So in love!

Vehicle: 1997 Chevrolet Tahoe LT 2dr SUV 4WD

I couldn't be more THRILLED that this is my first vehicle! I was going to trade it for a small car, until I got it on the road. Had to fix the rear brake lines to get it road worthy. currently need to fix one stabilizer bar, front brakes could go any day, part of the front drivers side frame is rotted pretty bad, the vehicle clicks funny when reversing and there's a leak in the gas tank near the top. She had about 427k when I got her. after putting on almost 1000k a month since Oct, I'm STILL in love. I will be sad when she has nothing left to give, hopefully that won't be for a long time yet

Love it...but oh my!

Vehicle: 1997 Chevrolet Tahoe LT 2dr SUV 4WD

Love this car for its great lines, 350, availability of aftermarket parts and its ability to move in the snow. Unfortunately, we're on our 4th transmission; this one a warranty replacement for the new one we put in when the second one went south. The next time it eats a set of rotors I'm going to spend some real money and buy a pair that should last. There's also a sensor in the power steering that goes sour routinely and makes for some exciting wheel play on snow and ice and is in fact, a serious liability. Anyway, glad to have mine and no intention of letting it go; it's one of tomorrow's classics!

True american design

Vehicle: 1997 Chevrolet Tahoe LT 2dr SUV 4WD

I bought this truck because it is simply the best design chevy ever came out with along with the infamous 5.7 power house. I think this truck is more reliable then my past too brand new trucks, no problems, and it rides so good. I have room for family despite it is a two door but a little elbow grease and you will get in the back. Anyone thinking of purchasing one of these you will be very pleased i think, and I just hit 182,000 miles this morning and its still trucking.

Vehicle: 1997 Chevrolet Tahoe LT 2dr SUV 4WD

This is one of the greatest vehicles I have ever owned. Mine, though it has 150K miles, was extremely well cared for. Safe, reliable, fun to drive, easy to park(tight turning radius)and there really is no substitute for a Chevy 350 V8!! Mileage is better than I expected; 16+mpg around town. (has aftermarket air filter) I've owned 3 Suburbans and never ot more than about 12mpg with them. Of course that was in my younger, heavy foot days! (and cheap gas)Its a classy looking truck and somewhat rare to find in the 2door body style. I agree with another reviewer here.. ..If you can find one of these in good condition, BUY IT! They don't make them like this anymore. A true classic!




Solid after all these years

This has been a great truck. I drive it off road about 4 weeks a year and in the snow during winter in Colorado. It handles either great as well as dry pavement. It could get better mileage but hey, it's a full sized SUV what do you expect?
