2009 Chevrolet Tahoe SUV LTZ 4dr SUV 4WD (5.3L 8cyl 6A)


Review

It drives me nuts to see you guys messing with the ratings on a good SUV because of something like fuel economy. You don't like getting 15 MPG,THEN DRIVE A CIVIC!!! It does everything a big SUV is made to do. Great in the winter and rain, tows anything and its got great cargo room. Totally satisfied!


Best Features

Everything!

Review

The 6.2 is so rare it wasn't even a selection in the drop down menu! This is actually my second LTZ, the first being a 2007 2WD with the 5.3. The 6.2 4X4 has loads of power but unfortunately is averaging just 13.8 MPG to the 16 MPG of the 2WD 5.3 with only a 4 speed trans (No 8/4 mode on the 6.2). By far, the best truck GM has ever produced. Not quite the ride of the Escalade (no magnetic ride control in the Tahoe), but the Caddy didn't have low range (AWD only), and really, 12K more for a slightly bigger nav screen and 6 disc changer VS single disc? A no brainer. Build quality is very good, at least equal to Ford or Chrysler.


Best Features

Heated and cooled seats, bluetooth, XM Nav-Traffic,


Worst Features

Hid's should be an option on these. Could use a little more brakes, the '07 is due for pads/rotors at 40k. Unlock the nav system so your passengers can input destinations while you're driving or see the movie playing!Hid's should be an option on these.

2009 Chevrolet Tahoe SUV LT1 4dr SUV (5.3L 8cyl 6A)


Review

Our purchase of a new Chevy Yukon has been a major disappointment to me. My wife enjoys the size and ride but we have owned Suburbans for the past 20 years. The fuel mileage has been the biggest disappointment with mileage no better than 14mpg whether highway or in town. Our old Suburban got 17 - 18 on the road. Performance is also not what was expected. The engine has died in the middle of a turn and there seems to be a small miss when slowing for a turn and then accelerating. Unexpectedly thee is NO storage under the seats or anywhere. All in all, for the money, I think a Lexus, BMW, or MB may have been a better idea.


Worst Features

Get rid of the 8-4 engine.

Review

Traded in a 2005 Suburban 3/4 ton 6.0L 4WD for a 2009 Tahoe LTZ 6.2L 4WD fully loaded, black with black leather. Wow! What a difference in the ride. This Tahoe is very smooth, especially with the 6-speed. I have owned a 2002 Tahoe Z71 and the 2009 LTZ is almost like driving a different truck. The 6.2L has fantastic performance. My gas mileage around town is 13-14 mpg and on the highway about 17-18 mpg; however, my driving style does not place much priority on gas mileage.


Best Features

Bose surround sound system and XM-Navigation radio. You can upload a destination from MapQuest to OnStar and have the directions downloaded to your Nav system via a phone call to OnStar. Bluetooth that really works with my iPhone. Factory DVD and sunroof.


Worst Features

Third row seat that folds down instead of having to remove it.

Review

This 3rd Tahoe for us and is the nicest family car we have ever owned. Comfortable, quiet, and 19 to 20 miles per gallon using cruise control and driving in a sane manner. The fuel management system really helps with the gas. Runs on Regular. Easy to use controls. Memory seats. Dual zone heating and cooling. Both I and my wife are comfortable.


Best Features

For a SUV it has the best feel and handling of any I have driven. Navigation system. Easy to use and easy to understand. Heated seats and remote start in the winter. XM radio is nice and the On Star system makes me feel secure with the kids on trips.


Worst Features

3rd row seat room grandkids go back there.
