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


I've own my Tahoe for 5 1/2 years. Lowered it and put 20's on it, so the ride is excellent. Even with the 4.8 it tows my wakeboard boat fine. A couple of minor issues, but overall pretty reliable. Mileage is similar to others avg 16-17 with a max of 20. After 75000 still have original brakes with life to go...weird. Biggest disappointment is the engine has piston slap and GM said that was "normal" and wouldn't do anything. May not buy another GM because of that.

Best Features

Easily customizable. Lowered, SS bumper and grill, Denali rear bumper, and 20" Joe Gibbs racing wheels. Engine mods are also fairly easy to do. Front bench seat rides 6 people with no third row. Great for families with dogs. Love the auto 4WD.

Worst Features

New motors that do not have piston slap. Embarrassing that in 2004 they have a problem like this. Figure out a cheaper way to replace the fuel pump...too difficult and too expensive.
