Comfortable, reliable, beautiful, luxurious.

The 2018 Chevy Tahoe is absolutely amazing. From the outside looks to the interior. It has many safety features. A couple of my favorite are the automatic braking if I get too close to another vehicle. Another is a the feature if I swerve it pulls me back on to the road. Everything in the vehicle is electric. I can push a button and the seats fold or open by themselves. Even the truck closes by itself. When driving it I feel completely safe driving my infant son. It is also a luxurious vehicle. From the heated steering wheel to the heated seats. Everything in this truck is just amazing.

I did not realize when we purchased the car that the third row seating is pretty tight. I bought the car for the reason it had 8 seats as we have 8 family members. We have children ages 1,2,5,8,13,17 So It is difficult for the older 2 to sit back there. Also I knew it was limited with the trunk space but sometimes I wish there was a little bit more storage when we are all together going a long distance. (maybe under seat storage?) I also like all the safety features they have been helpful while driving..ex: blind side, rain sensors, auto brights at night, and when the seat vibrates when you're too close to something (not sure what its called) also the rear camera is the best one I've seen in a car and I honestly think the best thing is the rear seat reminder when you turn the car off. that has actually come in handy to me one time when I completely forgot I had my 1 year old with me as he was sleeping when I stopped the car.

definitely the rear seat reminder. I tell everyone about that. I think that should be a feature in every car (not sure if it is now a days) also really like the sensors on the car telling me how close I am to things and how it lights up with yellow and red based on where I am next to something..that has been super helpful when in tight spaces.

The Tahoe is the best vehicle we have owned. We love the blu ray player. We also love that there is a secret box with a password protection to store your phone or wallet.

The Tahoe is exactly what we wanted. We have three rows and 8 seats which comfortably fits our family of 7. We love the entertainment system it provides. The comfort and room of the vehicle is wonderful. The suspension is awesome and makes the ride very smooth. We are very happy with our purchase.
