2002 Chevrolet Tahoe LS 2WD 4dr SUV (4.8L 8cyl 4A)


Review

My Tahoe has been great, I love the size, but I have a few suggestions. It's been a great, reliable car. But I will not get another until they fix these things. I am looking at an Infinity QX56.


Best Features

Mechanically, I've never done a thing but change the oil!


Worst Features

3rd row to fold flat, 2nd row seats recline, armrests in the way of seatbelts in front, armrests too close together, middle seats need shoulder seatbelts, need 40/20/40 split in middle row, stability control

2002 Chevrolet Tahoe LS 2WD 4dr SUV (4.8L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Worst vehicle I ever owned. Steering intermediate shaft needs lubed every 3000 miles. Engine knocks when first started. I get maybe,12 MPG. Seats are the worst I ever had the misfortune to sit in. If ninety % use their vehicle for transport of the driver only, why don't these idiot engineers design a vehicle that a person over 5'2" can get comfortable in. I mean does it make sense to cram a person in a cocoon shaped drivers compartment with their feet stuck in one position, the floor curved, so their feet are never on a flat surface, a steering wheel that will not adjust fwd and aft, seats that only adjust the bottom half, arm rest that stick in the air when top half is reclined.


Best Features

None


Worst Features

Engineers: Use your heads. Most people drive by themselves. Why can't you design the drivers compartment controls to be the most adjustable. ie seats, wheels, pedals. Think about where people rest their knees and legs. Why is there always a sharp corner where I want to rest my leg?

Have had a great overall experience with this Tahoe. Standard Maintenance is all that has been required. Just replaced the factory tires @ 71,000 miles.


Worst Features

Air cooled front seats.

Review

This 2002 Chevrolet Tahoe is the third Tahoe I have owned and the sixth SUV I have owned. Prior to purchasing my first SUV which was a Chevy two door Blazer I drove sports cars. I will never own another car, the Tahoe is the best, most reliable vehicle I have ever owned and I have owned a total of sixteen cars in my life.


Best Features

It sits up higher than a car so you can see what is going on in front of you. You simply feel safer in a Tahoe, the size and reliablity can not be beat.


Worst Features

The only thing I could think of suggesting to improve the Tahoe is to make it more fuel efficient. Other than that there is nothing else to improve on it looks better, rides better and is more dependable than any other vehicle on the road today.

Review

Even though I don't have anything or anyone to haul around, I love having the room if I need it. Actually, I did once deliver a new stove and it fit in the back with the seat folded down. Not great gas mileage - but I'm glad I have the power to get on the highway with no problems.


Best Features

I love the stereo and all the extra lighting and hidy-holes in the interior.


Worst Features

As getting in and out seems to be wearing the edges of the front seats, a heavy duty panel on that area of the seats would help. Of course, if there were a way to get better gas mileage, say 20 mpg on the highway, that would be great.
