The trucks and large SUVs from Chevrolet and GMC that were built on the GMT800 platform (1999-2006; Silverado, Sierra, Suburban, Yukon XL, Tahoe, Yukon, Escalade, Avalanche) will probably become known as the last best trucks GM ever bullt. They are still a great value if you can find a clean one.

Luxurious Power. — Dislike gas mileage but knew that going in. Better mileage than my 2002 Tahoe though, and wow, the upgrades they made to the Tahoe since 2002 are outstanding. Riding on 20" tires is very different but i like it very much. This vehicle is smooooth.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Wow.

Cons: Mileage

Great Car For A Vacation. — This car is great to take on vacation, or go to the beach even tow your boat or trailer. Otherwise I wouldn't recommend this "TRUCK". But thats what it is built for. If you live in the country or in snow areas this truck is absolutely great.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Comfortable ride. Lots of room

Cons: Terrible on Gas.

Sexy And Powerful Ride —

This was a sexy ride with it's all black style (wheels and deep-tinted windows included) and the 5.3L V8 Vortec gave it the power to get up and go (when getting on the highway or passing people, it felt like a much smaller car). It had all the premium trim options for its year of release, including an in-dash 6 Cd changer-- archaic novelty for some, but I loved having it, as I love spinning some cds. The fuel economy was pretty bad, although it being a z-71 2WD gave it a slight advantage over the normal z-71 with a 4x4 drivetrain included. This was one reason I needed to downsize in these $3+/gallon times. The ride was also noisy and not terribly smooth (partially due to the oversized A/T tires), but this was only an issue on old road and highways. The safety and confidence the vehicle inspired made up for any lack in comfort. Most maintenance could be handled anywhere. but price-wise, the later repairs (it was over 145,000 mi when I traded it in) started to climb in price. That being said, the engine will probably last another 60,000 mi. Tahoe's have notoriously soft brakes (have to really press them down before you start to get a response. All in all, it was a really great ride, a joy to drive and own, but it was time to downsize and get something that would go easier on my pocketbook fuel-wise and had lower mileage.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Handled a lot of highway driving nicely and it looked great.  It was a safe vehicle (partially due to it's size), and never had to worry about damage when popping a curb or going off the beaten track. Had all the luxuries you need in a vehicle.  Great for carpooling people around. In-Dash 6 cd changer was handy (still love the sound of a cd). It had a lot of power for it's size, and that made it get up and go like a car much smaller than it.
The large side-mirrors minimized blind spots.

Cons: Gas mileage. On a windy and rainy day I swear I could watch the gas needle drop.  It was a noisy ride, and a bumpy one (partially due to aftermarket tires).  Also, no auxiliary audio input.

Black Z71 — Very happy with the Tahoe. Extremely reliable less a one time electrical gremlin, otherwise flawless. The 5.3L has 295 horsepower and 330 foot pounds of torque. Love the heated leather seats, the sunroof, dual climate control, and the smoothness of a cadillac with a Chevy logo on the grill. The push button 4x4 in and back to 2wd is VERY nice.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Big, safe, smooth, quite, powerful and reliable.

Cons: Mileage could be better.

2005 Tahoe Lt — Pretty happy that we got it used with just 30K miles on it. Local one-owner trade in that replaced a 2001 Durango that had 149K miles on it. Had previously owned a 2001 Tahoe and always said I wanted to get back into one.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Fully loaded, leather interior, XM radio, On-Star capability, 4WD, tow package

Cons: Obviously a bit tight on the gas mileage, but with a growing family, it balances out.

Great Vehicle Until About Two Years Ago. — Couldn't ask for a better full size SUV. My only complaints are with outdated technology. Upgrading soon for better fuel economy in a 2014 with direct injection (Gen V) small block. Low maintenance cost and very reliable. 130K miles and still running strong.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Size, cargo, vantage point, fuel economy relative to size

Cons: Old technology.

Family Ride — I would say that this is a great car, for the price. It runs great, and it is very enjoyable to have for a big or small family, that just likes extra room. If you like taking road trips, this is def. the car for you. Check it out!!!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: The best thing about this Tahoe is that it is such a spacious family car, we have enjoyed it so much, and have been able to use it for small road trips as well.

Cons: It is not real fuel effiecient.
