Most newer cars are good for 200k miles easily. That said, you might want to check out www.carsurvey.org, where real owners post problems they have had with their vehicles. Read what kinds of problems others are experiencing and see what you might likely face.

It all depends on how the vehicle was taken care of . also how it was driven. some people are led footed & that puts a lot of stress on the tranny as well as U joints. you can always car fax it. carfax.com

I have an '01 Tahoe LT. She has 206,000 miles. I bought her used 10yrs ago with 84K miles on it. I've never had tune-up, but changed fuel pump, new water pump, new alternator, & new starter & 2 batteries. I think she's done well!

2005 Tahoe (one owner, that's me) with 183,000 still running great. Had to change out small things, normal wear and tear stuff. Motor, trans, a/c, electrical...all in good order.

I purchased a used 2008 Chevrolet Tahoe with 102,000 miles on the clock. runs amazing. All I added was the range technology which stopped the excessive oil consumption. I always loved this body style.

I have a '99 Tahoe 2 door which has been the vehicular love of my life. Has 267k miles on the clock, and still runs like brand new. I've changed the alternator, and the radiator. Best vehicle I've ever owned.

2004 Tahoe bought 8 years ago used for 19k fully loaded LT with DVD and Third Row seat. Gets 18 mpg average and hauls anything I need to. Only at 70k miles. I expect at least 200k before replacing. May decide to rebuild when looking at the price of a 2017 Chevy. New Trucks pushing $50k or more. Unbelievable. I don't make that kind of money so rebuilding a 2004 Tahoe couldn't come anywhere near that cost. back to perfect condition maybe $20k. Happy with the Tahoe. Big enough that the little nats on the freeway don't get in my way and or I'll run them off the road with a polite invitation of what call a warning to not fuck with me.

i have a 2004 Tahoe Z71 and I love this car! I bought it new and it now has 150k. I had the transmission rebuilt at 140K. Engine is strong. Leather seats are broken in nicely. This car is so comfortable to drive and the most reliable vehicle I have ever owned. And best of all its paid off! : )
