Really? It needs a new engine at 80K?
By kumanos on


2007 Chevrolet Tahoe LT 4dr SUV (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Thought I was getting a great deal to purchase an 07 Tahoe with 58K, but at 80K, it left me high and dry at the side of the road.
The valve spring broke, dropping the valve and ruining the piston.
Just past the 5 year/1000 Warranty.
After it was all said and done, I paid an engine rebuilding place to fix my existing motor (thank God the block was not damaged) $3600 to rebuild my motor.
Wish rear seats laid flat for more interior cargo space. Chevy dealership only wanted to sell me a new GM motor for $7,000.
Will never go to the dealership, they do nothing but gouge.
Young Chevrolet, East Dallas... buyer beware.

Best Features

I love the captains chairs and they are very comfortable for long trips. DVD entertainment and Bose stereo system are fantastic for the kiddoes. Love the remote start on cold mornings to warm the car in advance.

Worst Features

Stop cutting corners with cheap engine parts. Why would a spring fail?
