Love it...but oh my!
By garihee on


1997 Chevrolet Tahoe LT 2dr SUV 4WD


Love this car for its great lines, 350, availability of aftermarket parts and its ability to move in the snow. Unfortunately, we're on our 4th transmission; this one a warranty replacement for the new one we put in when the second one went south.

The next time it eats a set of rotors I'm going to spend some real money and buy a pair that should last. There's also a sensor in the power steering that goes sour routinely and makes for some exciting wheel play on snow and ice and is in fact, a serious liability.

Anyway, glad to have mine and no intention of letting it go; it's one of tomorrow's classics!

Best Features

Clean lines and the 350.

Worst Features

GM should have stepped up to the transmission troubles. Shame on them for not accepting responsibility for a manufactered flaw.
