It won't die
By Marine Vet on
1999 Chevrolet Tahoe LS 4dr SUV 4WD
Purchased in 2003 used with 38,000 miles and just turned 147,000. This vehicle makes several trips per year to various location of 1000 to 2000 miles in distance. It is like driving in your favorite lounge chair sitting in your living room. Even at 147,000, with regular care it still averages 18- 19 mpg on trips. Replaced fuel pump, alternator and had Major tune up at 95,000 and rebuilt rear end and axles due to bearing wear. After looking at new and "slightly?" used replacements, I will drive this one till it won't move any more. (300,000 maybe?)
Comfortable interior, plenty of room (6'2" and 270 lbs) decent gas mileage for the engine and vehicle weight. Come on people, when you by a 2 1/2 ton, 4 wheel dr, V-8 and complain about the mileage, maybe it's not the vehicle for you.
