1999 Chevrolet Tahoe LT 5.7 from North America


Great family/rec/work/travel vehicle


Nothing has went wrong with my Tahoe at all. Just general maintenance, brakes, battery etc. Best car ever owned.

General Comments:

Best car I have owned out of 22 different models of vehicles. Will own one for the rest of my life.

1999 Chevrolet Tahoe LT 5.7 Vortec from North America


Great car


I have owned 3 Chevy Tahoes, one 2 door, and 2 4 doors. Every one of my Tahoes has been lifted and modified in someway, shape, or form.

My latest 1999 Tahoe, a four door of course, has now had 3 motors put into it, about 5 4l60e transmissions put into it, 3 transfer cases put into it, 3 rear axles put into it, and two front diff, not including all the high performance suspension parts put on, or the lift kit put on.

I've change the alternator about 17 times, and the power steering pump just as many times.

I've replaced the water pump 3 times, and all of the front engine accessories.

Had numerous distributors and ignition related problems.

Had to replace the drive shaft about 15 times.

Right after I got done with all that work, which was in about a 4 month timespan, the cads went out and the O2 sensors, and then the pass-lock sensor, and then the ECU.

I've replaced the whole interior, and just about everything on the exterior, and stuff just keeps breaking, no matter what I do, but the best part of it is now that I've replaced everything, it's now all under warranty, so it's free to fix, and all it takes is a little bit of labor.

I've done all the fixing myself, and I absolutely love this Tahoe. Yeah it's a lemon, and it breaks all the time and costs a lot, but I've put the truck through hell and back, including driving through a pond.

Great truck.

Wish they still made them


Wouldn't start. Thought it was the fuel pump. Replaced it, but found it was only a leak, and the mechanic fixed it.

General Comments:

Love this Tahoe. I'm used to a small car, but I quickly got over that, as it gets me through all winter weather! We purchased a second Tahoe, and love it just as much.

My only complaint is that I go to work in the dark, and I wish the radio had lights to see the panel for the CD player.

They do still make them, but I wish they've still made them in the 1992-99 body style (that was my favorite body style of the Tahoe's/Yukon's), I don't really like the newer body style all that much.

Noticed you stated "favorite body style Tahoe/Yukon" being year '92-'99. Same body style? Yes (sort of). That actually would have been '88-'99 (and I believe 2000 on some heavy duty work trucks from carried over parts/body's/frames etc. Like 4dr crew cabs, box trucks, stake beds etc). As for actual Tahoe/Yukon models? That would have been '95-'99 (and again "2000" models on "Limited"/"Z71" Tahoe's if I'm not mistaken). There was no Tahoe/Yukon in '92, '93, or '94. Good looking trucks nonetheless, regardless of what precise model.

Chevy needs to step it up


I have a 1999 Chevy Tahoe 4x4. I bought it with 180,000 miles. So far I had to replace the fuel pump - $300.

My door handles on the driver and passenger are broken.

The windows only roll up on the driver's side.

Underneath the hood, I have a leak from the heater hoses that I have replaced 2 times.

The timing is off; that is another problem I'm having.

If given a choice, I would drive this truck off a cliff!!!

"The windows only roll up on the driver's side."

How do you know they only roll up if you can't roll them down?...

Let me quote this "I bought it with 180,000" and you've only had a handful of problems? You should be happy that's all that's gone wrong.
