The Tahoe's highlights are its responsive powertrain, quiet cabin, and good low-speed ride. But fit and finish are unimpressive, the third-row seat is very tight and handling is cumbersome. Electronic stability control (ESC) was made standard with this version in 2005.

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

"It' fine. Not zippy but reliable. We pull a 24' travel trailer with it fine, although we are slow going up hills."

Candice G., OR (2006 Chevrolet Tahoe)

"When accelerating it's a very smooth transition. There's no "jerkiness" when driving. You can get up to 75 before you know it and it doesn't feel you're going that fast."

Anonymous, TX (2006 Chevrolet Tahoe)

"Very smooth"

Anonymous, CA (2006 Chevrolet Tahoe)

Comfort

Includes seats, climate control, noise, and ride

What Owners Say

"Seats are built for a large male so are not very comfortable for females (I'm 5'7"). Seat belts not comfortable. It rides like a truck, which is what it is. A little noisy."

Candice G., OR (2006 Chevrolet Tahoe)

"The leather seats and contoured interior makes you feel like you're slipping into your favorite chair in very comfortable surroundings"

Anonymous, TX (2006 Chevrolet Tahoe)

Percentage of owners who would definitely purchase that same vehicle again. Owner-satisfaction Ratings are determined by the percentage of those who answered "definitely yes" to the question asked by the Consumer Reports Annual Auto Survey "Considering all factors (price, performance, reliability, comfort, enjoyment, etc.), would you get this car if you had to do it all over again?". If we don’t have sufficient data, a similar model might be used to form the owner-satisfaction score.
