Third row seating sure, if you do not have more than one car seat that is.

I purchased my vehicle used so with that comes little issues that purchasing a brand new car wouldn't have. For instance, the door handle is broken, so whenever I go to open or close my door I can feel the broken piece split a little while pulling my door closed. It is annoying but there is an option to fix in the future. I really love how much space there is in the back of the vehicle when I remove the third row seating-I can fit all my groceries and then some. Something annoying about the second row seating and having car seats is that the anchors for the car seats are located on the middle and one out seat. So, I can have my car seats strapped into those two spots but if I want to use the third row seating, I would have to move the outer car seat to the seat that does not have anchors in the second row. That to me makes that third row seating kind of obsolete because I feel like anchors are really the safest option for car seats and moving my son to a different spot is not really an option (to me). That has to be one of the most frustrating things about this Tahoe.

Safe, secure, high tech and comfortable!

My husband talked me into buying our Tahoe and it did not disappoint! We have had absolutely no problems with it. We are a family of five, so we are very comfortable in it. There's plenty of room and we do not feel like we are crammed in together. Even though it is roomy, I do not feel like I am driving a bus, which I thought I would. I love the alert features that let me know important things like the air pressure being low in a tire. The notification even tells me which tire it is. My favorite thing about my Tahoe is how safe I feel in it. I have always had a car and have felt vulnerable out on the road. Our Tahoe definitely gives me the confidence I need when driving around with my family.

Chevy Tahoe you cannot go wrong.

Great performing luxury vehicle. Placement of the door locks situated where the driver can inadvertently lock the car with the keys inside. The buttons for the seat heat and cooler share space with the adjustable forward and backward auto seat adjustment. If you are not careful you will hit the wrong sensor. This could cause a driving problem if the seat moved back while the auto was in motion. The hook up with the iPod worked initially however it no longer will connect. According to service there is nothing wrong with the electronic system.. Overall, this vehicle has 140,000 miles on the odometer. We have had ever service since it was new. This is the best Chevrolet we have ever owned.
