2005 Chevrolet Tahoe LS 4WD 4dr SUV (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I have owned several cars/SUV's in the past. I replaced a BMW 325xi with my Z71. I bought the Tahoe for 31k with 12K miles. Previous owner put 20" rims, dual side exhaust, all window tinted, nav, 6 disc, remote start, xeon lights and high flow air. Stands Out. I tow a 27' powerboat with the truck. Can't even tell it is being pulled. Ride great, handles better than expected. 13.2 mpg average. Driven as primary car in sales job, I use the nav system everyday. Powerseats and adjustments a must! XM radio great for N. MN and NW WI. Have owned 2 Honda Passports, Jeep Wrangler, Pontiac Bonneville, Dodge Durengo, BMW 325 xi, BMW i. Must say the Tahoe is the overall the most fun to drive.


Best Features

Nav system, xeon lights, high visability, power folding mirrors (car wash and ramps) 3rd row seats and captians chairs. Road trip with playstation on the DVD player makes time fly. Rips through the snow, turn radius better than expected


Worst Features

If it has rained and you open the window you will get wet (water runs off roof and flows onto arm). Need to add window covers to keep rain out. Large gaps between body panels (compaired to bmw's) No option for rear camera on 05's...avalible on 06's. Wished it had overdrive for highway travel.

2005 Chevrolet Tahoe LS 4WD 4dr SUV (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Hands down currently the best overall Full Size SUV on the market today. If you haven't had a test drive yet, get out there. One Warning, if you drive it, you will be sold. GM has stepped it up, Gen 3 is the real deal.


Best Features

Power, Interior, Look, Feel, Drivablity.


Worst Features

Fold flat 3rd row seating, please!

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


Review

I have never owned a vehicle this large before, but it doesn't drive like a big truck. I find myself actually enjoying road trips with my family of 7.


Best Features

Unlike most SUV's, you can actually fit people in the 3-rd row.

Review

The Tahoe is reliable, confortable, and I do enjoy driving and riding in it. The mileage is getting better as time goes on and is about 2 mpg better than my 2003 model. It is very roomy and has more space than the Ford SUV's. Thanks Chevy

Review

This Tahoe is fun to drive. It is sporty with lots of pick up and go yet it still hauls loads well. The interior is extremely comfortable. GM improved the design from the former 1999 Tahoe I had in the past. They put more consideration in for the passengers comfort as well as the driver. It handles very well with extremely good handling on corners and through snow and slushy conditions. Although the gas mileage isn't the greatest (15.9 in the city and 20+ highway)I highly recommend this vehicle.
