1997 Chevrolet Tahoe LT 2dr SUV 4WD
Being 6'8" its the only vehicle I can drive 15 hrs and still be able to walk afterwards. Added K&N intake and comp cams components to engine great edition. Gets close to 18 around town and 20 on freeway. Planning on replacing brakes with aftermarket disks. Found Optima battery to solve charging problem and genuine AC Delco alternator, haven't had a problem since. Keep fuel above quarter tank and fuel pump lasts a long time. Recently was in a horrible wreck where vehicle was totalled, no passengers were injured, vehicle did everything it was supposed to. Love it so much am going to buy it back and do a frame up rebuild. Recommend one to anyone looking for used SUV just keep up on maintence
Engine is awesome and interoir is roomy. Maintenance tranny once a year and it lasts much longer. Mine is original and hasn't had a problem yet.
Certain problems seem to plague them but with proper research and preventative maintenance, most can be avoided or repaired cheaply and vehicle will last a long time.
