Here for your info is the "stretched Tahoe".

I can and do hold vehicle drivers responsible for the fuel economy of the vehicles they are ... enough to be compared fruitfully (pun intended). If I was talking about a Ford F-150 versus the Tahoe you'd have a better point. And if you didn't know that the Suburban is basically a stretched Tahoe, you've been out of the states for awhile. Check out Chevrolet's web site to ...

Nice try at changing the subject. The 07 Av is the virtual twin in drivetrain with the Tahoe, and nearly so in the body (based on Suburban- stretched Tahoe, if you will). So my observations are valid. More importantly, I've included ...

"The Avalanche's interior - its entire body except the bed, in fact - is shared with the Chevrolet Tahoe SUV."
Seems to me than an Avalanche owner has plenty to share with the Tahoe crowd.

just wanted to help you out!! just bought an 01 tahoe and had the same problem.. a 4wheel drive vehicle has to have matching size tires all the way around.. mine had 265x16's on front and 245x16's on back which is fine in 2wheel drive. but have to be matched in 4wheel drive. as all 4wheels are pulling and have different diameter tires. so there working against each other.. this can tear up transfer case and tranny.. so just get good set of matching tires!!!!!!! heard about this problem while reading on the blazer and jimmy problem site... love the tahoe lt.

Thanks steve. I've held off replying to any more posts such as those from bk and others, since they can't seem to understand that all GM did to create the Avalanche was modify the design of a Suburban. The modifications so far (and since the 02 debut of the Avs) have been limited to bodywork and what exactly is over the frame in the rear. The drivetrain and general options are extremely close. It's how GM affords to create and sell such a limited volume vehicle profitably in the first place, and why those of us with an open mind can benefit from reading experiences on either Tahoe / Suburban forums or Avalanche forums (such as the one I'm a member of elsewhere, where Tahoe / burb owners frequently drop by and find solutions to issues they share in common with our Avs).
I've stopped mentioning anything about what kind of vehicle I own. Likewise, if the discussion isn't concerning something I know something about or something shared in common between the vehicle I own and the ones under discussion here, I don't participate.

According to the resource I contacted at the GM Global Operations' Technical Center in Warren, MI there are over 1000 technology, component and systems related product differences. The structural, electrical, mechanical, surface finish and chemical corrosion coatings,etc. are NOTall the same.
steve says, "The Avalanche's interior - its entire body except the bed, in fact - is shared with the Chevrolet Tahoe SUV."
The midgate portion of the Avalanche's body is an obvious major difference.
You might want to avoid CNN and go to the product source...to avoid making such inaccurate statements in the future.

No problem and no harm intended. How do you feel about tendentious reasoning being used to post inaccurate product information on your website? Are you permitting that practice on behalf of your employer? Is your employer in agreement?

I feel that if you have facts, experience and can bring enlightenment to the discussion then, by all means, please do so.
#340 of 762 Bad electrical system
Jan 22, 2007 (11:37 am)
I have a '98 Tahoe. The problem is that when i hit the door locks, sometimes they pop up and sometimes it sounds like they are going to move but nothing happens. When I get in and put it in gear, the automatically lock. But when I turn the truck off, they should unlock. I hear the click as though they will but nothing happens. Also every morning I have to start it with a jump. It will hold the charge all day. After it sets overnight I have a really hard time the next morning. I've replaced the battery and connections. ANY SUGGESTIONS?!?!?!?

Platform sharing would make a good discussion over in Automotive News & Views - we really should get back to maintenance solutions in here.

Seems to me the Tahoe is a mini-Suburban, not a stretched tahoe as the Suburban has been in the GM lineup a lot longer than any Tahoe model.
