1997 Chevrolet Tahoe LS 4dr SUV 4WD


This truck has reliability problems of
certain components. Steering sensors
have failed twice, fuel pump once $900,
transmission $3500. This truck has 75000
miles on it and never pulled a trailer,
nor been used off road. Fuel pump and
transmission will fail without warning
and leave you on the side of the road.
Steering sensors cause the truck to turn
off the road or into the oncoming lane,
but atleast you can get back to town to
the shop.

I paid 1997 prices and received 1977

If buying one be sure to get an extended
warranty and a cell phone to call tow
truck when it breaks down on the road.

Best Features

Power Size Plushness

Worst Features

Transmission and fuel pump should be made to last longer or have some kind of warning to indicate they are failing. Suspension should be a bit stiffer, rolls too much when cornering.
