2008 Chevrolet Tahoe LS 4dr SUV (4.8L 8cyl 4A)


Review

This is my second Tahoe. I have had it for 2 years. I am around 60,000 miles. I do a lot of joy riding plus work. The truck is reliable in the snow and rain. It is very roomy in the front and second row. The third row is in the way and should have been an option as opposed to a standard. My 10 year old is the only one that can fit back there. The only issues that I have is the automatic door locks do not work when using the key fob or the button on the door. I have to use the key to unlock the door and reach over to unlock the doors. Also, the defrost coil that connects to the rear window came off and needs to be soldered back on. Those seem like easy fixes. The gas mileage could be better.


Best Features

MP3, satellite radio, onstar, and spacious interior in front and second row.


Worst Features

Either make the third row an option or make it fold down flush with the floor to give the trunk space more room.

2008 Chevrolet Tahoe LT 4dr SUV 4WD (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Very good truck and first American full size SUV I've owned. I never bought before dude to styling of interior - the 2008 styling is really nice and ALMOST up to European standards but still a little ways to go. The towing capability with the air adjusted ride is amazing - the truck literally will adjust itself based on the amount of weight added. Gas mileage is "OK" but what I'd expect in a large V8. not sure the "switching to a V4" feature makes any difference. The review states it's a chore to take out the rear seats - I think anyone in general good health will not have issues removing the rear seats - I've never found it a bother. how often do you need to take them out, really?


Best Features

Interior design - NAV - stereo is great. Wood accent is good although I'm not sure it's really wood. 20 inch tires are great and really make for an amazingly smooth ride. My wife has a very nice luxury SUV and I would rather take my Tahoe on trips due to the ride and overall comfort it provides.


Worst Features

provide more options in terms of rim selection. Most luxury vehicles allow for 2-3 choices - if you want to get into that range then you need to allow for more choices. Make the wood trim look more real - if it isn't. it looks plastic.

2008 Chevrolet Tahoe LT 4dr SUV 4WD (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

This is my second Tahoe. The first was a LS. Very roomy easily seats 9 passengers and gives a smooth ride. I got this after trading in a new BMW X5 that rode horribly. I loved the Tahoe so much I upgraded to the Z71 4WD that converts to 2WD. It has all the amenities of a BMW but the ride is what sold me.The Z71 seats less but my kids are grown up now so I don't need as much room.


Best Features

I love how high it sits. Auto remote start. The Bose music system, the comfortable seats and needless to say ONSTAR


Worst Features

I love it any improvements would be a bonus to an already awesome truck.

2008 Chevrolet Tahoe LS 4dr SUV (4.8L 8cyl 4A)


Review

We recently purchase a 2008 Tahoe with 9000 mi and traded in a 2008 Toyota Sequoia. With the sudden acceleration concerns, I didn't feel comfortable with my family driving that vehicle. We had a 2003 Tahoe in the past and loved it. We should have just bought another Tahoe, it's now the only car we will own. We prefer the 4.8 L engine since gas mileage is reasonable considering the size of the SUV. We also prefer the LS since it doesn't have the cumbersome cup holders between the front and passenger seats - we prefer to have the area open. We also don't like the fake wood accents, the LS has chrome accents which we prefer. So far our car has been stellar. I would highly recommend it.


Worst Features

Stowable 3rd row. The seats are very bulky for my wife to remove and put back in for various configurations.

2008 Chevrolet Tahoe LT 4dr SUV 4WD (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

This 2008 LTZ is our second Tahoe. Our first was a great all around truck and this is even better. We need a versatile 4wd that can be used to haul our boat and take our kids sports teams all over Northern California. The ride is excellent, quiet, smooth and the transition to 4WD is seamless. We also own two Toyota SUVs (kids car's) and a Honda Accord. Over the years we've owned Porsche's, Volvos, Mazdas and Nissans, but the Tahoe is the best overall period. On our first Tahoe we had over 100K miles and the people that now own it have 126K on it. it still looks and drives like new. We've never had any maintenance issue's with either Tahoe. On a recent trip to Salt Lake we averaged 22 mpg.


Best Features

Looks, Comfort, Ride quality.


Worst Features

Fold flush rear seats.
