2003 Chevrolet Tahoe LS 4WD 4dr SUV (4.8L 8cyl 4A)
The 2003 Chevy Tahoe z71 is one of four gm suvs I have owned. The 1996 suburban was excellent but a bit big for me. My 1999 Yukon was awesome, averaged 20 mpg, and sold the day I put a for sale sign on it 6 years and 156k miles later. The 2003 z71 is the best design, averages 21 mpg, has the most creature comforts, us the best off road vehicle and at 126k is still in excellent condition. I just purchased a new 2009 Yukon hybrid which is loaded, has an awesome zippy engine, overwhelming new technologies that I may some day learn to use, and is stylish by today's standards. Off road use is iffy because of the new front bumper being too low to the ground, but it is also get 21 mpg. I am a fan.
Size, safety, comfort, multiple uses, style and power.
My 2003 Z71 is my idea of the perfect vehicle. I actually prefer it over my brand new 2009 Yukon Hybrid.
