A great SUV experience.
Was missing the rear cargo net at delivery. No other problems.
After I got rid of my last car, I leased one of these in 98 for a year to try it out. I wasn't a truck guy, but I won't own a front wheel drive vehicle. This basically left me with the choice of a vette or a truck.
Decided on the Tahoe. I loved it. Turned it in after the year was up I went right back and got the 99. I never had a single problem with it.
Ran flawless, got good fuel economy (for a truck) 16-21 mpg. Rides like a car, handles well, great off road. The 4 wheel drive system is amazing. I drove in a blizzard that everyone else was parked in the rest stops, including the semi trucks. It was solid and safe.
Good build quality, and fit and finish.
Good looks and styling.
I would buy another one in a 'heartbeat'.
I don't like the 2000-2005 models. Waiting for the new revamped 2007.
I highly recommend this truck to anyone.
NOTE: I am dubious of any review complaining of mechanical problems on this (or most) vehicles. Read your manual, follow the maintenance recommendations. change your fluids, wash the vehicle once a week, and it should do you well.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
