My 2005 Z71
By dammitjim1 on
2005 Chevrolet Tahoe LS 4WD 4dr SUV (5.3L 8cyl 4A)
I have always admired the look of the
Z71 Tahoe, particularly in black. So
when GM offered me the Pull Ahead option
on my '02 Trailblazer LTZ lease, along
with some other financial incentives, I
jumped at the chance to acquire the Tahoe.
After a test drive and a bit of
negotiation, I drove my new Z71 home.
The ride, comfort and handling are
outstanding - equal to or better than
any car I've ever driven. Very
surprising for such a large vehicle.
The sound of XM radio coming through the
Bose speakers is awesome, and the kids
love the DVD.
This is still the "honeymoon" phase. If
the reliability holds up over the 48
SmartBuy period, I'll probably be
driving a Tahoe in 2008.
Ride, comfort and handling are top
notch, and the Z71 is beautiful in
black. The XM radio will make you want
to drive when you don't need to! The DVD
keeps the back seat quiet. The
additional space offered by the 2nd row
buckets lets our Chocolate Lab, Otis
ride with us instead of the cargo area.
Some features found on less expensive
Chevy trucks surprisingly left out -
like rainsense wipers. This was a great
thing on the Trailblazer - why leave
them off the Tahoe? For 2005, the key
fob can no longer activate the seat
recall position like in prior years.
DUMB, GM, DUMB!!! Why leave this out?
