2005 Chevrolet Tahoe SUV LS Rwd 4dr SUV (4.8L 8cyl 4A)


Review

We bought our '05 Tahoe 2WD Z71 new. Went on many road trips pulling a 29 foot travel trailer. Rode and handled well every time - even with the heavy load, thanks to a weight distribution hitch. The only problem we have had since we bought it was the water pump developed a leak at 40K miles, which was 4K after the warranty expired. Since we had brought it in at 35K and mentioned that we occasionally smelled anti-freeze, and it was documented, the dealership replaced it under the factory warranty. The driver's seat also developed a tear along the outboard seam, and the dealership replaced it free of charge too. Since then, we have been more cognizant of how we exit the vehicle.


Best Features

Comfort on long drives.


Worst Features

Chevy has already done it: incorporate an electronic trailer brake into the vehicle's dashboard so you don't have to buy one and mount it under the dash.

2005 Chevrolet Tahoe SUV LS Rwd 4dr SUV (4.8L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I purchased this item with 15,000 miles. At less that 50,000 the transmission went out. The starter has gone out and the lift hatches. Expensive repairs and too soon. I don't four wheel the car, I am a woman. I won't buy it again and they don't stand behind their product.


Best Features

fold flat seats for cargo


Worst Features

give the same warranty as they offer for the new ones.

Review

This is my second Tahoe purchased new and it does exactly what I need it to do. I have had to use the stability control and it does work. LT w/ autoride is great. This SUV is now 5 years old and everything still works. It may not get 25+ mpg but look at the thing. Its a big SUV with a big engine. The transmission seems to know exactly when to shift and is holding up well with maintenance. I still love it.


Best Features

Leather seats if you maintain them,OnStar,XM Radio,Autoride option,Memory drivers seat & 2nd row captian seats,Great ride,Good breaks,Bose sound system,tire pressure sensor and Bridgestone tires.


Worst Features

Steering shaft clunking noise & feel,though not a steering problem.Cruse control has to hold the exact mph @ highway speed causing downshift to 2nd and snapping your head back.Bad for mpg.Liftgate handle tends to come unhinged due to rollpins backing out of place.DVD screen in bad place.

Review

I have enjoyed owning my Tahoe and never regretted buying it. The DVD player has been awesome with the grandchildren and also the 3rd seat. Only had a few minor problems, car seat adjust and speed odometer quit working, but that was at 72k miles and the dealer fixed the odometer free. Wasn't great on gas but I expected that when I bought it.


Best Features

Love the seats and just the overall view inside and out. Very comfortable on road trips.


Worst Features

3rd sit adjustment as far as removing, other than that nothing
