You are in the Chevrolet Suburban & Tahoe
What is this discussion about?
Chevrolet Tahoe, SUV

I saw a small pic in the Sunday Chicago Tribune showing an artist rendering of the 2006 Tahoe. It was a copy of a pic that looks like it ran in Popular Mechanics (according to the credits). It showed a restyled front end with a huge gaping grill area (ala Chrysler 300C and the new Audi styling). Overall more evolutionary than revolutionary, but I found this open grill design hard to believe with the current design trend of Chevy to run a bar through the headlights and grill area.

I have a 2003 Yukon SLT, Monday morning, the battery was completely dead. Wouldnt start, wouldnt even turn on the interior lights. Road side service jumped it with no trouble, the dealer checked it out, and gave the couldnt find any problem excuse.
Has anyone else had trouble like this?
On a side note, GM customer service had a tow truck to the house to jump the truck in less than 30 minutes from the time I called.
#4410 of 6471 RH pass side mirror broke. Glass replacement ? help for my 95 yuk

I have the broken RH mirror removed from the plastic support (a lil WD40 loosened up the glue and the busted pcs came right off) Is there a reasonable cost replacement glass? I don't want to swap the whole unit (its power but non-heated). I was quoted $30 just for the mirror glass insert? Any Ideas D~

Check the auto-parts stores. Some of them sell mirror glass.

Has it happened more than once? If so, you may want to have the service dept. reference a TSB for the BCM (body control module); every once in a while I'd find my '03 YXL w/ a dead battery. Service tech initially couldn't find anything wrong (no codes, nothing) but eventually saw the light (no pun intended) when I referenced the BCM TSB...

Thanks, I'll make a note of that, and hope it never happens again. It has only happened once so far, but that one time leaves doubt in your mind for the next week or two.

This may be a dumb question that has been anwered elswhere in this board, but what are the real differences in the Tahoe and the Yukon? Is one brand (Chevrolet/GMC) a bit more upscale like the Ford/Mercury products? On the inside, they look alike.
Feb 26, 2004 (3:11 pm)
Appearance, option packaging, that's about it. The GMC Yukon Denali does have different options which makes it quite a bit more upscale than anything Chevrolet offers. Chevy had the Z71 which is supposed to be a more rugged package, which GMC doesn't offer. If you're just talking basic models (non Denali or Z71) I'd go with whichever provides the best service/pricing in your area. Unless you're hooked on the looks of one or the other. I bought the Tahoe just because the Chevy dealer had the exact model I wanted on the lot. The GMC dealer had to find one. Prices were within a couple hundred buck of each other.

I bought a few months ago and did the research. The base Yukon lists for something like $1000 more than a base Tahoe but the GMC comes standard with automatic air, locking rear diff., liftgate, traction control, and some appearance upgrades. If you add same/same options on the Tahoe to = a base Yukon, the Tahoe actually cost more. Interesting!
That said, Yukons are(1)generally loaded with options, and(2)GMC dealers (the ones I visited)were not interested in bidding against a Tahoe. Couldn't get close in $ on a Yukon to the $ for a similar Tahoe. I don't think there's any difference in the 2 vehicles.
