Bought my 2005 Z71 Tahoe late last year. I wanted an SUV that could handle family trips with safety and comfort, also handle snow, ice and mud, with some off road capability; as well as tow my large boat on occasion.. My Z71 can do it all with grace, luxury and style. It is thirsty on fuel.. but I expected that... with this brute. no way I am going to put my family in a toaster oven SUV or small car without heavy metal protection.. no complaints, love the Z71 Tahoe.

This truck/SUV is what a family needs, I love all the detail that went into this vehicle, power windows almost everything. I love that I was able to program my seat settings. This is a nice looking vehicle too, regardless of gas prices sometimes you just have to make up the difference and I'm really glad that I choose this vehicle. My entire family rides comfortable, I needed extra room to pick up my grandkids and wow I just love the way everyone feels about our mini trips.

Bought new with the Z71 package. Absolutely love interior comfort and sizing being 6'4". 100,000 miles later still like the comfort would like a bit better quality. Have replace water pump (bad gasket), instrument cluster, shift solonid, mass flow sensor, intake gaskets, fuse panel (bad wire harness cut out blower motor) and the fuel pump/sending unit needs done. I would think for building a bazillion of these Chevy would have had it all figured out by now. I foresee keeping this forever absolutely best road trip vehicle out there.

Purchased this Tahoe after my truck was t-boned but a driver who went through a stop sign. Have always had a truck so moving to the Tahoe was a big change for me. I like the body style better than the previous models and the newer models, too boxy. 05 Tahoe was the right fit for me at this time and the price was right,

I bought one of these and was very surprised by all of the features. Even in my base model. I can't imagine how I would feel in a fully loaded version. I would recommend this vehivcle to anyone. It consumes quite a bit of gas but it's surprisingly efficient for a vehicle of it's size. I Love it.

Bought this 2005 southern vehicle to replace our 2000 Suburban which we bought new and had 235,000 on it. The dependability of these vehicles is second to none. Previously had a 2001 Tahoe that I used for business, and was still going strong when I sold it with 287,000 miles. Love the Autoride suspension - had that on my 01 also, and the ride & handling it provides is tremendous.

Very nice vehicle in most ways. When it comes to gas I hate it! This thing sucks gas like nobody's business. The milage is laughable. But, if you can afford this vehicle then it's versatility is great for large families. We also have a 2000 suburban (which is wonderful on gas) that we also love and I drive to work daily (one way to work =50+ miles). Both are great vehicles. Tahoe has about 26k miles, Suburban has 104k miles and runs great.
