What is this discussion about?
Chevrolet Tahoe, SUV
#2802 of 6471 2001 Tahoe 5300 with Lifter\Rocker noise.
Aug 26, 2002 (2:20 pm)
My 2001 Tahoe has developed the telltale "valve tick" symptomatic of collapsed lifters at only 40,000 miles. I have maintained it properly, changing the oil whenever the "message center" told me it was time to do so and have always used synthetic oil. I have not yet started to pursue what if anything Chevy will do for me.
Is there anybody out there who has developed this problem also, and if so what was your experience like?
Inquiring minds want to know!

I am about to buy a 03 Tahoe. I would really appreciate it if someone could give me an idea of what a good price would be for me to shoot for. (2003 4x4LT or LS Doesn't matter ) Thanks:)

With the 2003's only out about 3 weeks now, it's hard to tell what kind of deal a dealer will make for you. I bought a 2002 a little over a week ago that was one of the last off the line (some papers I found under a seat showed a 7/23 build date) using the 0% financing and here's what I got: MSRP $41,588 (LT with 4WD, 3rd seat, trailer package, etc); dealer went down to $37,299 before deducting my trade-in. Next they gave me $16,000 for my 2001 Mazda Tribute LX/4WD w/22,000 miles, which brought it down to $22,299. Retail for a used Tribute is around $18,000, if they're lucky. There's a lot of competition here in Oklahoma City, so the deals may be better here than where there is not much competition. Good luck!!

Has anyone else experienced a "rattling" type noise behind the AC or radio? It comes and goes on my Yukon and does not seem to be related to anything. I took it into the dealer this weekend and they mentioned that a number of other people have complained of this but they do not know the problem.

It is probably the radio cooling fan. Next time it happens turn the radio off. If the noise goes away that's the problem. Tell the dealer what you did, and what happened. They should change out the radio to get rid of the problem.

The condition on a "buy-back" vary state by state according to your state's lemon laws. A lemon law case is different from manufacturer sponsored arbitration, where the manufacturer has most of the control. Check with your state attorney general's office to get specifics of you lemon law.

Just as a data point, I've had my 2001 Z71 Tahoe for about 15 months, it has about 15,000 miles, and I've never
added a drop of oil between oil changes. I've notice it drop maybe 1/4 of a quart between changes.

I was just wondering if anyone else could tell me what they paid for their new 02 or 03 Tahoes. It would be greatly appreciated. Thanks:)

I pretty much paid invoice in a roundabout way. Plus took the 0%.
