Tahoes are Great and last a long time

2003 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

Plus/Delta on the Tahoe: Plus - It has plenty of headroom (I am fairly tall) and good leg room. The door width is great, which is important for my mom She has limited mobility and needs the extra space to move into and out of the vehicle. Seating is comfortable - both in the front and in the second row. I opted for the bench seat, again for my size, and has been perfect. Bucket seats are sometimes too narrow for me, causing the seat belt connection to dig into my hip. Performance and reliability have been good. I am at 240k+ miles now. I opted for minimum features, so nothing fancy but everything (radio etc.) works. Delta - There have been some electrical issues, where sensors have needed replacing. This may be attributed to age and wear. However, issues have occurred at the most inopportune times - while on road trips. Since I rarely take long road trips anymore, it still is a great vehicle for local travel. Only other issue is the CD player ate a CD and no longer works. But I got basic audio equipment, and used the CD player ALL the time. So it is expected to wear out over time.

Spacious, Great for a big Family, not fuel efficient and has electrical issues.

2003 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

I love that the vehicle is large and roomy. Having room for nine people is great. I also like that the back row folds down and can also be removed. The downfalls for me are that the vehicle seems to be all over the road, I'm not sure if that's a mechanical issue or just normal for an SUV. Obviously when driving a large SUV, it's not good on gas at all, but I guess that's to be expected? The biggest issues I've had with the vehicle are that the fuel gauge does not work. When idling at a stop sign/light, the fuel gauge drops to empty and the gas light comes on. More often than not, even after filling the tank, the gauge will show empty and the gas light will be on, and it stays that way. So basically I never really know how much fuel I really have. Also, the Tow/Haul button is stuck on and will not go off.

It's a big strong SUV that I like 4 wheeling in

2003 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

I haven't had any problems. Drives comfortably and I feel safe in it. The only problem I do have is the air conditioner stopped blowing really cold air. It works but not that good. I also have 4 wheel drive in it and it pulls a boat real good. Seats about 8 people. My dogs like riding in it. Has a lot of storage. Can load a lot of camping gear in it along with people. Gets pretty good gas mileage. Its a 4 door which I prefer since my dog goes with me all the time. Has a nice stereo and sounds good.

The Tahoe has been the best vehicle we have ever owned

2003 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

Our Tahoe has been a good running vehicle my husband has used for years traveling to different states. Good gas mileage on highway but in town it does go thru quite bit. But with our big family of 6 it fits us comfortably. The only problems we have had are normal wear and tear for a vehicle that's 16 yrs old last year we had the transmission rebuilt she still running like a champ with over 250,000 miles on it

- Ashlee R

Loving my Chevrolet Tahoe through thick and thin.

2003 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

I have no problems with my vehicle. It's old, and it needs the regular maintenance. Right now I need new tires. Other than doing the regular oil change and service, I don't spend money on my Tahoe, I love it! The seats need to be replaced because of wear and tear, but the engine is good. It drives really well, we take it on road trips every two months because my daughter is in school in North Carolina.

- Howard E

The electronic suspension is absolutely amazing

2003 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

Computer and electrical issues. Alarm issues with key fobs, rear view mirror malfunctions, passenger window issue with rolling up. Sunroof derails occasionally. Rear climate control fan makes grinding sounds. Other than normal wear and tear it's a very comfortable vehicle to drive but reliability is questionable

- James M

Tahoe plenty of power very reliable but poor with the electric.

2003 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

Well I actually love my Tahoe. But there are so many electric issues that should have been resolved but they didn't. So other than that I love it. Has been very reliable for me and my family. Horse power has plenty that's never a issue. And very comfortable especially long trips.

- Ryan B

2003 Tahoe review great for road trips

2003 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

Large for a 6 person family. Great on gas for long road trips. Compressor gives out occasionally give out about every 2 years. Ac problems very few years. Large mirrors had compass to know which direction your going. Shows temp on rear view mirror had back window wiper.

- Liz M

It is a great truck and I will not sell it.

2003 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

I love this truck. The only issue is that it has push button 4 wheel drive. I personally do not like this feature. I prefer manual. The push button does not always work. It is tricky to engage at times, and expensive to repair. Other than that, the truck is great.

2003 Chevrolet Tahoe - The Perfect Car

2003 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

The only issue I've ever had is that the gas cap is loose. I drive this car to work daily and have had no issues. It runs perfectly. Being six foot seven inches tall, I needed a car that I would fit into and this car fits me perfectly. I highly recommend this car.

- Grayson M

Looks awesome on the road. All around safe vehicle.

2003 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

Its old but tough, very few repairs for its age. Pulls our camper easily. Looks great inside, roomy, leather seats. Looks good all over. Goes like a tank in snow, rain, icy conditions. Love the heated seats in the winter. Great stereo system with awesome sound.

- Kathy A

It is overall a good vehicle when cared for properly.

2003 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

It is a used vehicle so I expected a few issues. It has gotten me from point a to b. I have made some repairs, replacements and upgrades since I purchased it. The seats are comfortable with power doors and windows as well as power seats. Automatic transmission.

- Nigel R

Comfortable seating with great handling makes for a great ride

2003 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

Spacious interior with very deep consoles. The Chevy Tahoe does fairly well on gas but needs a minor tune up often. The tow capacity is great as well as very powerful. Very nice rims and great factory paint. A/C provides comfort throughout the entire vehicle
