2005 Chevrolet Tahoe LS 4WD 4dr SUV (5.3L 8cyl 4A)
This is my third and most refined Tahoe. Expect about 13-14 in the city and up to 19-20 MPG at 70 MPH or below. After 70 MPH it goes down. It is well appointed and very comfortable. The rear captain's chairs are nice but you lose 1 seat which seems we always need with the kids and friends. I've had no issues with the vehicle except at 24 miles per hour when the transmission shifts it clunks half the time. This is a known complaint which is to specifications I was told. The third row seating is nice but behind it there is limited if no room. We carry a car carrier for trips to take the luggage. It is very smooth and relatively quiet. It appears safe as seats are higher in a wreck.
Highway MPG if kept at 70 or below. DVD system though a small screen. Navigation. Very reliable. Autoride suspension feature. All my Tahoe's brakes lasted long
Rear end clunking when tranny shifts. Bigger DVD screen. Larger rims. More competive pricing for 09 models. Weather band channel on radio. Factory mud flaps like Toyota that fit. Rear wing mount over back window. Like All wheel drive feature that is not noisy and rough
