I spent months reading reviews on SUV's and decided on a Chevrolet over all other manufacturers. It came down to a Yukon or a Tahoe. The Tahoe LTZ had the extras I wanted- cooled seats, leather, DVD, Tow package and was significantly less money than a comparably equipped Yukon . I have a 2003 Yukon XL with 120,000 miles and it's been a reliable vehicle, we love it for long trips- plenty of luggage space and comfort. My one and only complaint of my 2013 Tahoe LTZ is poor gas mileage. My 03 Yukon gets better MPG 17 vs 14 for the Tahoe. I keep expecting my MPG to improve since it's been broken in- 15,000 miles now. Quiet, comfortable and safe for my family of six trumps poor gas mileage. (No more demasculating minivans for this 6'4" 225lb dad)

Best Mommy / Family Car

I had previously owned a Chevy Trailblazer and at the time we should have purchased a Tahoe then. The Tahoe holds its value and has been a great car. It has the room we need but not too big. It's so comfortable and it gets better gas mileage then my blazer. We got the decked out model and it has heated back seat that kids just think is the best. For the safety features, gas mileage we felt it fit all of our needs the best. I just love driving it and the back up camera makes it so easy to park and get in and out of spots. At just under 5ft tall the moveable foot pedals allow me to drive without needing my seat so close to the steering wheel. A great addition to our family for sure :)

Love it, but

My Tahoe is a 2011 model, 2WD with 65,000 miles. I love the look, it rides great...like a luxury sedan.Love the clean, smooth lines of the dash. USB connection inside the center console was a sort of clueless design though. One major disappointment is the rear seats. Unlike the previous generations, the 2nd row seats do not fold flat. This hugely destroys the "utility" aspect. In the past models, I could fit a refrigerator. This model barely fit my new grill. The gas mileage has been my other disappointment. I am not a lead foot and do not drive aggressively, yet my model is getting 13.5 MPG around town, and 18 MPG on the highway...seldom driving more than a few miles above the stated MPH for the road. As for maintenance and reliability...I have had NO problems whatsoever. Just regular maintenance. One of the most reliable vehicles I have owned over the last 25 years.

Nice Quality Vehicle

by from Bainbridge, GA on November 18, 2013

This is my second Tahoe and hope the 2013 is as good as my 2002 model. The ride on the new one is superior to my older model; however, I wish Chevrolet would have kept the style front seats that were in the 2002 model. All in all, the 2013 Tahoe is a great vehicle for long trips and company travel. Bought my 2013 Tahoe from Chevrolet GMC of Quincy Florida and they went out of their way to find what I needed based on my request through Cars.com.

AC Delco OEM battery is weak link

I bought my Tahoe locally in February of 2013. This weekend on 11/08/15 my battery failed and I got a jump in order to get it to a garage to have it tested and maybe replaced. Pep Boys was open on Sunday and they tested it and it indicated it was failing. So I replaced it with a Bosch battery. I check on my battery and it is supposed to have a 42 month life from time of purchase. GM supports it to 36 months of life under their standard warranty. My battery lasted about 33 months. I have 55K miles on my Tahoe and this is the first time where the battery was dead and needed a jump. I don't recall having a battery fail on me this soon ever on a new car purchase. So I was disappointed in the reliability of this battery against stated warranty life. Lesson learned, will not buy AC Delco battery in the future and can't rely on AC Delco claimed warranty life as indicator of battery quality/life. Would advise staying away from that brand. Tahoe itself is a good vehicle. I am on my 2nd one after having had 2 Blazers before it and a Buick Regal before that. So I am a loyal GM buyer. Usually keep my vehicles for 4 to 6 years each.

I'm more a freeway driving commuting to work everyday it's smooth on the drive between the state-lines passing through and the turn by turn navigation works perfect with a OnStar is plus. I love how it handles and it's quiet on the drives its got the heated seats, backup camera, Sirius satellite radio, sunroof, bluetooth handsfree phone, advanced settings and more. Owned two Tahoe's and this one is my favorite one from being comfortable with the bucket seats and outside temp control as dual heated outside mirrors. It's a beautiful SUV..... With a great value the Tahoe has with the new quality of it.

I recently purchased the 2013 Tahoe LT SUV. I traded in a Nissan Titan Truck. The comfort and ride is far superior! We also own a 2010 Acura MDX and prefer the Tahoe for trips due to it's comfort. Great power and acceleration when the need is there in traffic situations.

Ilike my newTahoe. The real test will be the service that it requires and the effeciency of service provider. I hope that will be all good. Had an Escalade I had for twelve years that was peach!! Had very few problems with it. Hope I am as fortunate with my new Taho.

i ABSOLUTELY LOVE MY NEW CHEVY TAHOE. IT IS EVERYTHING THAT I HAVE ALWAYS WANTED. IT USES MORE GAS THAN I AM USED TO, BUT I EXPECTED THAT WHEN I BOUGHT IT. I WAS USED TO DRIVING MY CHEVY MALIBU, WHICH WAS GREAT ON GAS, BUT THE VEHICLE WAS NOT NEAR BIG ENOUGH.
