Mar 17, 2005 (6:30 am)
I had the same exact problem with my 2002 Tahoe. I live in SC, so it isnt like the heating system has been overloaded and taxed day in and day out to the point of breaking. On one particularly cold day, my husband had to pick me up halfway home because the car was too cold for my child to even ride in it.I took it to a few dealers and they said it worked fine per the chevy specifications. That is they turned the heat all the way on high, the temp on high, and stuck a thermometer up in there and it warmed it up. But beyond the technicalities and double talk they used, any half wit could stick their hand in front of a vent and feel freezing cold air blowing out. Plus on less cold days where you need a little heat to knock the chill off, it isnt practical to run your heat on full temp, full fan!!!

Maybe someone transposed some numbers somewhere. Or maybe you're in a very, very expensive zip code area . I can't get one to pencil out much more than $40,000 when I try it (link).
Please send in a Contact us form and it'll get routed to the right department. Please include the style you are pricing. Thanks!
#5121 of 6471 Question on Tahoe Tire Sizes. by jerkeejoe
Mar 18, 2005 (7:00 pm)
I have 285 75 16's (stock wheels) on my 1999 Silverado Z71. We also have a 2001 Tahoe LT (2WD) - took a ski vacation to Keystone Colorado (from Houston 2,800 miles round trip) I did not want to drive in snow on the Firestone Wilderness LE tires that came with the Tahoe - since I had less than 3,000 miles on the 285 75 16's I switched the wheels & tires from the Z71 to the Tahoe.
The 285's fit just fine - no rubbing - minimal loss of power - the only issue is the 285's are a true truck tire - load range D - rated to handle 3,300 pounds at 65PSI - Even though I ran 45PSI the ride did suffer a little - but the handling IMO was better. But than anything would be better that Firestone Wilderness LE!

Mar 19, 2005 (10:26 pm)
1999 2dr LT. When I select 4wd and pull away I get a loud grinding noise sounds like gears jumping). I can drive all day in 2wd and all is quiet. I have tested the actuator, that is OK. Before I start striping it all down, has anyone else had this problem?
#5123 of 6471 Important question on dependability
Mar 20, 2005 (8:30 pm)
I am interested in buying a 96,97,or 98 4 door Tahoe LT, it will be my first suv. I have heard that all suv's basically shutdown around 100,000 miles and it can cost a lot of money to fix. i know they dont have great gas mileage but i really like these. I do have money to spend on it so its not like i dont want to put money into it. after taking a ride in on of these i have to get one. so if someone could post something about it i would really appreciate it. i just want to know what to expect, thanks.

I don't know where you heard that but I don't think it's true. Obviously, some don't last as long as others but I've read many reports on these boards of vehicles surviving well above 150,000 miles and a tale or two of some getting over 200,000.

I have a friend that kept his late 90's Tahoe well over 200K miles, with mostly routine maintenance. If the vehicle is well taken care of, it should take care of you, too.
#5126 of 6471 Jumpy steering
Mar 22, 2005 (3:50 am)
1998/99 Tahoe 5.7L vortec, 2dr 4wd LT.
My steering has a peculiar habit of jumping rather than a smooth turning action (mostly on right hand corners).
What is the cause of this and how do I cure it? as I have almost turned over when accelerating hard to overtake.
