1999 Chevrolet Tahoe LS 4dr SUV


Review

We bought this car loving the style and abailible space for hauling sport equipment around. We expected this beautiful car to become the end of our sanity. It would have cost us less in the long run to buy a new car at that time. We had to put in a new trans, new steering and fuel pump, new locks (all broke at the same time), fix the sagging doors ect. All in a matter of 2 years. Still needs some work but we are fresh out of money and don't want the car anymore. What a lemon.


Favorite Features

Exterior is beautiful. The interior is comfortable and very roomy. Great radio.


Suggested Improvements

I don't know where to begin. Needs to be a better product all the way around.

Review

I've had my '99 Tahoe for a year and some change. I was most definitely enjoying it before the gas prices went soaring. Even with over 100k miles, it still has pretty good get up and go. I had to get the transmission rebuilt at 126K but, I was told it failed because of faulty maintenance. It's extremely comfortable inside. Over all I love it.


Suggested Improvements

Make lights brighter and add fog lights as an option.

1999 Chevrolet Tahoe LT 4dr SUV 4WD


Review

I have a 99 Tahoe Z71 powered by a LT1/340hp V8 (Yes, its original). Rear axle seals have always been a problem. Finally had to replace the axles. Brakes a huge problem; finally replaced with "greenstuff brakes", the jury is still out on that verdict. Transmission and engine still real strong after 121k miles. It's all the small stuff; power steering pump, alternator, fuel pump. However, try to tow 8000 pounds with your Toyota over the PA mountains! Gas mileage is 14/17. I can only use super unleaded fuel. I had to replace the entire exhaust system because both cats went out at 90k miles. Absolutely crazy; cats usually outlast the vehicle.


Favorite Features

340 horsepower; the heated seats are like volcano strength; with fuel flowmaster exhaust and K&N FIPK, the engine really roars.


Suggested Improvements

BRAKES! Try something else. Supercharge the engine.

Review

My experience with this vehicle was very good. It held up very well. We had only minor service or mechanical problems, nothing out of the norm.


Favorite Features

We enjoyed the comfortable ride and the visibility. It was roomy.


Suggested Improvements

The brakes were soft. We never had a problem, but had to move the pedal a long distance to get it to stop.
