01 and 02 Tahoes are the most reliable

Had a 01 Tahoe that had almost 200,000 miles with no major problems until an accident. Bought a 02 Tahoe to replace it and have had no problems. Decided to trade in a 02 Ford Explorer that had nothing but problems for a 01 Chevy Tahoe. With just a little maintenance it too should be a great vehicle. The overall performance of a Chevy Tahoe is great. Large enough to fit all the equipment for a 3 piece band or to haul a trailer. Long trips across country is very comfortable. Only thing that is pain in the pocketbook is gasoline consumption. It gets about 16 mpg around town and 18-20 on the highway, with a 26 gallon tank....ouch filling up. In the end, since purchasing a Tahoe I don't plan on owning another make of vehicle in the future.

I Love My Truck

Best SUV I have every had. I started with a Jimmy and it has nothing over MY Tahoe. I will never sell it. I dont even want to upgrade. I stand about 4'11 or 5ft and people always ask How can you drive such a big truck (like females dont like trucks). This Tahoe has been all over and pulled a trailer through 15 states. What a truck :0)

Most Reliable Car I've owned

I have owned this tahoe since new, October 2000. It is a 2001 Model. I have now over 100,000 miles, and all I've done is rear brakes, tires twice ( i recommend Michelin) and spark plugs and wires, and normal oil changes etc. This truck drives well, although does not ride like a car. It hauls everything, and tows without problem. It still looks great, and I forsee it lasting for several more years and another 100,000 miles. If you don't mind the gas mileage ( 14 in town, 17 on the highway) this 4 wheel drive truck will do everything you ask, without complaint and will not leave you stranded. The only negative thing i could say is, Chevrolet, please try to minimize the rattles in your cars/trucks!

This vehicle is by far the best i have ever owned. Gas and go! I changed oil every three thousand miles, 278,000 miles an still rides great. No major mechanical issues. The way it runs, i feel sure it will go up to 500,000 miles or more. I think i will ride this one until the wheels falls off. Great vehicle!!

176,000 miles, a few sets of tires and a new gas pump.........other than that, there have been 0 issues with our Tahoe. We use it for pulling a boat regularly, working and hauling as well as trips and running around town.... It is comfortable, reliable and drives like a nice car. Everyone who drives and rides loves this vehicle.... Can't do any better!!!

This is by far the best tailgating vehicle ever. Just look around the parking lot. Your road trip will be comfortable and have room for everything. You will want an external platform on the back for the grill; those things smell on the way home. I plan to drive my 2001 LT to the Bears Superbowl; so I plan to have it for another 20 years.

This vehicle is great for comfort, driveability, towing and design. One should remember that this is a truck and even with all the improvements made, it will still handle like a truck. Mine being a 4wd means that it's higher off the ground and subject to handling problems in windy conditions. Also being around 5000+ pounds in weight, braking and mileage are decreased. One more thing is that being 4wd doesn't mean it can go anywhere or through anything. It is still 4 tires on the ground and they will slide and being higher, rollover, so beware of the conditions and use common sense. Having owned trucks since the 1970's, it is unbelieveable just how far the Tahoe and trucks in general have advanced. The ride is fantastic, the engine and transmission smooth and creature comforts fit for a king. Maybe a little pricey. Options are bundled together called LS or LT.

I had purchased this SUV in 2001 and drove it daily for 10 years. It was a great vehicle that never really let me down. 16 mpg no matter how I drove it was what I could always expect. I went to replace it with another Tahoe to find they were now in the $50K range, and the used ones all seemed to be fairly high mileage, so I purchased something less expensive. Too bad, I liked my Tahoe.

I purchased a used 2001 Tahoe Z71 in Sept. '07 after weeks of online research / shopping (and a few test drives) and came up with a winner. I replaced the brakes and tires and enjoyed a stress-free rough Chicago winter. I bet it truly can turn on a dime; it's that easy to handle. The interior space, both personal and storage, is great. The Z71 package provides an upgraded ride, adds leather, and eliminates practically all exterior chrome. It's a sharp looking vehicle. Proud to drive it.
