Roomy enough for multiple car seats

2002 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

The vehicle has plenty of room for kids. I have 1 rear facing convertible car seat, a backless booster and a fullback booster in the second row for 3/4 of my kids and they fit very comfortably. I can easily fold and/or remove 3rd row seats (without my husband's assistance) if I need more cargo space for transporting large stuff like a window or pool box. The 2nd row seat behind passenger also folds down if you need room there. So far the only problem we've experienced is that the coolant leaks and in a place difficult to get too (took a while to find). It does however run well and is much wider than our previous vehicle which is great if you have lots of kids still using car seats/boosters. I usually keep at least one of the 3rd row seats folded so that I have room for groceries, a stroller, and even my mother in law's walker (not folded) when needed.

Very good truck. Have taken it to many places. Very spacious

2002 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

My vehicle is very spacious, provides multiple seating for road trips or when you invite a lot of people. Very reliable it's also a very big truck. Took it on the snow does really well road was very icy but the truck pushed through. Only problems I'd say I have are the transmission problems I'm assuming this truck specifically just carries these problems but In the past 2 years it's had transmission problems where it will reverse but not drive. Or drive but no reverse so it's hard to be replaced multiple times and both times it was about 500 to 600 dollars in repairs. Another issue it has is air conditioning breaks very easily as well so that would be some things I'd like to improve on.

- Vanessa A

I love that I can tow small things with my vehicle.

2002 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

I've never had any problems out of my vehicle, I've kept up all the routine maintenance and got new tires but that is about all that I have had to do to my vehicle. I have cloth interior seats and they are very comfortable seats and good to have on long road trips. The gas on my vehicle isn't as bad considering that it is a bigger vehicle. I love that there's a lot of room in space inside and for bigger and longer legged people it's more comfortable. You don't feel crammed inside a tiny card, that's for sure. I love how my vehicle rides really smooth especially considering the year

- Megan H

American made and still going.

2002 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

I keep the maintenance up regularly. When the alarm starts to go off that tells me it's time for a new battery. I only work 6 miles from work so I get good gas mileage during the week and also when we take road trips. I recently changed my dashboard not that it was needed but purchased at a good price. Also had a new AC put in and updated my DVD screens in the headrest. Overall the only issue I have is just getting a new paint job, besides that I love my car. Also, I am able to get the parts needed to do the repairs myself.

I have a Chevrolet Tahoe 2002. It's a full size SUV four doors

2002 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

I purchase this Tahoe used. It is very reliable. The only problems that I've had since purchase was a water pump and battery. All major parts on here are original. It seats 5 people comfortably. I have only worn out 2 sets of tires since purchased. I don't have a third row seat but I have a lot of space for storage. The best features are the tinted back windows and back controls for heat and air so that everyone is comfortable while riding

Versatility of the Chevy Tahoe

2002 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

This car is absolutely the best SUV on the market. I love the way it drives, the consistency, and the reliability of it. The cabin of the car feels as luxurious as the cane when we got this car. The third row seating adds dimension and versatility to the car due to the ability to remove the back seats. I have never had any problems in the 17 years I've had it. The only downside is that it is a gas guzzler!

- Hannah M

The performance of the vehicle

2002 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

I have a fully loaded 02 Tahoe 4x4 I have owned this vehicle for 10 years it has 292000 miles and still is going strong I highly recommend this vehicle I am a retired firefighter and this vehicle has responded to a lot of calls the performance and handling of this vehicle is awesome. And the fact of the shift on the fly push button 4x4 was really convenient. This is truly the best SUV I have ever owned

- Tommy H

The Tahoe that won't die.

2002 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

Great car overall! It's just extremely dated the car wears out after time just like any other car. The motors in the window have worn out and are not a cheap fix the speakers also blow extremely easily. Mine is black so it attracts a lot of sunlight making it warm and easily overheated with its age comes internal problems as well such as leaking gas tank and blown fuses

- Maddie M

The Good the bad and the Tahoe

2002 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

It's pretty good, it's got a lot of space to haul stuff, it can pull a trailer no problem. I think the only real downsides to a Tahoe is that it's got some pretty bad gas mileage and the third brake light can cost a fortune to get replaced. Other than that parts are usually pretty cheap to replace and are usually universal with a suburban and Silverado

- Pat C

my Tahoe is the very best SUV

2002 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

Running very well it's v8 all 4 wheel drive 120 in dash everything tuned up 3/9/19. The color is a brown. All leather seats ac/heating. It has four doors rear door entrance,120,000 miles tinned window power windows and seats back seats lay down for extra space for cargo. Brown carpet in the back. It has cup holders front and the back CD player

- Shawn M

My car is getting a little old, but I have never had a better more reliable car.

2002 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

Old, but reliable and somewhat comfortable. Air conditioning, heat, airbags, power windows, power seats, new led fog lights, minor oil leak, '5' button does not work on the air conditioner/heater knob. Slight noise when starting up. Overall, I am the second owner of this vehicle and I couldn't be happier with the performance.

2002 Chevy Tahoe. Reliable Family Vehicle

2002 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

I have owned my Tahoe for 5 years and use it as my daily driver. It has 270,000+ miles on it and still runs and drives great. Other than normal wear and tear I have never had any major issues with it. I have 4 kids so space and convenience is also a big factor for me and it definitely doesn't disappoint in that area.

- Heather M

Chevy Tahoe that's as old as me still works not too bad.

2002 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

The dashboard is wonky, and it eats up gas which is to be expected for a large vehicle. Other than that, it's very reliable and is an overall pretty good car. Lots of space, and the controls are easy to use. Steering is surprisingly easy, I'm not the biggest fan of big cars, but it's actually pretty easy to drive.

- Ashton S

Great family car, lots of room!

2002 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

The only problem I have with my car is parking it! It's so big. Otherwise, it's an amazing vehicle, rides smooth, the seats are comfortable, the steering is a little loose but not too loose. The seats are great for car seats for the kids. The back row doesn't have the latch system, but the middle row does.

- Anna B

Extremely Nice SUV with Amazing Features and Amenities

2002 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

Nice ride, easy handling, power windows and locks, 4wd, 3rd row seating, leather seats, plenty of space, air conditioning and heating vents throughout, sunroof, nice custom floor mats, front and back cup holders, CD player but no aux cord plug, nice sound system. The front seats do not recline very much.

- Renee W

Chevy Tahoe - a great multipurpose vehicle.

2002 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

The Chevy Tahoe is a great vehicle for a couple or a family. It is comfortable with lots of legroom thus is great for travel. It is also good for hauling small objects like laundry or groceries. Gas mileage isn't the greatest but better than some other SUVs. The leather seats are very comfortable.

- Deborah M

Very nice and spacious family vehicle

2002 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

I love the size and space of the vehicle. The third row seats are a plus! This vehicle gets good gas mileage. It is a very smooth riding SUV. Makes it very nice when going on longer trips with the kids. It hauls trailers smoothly. My interior is all leather and is holding up nicely.

- Amanda B

Great vehicle to drive during all seasons

2002 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

My Tahoe is nice! 4 wheel drive works great! CD player works. Has air conditioner and heat that works which is a plus. Cruise control works as well. Has multiple cup holders and has plenty of room for a family of 6 plus. Is a little of a gas hog but runs and drives great otherwise

- Zachary H

Tahoe's are the best consumer vehicle

2002 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

Great reliability super comfortable and has great features including navigation rear camera and led lighting, only bad I see is oil consumption it uses about a quart of oil every 2 weeks or so, I have aftermarket rims and tires and it has a suspension lift on it of about 3 inches

- Jc T

It's got pros and cons, really depends on the person.

2002 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

It's a little big for me, and my legs stick to the seats in the summer, and the gas mileage is horrid, but all the car seats fit in it, it's comfortable, and dependable. Having the third row seating is also nice to have. It also has a lot of power so towing things is really easy.

- Gillian M

SUV with power style and comfort.

2002 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

Very reliable but not great on gas. Plenty of room for a bigger man. Comfortable and very powerful. I love to go out and just cruise around because it rides ao nice and smooth everything about it is great and I don't know what else I can write about it other than I love it.

- Nathan G

My review of my 2002 Chevy Tahoe it drives very nicely.

2002 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

I have been lucky it only had 2 owners had some transmission problems and to replace transmission it has some handling problems with the front end replaced shocks. It drives really nice and the seats are very comfortable, had some issues with ac but fixed problem easily.

- Joyce W

- Ginger W

My Review of my Chevy Tahoe

2002 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

This vehicle is very reliable. Its has lots of room. 3rd row seating. It has amazing steering. The only problem is my air conditioner went out. Not sure as to why. Fairly good on gas mileage. It has a bigger engine which uses up more gas than a smaller vehicle.

- Sharon O

Great truck must buy it now

2002 Chevrolet Tahoe LS
