I have been a Subaru owner for some years now due to my long commutes. I will be working from home full time now and have always had my eye on the Tahoe. There are some good used deals here in NH as I am only looking to spend AT MOST $30k. This would be my first ever American car/truck purchase so I need to start off slowly
I just want to get people's idea of something like a 2004 Z71 for around $26,000.
Also, is Chevy REALLY DISCOUNTING the 2007's lately?
#2405 of 3150 2007 Console (Woodgrain upgrade)
Mar 23, 2007 (2:25 pm)
When I was at the local dealer having my tires rotated for the first time (10,000 miles)I picked up the new 2007 Tahoe sales literature and noticed that GM has upgraded the center console cup holder material to match the dash (Wood tone). The unit has two small doors that cover the entire area. I thought it look nice and inquired as to the cost to get the new version. Gulp, to my surprise or shouldn't I have been.. the cost was $700. You can't buy just the cupholder piece, you have to purchase the entire console. Adding in the cost of dealer installation would have been to steep of a price to pay for the upgrade. Has anyone else inquired about this part and what prices were you quoted?

Yeah, "dual layer" is what I meant. I archive movies off a Directv Tivo to a Samsung single layer DVD recorder. I just finished off a spindle of cheap no-name DVD-R's, so I guess I can try using my new TDK's now. If that doesn't work, maybe I can try using my computer's DVD drive. Thanks to everyone for their responses.
#2408 of 3150 service park assist sensor .
Mar 25, 2007 (6:06 am)
Small accident on my YUKON 07’ “rear bumper”. Al sensors were not affected except the first on the right rear. It was not broken but the wire inside was almost damaged; service park assist was on the drive information center (DIC). I fixed the wire but still the same message. How could I know that the sensor is ok or not? Do I have to change all the sensors? Does it need to reprogram? Please help.
The local lousy dealer said maybe I need to change all the rear sensors and might need to change other sensors somewhere inside the car.
Hoping for your kindly assistance

I keep getting the error below. Do you have special access to the gmgoodwrench.com site? I tried logging on to the site but my options for parts were limited.

The upgraded console you are referring to was part of a mid-year upgrade to the Tahoe. The woodgrain console cover is part of the LTZ package. You do not need to buy an entire console. I know because I went through the same process as you are going through. What you need is GM part # 15943546. This part is available through GM, or you can order it online. The best price I found on this item was through gmpartsdirect.com. Type in this part number in the search line. The part that comes up is described as a bezel, which sounds confusing. This is the woodgrain console cover. This part snaps in place in place of the current black console/cupholder unit. Installation takes about 3 mins. The price for this part including shipping was about $110.00 delivered, which is a long way from $800. If you buy one of these on e-bay, make sure that you get one for a Tahoe. If you buy the unit for the Yukon, it will not match as the Yukon woodgrain is darker. Hope this helps

Thanks for the information. Just one question.. the web site doesn't have 2007 model year for the Tahoe listed. How did you locate the part number? If I have to order other parts for the 2007 tahoe from this website what would be the best way to search? When I tried searching for the part number you provided for the 2006 model year (since that's the latest on the site) I came up with "not found". I appreciate your help.

I found the part number on another web site. On the gmpartsdirect.com site, there is a space in the upper left hand corner of the home page to type in part numbers. Simply type in this part number in the space provided and click on go. Do not enter any model year info. In order to purchase other parts through this site, I believe you would either need to know the part number or email them and tell them what you are looking for. Hope this helps

Being a Tahoe and Subaru owner, I'd say wait until you can afford a 2007 (new or used). I'd guess some are coming off lease or showing up on lots maybe this fall. The `07 models are just way better than the older models. The pre `07 models drive and feel way more like a truck and nothing like a Subaru.
I'd say $26k for a `04 is too high. One internet search showed prices in the $22k range in the Minneaoplis area. We paid a little more than that when we bought out 2003 Tahoe used in fall of 2003 (1 year old truck).
Consider a Saturn Outlook or GMC Acadia? Similar in size to the Tahoe, but much more car like in driving style. Base models start under $30k
