View Full Version : Buying a 2004 Chev. Tahoe - any thoughts?
I'm buying a 2004 Chev. Tahoe for my wife 4WD loaded, everything expect for the DVD player. She has a Jimmy (95) with 95K on it and she wants something bigger. I'm buying it from a friend for the payoff $22.5K. The truck is mint and has only 8k on it. He bought it for his wife, who hates it. Gas mileage isn't a big concern my wife drives less than less than 10 miles round trip to work. Anyone have one of these and what do you think of it?
Don't have one, but I do have lots of experience with them. They're well made, solid, smooth, have good power, and are reliable. If there's one thing GM does right, it's large SUV's. Tahoes/Yukons are great, Suburbans are even better.
+1 on what method said.
Also thats a good price. My wife drives an 03 Suburban and loves it.
that is a great price for a great car blue book on that for private party is around $32000
Keep your ear out for piston slap.
Bought a new '03 for my wife and so far it has been everything we were hopeing for. Except the price of fuel is killing us.
My wife and I were just talking about buying one a few weeks ago.
$2.50/gal and rising killed that idea.
Having a 2001 Tahoe, 2001 VW Passat, and a 1999 Mercedes, Iíd rate their build quality in that order. The Tahoe hasnít had nearly the number of problems as the others.
2 months from purchase driver airbag assembly was replaced under warranty (still donít really know why)
Rear center seat belt, female end, broke while buckling: $175 IIRC
Rammed a 6 x 6 through the windshield while loading (yes, I can be a moron): $200
Has a little start up knocking, but my VW has so much more in comparison, I donít care. The VW sounds like a diesel all the time!
The truck has about 95,000 miles
