1997 Chevrolet Tahoe LS 4dr SUV 4WD

Review

This truck has reliability problems of certain components. Steering sensors have failed twice, fuel pump once $900, transmission $3500. This truck has 75000 miles on it and never pulled a trailer, nor been used off road. Fuel pump and transmission will fail without warning and leave you on the side of the road. Steering sensors cause the truck to turn off the road or into the oncoming lane, but atleast you can get back to town to the shop. I paid 1997 prices and received 1977 reliability. If buying one be sure to get an extended warranty and a cell phone to call tow truck when it breaks down on the road.

Suggested Improvements

Transmission and fuel pump should be made to last longer or have some kind of warning to indicate they are failing. Suspension should be a bit stiffer, rolls too much when cornering.
