I'm very pleased with my Tahoe after 74k miles. No transmission issues but have had the ABS module go out twice. First time was under warranty and the second time I had it repaired for about $200 instead of the $1,200 the dealer wanted. Also came with a 5 yr warr instead of 12 month. The rest of the braking system is great, still on original pads and rotors. Plenty of power to tow trailer and people. And even thought gas mileage isn't great, it's better than what some Ford and Dodge owners I know are getting.
Love the cargo doors instead of the liftgate. Front row center seat is much more useful than the console it came with.
I am extremely happy with my 2000 Tahoe. "Knock on Wood" I haven't had any problems with mine. Prior to owning a Chevy I drove Ford Explorers and there is no comparism. I had my share of lemons with Ford. My Tahoe currently has 88,000 miles and still drives like it did when it had 40,000. I would buy another Tahoe.
The transmission went out at 70000 miles. The ABS system failed at 64000 miles. The vehicle was serviced only by the dealership and after numerous trips to complain about the ABS braking problem, it was never duplicated when tested by a service technician. Therefore the problem was never fixed. After the warranty expired, then and only then was the problem identified. I replaced the ABS system, the rotors, brake pads and the emergency brake pad at a cost of $1300.00. The dealership wanted over $2500.00 to fix everything. I want even begin to talk about the transmission being replaced. So, I would not recommend this vehicle to anyone, nor will I ever purchase another Chevy product.
The vehicle looks good and the interior is comfortable. It handles nicely and has plenty of space.
Improve the transmission problems (I know at least 10 Tahoe owners who had to replace the transmission), correct the ABS system, and the AC and Heating system need to be overhauled.
This vehicle is possessed! The windows
open, the lumbar in the seats change,
and the clock changes time at will. We
rarely drive this vehicle due to its
unreliability, but since it's leased,
we're stuck with it. The dealership
has done numerous repairs, but now that
our 3 year warranty is over, we're on
our own with the same issues, even
though the vehicle only has about
32,000. Look at the Tahoes as you
drive down the highway; notice how many
new vehicles have light bulbs burned
out? Not a well made vehicle; Chevy
should be ashamed!
Interior Size - not as big as my
previous Suburban, obviously, but the
size was good for making short runs to
There is no substitute for quality. I
think my next vehicle will be a Lexus.
I would gladly have paid more for
reliabilty. After 20+ years, this
vehicle will be my last Chevy!
Overall a great vehicle. If you're
looking at an Expedition reconsider.
The Tahoe has much more power and a
better ride. Has been to the dealer
once for the power window on front
passenger side, other than that no
5.3L V8. Towing capacity. Overall ride
and body style.
Optional rear entertainment system and
more better rear cup holders. Sound
system not as good as it could be.
