Pros and Cons to a 2005 Chevrolet Tahoe

2005 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

This vehicle is very comfortable, easy to drive. Some cons to this vehicle is that it is an older model and some of the features are starting to quit or malfunction. It is however very spacious and luxurious feeling. It accommodates my 2 6 foot tall teenagers and their younger brother plus myself, their grandmother and our pets. It's great for long trips however it does seem to drink gas but that is to be expected with a V8.

- Joanna M

For being an older model, I think it still looks pretty new

2005 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

Overall, I love it. I have had no major issues with it. I keep up with usual maintenance, and everything has held up. The worst problem I have had was a shredded AC belt. But it was a cheap and easy fix. It has almost 250,000 miles on it and still runs perfect. It is the fully loaded version and has a flip down DVD player in the back seat along with rear control AC and third row seats. Leather interior

Tough but sleek truck with all the fixin's

2005 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

I've had a water pump go and rusting underneath the truck. It's a great truck though. It runs awesome. It gets me through snow storms. I feel safe with it. It's very comfortable and large so you have room. I've had no major problems with it just basic stuff. It's a tough truck. It has built in GPS, a video system and a Bose stereo system. It has onstar capabilities but I don't use it.

I have a white Chevy Tahoe. Drives great and runs great! Just big.

2005 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

I love my Tahoe, it is a 2005 so it's got some problems. Like the battery going out. My parents have had it since it was brand new in 2005. It has 256,000 miles on it and it's still going. It's now 2019 and all I need to do is get a new battery. But the car is overall great. If I continue to get oil changes it should last me another 100,000 miles. You just have to take care of it.

- Maggie A

Comfortable, reliable, Chevy Tahoe.

2005 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

The truck itself is great. The transmission in mine shifts so well. It's a very reliable vehicle as long as you take care of it etc... oil change, transmission flush, and coolant. The only downside to this vehicle is that it gets horrible gas mileage. Overall, this vehicle is dependable, and spacious and I would highly recommend it.

- Hannah P

Amazingly quiet and comfortable transportation and easily operable.

2005 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

My vehicle is smooth riding. Very easy to operate and great on gas mileage. When driving we all feel safe and secured in my Tahoe. Very comfortable and roomy seating. Easily can put so many groceries in the back end. A/c throughout so no one is hot or cold and anyone in The back seat can manage the temperature.

- Lori R

Best engine. The biggest SUV No major issues

2005 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

The best truck to get. The engine runs for a long time and they have the best engine. I have never had any major issues until recently do to too many miles. It is very roomy seats 9. passengers. I was looking for another car but nothing could replace my Tahoe especially with that much room

- Chinar T

Big comfortable SUV for big families

2005 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

The only issue that I find on my vehicle is the big engine, and in the city it uses a lot of gas, but if you are driving in the freeway for long distances it saves gas. Other than that it's perfect. It has leather seats for 8 people, sunroof, it's very comfortable for road trips

- Maria sanchez M

The Chevy Tahoe has lots of space for a growing family

2005 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

I love my Tahoe, it's very spacious and very reliable. Close to no problems with it since we got it. I have the captain chairs in the middle which gives more room for the kids to get in and out. I have the DVD player which is a nice feature for long road trips. It's ok on gas.

- Robyn N

Always go with Chevrolet!!

2005 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

Vehicle drives very well to be 14 years old. We have had this car for 3 years with very few and minimal issues. This SUV is great. If you are considering purchasing one do not hesitate. Chevys are really well made, reliable and powerful vehicles in general.
