This is the most amazing vehicle made.
I use this vehicle for work and tow heavy trailers almost every time it is used.
We have put 220,000 miles on it and it is running strong.
You cannot kill this vehicle if you tried.

I have over 200k on mine and its 99 percent original.. I used the mobil 1 oils, and serviced everything like i should on time.. bought gas at newer gas stations in town. I use it to tow full size trucks and boats around with out a prob.. it could use a little more ummphh behind it.. but in respect most of what i tow equals over 10k lbs.
I sell parts and work on cars for a living.. and it seems I have found those that only change the oil in the engine.. and neglect everything else seem to be the ones have the issues with trans missions and alternators..
same with any car the better you maintain it, the longer it will last.. and for my tahoe i do not plan to get rid of it. Its done me good

This vehicle is the best one I have ever owned. Was going to trade it for a Lincoln Navigator until I drove it! Nothing in my opinion handles like my Tahoe, I have 109,000 miles on it and it rides just like the day I bought it. Just purchased a new warranty for 5 yr for it cause I plan on keeping it!

I purchased this 01 Tahoe used in 05 with about 50k on it. Everything has been great, added a dual exhuast along with a k&n filter for a 2-3 mpg increase. Other than that the truck is stock. Mechanically the truck is still in good shape,(engine and trans) but everything else in the car is LOOSE, LOOSE,LOOSE! Steering is awful, and the suspension has not been unfixable! The "autoride" feature has to be the worst automotive engineering mistake ever! Air compressors don't last and shocks are about $400 per unit. Granted the truck is 10 yrs old from build date, but you can't even cure suspension issues without spending thousands!

We absolutely love our Tahoe!! We bought it in November 2009 knowing it had a few problems from the previous owner's neglect. But after maintenance and repair, it runs fantastic!! I would definitely recommend this truck to anyone looking for a full sized SUV.

Purchased 01 Tahoe ls 4wd in may of 2009, had 110k mi on it then, has roughly 136k on it now (2/2010) have gotten 18.5 mpg w/out load going 65 mph during the summer on the highway with no stops. I love the truck. Love the tow haul, stopping w/out elec. Brakes is hard with a 3,000 lb boat/trailer behind you, wish Chevy would have put a little bigger rotors in. Mechanically since I have owned I have replaced washer fluid pump, and power steering pump went out (quite rare I hear). Wheels are corroding a little but hey its Minnesota they use salt. If someone asked my opinion about getting this vehicle, I would 100% without question tell them to go for it.
