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


Review

I've owned my '05 Tahoe since July of this year and love it! Before this I owned a '98 Jeep Cherokee XJ and the Tahoe's ride is luxury compared to the Cherokee. It handles very well considering it's size and very easy to drive. Bumps in the road are barely felt. It has a nice 'cushy' feeling when it goes over bumps and dips. Not harsh at all. I've taken it off road once (very mild) and it handled itself very well. I know the Jeep brand has its heritage in off-roading but the Tahoe did just fine in minor situations. I feel confident driving in the rain too. I've gone through puddles on the freeway with the Jeep and felt a little hydroplaning but the Tahoe just drove through them.


Best Features

I love that the Z71 model is a complete package. I also love the rear flip up glass to access the rear cargo vs. having to open the entire cargo hatch. The leather seating is very comfortable and the heated seats are great for those cold mornings.


Worst Features

I would say better fuel economy but it looks like they've taken care of that for the new '07 models. Standard side curtain air bags would be nice.

Review

Pretty much an optimized SUV.There is a reason why so many people buy these trucks ! My family and I are enjoying the heck out of it ! The only issue I have is with the gearing, GM went with the 3.42 rear gear instead of the 3.73 ( which the 2004 and older units had ) I the intrest of fuel economy. Drivability however has been sacrificed at certain cruising speeds.The truck is not turning enough RPM's in top gear, and provides a sluggish feel below 75 MPH. Which is problem considering there are not to many places that allow you to drive that fast ! However, @ 85 MPH I think I'm only turning 2200 RPM's, talk about a highway cruiser !!!


Best Features

Bose stereo with XM !


Worst Features

5- speed transmission

Review

This is the 2nd Tahoe within 2 years. I purchased it new and loaded and I absolutely love it. My gas mileage is good and I'll purchase another Tahoe most probably in 2007. Love this SUV!


Best Features

Heated seats, DVD, 6 CD player, all extras and the comfort of the drive!


Worst Features

Put DVD's in the head rests instead of in the ceiling. With two grandchildren this would be absolutely great. Also, have heated seats in the 2nd row.

Review

I love how comfortable it rides. It looks good and has a lot of room inside to haul things. You can make a lot of adjustments to have the Tahoe fit your needs.


Best Features

Heated seats, dvd player, XM, OnStar, room


Worst Features

A little bigger running board to help you get in. Make sure you have enough air in your tires otherwise when it gets cold a warning light will come on.
