2004 Chevrolet Tahoe SUV LS Rwd 4dr SUV (4.8L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Bought this Tahoe new 4 1/2 years ago and it has been the best vehicle I have ever owned.


Best Features

Fold-flat back seats turns it into a panel van. 5.3l engine provides a little more power than standard motor.

Review

I bought this Tahoe a few years ago with around 40K miles on it. The speedometer broke at 60K, and shortly after GM recalled them, but by that time I was at 71K, so they would not refund me the $600. Overall it is comfortable, and fun to drive. Typical GM though, many interior lights are burned out, and everything is starting to rattle. Other than that, there have been no major problems.


Best Features

Love how you cant feel or hear the shift into/out of 4WD. Lots of power and great for towing my 30' boat. It feels very safe/secure to drive.


Worst Features

MPG is Terrible! Also, it would be nice if this $50k vehicle hadn't depreciated $45k in only 4 years. Do something about the dash, buttons lights burning out so quickly, or at least make them easier/cheaper to replace.

Review

Purchased used with 50K miles. Typical 15 to 18 on the highway. 12 mpg with 16 ft boat. We installed a Hypertech Econ programmer. Boat went to 15 mpg, highway steady 19 to 20 between 60 and 65 mph. Installed a Flexalite electric fan. In my son's words "the fan is sick!" 23 mpg on the highway! Have not towed the boat. Only vehicle in the family that can carry all of us any distance (all over 6'). Power increase is noticeable! This thing is within 1 mpg of our Toyota Camry! Why didn't GM build it this way?


Best Features

Gas mileage!


Worst Features

Leather is wearing poorly. One of the gauges has died.

Review

This is my first Chevy vehicle ever! The previous owners bought it new and had all the service records for it.The truck had 52K miles when I purchased it and has 59K now. No major problems yet, my local chevy dealer said though I needed a new a/c belt, and something in my steering column needed to be replaced, cost was about $250 with labor to repair both. My rear brake light went out, now that was expensive... the part itself was $250, and you can't buy it at any part store cause its a LED light. Great smooth ride and great pick-up. Love the space. The truck is not to big nor to small for a single guy with no kids


Best Features

Auto climate, heated & memory seats, 10 way power seats, driver information center, Onstar, XM, & 6disc. Sunroof and dvd player, stabil trac system, 17 inch alloys also, like the look better over the 16 inch alloys. Love the dark blue exterior. This one has tan in it, think I will get grey next time.


Worst Features

Better fuel economy in the city, hwy is great though. Better leather, cooled seats, gets pretty hot in the south. Although I noticed for 09 cooled seats are available on the LTZ model. Oh and second row buckets being able to lay back farther for napping.

Review

Love this truck, very reliable, only had 2 warranty issues and I have 96k miles on it. Need to stay away from Delco batteries, had to finally get an interstate as Delco kept dying in less than a year. Now teaching daughter to drive it. She loves it also. Still drives like new, even with high miles. Good seating, kids like DVD player, great AC, really keeps inside cool on over 100 degree days.


Best Features

AC Cools great, drives smooth, easy to get in/out. Good radio sound, easy to put back seats down.


Worst Features

None really. You don't buy a SUV for gas mileage, although on trips I have gotten 20 MPG with the 5.3
