2004 Chevrolet Tahoe LS 4WD 4dr SUV (4.8L 8cyl 4A)
Bought the truck new in 04 and now it has 136,000+ miles but the first 30,000 weren't trouble free. In the first 30,000 half the engine had to be rebuilt, it overheater numerous times, and some electrical components shorted- out. Also the 4wd gave out right after the warranty ended, and also the water pump had to be replaced at 100k and the windshield wiper fuild motors. Also the Speedometer doesn't work anymore and it is a recall that the dealers won't honor. Although after the 30k make the truck has held up well mechanically. The exterior has held up great and the interior as well with the exception of the paint coming of the radio dials. Normal leather seat wear. Next car will be a ford.
bose stero system, leather has held up quite well for the amount of miles, plenty of power, and Onstar. Good truck once it was finally fixed properly.
needs much better reliability, needs independent rear suspension, needs fords usable and power third row fold flat seats, GM needs to step up their quality if they want to survive in this tough car industry
