of the transfer case (which I'll fix if it ever stops snowing), as well as lifter rattle and high oil pressure readings when first started. The a/c crapped out last year as well. But to borrow an old juice ad, I never have to say, Wow, wish I had a V8 because when the 350 rocks, she rocks!

Favorite Features

V8 power! Stylish looks

Suggested Improvements

Transmission durability. Visor mirrors. The vanity lights always stayed on until I disconnected them. That's what kept draining the second battery, and eventually killed it. Less brake pedal travel. Longer lasting a/c components
