Sip bit of the 2004 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

2004 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

The 2004 Chevrolet Tahoe LS is a great vehicle if you are looking for something simple. It had a V8 which has good power. It does have front cloth power bucket seats with a flip up center console. The vehicle is a simple one so it doesn't have tons of features. It has auto down front windows and lots of storage. As of reliability.. all in all it is a very reliable vehicle if taken care of. But the Tahoes are prone to electrical problems and the transmission don't hold up to well

- Austin L

Family tested/ready for anything SUV.

2004 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

I have a 2004 Chevy Tahoe ls edition. One of the main drawbacks to having mine, is the color, being black. But since I chose it, I suppose I cannot complain too much. Everything else is great! If you have kids, this is the vehicle for you. An additional third row can be added if you need it, or you can keep them out which I usually do for storage purposes. It is not the best as far as gas mileage goes, but it definitely is not the worst.

- Wesley E

Very comfortable and reliable SUV

2004 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

I love how my Tahoe has a third row of seats! The front seats have seat warmers which is another feature I love! The third row of seats folds down to make the trunk bigger which is a lifesaver with kids! The one major thing I dislike about my Tahoe is the bad gas mileage! I have also been having a electrical short on the inside but it isn't a major issue for how old my car is! It's very comfortable and easy to drive!

- Andrea A

Roomy and Reliable - Perfect Mom Car

2004 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

I purchased my 2004 Tahoe in 2008 used with low mileage. Being a mother of 2 young children (1 and 2) at time of purchase did and still does provide plenty of room for kids, strollers, groceries, etc. When running multiple errands. Ease of loading is important. My Tahoe has been extremely reliable with only standard maintenance necessary to date. I would purchase this car again without hesitation.

- Lisa K

Great family SUV especially if you don't like minivans!

2004 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

My Tahoe seats 8 people! Very comfortable! Back row can fold up or be taken out! Runs amazing! Got high mileage and still would drive it across country! I wish the stock radio was a little better but it is an older model! Very easy to change oil and filter on! Can be raised without having to have an expensive lift kit! Everything works in it like it was brand new though!

Safety first... the vehicle handles well on rough terrain, in high water.

2004 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

I love this vehicle. The only problem we have had is with the CD player and dash. We replaced both items ourselves. The vehicle handles well in rough terrain and on the highway. I recommend tires of 10 ply or more. We have had to use the vehicle in extreme conditions of rough terrain and high water. The vehicle's weight and stability make it a safe vehicle.

Review of a 2004 Chevrolet Tahoe.

2004 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

I love the reliability of my car. Along with the way it drives. The turn radius is amazing for such a large vehicle. The interior has 7 seats which comes in handy when hauling many people. It also has a removable third row which gives me more cargo room for shopping. The send row fold down completely so I can carry very large items as well.

- Leticia K

Very Reliable Family Vehicle

2004 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

My Tahoe has been a comfortable and reliable vehicle for my family of six. We have had to replace the heating element in the seat and the core in the air conditioning. We have almost 300,000 miles on this vehicle and it is going strong. We will have to rebuild the transmission soon, but we plan to keep this vehicle for years to come.

- Sabrina M

My 2004 Chevrolet Tahoe with 3rd row seating

2004 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

It has 3rd row seating. It's good to go to the lake, to go back and forth to work. If you have a bigger family it's good. It's a very reliable vehicle. The downfall is it does have a lot of electrical issues. The electrical issues does interfere with the air conditioning which also makes the gas mileage per gallon goes down.

- Cory W

It's a Joe Gibbs edition making the performance and look nicer than other Tahoes.

2004 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

This has been a very reliable vehicle. We have taken many long trips with no issues, the comfort is good not luxury but ideal. It's a Joe Gibbs edition, very sleek and nice. I have a few large dogs so a nice big area for them is what we needed for traveling and it is amazing. 4 door is perfect for a family.

- Kali B

My vehicle is spacious and comfortably seats my family.

2004 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

Very convenient for larger families. Repairs can be costly. I had to replace the transmission and the engine. I will admit it has been running very well. The gas mileage is poor and can be costly if you do a lot of driving. It does have some great features with heated seats, sunroof, and a third row.

- Kenneth C

It fits 12 people. It is a v8

2004 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

I recently just bought my vehicle it is pre owned and it is in need of an oil change to be done and break change since we have used it and it's time for a tune up. Other than that for the most part my vehicle is in good condition. I am ok with my vehicle maybe down the line I will buy a newer one.

2004 Chevy Tahoe, Durable and Lots of Space

2004 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

I have had no problems with the Tahoe. It runs perfectly with routine maintenance, the kind every car needs. It's great to take up to the mountains. Very durable and reliable. I love the size because you can fit so much into the back. And third row seating is pretty cool to have in a car.

- Morgan K

Great vehicle, wish had better gas mileage

2004 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

Great car, not fantastic on gas mileage but if you need a dependable vehicle that can carry a decent bit of stuff but is not too large this is a great pick. As long as you take care of it, service it regularly and get oil changes like your supposed to it can last till about 250,000 miles.

- George H

Comfortable reliable Family auto car.

2004 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

This vehicle is pretty spacious coming from a mom of 4. Not enough space on the back if all seats are being occupied. It drives smooth and has a great design. Seats are leather and very comfortable. Fuel cost averages on this vehicle about $60-70 in Tennessee. Overall very reliable car.

- Wendy C

Nice truck to drive I would recommend this truck.

2004 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

I love my Tahoe I have been driving it for 5 years the only thing I had to do was to change the water pump to me this is good truck should I buy another one yes this truck that I drive now have 154 miles and this truck still drive like a champ that about all I say about 04 Chevy Tahoe.

- Bobby H

04 Chevrolet Tahoe is great for large families

2004 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

I love how reliable the Tahoe is! The only issues I have had is with a oil leak and the fuel mileage. The third row seating really comes handy with four kids. When I only have my two then I can easily lower the third row for storage. I also never have any issues with ice on the highway

- Brittany E

Wonderful vehicle for families needing third row

2004 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

I haven't really had any issues with it but mine has 3rd row seats and an entertainment console in the back for the kids. The 3rd row can be the whole bench or half so my son can sit back there and I can also have room for my groceries. It makes trips so much easier as well!

- Maria D

Great except for TRANSMISSIONS!

2004 Chevrolet Tahoe ls

Almost 200k have changed transmission several times radiator water pump rear differential and complete front suspension. Luckily I'm able to do the work myself so not too expensive. Kinda a love hate relationship. My wife loves it I'm getting sick of working on it!

- Scott n Dawn
