New Tahoe Owner Reports

Recommended Posts

Have my beady little eyes on a 2013 Tahoe. Need some quick comments from folks who own recent vintage Tahoes. Had one ten years ago and it was a great little truck.

What do you guys think?

Changed my mind. I ain't buyin' any car that the HSO guys don't even comment on! Ha Ha Ha.

Going back to my 1963 Landrover. I got used to just washing it out, inside and out, with a hose.

Thank you.

Have a 2012 in the family (not mine) but it is very nice and so far trouble free. I loved my Tahoes (had 3) with very good luck before buying my Avalanche which has been great as well.

Just a heads up, but I believe that the current body style is about to be replaced. I know the new GMC Sierra is getting a facelift for 2014. Generally the Tahoes/Yukons are right behind the Sierras/Silverados for body style changes. Just food for thought, if it's something that matters to you.

FYI. Went back to dealer. Told him my buddies on HSO weren't even interested enough to comment on the Tahoe.

He took another $2-grand off. So I bought it. I now have 54 miles on it and nothing has gone wrong so far.!

Thanks fellas HaHa Ha!

SUV's are a year behind the SUV's, which would make them 2015's.

Congrats on the new truck! Generally they are well liked and seem fairly reliable.

Ufatz that because most of us HSO'ers aren't striking it rich like those getting new vehicles! Heck, I am looking out the window at my 98 k1500 as I type wink

(and yes that was a wink)

Enjoy the truck, they sure look nice.

Yeah? Well my main car is a 1987 M-Brnz 560SEL. So I know about OLD cars too. LOL.

For what its worth fellas, have spent the whole day driving and playing with this car and it is a VERY nice rig. Looked closely at similars and the Tahoe (in my opinion) beats 'em all out.

But as you may have noticed, one must approach the sales guy with a rather large bag of gold.

I tried charm and lotsa smiles. It got me a cup of coffee.

Just a cup of coffee? When I sold Yukons and Escalades, we usually gave you a cookie to help with the pain of writing those rather large checks.

After driving a Suburban for a long time I would have a hard time going with anything else. However I couldn't get myself to pay the big $$ for a new one I would cherry pick another used one.

Congrats on the new ride. cool

You asked for thoughts on a new Tahoe and I don't have any. Like was mentioned earlier, can't afford to think that new. We've had a 2004 for about 5 1/2 years though and have been happy with it. 175,000 miles now; we bought it with 45,000.

They've always been nice so I don't think you'll have any buyer's remorse.

    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
    • We had no problems but only brought 10 extra gallons over.  We fished 5 days, pretty much running wherever we wanted and ended with 7 gallons remaining in the boat.  So, we burned 30 gallons of fuel in a 1785 Lund with 90 hp Mercury 4 stroke.   I thought that was pretty good!
    • Seems to me that we are missing an entire page from this thread that was here yesterday.... what gives?
