1997 Chevrolet Tahoe LT 4dr SUV 4WD


Bought used with 51K on her. Ran great
up to 80K. Timing chain broke, dinged
the valves and $4,000 later had it back
for a week before the timing chain
broke again (dealer installed
incorrectly) Now at 120,000 mile have
had to replaced brakes and rotors three
times, replaced alternator twice,
transmission is going and the fuel
regulator is about to go as well.
replaced wiper motor as well.
Comfortable/powerful ride, but will
cost ~$10K to get another 100,000 miles
out of it. Ready to move on to
something else.

Best Features

Loved this SUV until the repairman had to be part of the equation. Comfortable and Powerful ride. Turning radius is great for such a large vehicle. Can carry anything you want to. Great in the snow.

Worst Features

Interior plastics are cheesy. Drive train, engine and brake reliability are substandard. Rear windsheild wiper would be extremely handy
