2003 Chevrolet Tahoe:
Minor Updates - Building On A Sure Thing, continued
Our only gripe with the Chevrolet Tahoe is with the brakes. With four-wheel, ABS equipped disc brakes, we'd expect the Tahoe to offer slightly better stopping performance. It's not that it doesn't stop well; we just feel it should stop better. 12" ventilated discs on the front and 13" solid discs on the back managed reasonable stopping distances, but the brakes just don't have a strong "bite" like we're used to. Panic stops from higher speeds require a firm foot on the pedal, but that's to be expected when trying to haul 5,050lbs of American sheet metal to a complete stop. If we were to own a Tahoe for a long period of time, a brake pad upgrade would probably be in order, but again, that's just us.

Sooner than later, our time with the Tahoe came to an end, and we found ourselves reluctantly letting it go. We grew used to it sitting in our parking lot and driveways, always ready to take care of our motoring needs - be it a trip to Lowes or a run to Krispy Kreme. We managed to put nearly 5,000 miles on the Tahoe in just about one-month - we used it (and loved it) that much.

If you're in the market for a larger SUV, we'd strongly encourage you to take a look at the 2003 Chevrolet Tahoe. With great financing deals available, and so many good features 'standard' on the Tahoe, it's a can't miss proposition for the prospective buyer. Build quality is great, the ride is perfect, the driving is pleasurable and the experience was nothing but positive - Chevrolet didn't change much on the 2003 Tahoe, but it changed enough to make it as close to ideal as a vehicle can get.
