We bought our Tahoe when it was only 6 months old. We instantly fell in love with it. It now has 100,000 miles on it and we have no plans on getting rid of it! It plows through anything and is invaluable in the snow! We were thankful of our 5 year warranty, though. The master brake cylinder went out at about 80k, the U-joints went out twice, and all new brakes. It's ironic, though, because since the warranty expired, there has been no problems for a few years! It is the best there is for towing, off-road, and driving around town. Tahoes are hit or miss. You either get lucky with a very good one, like us, or you end up with a real lemon. Be careful, and good luck!
5.7L V-8, leather, push-button 4WD, VERY COMFORTABLE! Suprising road manners.
Excellent overall vehicle for family
trips and outdoor events - Roomy,
Powerfull and good fuel economy given
its size. I have put 100k miles on it
since purchase and just now starting
to need some repoairs at 142K!
I drove this vehicle daily back and
forth from worcester, ma to warwick, ri
(52 miles one way). i estimate that on
average i drive about 150 miles/day. it
had been very reliable until i got up to
the 120,000 mile marker where things
started to get very expensive. as far
as just "underhood" work goes,
EVERYTHING from the head gaskets up i
have replaced at least twice. blew the
tranny and t-case at the same time
around 145,000. but other then that, it
i did have it lifted with 35" swampers
on it, but i didn't beat on it. it was
more or less a show truck. i just love
it when i'm slowly driving down the
street and i can turn heads.
the poppet valves on the injectors, FIX
THEM. fuel pump is loud out of the box,
and only gets louder. front end lifting
sort of burns a hole in your pocket
(because it's IFS)
