Chevrolet Tahoe, as a full-size SUV, has been produced by General Motors' Chevrolet Division since 1995. In fact, the first Chevrolet Tahoe introduced in 1995 was the replacement of Chevrolet K5 Blazer. It has been praised as one of the best of its class by Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

When the Chevrolet Tahoe got designed and released in late 2005 as a 2007, the third-generation Chevrolet Tahoe (2007-2014) debuted officially.

As a SUV, Chevrolet Tahoe is often faced with all kinds of harsh driving road conditions. In this way, some problems would come for it spontaneously. Here we collected two most common ones happened to it for reference to Chevrolet Tahoe owners:
First, poor fuel economy. This is the most complained problem by Chevrolet Tahoe owners. They said the vehicle was consuming more oil than usual. And the side compacts often include rough operated engine hesitant in acceleration, in rough idle or make whining noises. In fact, once the Check Engine Light comes on and any above signs appear on your Tahoe, you are supposed to check the spark plug, piston ring, speedometer, oxygen sensor or fuel pump to solve this problem completely.
Second, suspension system goes wrong. Suspension is the key to keep comfortable driving, however, Chevrolet Tahoe drivers found it is not a pleasure. Because excessive vibrations while driving and swerving when braking would put them in danger sometimes. What's more, the vehicle starts to bottom out, which caused severe damage to the front tires and brakes. If your Tahoe also gives out grinding noises while turning, you are advised to have the shock absorber, wheel bearing and coil spring insulator checked carefully.
