2005 Chevrolet Tahoe LS Rwd 4dr SUV (4.8L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I purchased this item with 15,000 miles. At less that 50,000 the transmission went out. The starter has gone out and the lift hatches. Expensive repairs and too soon. I don't four wheel the car, I am a woman. I won't buy it again and they don't stand behind their product.


Best Features

fold flat seats for cargo


Worst Features

give the same warranty as they offer for the new ones.

2005 Chevrolet Tahoe LS 4WD 4dr SUV (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Biggest reliability issues have been with the Encoder Motor for the transmission. Net search shows these are problematic with all Tahoe 4 wheel drive vehicles They are expensive to replace and need replacing every 2-3 years.


Best Features

Large Front Seats with excellent lumbar support. Vehicle rides well for a truck. Good legroom front and back.


Worst Features

Blue tooth / slightly more headroom.

Review

This is my second Tahoe purchased new and it does exactly what I need it to do. I have had to use the stability control and it does work. LT w/ autoride is great. This SUV is now 5 years old and everything still works. It may not get 25+ mpg but look at the thing. Its a big SUV with a big engine. The transmission seems to know exactly when to shift and is holding up well with maintenance. I still love it.


Best Features

Leather seats if you maintain them,OnStar,XM Radio,Autoride option,Memory drivers seat & 2nd row captian seats,Great ride,Good breaks,Bose sound system,tire pressure sensor and Bridgestone tires.


Worst Features

Steering shaft clunking noise & feel,though not a steering problem.Cruse control has to hold the exact mph @ highway speed causing downshift to 2nd and snapping your head back.Bad for mpg.Liftgate handle tends to come unhinged due to rollpins backing out of place.DVD screen in bad place.

Review

i purchased my tahoe 4 years ago, so far i didn't face any kind of problem with the car. i live in the arabian gulf so hot during summer but the cooling system and A/C are very efficient.dealer service is excellent. until this day i'm still using the original brake pad after 65000 Km and the dealer said it is still 50%


Best Features

Power, looks, performance, mirrors, sound system and price


Worst Features

Colors variety. White color until this day looks like refrigerator paint so poor. Reverse sensor or camera is a must brake power. Rear seats very heavy.
