Third row seating with complete tow package.

This vehicle has been very reliable with minimal issues. It has been a very safe vehicle in the snow and ice that we have. If the vehicle is properly maintained it does actually get pretty decent gas mileage for being an SUV. It has nice sound system, comes with tow ability and third row seating. Another nice thing about the vehicle is it offers heating and cooling controls for the back seat so everyone is comfortable temperatures for everyone. One negative thing I have noticed in all of these style vehicles is the stabilitrak seems to go out. The leather of the seats is good quality I have had no issues with any cracking or ripping. I also like the fact that it comes with plenty of cup holders throughout the vehicle. L have to say this is the second Tahoe I have owned and I would definitely would recommend this vehicle to any family.

I'll never buy a Tahoe again.

We've had to replace both rear view mirrors and front door handles. The interior upholstery, steering wheel and buttons are all frayed and falling apart. Immediately after purchasing this Tahoe in 2014, one of the DVD players quit working (which was the only reason I agreed to get a Tahoe- so frustrating!). We drove a Toyota fj cruiser for several years that was so much more durable and better made. The only reason why we got rid of it is because we couldn't fit 2 car seats in the back.

Its dependable and comfortable.

The only problems I have had is all normal wear and tear, sensors. . Things like that. a one time I was putting a lot of miles on it. . . Pretty sure there's over 100, 000 miles and it still runs great. I love that it has a Bose stereo system and all electric seats with seat warmers. It has a sunroof and a DVD player in the back. I don't use the 3rd, row seating very often but it is definitely nice to have. I also have a tow package on it so I can tow trailers, rave's etc.
