Hate to get rid of the Astro
By hauler on
2009 Chevrolet Tahoe LT2 4dr SUV 4WD (5.3L 8cyl 6A)
Time to get a new vehicle for towing. After looking for a long time GM Tahoe/Yukon was only vehicle that could satisfy my fully loaded Astro replacement. PIck Tahoe for better looks. Nice smooth ride, but feel the jolts over potholes. Maybe because of 20inch wheels. Avg 20 mpg from NY to Va. Tranny and rear end was thumping when starting to descend on downhill and letting go of gas. Dealer reprogram tranny module. Seems to fix problem. Door molding began slight peeling. Dealer replace - like new. Otherwise really enjoy ride. I like my Garmin GPS better than GM GPS. Will use to tow boat on regular basis from NY to FL. Overall, good SUV for people who need towing. Gets same mpg as my Astro.
Looks,fit and finish,quiet ride,tow capacity, front seat comfort, interior design and quality, due to current GM crisis dealer took 11k of sticker- couldn't walk away.
3rd row seat is not suited for adults; 2nd row seat should be able to recline for greater rear seat comfort on long distance;gps has limited features when driving but should have full feature if a front passenger is available; HD tow package should be standard
