Like A Rock...NOT
By Frattelli on 08/08/02 00:00 AM (PDT)

1998 Chevrolet Tahoe LT 4dr SUV 4WD

Review

2 transmissions, #1 at 22K #2 at 34K, manifold gasket, brakes x 5, radiator, water pump x 2, tailight housings burned up, electric doors, continual AC problems, front end shimmys since day one, leather driver seat worn-out @ 20K miles, shocks, springs; it's hemoraging coolant as I type this. $5,000.00 out of pocket since 36K; now has 70K miles...do the math. This vehicle was $40K so, when I hear about lay-offs at GM or how the Japanese manufactuers are kicking our butts, I just shrug anymore. "Like a rock" my a$$ !

1998 Chevrolet Tahoe Review

Review

This truck is a brilliant package. Towing is bliss with the power of the Vortec 350. The interior is well designed, everything is right where it should be. I have 81,500 miles on my truck and there isn't a squeek or rattle to be found. The 4WD autotrac works flawlessly in low traction situations. The transmission performs wonderful...smooth shifts, with or without towing. I have yet to find something I do not like about this truck! I recently made a 1,500 mile trip and the truck averaged 21 mpg on the highway doing 75 mph. I am not complaining with all of the available power and torque on tap. JOB WELL DONE CHEVROLET!

Review

I purchased this Tahoe used with 68K miles. I'm up to 78K, and haven't had truck for a year yet. I've only had to replace the water pump, due to a leaky shaft seal. The truck has been great! I'm 6'7", and don't fit many of the other trucks, as I guess they're designed for women...... Anyway, I don't have any problems with this truck, the mileage is great as long as you keep in mind this ain't no Honda Civic. I've ridden in Civics, I'm much happier in the Tahoe.

Review

Breaks 3 times in 4 years 57000 miles. Speed sensitve steering slipping again 2 times. Leaking coolant at intake manifold. bolts not even tight. New waterpump at 48000. New alternator at 49000 miles. Air condition controls, compressor still runs when turned switch is in off position. Been replaced at 37000 miles. Was supposedly fixed 39000 miles doing same thing. Did not fix again, thank God i leave where it is hot 90% of the time. Evertime you get it fixed ther is something else. I have a 1994 ford f150, Knock on A BIG peace of wood. has but one thing and that was a transmission slip that a $150 fixed. CHEVY LIKE A ROCK! YEA RIGHT

High Cost of Ownership

Review

I previously had a Suburban - which was almost zero trouble. The 1998 Tahoe by comparison has cost me almost $4,000 in various repairs. Brakes, AC Compressor, water pump and cooling system, computer & electronics. All was out of warranty when it happened. If you purchase a 1998 Tahoe, invest in an extended warranty. It may be well worth your money.

TAHOE -STABILITY

Review

ON ROUGH ROADS THE TAHOE IS HORRID. I SUSPECT THE DESIGN IS POOR AS ON ANY ROAD WHERE ONE FINDS ROUGH ROADS THE CAR LOOSES ITS ABILITY TO STEER PROPERLY. I HAVE TRIED EVERYTHING AND AM CONVINCED THAT THE TAHOE IS A BAD DESIGN.IT IS A SCARY THING TO DRIVE ON BAD ROADS

Review

I have had the Tahoe for almost 2.5 years and have replace 3 gaskets (100bucks),all 4 shocks (200bucks), a water pump(300 bucks), the leather seat is ripping and the breaks twice. I sure am glad I bought a Chevy. Oh yeah I still have a intermitent vibration in the steering which they can not find, not bad for a 3 year old POS
