2009 Chevrolet Tahoe LTZ 4dr SUV 4WD (5.3L 8cyl 6A)


Review

This is my first true SUV and so far it's exceeded my expectations. I can honestly say after 20K miles of in town and highway driving, I would buy another Tahoe. Excellent driving experience and the gas mileage has been about as expected, actually slightly better. But I have to say I'm not a heavy on the gas either.


Favorite Features

Comfort and highway driving absolutely great. I love it.


Suggested Improvements

I'm a little on the tall side and front seats could be settled slightly lower but no problems.

2009 Chevrolet Tahoe LS 4dr SUV 4WD (5.3L 8cyl 6A)


Review

This is my 2nd Tahoe. The 2009 has been taken back to the dealership 4 times in one year. 4 wheel drive failed 3 times and airbag system needed to be fixed. Cheaper materials than older models.


Favorite Features

Still fun to drive.


Suggested Improvements

Better quality interior and controls. Poor lumbar support.

2009 Chevrolet Tahoe LTZ 4dr SUV 4WD (5.3L 8cyl 6A)


Review

Overall a wonderful full size SUV that rides well, fits everything, and looks great. Don't gripe about the mpg - it's what you expect with a 6,000 lb vehicle. I take it on trips more often than my 7 series BMW since it's a great vehicle for travel. Only problems during past 12 months have been with driver's door squeak (still unresolved) and the battery or alternator whereby the vehicle is dead after 2-3 days of non-use. Apparently this problem is known to GM. Tomorrow is 2nd trip to dealer for this problem. Assuming problem is resolved, I highly recommend this SUV.


Favorite Features

Seats, nav, dash layout, ride, overall comfort.


Suggested Improvements

Fold-flat 3rd row seats; GM fix for dead battery.

2009 Chevrolet Tahoe LT2 4dr SUV (5.3L 8cyl 6A)


Review

Previous owner of a Toyota and BMW.. I am glad to back in an American vehicle..boy they have improved. The Tahoe, excellent Grand SUV, from inside to outside, I appreciate the quality and workmanship. Great electronics to keep you updated on the vehicle performance. The only ding..the MPG..14- 17..but using regular fuel is helpful in that respect.


Favorite Features

Inside Electronics...


Suggested Improvements

MPG, 3rd row seating..
