The Tahoe is a large vehicle and you won't forget it while driving. The 2007 redesign brought improved fit and finish for the interior and better brake pedal feel, but didn't set any new standards among large SUVs. Handling is cumbersome, stopping distances are long and fuel economy, though improved, is poor. However, the highway ride is comfortable.

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.

Anonymous, AB (2009 Chevrolet Tahoe)

"This car has a big V8 engine, and if you hit the gas hard, it jumps surprisingly fast! It is easy to handle, and has a nice smooth ride."

Includes seats, climate control, noise, and ride

What Owners Say

"Seats are comfortable, ride is quite smooth for a truck, it's a bit noisy inside"

Anonymous, MD (2009 Chevrolet Tahoe)

"Very comfortable seats for long trips or local driving. Seat heaters work very well and quickly. I love the three stage heat adjustment. My wife keeps hers on High and I am usually on Low."

John N., WI (2009 Chevrolet Tahoe)

"The third-row seats are not usable by older children or adults. They are uncomfortable and provide no room for your legs. My knees touch my xxxxx in these seats. We just removed the seats and put them in storage so now have seating for five. Did not expect that when we bought the car."
