30K Miles & Little Glitches
By Norcal221 on
2008 Chevrolet Tahoe LT 4dr SUV 4WD (5.3L 8cyl 4A)
Had my Tahoe almost 2 years and the only problem is spontaneous oil leak that the dealer has not figured out yet. Interior cloth seats are beginning to shed as well as the carpet. The vinyl and plastic pieces grab and hold dirt, fingerprints and grime. Extremely hard to clean and gets dirty after only a few weeks. Cold mornings allow for the squeaky fan or alternator bearing but goes away after 10 minutes. 20" Goodyear tires need to be replaced . Other than that, the vehicle still looks beautiful and is still the King of the Haul. Yakima cross bars are highly recommended in lieu of factory rails; much more versatile.
20" 5 spoke rims, body design, new-gen wipers, superior 4WD system w/stabilatrak, power and torque.
Flex fuel is useless in CA - no local retailer for E85. Rear passenger windows need to be redesigned so that they can slide completely open. 3rd row seat removal and replacement very cumbersome. Windshield glass consistency needs improvement-some blurry spots. Make On-Star full time activated!
