2002 Chevrolet Tahoe LS 2WD 4dr SUV (4.8L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Purchased this 2002 LS (with most of the LT features) in April 2015 with 104K on the clock. It's now December 2015 and we are approaching 123K. We have driven it on at least a half dozen trips between Dallas and Chicago, Asheville-NC and Colorado Springs. With the exception of having to replace the flex fuel module, the truck has been amazing. Extremely comfortable, and with handling reflexes that would otherwise be expected of a much smaller SUV. Absolutely love the 325 CID V8 - smooth and pulls strong all the way to 6000 rpm. It uses a quart of oil about every 6,000 miles - amazing. It has hauled anything we have had to stuff into it.

2002 Chevrolet Tahoe LS 2WD 4dr SUV (4.8L 8cyl 4A)


Review

We bought our 2002 Tahoe with 99K on it.
It was super clean.
Within the first 3 months we replaced the rack and pinon steering, and the front A/C condensor.
One year later we replaced the back A/C condensor.
Then it began to die while driving, let it cool off and it would do it again, all b4 125K.
I think I got a lemon because everybody else gets 200K from them.
I loved our Tahoe and I am going to buy another one, if I get burned again it will be the last one I buy, but I really dont expect that to happen.

Review

240,000 mi and counting no problems mechanically, or electronically. However, GM discontinued analog Onstar in 2004, which stinks!! but other than that this vehicle masters in reliability. Zero problems, and no stranded or unsatisfied drivers. My Tahoe proves that GM can meet if not beat foreign automakers in reliability, and i hope it's seen more, and more people will buy GM, and mot Foreign. Despite SUV still looks, drives, and rides great. I have 1000% confidence that this Tahoe will no problem rolling over to 3 if not 500,000 miles. Domestics are as reliable as the Foreign automakers advertise, only I've got the physical evidence to prove the above statement. I love this tahoe!!


Best Features

Reliability, Quality you can see and feel after 8 years and 240,000 miles. the engine that's still burns rubber, and still leaves marks. Love the 5.3 Vortec engine, out paces most souped-up cars today! Awesome vehicle and plan to keep until body rust through or 1,000,000 mi, which ever occurs first


Worst Features

Would have like GM to switch the analog Onstar to Digital to keep it working, and an option for fold-flat third row seats.

Review

This I think is more reliable than any car i have had or driven. People think the Japanese make the most reliable cars but they don't. This truck has never let me or my family down rain or shine.


Best Features

Not having to slow down for pot holes or dips is a great way to conserve gas in this truck. versatility, this thing can do anything no questions asked


Worst Features

A flashy dashboard would be nice. Steering column feels too cheap. Automatic lift gate would be cool.
