Worth 20 grand

Vehicle: 1997 Chevrolet Tahoe LS 2dr SUV 4WD

Unless they make a new model or Hummer makes a 2 door, the value will go up on the body style. Its value is also in the power to weight ratio. It can pull more than I think it should. The spline on the drive shaft can be damaged. If you sell yours, always remember, if the dealers say it's hot, then it is. Anything that ever broke was for a reason directly linked to the condition it was exposed to. Plastic tabs for example on the interior, were not designed for endurance, but for ease of assembly. Put Baer disk brakes on all four, and replace injectors. Cost of repair much less than interest on new loan alone, exceptional recreational second vehicle.




The best suv out there

I AM THE SECOND OWNER AND LAST OWNER OF THIS VEHICLE. THIS TRUCK IS A DREAM, THE INTERIOR I BELIEVE IS THE BEST DESIGN AND MATERIALS I HAVE EXPERIENCED WITH ANY VEHICLE THAT I HAVE RIDEN IN. I WILL NEVER SELL MY TRUCK. IT IS VERY VERSITILE DESIGN.




Over priced pos

Vehicle: 1997 Chevrolet Tahoe LS 2dr SUV 4WD

We bought it at 18 months old. It was basically new. Pretty good service until 75000 miles then it turned to a POS (piece os Sh..) The intake manifold gaskets started leaking for no reason. $800 at the GM dealer. Same thing happened to my dad's 96 Suburban and my best friends 99 Suburban. 80,000 miles the condenser coil went out. They had to completely disassemble the dash.$667. Never rode the same after that. Then the ERG valve. By the time they got through with us that cost another $500. Like I said...POS




Power!!

So far I have loved this vehicle. Sometimes I wonder if I really need that much power but the truck is great. I have had Chevy Cars, an S-10, a GMC Blazer (2dr as well) and now my Tahoe. Everyone likes riding in my truck. It's great. Powerful, comfortable, smooth and easy to control.
