I really cannot talk about how much I enjoy the Tahoe.

2012 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

I really enjoy my Chevrolet Tahoe. It is very easy to run around town running errands in it. I usually have the third row of seats out of my back and I can easily put anything in the back. When I need to go somewhere with the whole gang I can easily put the third row in and I have lots of seating for everyone. I really enjoy that I am able to press a button to both open and close the back. Mine also has a push start which comes in handy when it is very cold or hot outside. I will most definitely be buying another way down the road when I need to purchase a new car. Love it!

5/5 Definitely recommend!!

2012 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

I love the 2012 Chevrolet Tahoe because of the space. It has space for a decent size family without the 'family van' look. Also it's very durable & comfortable. We have moved across states pulling a trailer behind it and only had problems due to rain, but that's to be expected! I would definitely recommend this vehicle to family and friends.

2012 Chevy Tahoe pros and cons.

2012 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

Blind spot looking back towards passenger side and back seat headrests don't fold down to allow better view. 3rd row does not fold into floor and takes up over a foot of space folded up. Black interior shows everything. Otherwise, I am pleased with the way it drives, space and have had very few problems after 231,000 miles of daily driving.

My love for my car, A Chevy Tahoe.

2012 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

I have had two Chevy Tahoe. I have found both of them to be extremely reliable. We have not had to do much maintenance on either one. Just routine maintenance. I think that the engine is great. The interior in the 2012 does seem a little bit crummy. Just seems not as study as they used to be. Just more plastic Tahoe

2012 Tahoe good but hungry

2012 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

My SUV is generally a smooth ride. Reliable in inclement weather and trustworthy enough to trek in up 2ft of snow. Perfect for large families however it hogs gas like crazy. I spend about 100 bucks every week or so. Poor gas mileage. However vehicle is reliable with minimal issues over the years.

- Amanda K

My Tahoe review, good and bad.

2012 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

I love my Tahoe. It is so spacious and being able to change the position of the seats really helps when carrying cargo or dogs. It's high off the road which I love but I tend to clip curbs and have to have alignments done. The heated seats are the best and I could do without them now.

- Cindy L

Safe with my kids in style.

2012 Chevrolet Tahoe LS

I love my Tahoe. I travel all over the place with my kids and their sports and needed something reliable to get us there safe. Its big enough I can throw all of our luggage in and all their softball and swimming stuff for games. Just all around gets the job done and it looks good too.
