Some cheap parts but has the reliable drivetrain expected with Chevrolet
By leland5 on
2007 Chevrolet Tahoe LT 4dr SUV 4WD (5.3L 8cyl 4A)
I originally bought my tahoe used and noticed a few quality problems. The interior is mostly cheap plastic that often cracks, peels, and does not last for more than four years. This is surprising due to the high price for this vehicle. The bumpers are not metal and provide no protection for this vehicle. Nevertheless, the drivetrain and 4X4 system is nothing short of what is expected from a Chevrolet. I have had no problems with the engine transmission, transfer cases or any major electrical problems. This car is fun to drive, handles better than any other SUV on the market, can handle any terrain and has a huge interior.
4X4 system and drivetrain, handling, turn radius, size, better fuel efficiency, aggressive look, engine power, large engine compartment for upgrades, potential for a vast amount of aftermarket products, and its off road and towing capabilities.
The interior is cheaply made and requires constant maintenance to keep it looking new. Also, as with most new cars, too much of the body utilizes cheap plastics in place of metals such as the bumpers, fenders, wheel hulls, interior trim pieces, and major screw points under the hood that are held together with plastic pieces. A few small electrical problems with the rear climate control and rear windows. Major blindspot when driving this SUV and everything but the drivetrain does not survive abuse from high passenger traffic, weather, and general wear and tear.
