Very nice Tahoe.

I’ve owned several of the Tahoe and suburban nice vehicles highly satisfied. Would come back to Ron Anderson. Super service and honest people to deal with.

Most unreliable car we have ever had!

We bought a Tahoe LT loaded, all leather in 2016 for well over $40,000. We had all scheduled maintenance done by dealer in accordance with schedule to the T. Electrical issues started before 20,000 miles, back left door wouldn’t lock, windows intermittently wouldn’t work, rear window defrost wouldn’t work. Around 35,000 miles things started rateling and a portion of the exhaust broke and was replaced with modified piece from manufacturer to prevent from happening again. Around 60,000 miles ac wasn’t working right transmission starts shifting different. 70,000 miles ac goes out and gets replaced. Transmission starts to slip, dealer repeatedly reports normal wear. We don’t tow anything. 80,000 miles transmission completely goes out and has to be replaced, not repairable. 90,000 miles and starter goes out and is replaced. 100,000 miles transmission is starting to act up and exhaust rattles again. 110,000 miles had exhaust system rebuilt. Fuel pump stops working and had to drop tank and replace. 115,000 miles fuel vent issue and won’t fill up properly. Transmission is starting to slip again. I’m still paying almost $900 a month on this xxx! Don’t ever buy one, you have been warned.

NOT the most reliable car I've owned.

The car rides very well - gets decent mileage. Not happy with the Navigation lack of reliability. Owned the car for 3 weeks and the nav takes off pointing to random points on the map and then freezes up - entire screen is dead. Manual buttons work, but the touch capability is gone. Very frustrating.

Newest car in my fleet

This car was purchased to allow us to take our 2 Great Danes with us anywhere we go. It also allows us great comforts and amenities. The Tahoe is comfortable and roomy. We have not even figured out all the bells and whistles yet. Some of the highlights for us are: heated seats and mirrors, rain sensing wipers, lane of travel alert and dual climate controls.

Best Car I Have Ever Owned! Every Option Possible!

This suv is so comfortable for traveling, soccer, family outings, and daily commute use. It has more options than you will even know how to use. The bucket seats, heated and air conditioned seats, headphones for DVD player, seperate backseat bucket seats, 3rd row seating, Bose sound system, iPod hook up, several usb phone plug ins, cup holders and 4 wheel drive make this is perfect car for families. We also enjoy the sunroof.

Love the Tahoe for looks, performance, and power.

Love the Tahoe for looks, performance, power, roominess, towing capability. MarK Nickerbacher is a great salesman. I like how he looks out for my needs and isn't pushy or manipulative.

Looks can be deceiving

Vehicle looks, rides great and as of now no issues with the drivetrain. Everything I was looking for from an interior standpoint and comfort. 3 issues with the vehicle. 1- the OnStar satellite antenna went out, its been an issue with 2015 models where GM even acknowledged and fixed, for the 2016 there was a TSB on the issue, reached out to GM and they were not helpful as they wanted an service estimate which I didn’t feel I should have had to pay to get. The issue is wide spread on the internet, even videos on how to replace. I was able to do the repair myself for $25.00 and an hour of my time. But at 55,000 miles should not have been an issue, especially since GM acknowledged the issue on previous models and the same part was on my vehicle. 2- service drivers assist issue- there are 2 vibrating motors in the seat foam to warm the driver of a potential accident. 99% of the time it’s the left side motor wires that break, GM should make that right. I also followed a video to make the repair myself. 3- service side detection, the sensors in the rear bumper are poorly designed, allowing dirt/water/debris to short them out. A simple search on the web shows it’s a common issue. At $300 a sensor(need 2) is not something that should be bad at 55,000 miles. All 3 of my issues happened within a month, makes me nervous as to what’s next. Been a GM owner for 20 years, I truly love this vehicle aside from the issues, just hope nothing else electrical takes a dump. It’s out of warranty and I don’t see GM making it right.
