Bucket seats. Maps. Leather seats.

2009 Chevrolet Tahoe LTZ

I really enjoy my car. I have bucket seats so that makes it easy for my family to get in and out of. As a family of 6 we can all get places together and comfortably. The only problem we have had with this car is the battery died but that was an easy replacement. Oh, then the pedal sensor was messed up and we had to replace that but it was fast and simple and we had it running in no time.

Nice car but crappy electrical issues.

2009 Chevrolet Tahoe LTZ

My 2009 Chevy Tahoe no issues other than some minor electrical issues. We have had to replace the board twice and the wires to tag/ tail lights multiple times. The inside of car is nice, but the air conditioner, heater, channel, and volume buttons are all coming off and chipping and the 'fake' chrome on the door handle will cut you due to it wearing off.

I really like the bucket seats in this Tahoe.

2009 Chevrolet Tahoe LTZ

The only problem I've had is the interior splitting after some time. The bucket seats are the reason that I choose this Tahoe. We take this on family vacations and this is also my daily driver. Before I had a Yukon and it was also nice except it didn't have the bucket seats. I would recommend this to anyone with a big family.

The third row seats allows extra room for my kids and all of their friends.

2009 Chevrolet Tahoe LTZ

This is an awesome vehicle to own. Rides smooth. Love that it sits up really high. Love my 3rd row seat. Seats are easily removed for more storage. Purchased used has been the best vehicle that I have own. When I purchases had trouble with my transmission. The seller purchases a new one with no cost to me.

Our Family vehicle for everything

2009 Chevrolet Tahoe LTZ

I love that my vehicle, I have had it for about 5 yrs and it has not given me any problems it is roomy and fits my hole family. I can do grocery shopping and load up everything I need. We love our family trips because it's roomy the only downside is that it's very match a gas guzzler

Built Tough and rides pretty

2009 Chevrolet Tahoe LTZ

I love the room, rear captain chairs, entertainment system and sound quality. It turns great and has a strong engine. I like how it drives and rides. The only thing I don't like is the lack of updated technology on the newer models. I would like to upgrade because of that.
