1999 Chevrolet Tahoe LS 4dr SUV 4WD


I must admit, I haven't owned it long, but a very good vehicle, EXCEPT for the brakes. Between the increased pedal travel 'till somewhat firm and a mushy pedal beyond that, creates continual uncertainty of having enough room in front of you to stop. Probably because of the 4whl ABS. The dealer checked them out and more than one person at the dealership said "that's the way they are, you have to get used to them". Otherwise it has a drive train which (so far) has been dependable and gets very good gas mileage for its size (16-18 hiway).

Best Features

It's a highway cruiser (65-75 is effortless) with the ride and power. My rig is fully loaded and besides everything working well, the controls are well designed and where they should be. Like the rear air and rear "barn" doors over the one-piece lift up tailgate.

Worst Features

BRAKES! Or at least have GM help create "upgrade" kits to improve the braking; whether it be pads, rotors, or whatever. The standard Firestone tires have the worse wet traction ever experienced. It would be nice to have more steering feedback at the wheel.
