Needs some work, but still loved Tahoe

2001 Chevrolet Tahoe Base

Great family truck. It has barn door feature rather than lift gate. Rear ac with its own controls. Issues have been with the ac but nothing severe. Normal wear and tear requiring replacement of the belt, and compressor. Cloth seats with center console that folds up allowing three seats in from as well as back seat. Has available hardware for third row seats. Did have to disable to steer assist for parking lots because it caused issues in the normal aspects of steering. Has had the engine replaced with a 'new' used motor. Downfall to the motor for this truck, it has a history of developing a piston slap. Its a v8 w just enough power, but does suffer some 'get up and go' ability due to transmission starting to show some wear. Does occasionally start out in second gear when stopped at a light. Otherwise a really great vehicle. Wish I could just afford a newer version, mainly for upkeep and the safe lock feature that's a requirement for 2003 vehicles and up.

Review of Chevrolet Tahoe. One of the best, reliable vehicles.

2001 Chevrolet Tahoe Base

It drives well and the stereo system is nice. There is plenty of room. It is reliable. The tire size is great. Low maintenance. Gas mileage is good. It doesn't have Four wheel drive and gets stuck in mud at times. The paint job is wonderful and the fabric in the car holds up pretty well, especially if you have children. I enjoyed the back windows being tinted and the alarm that came with it works very well. It is 2019 and have not needed to put a new battery for the key device alarm yet. I have changed the car battery 3 times and the water pump twice. I love this Tahoe and would consider buying a newer version when possible. I would recommend Tahoe to anybody. Great experience.

Everything about my 2001 Chevy Tahoe is amazing. An all around amazing vehicle.

2001 Chevrolet Tahoe Base

I absolutely love my 2001 Chevy Tahoe. The 4 wheel drive beats any other vehicle I have came across. It's great for the family and carpooling and getting all the kids to games and activities but it also is great for an off road stuff we run into. Getting stuck is not an option in this vehicle and it very easily pulls anything and everything out of any situation. Mechanically this vehicle is amazing. As long as you keep up with your responsibilities such as oil changes and services then this vehicle won't disappoint you. I have absolutely no complaints.

Converted Ford lover. I love my Tahoe!

2001 Chevrolet Tahoe Base

The Chevy Tahoe is a nice care for bigger families. It has a 3rd row seating. The seats remove easily for hauling. You can remove the 3rd row and lay down the middle row for extra space for hauling. This SUV makes traveling more convenient. The Tahoe has 4 wheel drive that makes driving is different weather conditions a lot easier.

Chevy Tahoe great for bigger families

2001 Chevrolet Tahoe Base

I've recently purchased a 2001 Tahoe, my family has grown in size and I had to upgrade to a bigger size car! Its super spacious and fits us all comfortably. I haven't has any issue with the car, it does take a lot of gas and I would say that's the only downside, other than that car works great and fits my family perfectly

Best one yet!! Dependable' cheap, plenty of space and loads of trust!

2001 Chevrolet Tahoe Base

My Tahoe has plenty of space for all 5 children plus myself and two other people. It is the best vehicle I have owned and very dependable as long as I take care of it I will for sure get many more years and miles. The Tahoe gets great highway and city mileage so it's not expensive to drive nor maintenance keep!

Better than Heel Toe Express

2001 Chevrolet Tahoe Base

Power Steering pump issues. Water pump problems. Great on great tho. Antifreeze leaks often. Interior very cheap, and easily damaged. Hard to locate parts to repair. Possible electrical damaged, may be manufacturer flaw, alongside steering pump. Have heard of same issues from other owners.

2001 Chevy Tahoe Quick Look

2001 Chevrolet Tahoe Base

Problems is the automatic windows and ABS. The ABS chip always malfunctions and the windows love to fail. Other than that it has been extremely reliable I'm at almost 200k miles. It's engine allows it to get up and go faster than most SUVs and has no problem climbing hills
