1996 Tahoe — I have had the truck for a few months and i love it. It has a lot of power and sounds good with a flowmaster. The truck can be expensive to fix i just replaced the ball joints pitman arm and rear brakes.

Pros

Great sounding engine with plenty of torque, and the most roomy car youll ever drive!  Sound system is nice too. All around good car

Cons

Mushy brakes and poor fuel economy

Nothing To Complain About — Has about 260,000 miles but runs like a two year old car. Had to replace the back end a few thousand miles ago, but thats about it. Everything is awesome except for the fuel economy and the mushy brakes. Also suprisingly quick

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

gas mileage and maintenance

Very Fun And Affordable — i have a 1996 chevy tahoe 2 door 4 wheel drive that came with a 350 engine it has recently been replaced with a 2001 fuel injected 454. We changed motor,tranny and transfer case. As you can guess the gas mileage isnt that great about 15 miles per gallon,but when you here the 40 series flowmasters(true duals with headers)screaming and your head bounces off the headrest gas mileage is the last thing on your mind. The exteroir is hunter green with a camo stripe at the bottom. The interior is baige. When u set behind the wheel of this beast you know u will have a blast, but with my lead foot i am always tearing out axles and u joints.I havent had to do anything to the drivetrain,but regular maint. This truck will hang with most cars off the line. if you are looking for a fun and exciting vehicle,you might think of building a machine like this.Right now this is an everyday driver,so not 2 many upgrades as of now but will be soon.This is a prime example of a sleeping giant,when u wake it,you better be ready.

Pros

Towing, 4x4 capabilities, comforting easy ride

Cons

Gas mileage, tire wear.

Ok Old Truck — I like the truck, but I am ready for a change up. Its lost its newness. The gas mileage is horrible but it comes with the vehicle, i knew that when I bought it, but the truck is very solid and reliable. With it being older it can come up with a shopping list when it goes in the shop.

Wish I Still Had It. — My favorite part of the Tahoe was the Exhaust, The Power was exceptional. It did amazing in the snow and ice. The most fun car I've owned yet. If i could do it again i never would have sold it.

I Like This Car — Yes it has needed repairs before but it works like an angel. My dad and I like to drive this to our deer lease. It gets about 21 miles to the gallon I believe. The acceleration is great and the brakes are amazingly good.

Go anywhere.

Cons

Gas.

Great. — Looks tough, because it is. I mean come on, it is a chevy. You can go just about anywhere and pull just about anything. Plus it sounds good with the Flowmaster Tru Duals coming off the solid 350 engine block.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)
