#3846 of 6471 Clicking noise while steering or turning
Jul 15, 2003 (4:59 am)
I have a 2003 Tahoe LS that my family and I enjoy greatly. However, I have noticed a "clicking" sound coming from the front end whenever I turn to the left or right at the most outerlimits (tight turn). It has not affected actual manuevering, but the noise sounds as if something is being rubbed or hit underneath by the turning rods/arms. I haven't taken it in yet, but wanted to see if others were experiencing anything similar? I did discover a TSB on this site for 2000-2002 years that seems to address my issue, but wasn't sure if it affected the 2003 models? I will take it with me to the dealer for reference. I believe in and trust Chevrolet, but dealerships are just another small business, and I am apt to be ready for a fight to enforce warranty work when it is done at the dealer's discretion.

The original message post #3827 complained about wear & tear on the back of the 2nd row seat. The seat does fold down easily but I find it better for the children and dog to access the vehicle from the rear. Again, its just my opinion based upon the last few months of using the vehicle.
#3848 of 6471 '02 Denali vs. '02 Tahoe
Jul 16, 2003 (1:06 pm)
The '02 Denali does have Autoride, rear load leveling, plus it rides on Michelin Cross Terrain tires which both contribute to excellent suspension dynamics. Of the following vehicles I test drove, LX470, Yukon, Tahoe LT, Sequoia & LandCruiser, I felt that the Denali had the best combination of sporty handling and comfortable ride. Hats off to GM for developing such excellent ride characteristics on a 5500lb full-framed SUV. If the steering had been rack-and-pinion power assist, it would have been road handling heaven.

however the Tahoe does have autoride as an option, just to let you know. Good choice!

i currently own a land rover and am getting quite sick of paying out the nose for everything. I like the looks of the Yukon and Tahoe and just wanted some opinions.
2. Do it yourself maintenance - oil change and brakes? easy
Jul 18, 2003 (10:52 am)
I have an 02 Z71 Tahoe and the maintenance is rather easy. Oil changes are a piece of cake and you can get to filter without removing any parts. Have not done the brakes yet but they have the 4 wheel discs and discs are very easy to replace pads, I am guessing these are no different. I have 20k miles and not a single problem yet...

Currently own an 03 Tahoe and a 01 Silverado.
Bothe have the same engine and transmission.
As previously mentioned Oil Changes are easy
over 50,000 miles on my Silverado and no problems to
speak of. Also I have yet to need a brake job on the
truck. Our Tahoe has been excellent in the few months we have had it.

We had a 2000 Tahoe LT until someone t-boned us, it had 37,000 miles. VERY reliable vehicle never to the garage except for oil changes and recalls (first year model). We now have a 2003 Tahoe Z71, its been a great truck for the past 3 weeks, i'd say your making a good choice!
#3854 of 6471 window motor/regulator
Jul 19, 2003 (8:18 pm)
I have a 2000 Tahoe with the standard window motor/regulator problems. FYI: I was able to purchase a complete after-market kit ( though I am a skeptic, this thing is identical) for $95 as opposed to the $240 dealer part. Also, if you have a bad regulator and replace the entire unit, keep the motor(if it's o. k.) and gear housing assembly. Sooner or later another motor is going to go bad and ,if you got a motor, you CAN swap it for the bad one. It takes a little time and patience but is well worth the effort.

Co-worker developing same trouble. Please post complete ordering info for complete motor/regulator assembly.
