08 Tahoe purchase
By D S W on
2008 Chevrolet Tahoe LT 4dr SUV 4WD (5.3L 8cyl 4A)
Compaired Tahoe and Toyota Sequoia, bought the Tahoe. A lot more equiptment for the money, nicer interior and better gas mileage. New 100K/5yr warranty also helped with decission. I have the LTZ with all the toys and they all work as advertised. Ride is very smooth,the V8 to V4 modes are seamless. Biggest negative is rear seating, especially the 3rd row and the lack of independant rear suspension. The Toyota is the winner in these areas. The 08 Tahoe appears larger than my 03 Tahoe Z71 , but it has the same dimentions. The 08 is less truck like than the 03 with a lower dash. The 03 did have more storage areas than the 08.
OnStar system, nav system, rear backup sensors and camera, side airbags for all passenger areas.
Better 3rd row seating, also should have independent rear suspension. More storage areas would be welcome. Needs a 5 or 6 speed auto transmission like many of the other makes.
