Big And Thirsty — spacious and comfortable. it is a good vehicle to have as a first car. fun to work on, and fun to have if you have a couple good friends. the vehicle's power is about 275 horses from a 5.3l V8 Vortec Engine. i know the vehicle is capable of hauling a 20ft boat behind it. the only problem i have with it is that it breaths gas. not the best first vehicle if you have a budget as a new driver

A Very Smart Purchase. — Just wanted more modern vehicle with built in Nav, Bluetooth, DVD, etc. This Tahoe did an outstanding job for me through the years and i never worried about it performing. Very quick for the size and nimble handling. Much more nimble than the newer Tahoe i drive with 20" tires.

Love It!! — This is an overall great vehicle. I have had 3 chevrolet suv's, the last 2 had over 250,000 miles on them before I sold them. Very dependable. As far as maintenance, I also found that the GM vehicles were less expensive to work on.

Pros

Comfort, ride and just about everything else.

Cons

Gas Milage averages between 15 and 16 mpg and it's a 26 gallon tank.  You do the math.

Great Truck — I love this truck! The Z71 off road package makes this the most solid ride I have ever owned and it'll go just about anywhere. 110K miles and all I've had to do (other than routine maintainence) is replace the power steering pump. There is a ton of room for the family and it can tow just about anything. The roof rack has a rolling bar at the rear and will can hold about 500 lbs.

Solid truck with great style.  Drive train is great.  Maintenance cost is low since parts are cheap.

Cons

Not very fuel efficient but that's expected with a large truck

Great Reliable Truck — I've owned this truck since 2002 when I bought it brand new. I've loved this truck for day 1. It's a solid truck with good power and styling. I still receive compliments on this truck even after 11 years and newer body styles out now.

Approximately 140000mi On '02 — after 140000 miles on the tahoe and 8 years of pulling a 2500lb boat through the various colorado passes i.e. rabbit ears, eisenhower, vail... etc, the only thing that I have replaced is the water pump. I love it. only recently have I been debating installing a shift kit for the tranny?? thinking i'll wait until that unfriendly day when it will inevitably go out.
