2006 Chevrolet Tahoe LS 4dr SUV 4WD w/1WT (5.3L 8cyl 4A)
Thus far it has been a great ride. Overall perforamnce and reliability has been excellent. I have not had to take it in for any issues since I purchased it in Feb. 2006. I am extremely pleased with it.
Leather seats (heated) are a nice plus as are the folding mirrors.
The only suggested inprovement would be to add a few more inches for rear storage. Not looking for a Suburban type vehicle though.
If you absolutely gotta have the room an SUV provides (my job requires it), nothing comes close to Tahoe's bang-for- the-buck. After I negotiated, added the rebate + my 3k in GM Card money, and GM kicked in a $500 gas card, I didn't pay much more than a loaded-up Camry. My Z71 (2wd and yes they started offering 2wd in '06) had one add to the base sticker, XM. The Z71 is basically an LT without the 3rd seat + a few incidentals. I drive it conservatively and get 15+mpg mostly city driving. It does everything about as well as anyone could expect from a tall, 2 ton SUV. So far, it's been as trouble-free as my last 2 Tahoes were.
XM. Mileage (compared to my old Expediton it's an econo-car) Nice ride. Rattle-free interior. Electric folding outside mirrors. Aggressive stance, and relatively small size compared to other SUV's. Value (these trucks come pretty much loaded)
Make it corner like a sports car. Gotta say it will run like crazy in a straight line, but it is not tempting to weave it through traffic

We bought the Tahoe to replace the mini- van that finally broke beyond repair. We are a family of 7 and everyone loves the room, ride, and comfort of the Tahoe. I'm getting better gas mileage than anybody I talk to with an equivalent type vehicle.
Ride, power, and comfort...
Interior/exterior styling getting dated, looks like that is addressed with the '07 model.
