2007 Tahoe

I am purchasing a 2007 Tahoe LTZ in a few weeks and wanted to see if anyone one here has one yet. I have test driven quite a few of them but was wondering if anyone here has had any problems out of theirs.

Thanks in advance,
Jason

My brother has one....hates it. The front cowling under the front bumper is way too large and grinds whenever off road. Also while deer hunting in NV this last weekend, he had an electrical issue cause his battery to drain. Luckily he had a sat phone and could get help.

So overall he does not like the truck. He put the Pro Comp leveling kit in it to get the front end back up to level height, 2 in lift.

Depends how you`re looking to use it. Mall crawler, little league baseball game attending... awesome. Off road? not so much. I test drove a 2005 Tahoe (as well as Wrangler, Tundra, etc just to make sure the D90 was the route I wanted to go) and I was pretty impressed with it on road. I mean, it drove really comfortably. I couldn`t imagine it on anything over than pavement though

The new Tahoe is a great road car. Don't buy it if you plan to go off-road in anything more than a dove field.

I have a 2005 and have had no problems at all, but then it's my daily driver, I wouldn't think of taking it off road, it has a nice tow-haul mode for extra power when pulling our camper or trailering the D. Good power for everyday driving, gets about 400 miles on a full tank for $65.
