2002 Chevrolet Tahoe LS 4WD 4dr SUV (4.8L 8cyl 4A)
This is literally the first American-made car that I have ever owned to hit 100,000 miles without any transmission or engine failures. Previously, my Ford Deathstar's engine blew at 74,000 miles, and I became a Chevy fan. I feel confident in driving this car, confident in the quality and reliability.
It runs on E85, thank God! My Tahoe runs on less gasoline than a Toyota Prius or Honda Civic. Granted, it might be a "corn guzzler," but very little Middle East oil in this SUV. I love the space, the seats, the engine, etc.
Better gas mileage would be good. I'd be interested in the Tahoe hybrid, if it didn't cost $12,000 more than the regular Tahoe.
