Ohhh Tahoes....They are NICE! My hubby was looking into getting one, but when he saw the Avalanche Z71, he fell in love with it. A few weeks ago, we were looking into getting another SUV... I wanted to get the Tahoe...BUT I went with the Trailblazer instead.

Hoping that that specific Tahoe jumps out at ya.

My brother has the older model Tahoe. I guess late 90's. He loves it. That thing has a hell of a lot more room than my Grand Cherokee.

I'm driving one as we speak. (posting via PDA). I really hate this thing. It's a lumbering oaf at speed. This thing corners like a trash truck. Gas mileage sucks. Not really my cup of tea, but then again, my daily driver is a Vette.

I don't think anyone buys one expecting it to handle like a Vette!
