2008 Chevrolet Tahoe LT 4dr SUV (5.3L 8cyl 4A)
2008 Tahoe w/ 2LT. Compared to my 05 Yukon SLT, the new Tahoe is a huge improvement. Interior, specifically the dash, is now luxurious as opposed to looking like a cheap truck. Leather is much better quality. 3rd row seats still don't fold flat, have to manually remove. But now the 2nd row doesn't fold flat. They tumble forward to allow access to 3 row. Nice if you need it, but I'd rather have the 2nd row fold flat like the older version that made the cargo area cavernous. Yukon was loud, lots of wind noise. This Tahoe is quiet and has a very smooth ride. Expert reviews complain its too soft and unresponsive. I'll take soft any day. Not doing slaloms in a 5500 lb trk. avg 16 mpg
Great looking SUV. Much nicer interior. XM builtin. improved Leather. Rear parking sensor a plus. Smooth quiet ride. Actually like new front buckets without the armrests better. Flex fuel is useless. Fuel mgt seems to be a gimmick. same mpg as yukon. Doesn't stay in 4 cyl mode long enough.
Add blue tooth. Add flat folding seats. At least provide option to have 2nd row flat. Center console needs an organizer. It's like a woman's huge purse - you'll never find anything. At least give an ashtray or coinholder. Would like to have parking assist on front bumper for parking in garage.
