All Good Except Suspension!!
By damagg13 on


2001 Chevrolet Tahoe 4WD 4dr SUV (4.8L 8cyl 4A)


I purchased this 01 Tahoe used in 05 with about 50k on it. Everything has been great, added a dual exhuast along with a k&n filter for a 2-3 mpg increase. Other than that the truck is stock. Mechanically the truck is still in good shape,(engine and trans) but everything else in the car is LOOSE, LOOSE,LOOSE! Steering is awful, and the suspension has not been unfixable! The "autoride" feature has to be the worst automotive engineering mistake ever! Air compressors don't last and shocks are about $400 per unit. Granted the truck is 10 yrs old from build date, but you can't even cure suspension issues without spending thousands!

Best Features

Size of vehicle, practicality, mpg is very good for a large truck avg 16 city 21 hwy. perfect size for any task at hand without needing a commercial plate.

Worst Features

Build quality is awful. Ever piece of plastic makes noise during city driving. Banish the "air ride" If I want to feel like I am on air I'll get in a plane!! More towing Power
