It's A Great Suv — I wouldn't want any other type of vehicle I love the Chevy I wish they would go back to the two doors but this still a very shop vehicle I've owned it since 2000 and don't plan on getting rid of it anytime soon. .

Great Suv/truck — The only truck I would buy, 350 v8, big, power, great looks, great options and wont get stuck anywhere. Fast for its size and great handling in snow, or rain. The car is fun to drive in any condition. I recommend.

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

Ghost Rider — I use this vehicle for just about everything, from hauling vehicles to hauling anything in between. 4 wheel drive is not a bad thing either. With good tires and a steady ride can got anywhere I want!!! Fun ride to drive.

The car has been a workhorse.

Cons

Turning around corners, you must take wide angles.

Work Horse. — The one thing that I dislike about this car is its original paint job. The paint cracks and looks bad for its appeal. Next, It would be nice if this car got better gas mileage but that would be difficult to ask for a workhorse car with a drop of gas, so maybe I'm asking for too much.

Big Black 'hoe. — Most capable and dependable vehicle I have ever owned. Snow, mud, curbs, urban landscaping, etc. are no problem for the beast. Now the the miles are adding up its getting rough around the edges, but oh well. Still runs strong.

1998 Two Door Lt Tahoe — Performance: Acceleration is very touchy once work has been applied to the motor. I would compare to the acceleration of a Wrangler...a lot of torque and balls. Especially for the size truck I have. Brakes: Very good for such a big SUV. Upgraded the front rotors and brake pads to slotted and drilled rotors and Semi-compound brake pads. Handling, well it's an SUV so you can do over 40 on very very tight turns but it can handle 40 on most turns. It keeps it's ground. Build Quality- Chevrolet, it speaks for it's self. There built to last and the motor is going strong. No rust on any body panels, the frame is a little brown and some rust but some good sanding will fix it. No squeaks or rattles. Appearance: Big, Black, Gorgeous, the Soccer Mom SUV compacted into the ultimate SUV for fun and show. Exterior and Interior is perfect. Usually after 60,000 miles the captain's chairs wear out but easy fix and very comfortable. Exterior has some dents from rocks and the debris on the good ole' Northeastern roads of the U.S. Cost of Ownership- The price of my truck when I bought it at 78,000 miles was a STEAL. I would almost anything for this particualr model becuase it was produced for four years and they will probably never be produced again. Gas mileage ranges from 14-22 with work to the motor and a little help from a superchip. Maintenance...drive well and take care of it and you wont have any problems. Fun Factor- The best car I have ever driven.

1998 Chevy Tahoe — I enjoy my Tahoe. It may not have very good gas mileage, but for being 12 years old, it still gets the gas mileage that it was reported to get brand new. It's got plenty of room, and seats 5 comfortably. In my opinion it is the last of the TRUE SUV's... it doesn't have a lift gate on the back like the newer SUV's do, and I don't have doors on the back of my truck, it has a tailgate, like a truck should.

Cool Truck With Plenty Of Power — Even at 10 years old, the styling is still contemporary. Runs great even with the Whipplecharger with BAD computer intact, should have gone with a MagnaCharger. I just put $5K into to keep it running instead of buying a new GM. Hoping to get another 100K miles out of it.

Nice To Own — It's a great truck. I love driving it it handles well and is built solid. It can accelerate as it has the 350 engine it. It will go through anything and keep on going. It holds a ton of stuff.
