Love hate relationship... that's how I would explain my '99 Tahoe!
Bought it in January 2000, 15,000 miles. Love at first sight. Bought it in Florida, then drove it home to CT... pulled in the driveway, put it in reverse, and nothing. Tranny went.
About 6 months later, fuel pump...
Needless to say, it now had 80,000 miles, and within just a couple of years, my radio lights went.
Seat belts in the front started to fray.
Always problems with battery corrosion.
New alternator in '04.
Water pump in '06.
2006 with 167,000 miles, NEW ENGINE!
'08 problems with pulleys, serpentine belt and tensioner.. these were regularly maintained. Still squeaks on and off. Drives me crazy.
09-2010 Still problems with tensioner pulley.
'09 rebuilt alternator...
'09 transmission rebuilt.
'09 transmission gaskets leaking.
Door hinges on driver's side have been replaced 5 times since '06.
Rear barn door gaskets leak.
2010 A/C compressor replaced.
2010 ABS doesn't stop well in snow. Never has, never will.
Now to enter the new year of 2011. Fuel pump needs replacing AGAIN! 204,000 MILES... Only about 40,000 on the new engine. Tensioner still not right!
Barn door pins busted... since '07 the dealership states you have to replace whole door to fix... so I guess I will make my own door pin.
There is so much more that has gone wrong. It is always maintained. And will always be the 2nd love of my life. And I will always be a Chevy fan for life.. but Chevy really should take a look at the problems. And should fix the common things that occur.
