Can Do — Have had two tahoes and loved them both they are great for everything no real problems and after your done with factory shocks you can up grade and get some bags for when you tow and bang you have a sweet ride. I like taking the decals off and adding a layer of tint in the back three/four windows.

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

Pros: Great Ride 4wd works great towed my boat and the largest uhaul no problem tons of room in the back

Cons: gas millage could be just a little better

My First Car I Have Owned, Which Is Fantastic. — If you take care of this 1997 vehicle properly, you won't have to replace much at all and easily do 300,000 miles with it. For example, I've had to replace the serpentine belt and re adjust the roaders because of my own lack of driving experience in the beginning. And which wasn't my fault to replace are the rear shocks. Bottom line though, this is a great vehicle, I can't express it enough.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Reliable vehicle, take care of it properly and this vehicle will take care. Comfort is great for trips, the drive is very smooth. All around fantastic vehicle.

Cons: Gas guzzler, that's all.

I Will Miss It! — Its handling and braking abilities are good considering the size of the vehicle. It does great offroad and is comfortable and roomy. The gas mileage is the only down side to owning this vehicle seeing as its a V8 half ton it uses a lot of fuel other than that maintenance and repairs are economical and usually can be done yourself if you have any knowledge of Chevy small block 350's.

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

Pros: It is a heavy and safe vehicle with plenty of room for a family. The 4WD makes it easy to take the kids out to ride dirt bikes and such and is very comfortable.

Cons: The only con is the gas mileage.

Its Awesome! — in my opinion the 94 to 98 chevy ck model of trucks and suvs are the best looking trucks chevy has put out before or since. the vortech 350 is much more powerful than previous models with throttle body efi. although the 5.3 ls series motors went leaps and bounds above that. in my opinion chevy trucks have always been of the highest quality. and even though my tahoe is showing its age mostly due to my abuse i still wouldnt give it up for anything.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: its a two door!

Cons: iv abused it too much

97 Tahoe... A Classic — Great Truck... impresive on sand ans snow... everything fits inside of it, including bunk beds and tables... strong, and powerful it even survived a heas on colission with a concrete wall and was able to drive it back to the garage. Has one of the worst mileages ever, poor handling, and the steering isn't exactly acurate and doesn't give you good feedback... could have more power for the displacement it comes

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

Pros: Impossing precence, great for cargo and towing, and has good off road perfomance

Cons: Mileage, poor on-road handling

Classy Ride That Can Work Hard Too — strong acceleration from 350-ci V8 with plenty of towing power. 12 years old, but looks and feels brand new. Classic clean, angular Chevy truck styling. average 15 MPG, better than people I know with 6 cylinder TrailBlazers. Handles like a typical SUV, but fun to drive in a straight line or in the mud and snow.

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

Pros: Power, durability

Cons: Avoid 2009+ model years, because of Obama takeover of GM

Great Machine!!!!!!!! — I loved everything about my 97 Tahoe, except it did not have rear AC. It was very hot in the rear, but I sat up front, so I loved it. I did a little work on the air intake and boosted my MPG to 23 on the hiway and 18 in town.

Pros: Almost everything

Cons: No rear AC

Army Knife Utility — Swiss Army Knife of vehicles. I treat mine more as a short-box pickup with a non-removable canopy. Underneath the 'fancy' station-wagon utility lies a real half-ton truck. Personally, this vehicle fits nicely with my mechanical skill set. There is not one part on this truck I wouldn't consider re&re'ing myself. (Unlike my previous early 90's Pontiac GTPs, which needed lots of special 'J' tools to perform ordinarily simple things like changing the front shock absorbers) As it is actually a truck, and given basic service, I believe it should last almost forever in an urban setting. It's great in parking lots as it has a very tight turning radius for a 4x4. Fuel costs are not much worse than the smaller, 3.4 V6, Pontiac GTP. (Mind you... Seeing as it's a Sport Futility Vehicle it promotes a more sedate driving style than the, very much more sporty, GTP)

Pros: Rugged. Inexpensive to maintain. Manuverable. It's a real body-on-frame truck.

Cons: Not 'Politically Correct'.
