My '97 Tahoe seems to be an very good
SUV. Bought used two years ago with
only 54000 miles on it. I used the SUV
for recreational purposes about 5k
miles per year. Had a manifold leak,
defective master cylinder, front end
suspension and alternator replaced.
Seems like a lot of replacement for a
fairly unused vehicle. Fortunately
extended warranty covered costs.
Concern regarding durability of
vehicle. Typically expect a truck to
last 150k to 200k miles. The old ones
did anyway. Had less problems with my
Ford truck. It did not encounter any
major problems til after 120k and then
it was only an altenator.
Rides nice, pulls a heavy trailer load
with no problems.
GM should design the engines with more
durability and reliability in mind.
