Summary:

A great vehicle, with few problems in the long run

Faults:

Service Engine soon light came on two days after owning vehicle. 41,150 miles.

ECM was replaced, along with part of the wiring harness. 44,500 miles.

A/C condenser, and evaporator replaced, along with rear A/C lines at 45,000 miles. This was QUITE expensive.

Locks malfunctioning, passenger door and rear cargo door not unlocking (only in the summer).

Fuel pump replaced today at 53, 987 miles. Great way to spend the last few days before Christmas.

General Comments:

I drive this vehicle at least 50 miles a day to work and back, I don't see the problems daily, or really that close together.

For what the truck is, I really enjoy it for it's purpose, trailering motorcycles, winter fun, and bringing my family safely to their destination.

The body does have some flex, and when you take a sharp turn you feel the draft.

It turns out the reason the rear cargo doors stop locking (in the summer as you said) is terminal corrosion. You can easily just get a piece of sandpaper (very fine grit - 150-200) and polish off any oxidation on the terminals until their shiny again. Look when the doors are open and find the pins that extend out towards the top; these control the locking mechanism. Sand them and the terminals they contact until they're both shiny again and your problem's solved.

Summary:

Not worth the trouble

Faults:

At 35,000 miles A/C Compressor failed, at 40,000 miles the window motor failed and the A/C links on the inside of the truck, at about43,000 the alternator went dead and at 67000 miles the transmission needs overhauling. I will also add that around every 30,000 miles I have to replace the brakes.

General Comments:

I purchased this vehicle because the advertisements stated "Chevy, the longest running truck in America." I am not happy with my purchase.

One April afternoon, in 2002, I went to pick up my 9 year old daughter from school and she said, "Daddy. This car is too small. Can't you get a bigger car like Tammy's daddy?" Then it hit me. I realized the back pain I'd been suffering from since 1997 was not caused from "age." It was caused from twisting and turning to get in and out of today's small cars all these years. There were times when I could hear my spine crack. Anyway, I found out that Tammy's father was driving a Chevy Tahoe.

I did my homework on the Tahoes and went right out and bought one. All I had to do was take a test-drive and I was hooked. And my back problem was history. No more twisting my spine out of shape to get in and out of this baby. Everything I've heard and read about these vehicles is absolutely true. Such room. Such comfort. Such a beautiful ride. Such strength. I hit a big pot hole the other day and barely even felt it. But most importantly, my wife and daughter feel safe in the vehicle.

This is our first Chevy SUV, but it won't be our last. I've been a Chevy fan since I was a kid. "Like a rock."

Summary:

Great truck

Faults:

The door seals on the rear panel doors leaked and the carpet in the cargo area had to be replaced.

General Comments:

The Z71 Tahoe is our second Tahoe. Our other one is a 1995 LS and both are still running well.

The Autotrac System is great for Michigan Winters.

I wish that a rear tailgate was available for the 1999 Z71 package.
