I agree with the unusual window regulator problem. I just obtained a 2000 Limited from my borhter-in-law that keeps immaculate records. Both rear door window regulators were replaced and the drivers door motor replaced, then another motor and regulator put in drivers door. All working good not, but surprisinig such an expensive SUV that is #1 seller having so much problem with certain parts.

I totally dissagree with all the comments I have read. Yes it is true that you might have to change the window motors later on the future, but it happens to any other as well. Luxury does not come in cheap either. I have a 2000 Escalade as well, and to tell you the truth I like my LIMITED better, it's classy and sporty at the same time. I guess it just depends what type of person you are. If you are young and want to be rolling "cool" and in class, you would consider the LIMITED.

I have a 2000 tahoe limited that I bought new. I have had to replace the transmission only!!! no other problems have occurred since new, no window, door motors of any kind. I feel the only reason the transmission was replaced is due to the fact that I tow behind it every day. (100,000 miles) I love gm cars and trucks. I've owned many "over seas" cars and trucks, but you will never get me out of my chevy's.

I have a 2000 Tahoe Limited That has over 140,000 miles and the V8 Vortec 5.7 Liter Engine. I recently replaced the transmission, no othere major problems. The 2000 Tahoe Limited was built on the same assembly line as the 99 Escalade and Denali. It's a great truck, and I'm rolling it till the wheels fall off.

I have a 2000 Tahoe limited, and I have to say that the vehicle has been very good to me... I drive hard, but I keep up on normal maintenance. I have close to 100,000 miles and haven't had to do any major repairs There are a couple of things that I would have changed..
1st. More horse power. for a truck that heavy, The so called 250 HP is just not enough. I had it put on a dyno and the truck delivered a whole 178 HP to the rear tires.. It is in need of some more get up and go. But I did some engine up grades, so that problem is solved...
2nd. I don't care for the center console. It shakes and doesn't look that great. So I traded it out for the 99 Escalade.. It was pretty tight, but it looks very nice and it stopped shaking...
3rd. The brakes are terrible! but of course GM has never had much luck with the brakes. Ford holds that title. And Dodge is worse than GM. this was the only real expensive up grade I had to make. A set of Brembo cross drilled and slotted rotors, pads and calipers and the truck about threw me into the windshield...
But, other than that, I put on a set of 20 inch chrome rims and now my friends are jealous...

I Have a 2001 Tahoe with the 5.3 liter engine and with the dual exhaust we get over 25 mpg. It has over 160,000 miles on it, and we have never had any issue with it, small or large. The power from the motor is enough to throw you back in the seats. The inside of the truck hasn't had anything flake or crack. overall just a great truck!

I have a 2000 limited, with 289,xxx miles on it :-) What? Yes, almost 300,000. Runs like new!! Love my truck. American muscle.

I got my Tahoe in 2003 and have had no problems with it except the fuel pump, but it has 185,000 miles. I am 26 now and I love my hoe now more than ever. I still get people turning their heads, and cops just dogging. All I have done is added some sub woofers and nothing else. Oh yeah, gas, a lot of gas, but that's what you get with a 5.7L V8 ha ha.

I have a 2000 Limited and it runs great, I just took it to Vegas this past weekend for memorial day (with 160k miles on it) doing 90mph on the I-15.
The only problem I would say it has is small electrical issues over the past few years, but then again I've upgraded the sound system and upgraded the headlights to HID's (6000k).
The brakes could be better, but I slapped on a set of 20" iroc's so they do tend to wear out faster than normal.
The Limited is an awesome truck to own and drive, it's a real head turner.
Overall the truck is 9/10... on my list.

It's pretty much luck of the draw with GM, I have a 2000 Tahoe Z71 that is in as good condition as when it bought it brand new, the only problems were a couple years ago when the tailights would go out due to wiring bugs, but it was an easy fix. Right now the truck has 65000 miles and still runs perfect

I own a 1999 Chevy Tahoe, only problem I have experienced was the fuel pump. Nothing else.

I bought my Limited in "03" with 31k on it. Now has 196k and is the best vehicle I have ever owned, even though the rear went this year. It rides like a Caddy and I get 22 mpg at 65 mph. I also have a 1989 Suburban with 509,000 miles on the original engine, and it still runs great. Chevy's are the BEST!

I have a 2000 Tahoe Limited, and I love it. I've had a few electrical problems with the locking mechanism, but other than that... it's WONDERFUL!!! It floats when you push it, and it flies when you gun it. HEAVY CHEVYs all day...

I agree the 2000 Tahoe limited is one of the best trucks ever. I bought one in 1999 and I still have it with no problems. It's the best buy ever. I paid 38000 out the door, and it was the best 38000 ever. My Tahoe only has 34xxx miles. That's how clean it is.
22nd Nov 2010, 01:08
Wow. You just don't take care of your trucks. Because I have a 2002 Tahoe LT Z71 and it's got 285,000 miles on it. No problems whatsoever. It still whips some ass.

Just got my Tahoe. She's bad ass, and I just need to change the knock sensor and a vacuum hose. Oh yeah, giggity giggity ;)

I have a 2000 Tahoe Limit that I bought new. It has 212000 miles on it and I haven't had any major problems with it except for minor electrical problems. It runs like a champ, I love this truck, it's a real head turner. I consider trading it for a new Tahoe, but can't seem to let it go. I have several people who have asked me to notify them before selling.

I been have had my 2000 Limited Tahoe since 2006, and I still have my baby. I love it and it's still running like champion. GM forever.

I just bought my limited Tahoe a month ago. It has over 200k on the original engine, no leaks or noise at all, well taken care of... has dual Flowmasters dumped before the rear axle. It's a beast and I love it. It's got a new paint job, but I can't seem to find the original door badges... plan on getting some air suspension put on and some nice billet wheels.

Before pumping a lot of money in cosmetics, I would live with a high mileage vehicle for a while. See how it's faring with its drivetrain, computer and electric systems etc. I do all the wheel and tire upgrades at very low mileage. My money would be set aside for mechanical needs. I would do belts, hoses, shocks, brakes, complete fluid changes etc. right away.

I have a 2000 Limited, bought it a year and a half ago with 140,000 miles. Great truck, comfortable, good looking, reliable and HARD RIDING. I believe it has the original factory heavy duty shocks. I just had new Michelins installed and that helped, but not enough. On the interstate highway it is smooth at 85, the problem is around town with pot holes and bumps. Don't know which brand or model to get, but thought about getting the original shocks for the "regular" 2000 Tahoe. Any better ideas?
