Was always a Jeep girl but Chevy might just be my new favorite.

We were looking for something that had enough room for our growing family. We like the third row seating but the only problem with that would be that you lose lot of storage space in back. Needed something that would also be able to handle living on a gravel road and cars just don't seem to last long for us. Ours was a used vehicle but has been reliable so far. DVD player is nice to have for the kids. Another con would be that the gas mileage isn't the greatest but I guess that's what you get with most SUVs. Chevy has been a very reliable brand for us and when it comes time to buy another vehicle we will most likely buy another.

GREAT FAMILY SUV. Great vehicle overall from performance to reliability

My SUV is great because it fits all of my children and more. It reliable runs great for the age of its I will not fade it in until it�s absolutely doesn�t run. The inside has held up well and it�s leather the only thing that bad happens is natural wear from the driver seat hopping in and out so much. Still get great gas mileage. I can go to the grocery store in one trip. I love the second row of captives chairs it makes getting on the 3Rd row a breeze. Overall this the best vehicle I've ever owned. When I do get rid of it I will definitely be upgrading to a newer Model of the exact SUV

Why we love our Chevy Tahoe.

I love the size of my Chevy Tahoe and all the space to haul things in it when needed, or using the third row seats for passengers. It rides wonderful, and I really like being up high when driving it as it provides better visibility. We can pull a boat, trailer and anything with it, which is very handy. We have owned this car for 11 years, so we have experienced some issues with it but have always repaired them because we love the vehicle and its versatility so much. I would buy another one if this one ever gets beyond reasonable repair!
