This is the most amazing vehicle made.
I use this vehicle for work and tow heavy trailers almost every time it is used.
We have put 220,000 miles on it and it is running strong.
You cannot kill this vehicle if you tried.
This is one solid vehicle. I bought my z71 Tahoe in 2001. 134,000 later still drives like new. No major issues, just normal wear and tear items such as brakes, water pump, fuel pump and a couple oil seals. Luckily no transmission problems. Well worth the 40k I paid new. If you find a clean one jump on it!

bought it with 175.000 miles and sold it with 245.000 miles, NEVER DO ANYTHING TO THAT TRUCK! AMAZING, ACTUALLY I DROVE IT FROM FLORIDA TO PA A BUNCH OF TIMES WITHOUT NO PROBLEM! this truck are amazing! with 245.000 miles on it, i would push the gas and that truck would still pull you into the seat! amazing, best product from chery so far! gas mileage in higway is actually really decent!
The smaller 4.8L engine is a bit under
powered. I'm getting about 16 MPG on
average. Mixed city and highway
driving. Mileage could be better.
Breaking is weak. If you haul large
load, consider aftermarket breaks.
Goes great in the snow and off road.
Smooth when driving on the highway with
stock tires. Visors are a bit small
could be a bit longer to cover width of
the side windows. Interior is dated.
I have over 200k on mine and its 99 percent original.. I used the mobil 1 oils, and serviced everything like i should on time.. bought gas at newer gas stations in town. I use it to tow full size trucks and boats around with out a prob.. it could use a little more ummphh behind it.. but in respect most of what i tow equals over 10k lbs.
I sell parts and work on cars for a living.. and it seems I have found those that only change the oil in the engine.. and neglect everything else seem to be the ones have the issues with trans missions and alternators..
same with any car the better you maintain it, the longer it will last.. and for my tahoe i do not plan to get rid of it. Its done me good
