I am extremely happy with my 2000 Tahoe. "Knock on Wood" I haven't had any problems with mine. Prior to owning a Chevy I drove Ford Explorers and there is no comparism. I had my share of lemons with Ford. My Tahoe currently has 88,000 miles and still drives like it did when it had 40,000. I would buy another Tahoe.
Purchased a 2000 Tahoe new, was going to try and keep for 10 years. It has been using a quart of oil every oil change, and now up to about a quart every couple months; poor GM, I guess they desire for the others guys to un-plug the life support.
Make an SUV that at least have dependable motors and trans; will run over 100k without going out, slipping or burning fluids.
This has been a great family vehicle. We love it. We use it to travel the east coast for vacations, fishing, hunting, sports, etc. It is great in all road conditions. On the beach (sand of N.C. OBX) or in the snow of VA it goes. Tow a trailer for working in the yard. It pulls it smothly. Would by another in a minute.
Size inside is great for four. We regularly cary two families (that's eight)(3 of which are twins). It's a tight fit but very do-able.
Windsheild wiper on back window is the weakest aspect of the truck.
I love driving this horse. it is a cofortable cruising truck as well as a get up and go truck. The V8 kicks in smooth and the fuel mileage is not bad. We have added a few features along with the VCR. All the omforts of home with the exception of a bathroom. Chevy builds them tough, however they also realize that women prefer the comfort factors offered in the Tahoe.
I love the OnStar, the sound system, and the smooth ride. My husband likes the size and power.
