1996 Chevrolet Tahoe LT 4dr SUV 4WD


I love my Tahoe. I love it so much
that I keep putting transmissions in it
instead of getting rid of it. Just two
days ago it ate its fourth
transmission. Apparently there is a
defect (complete with s TSB to fix it)
that makes these trucks eat
transmissions. Unfortunately, GM
doesn't feel they owe the owners for
the transmissions or the fix. Other
than that, the truck is awesome. It
will tow a boat, trailer, or car. It
will haul your family and all their
luggage. While driving, you feel
totally safe. My gas mileage averages
about 17 mpg and the ride is smooth.

Best Features

Size, capacity, and capabilities.

Worst Features

Transmissions that last longer than 16,000 miles. A corporation that takes responsibility for its manufacturing flaws.
