My 97 tahoe lt

by on
Vehicle: 1997 Chevrolet Tahoe 2dr SUV 4WD

Had to replace engine around 85,000 miles, then around 130,000 miles had to replace head and vortec gaskets. Also had to replace radiator, shop busted old one when they replaced the gaskets. Still on original tires. Seats are fully adjustable,power windows, rear hatch style doors w/washer n blade, cruse control low mileage on mine due to the fact I drive a 18 wheeler.




The hoe

Vehicle: 1997 Chevrolet Tahoe 2dr SUV 4WD

I bought the hoe and ever since I've loved it. Awesome horsepower with a few upgrades, "headers, K and N air filter, performance exhaust." With a fuel system flush and tranny flush I have gotten better fuel economy but for the ponies its pushing I'm ok with it. It's awesome for mudding and pull offs. But if working the overdrive transmission it needs a BG tranny flush and the conditioner for protection. I've had to do regular maintenance but what vehicle doesn't need it. If your looking for fun go with General Motors.




2 door monsters

Vehicle: 1997 Chevrolet Tahoe 2dr SUV 4WD

I have a 2 door Tahoe that has been the best vehicle I have every owned. This SUV has seen a lot of road and dirt. With 175000 miles on it I have put this truck through hell and back. I have put very little money into this truck.with no leaks, no smoke, great handling, this still a very reliable monster. The only disappointment is that Chevy does not make a 2 door Tahoe any more.
