1999 Chevrolet Tahoe SUV LT 4dr SUV 4WD


Review

I love this ride. I have 117000 on it and only have had to deal with the dreaded clunk when starting from a complete stop. I had it checked by my local mechanic. He DID find a front universal joint going out, but everything else looked fine. It pulls trailers effortlessly and is comfortable enough to take a nap in on long trips where you need to stop for a quick nap. Bought car when it had 75000 on it. It was a lease up in Michigan. Some rust on bumpers and interior seat bolts, but nothing major. What ever happened to the standard undercoating all cars use to get. I guess that stopped in the 70's. LOL


Favorite Features

Chicks dig the heated leather seats. Strong motor. Less mechanical trouble than Fords I've owned with half the milage on them.


Suggested Improvements

Concerned about trailer towing. Seems to be geared rather tall. Not sure if this will hurt the drive train.

Review

Great drive train but the brakes suck. Entirely too small for the vehicle. 65000 on the vehicle and I am ready to install the 4th set of rotors and pads. Dealerships don the halo and claim no defect in the vehicle. Talk to ex Chevy dealership personnel and you get a different story,the brakes suck because they're too small for the truck.


Favorite Features

Great engine and transmission. Good performance.


Suggested Improvements

If your looking for a Tahoe, buy a 2000 or higher. The brakes were upgraded to 4 wheel disc.

Review

I'm having the cluck problem again (at 51000 miles)after having a new transmission put in last time among other things (see my previous review). It was corrected for a while. I'm convinced there is a design flaw which cannot be fixed with parts. I'll be getting rid of this thing as soon as the dealership temporarily fixes it again.

Review

My parents bought this car for me at christmas time. It has 90 thousand miles on it and still runs great. I am 16 years old and love being able to drive it when ever I want. The only problem that I have had with it is the transfer case began to leak so I had to get it sealed. The gas milage is not great, but once you get used to filling up every few days, its ok.


Favorite Features

Stereo, 4x4 durring the snow season, and the heated leather seats.


Suggested Improvements

Needs better gas milage.

Review

This vehicle has met all of our expectations. It is safe and reliable. We would recommend this vehicle to anyone in the market for a large SUV.


Favorite Features

Our favorite features are the automatic self dimming mirrors. The heated seats are also very nice.


Suggested Improvements

The A/C blower is very loud when it is on high.

Review

Pros: Smooth ride(4X4 models). Plenty of power/cargo space. AutoTrac system provides exceptional stability on slick surfaces; allows economy of 2WD. The tailgate provides maximum flexibility for recreation. Interior ergonomically excellent. Cons: Prod quality in Aug '99 after UAW strike very poor. Fit and finish problems obvious; mechanical problems surfaced. Purchase an extended warranty. Overall: A joy to own. I recommend this vehicle ONLY if you plan to purchase a warranty.


Favorite Features

AutoTrac and electronic transfer case.


Suggested Improvements

Chevrolet production quality is lacking and should be improved.

Review

I purchased the vehicle used with 38,000 miles. I have taken the Tahoe on a couple of trips and have enjoyed having the V8 and the space. I had the dealership perform the 45,000 mile service on the car. I have noticed only one thing out of the ordinary with my Tahoe. The lights both interior and exterior flicker with the car running. I am not sure what the problem is ,because I have a new battery. Any ideas?


Favorite Features

I enjoy being able to see the entire road and the spacious of the interior.


Suggested Improvements

I agree that the brake pedal feels mushy when pressed. It has taken some getting use to.
