I Love It And I Would Buy Another. — I like this car and I like to ride high up, so I don't have anything negative to say. The cost of insurance and repair may be a littler higher than other vehicles, depending on the insurance you select and on the replacement parts, but it is worth it to me.

Best Suv I've Ever Owned — I've owned a lot of SUV's: Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer, Expedition Eddie Bauer, Honda Pilot, Jeep Cherokee and this Tahoe. It is by far the best truck I've ever owned. It is big, yet has good acceleration for a big truck; this style is in high demand...a lot of people don't like the newly designed Tahoe/Yukon trucks - too boxy. Tons of interior room, very roomy 2nd row; cargo space is excellent with 3rd row out or flat...not great with 3rd row in seated position, but better than most - if you need more, you'd have to go to Suburban! Never had a better handling vehicle in the snow and ice, so this is an awesome Northeast vehicle.

Best Suv Out There — Awesome vehicle. When you look at the other options out there for SUV's none of them compare. The only SUV's I would say that look better are is Mercedes GLK class or a Range Rover. Problem is, Range Rovers and Mercedes are out of my price range and Range Rovers aren't even reliable vehicles. Basically the only SUV's that compare as far as looks are over $100,000. As far as the other specs go, other SUV might be slightly better in different areas, but you got to ask yourself, are they really that much better to make you want one a vehicle that doesn't look good?

Pros

Very comfortable, rides really smooth and you can barely hear noise outside.

Cons

If your not careful your friends are gonna want you to drive everywhere. Too much room for me and my wife since we dont have kids or anything. We rarely get the chance to take advantage of the third row.

Overall This Is A Great Suv, Everything Works As It Should And Has No Mechanical Issues. — We have had several Ford and GM SUVs. Without hesitation i woul;d recommend this car to anyone looking for a safe economical way to transport your family. It has plenty of power for towing a boat and plenty of room as well as all the comforts for those long trips.

The 3rd row seats are bulky when folded, or you can remove from vehicle if you wish.  Tahoe LT2 is too big to fit in standard home garage.

Need Improvements On The 3rd Row Seat. Reduce Size So It Will Fit In A Standard Garage. — This is a smooth riding vehicle. Owned this vechile for 1 month now, and have not had any problems. Tahoe LT2 is overpriced and gas mileage is not good.

Hybrid Tahoe — I love the Tahoe but I am concerned about the repairs when that time comes since I still have my Tahoe from 1996 with over 100,000 miles and my next car will be kept that long with that many miles again.

Taho 2009 — LOVE IT I still prefer my Silverado 1500 Crew cab, but the Tahoe is a great alternative to a van, 6 speed transmission is awesome, great power (320 hp) and good fuel economy (I get 15-16 MPG and I drive it HARD)
