    2008 Chevy Tahoe LT 4WD Review

    2008 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

    I have a 2008 Chevy Tahoe LT 4WD and I absolutely love it. We have a growing family so the extra space is perfect. There is the third row seating in the back. We have the bucket seats in the middle instead of the three seats, so there's space to walk in the middle. It is actually a very comfortable vehicle. The driver and passenger seats can be heated, there are two charger ports in the front, one in the middle with the bucket seats, and one in the very back with the third row seating. You can control the heating and cooling settings in the front and there is also one in the middle where the bucket seats are for the back. It does have flex fuel, so it does do good with gas on the highway. It does take a lot of gas to fill it up. I have no complaints about our Tahoe, we plan on getting another one in a few months. Definitely recommend it!!

    Pre owned 2008 Chevy Tahoe

    2008 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

    Since the car was bought pre owned on Craigslist, I can't say much about buying the car from a dealership. The Tahoe is very easy to drive, even for a new driver like myself. I feel like it is a safe car to drive since it is a big car and made of, what seems to me, a very sturdy material. It holds up well in the heat of Arizona's summer. The only problem it really faces is a need for a lot of coolant.

    My kids Tahoe they love it.

    2008 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

    I love my Tahoe I have 4 kids so the seating is great the DVD player helps keep them calm back there lol. It's very spacious and ac works great GPS is a plus and no problems with motor witch is great and good on gas the back seats adjust to go back so when we go on vacation kids actually are not complaining because there comfortable. It has a sky window so love that feature. The motor sounds smooth.

    A great family vehicle to use.

    2008 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

    I haven't had any problems with my vehicle. It gets good gas mileage and is always reliable. It has plenty of space for everything I need mostly my children as I needed nine seats. The trunk could be bigger in order to accommodate more luggage on trips. However it has a top rack and a hitch so their are other options in storage of things.

    I love the color of my vehicle.

    2008 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

    My vehicle is amazing. It seats eight people, the seats fold, I love the interior. It is very durable. It rides very smooth., As long as you keep up the maintenance, you should have no problems out of my vehicle. The dashboards and console are not as sturdy as I would like for them to be. A heavy item will crack it pretty quickly.

    A lot of space but a lot of problems!

    2008 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

    I love the space it provides but have had a lot of problems with it. The door handles easily break. The hydraulic rear gate is broke. The air ride suspension is not working and it seas and I feel like it is unsafe. I have taken it to the dealer multiple times and they haven't been able to fix it.

    Engine nightmare but the size is nice.

    2008 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

    I had to have the engine rebuilt less than 6 months after purchasing. It has electrical problems. I like the size not too big not too small. I do not like not having bucket seats. I do not like the cloth interior. I like the trunk space and being able to remove the third row.

    - Kris B

    The truck almost has about 200,000 miles and still runs amazing

    2008 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

    I have absolutely no problems. It Requires normal maintenance such as oil change, brakes, etc once in a while. It Runs amazing even with higher mileage. Has 3 rows kids never complain. Plenty of space. Anything that does need to be fixed doesn't cost insane amounts of money.

    - Jessica R

    Major fire hazard and high maintenance

    2008 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

    The most experience I've had driving this truck for almost 12 years is that sensors go out a lot. Wiring in these trucks can cause a fire, and nobody takes responsibility. My Tahoe has had major electrical issues for months now and no recalls issued or reply from corporate.

    Great family vehicle. Very durable and long lasting.
