1997 Chevrolet Tahoe LT 4dr SUV 4WD


Reliability has been low in history of this vehicle. Fuel pump at 33K, water hose quick connect corroded and broken at 40K, tranny died at 55K, Driver door handle breaking at 60K, Alternator @65K, windshield wiper circuit board @70K. Had Delco battery leak acid that destroyed battery cables. Parts counter at Chevy dealer recommended I get another brand because he had a room full of leaking batteries and Delco did nothing to redesign to prevent problem. With all this no wonder the term of endearment for this vehicle starts with "piece of". Now that everything has been replaced it runs great and I intend to keep for some time as tow vehicle for boat.

Best Features

Love the clean body style and roomy interior with well laid out instrument cluster.

Worst Features

Standard headlights are not bright enough and low beams should stay on when high beams are on, not an either or proposition.
