The Chevy Tahoe/GMC Yukon twins moved to a more-refined platform for 2000, improving handling, braking, and refinement. A third row of seats allows the Tahoe to seat as many as nine. These SUVs can also tow a heavy trailer, and they offer a smooth and quiet ride. Both available V8s feel strong and are more efficient than the older engines. A smooth-shifting automatic is another plus.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Consumer Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How? Our survey data reveals whether, all things considered, owners would buy the same car again. The answer to that question is what determines our owner-satisfaction rating, which is a powerful piece of intel because it predicts how well a particular model will satisfy other owners.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Owner Satisfaction with:

Driving Experience

Includes acceleration and handling

What Owners Say

"I LOVE the power of a V-8 engine. My Tahoe accelerates quickly from a standing start and always has the power necessary to pass other vehicles. It tows my classic car with no problem and is ready to perform for all tasks that I want it to do. This is why I have kept it for over 17 years and will continue to drive it for my long vacations. There is nothing like a V-8!"

Mark G., VA (2001 Chevrolet Tahoe)

"For an older vehicle it runs well, engine smooth but fuel economy not so good"

Jim C., ON (2001 Chevrolet Tahoe)

"The Tahoe has plenty of power and handles well on regular roads. A little clumsy on winding two lane roads. Great for towing a boat or small trailer."

Lorrie P., CA (2001 Chevrolet Tahoe)

"This is a truck--it doesn't handle like a car. It has sufficient power/acceleration. We use it for towing a travel trailer, and it does this very well. I don't mind truck-like handling, given what we ask of the vehicle."

Scott B., WA (2001 Chevrolet Tahoe)

"Acceleration and handling is good for a big car/truck."

Comfort

Includes seats, climate control, noise, and ride

What Owners Say

"Great ride, low road noise."

Anonymous, OK (2001 Chevrolet Tahoe)

"Has been a good car/truck for 16 years. Very comfortable inside. One problem right now is that the heat gets stuck on high and cannot be turned down or off while driving."

Anonymous, CO (2001 Chevrolet Tahoe)

"This is a very comfortable vehicle--the preference for all road trips for everyone. It is quiet, the seats are very comfortable, and everyone feels good even if on the road for hours."

Scott B., WA (2001 Chevrolet Tahoe)

"The seats are extremely comfortable. You can take long trips and not feel tired. The ride is excellent and noise is minimal."

Value

Did you get what you wanted relative to the price you paid?

What Owners Say

"This SUV has been a reliable vehicle for 17 years. The only major repair was for an oil leak. Everything else has just been basic maintenance. The investment made in 2001 was well worth it."

Anonymous, TX (2001 Chevrolet Tahoe)

"At the time (2001) is was a great buy."
