My vehicle has a candy apple paint job that I absolutely love.

2012 Chevrolet Tahoe Commercial

My Chevrolet Tahoe has been a great SUV so far. I've only had to do oil changes and put a new fuel pump and I've had it since 2015. It's my daily driver it came fully loaded with system stereo. Gas mileage is great to be a big SUV I'm very happy with my purchase of vehicle. It fits me my husband my 2 sons and we still have room for our 3 dogs as well in the back when we go camping. It's got 4wd for mudding and I off roading.

Fits a lot of people and is great for short travel

2012 Chevrolet Tahoe Commercial

Pulls when it gets hot outside. Paint started peeling after a while. The inside doesn't get air throughout car very fast. The comfort is ok. Seats can be very uncomfortable at times. Does not last if taken on a long road trip. Back seat is way too crammed to have three people.
