2003 Chevrolet Tahoe LS Rwd 4dr SUV (4.8L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I use the Tahoe mainly for towing a trailer so I don't put a lot of miles on it annually. I love each and every time I climb into the truck. It is so comfortable and a joy to drive.


Best Features

My favorite would have to be fuel mileage, especially for such a big truck. I average 15.5 MPG wile towing and 17 when not.


Worst Features

A little better design for the intermediate link would be great. Mine like so many others suffered from the steering clunk that became universally associated with the Tahoe.

2003 Chevrolet Tahoe LS Rwd 4dr SUV (4.8L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Drove a '93 Suburban for 7 years and loved it! The Tahoe is the worst vehicle I have ever owned. I believe the reviews depend on what the person drove before owning the '03 Tahoe. I only drive 20 mile to work and hate the drive everyday. It handles so squirrelly I have trouble keping it between the lines, like following a semi too close. Tires replace with Michelins trying to control this vehicle. The Michelins improved handling on rual roads but did not on the interstate. Intermediate shaft replaced at 16748 miles, crossmember replace at 35558 miles. Vibration at takeoff. Transmission slips. No ashtray in back. Can't get rid of it because its valued less than the payoff.


Best Features

It looks good, thats all!


Worst Features

Possible solutions to handling: lower vehicle height, modify frontend mechanics.

2003 Chevrolet Tahoe LS 4WD 4dr SUV (4.8L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Best vehicle I have ever owned. It is equally fitting for driving around town in Denver or taking the toughest incline in the Rockies. I love the power; my wife loves the comfort. We recently drove from Denver to Houston and it was the most comfortable long trip I have ever taken in a vehicle. The only complaint is slightly squeaky brakes.


Best Features

Power; comfort; style.


Worst Features

Fix the squeaky brakes.

2003 Chevrolet Tahoe LS 4WD 4dr SUV (4.8L 8cyl 4A)


Review

After 46,000 miles I still love this car. As comfy as a luxury car with more bells and whistles than most. Towing my boat I sometimes forget it's even back there! If you need space for kids, dogs, or just stuff this is the truck 4 you. Not to mention the saftey of having your family in a veritable tank. We will always buy Chevy from now on.


Best Features

Amazing ride, Strong but quiet engine, gorgeous body, tons of room, superlative sound system


Worst Features

Make the third row seats lighter and easier to get in and out (fairly heavy).

Review

We were surprised how nice this machine really is. It is easy to park and roomy enough for the whole family in comfort. A pleasure to drive, it wants to continue in a straight line and pulls a trailer with ease. Don't expect sports car thrills, but do expect predictable relaxed comfort and surprising maneuverability.


Best Features

Wide interior, dual climate controls, comfortable ride characteristics


Worst Features

More dc outlets
