Anyone here own a 07-08 chevrolet tahoe?? My question is "How is it" ? Im thinking about trading in my 07 honda civic si for one. I already have an 2000 si. I need something with some room and to haul my bike.

those trucks are great! but do you need something that big? remember those trucks drink gas like a mothefugga! if i was you i would rather get something smaller like a tacoma or a frontier .

It's not gonna be my daily driver, I'll still have my other Si. Mainly for traveling, my buddies, family, and pulling that bike and everyone's comfortable.

I have a '07 Yukon. Not bad. It is the 5.3. GMC come with limited slip Tahoe is extra. It will get 19-20 mpg on the highway at 70 mph. Averages around 15. Mine has the second row buckets.

For a 5,000 pound + vehicle it handles pretty well, brakes good, fit and finish good.

Rack and pinion steering, fourwheel disc brakes, rear sway bar. The civilian model is electronically limited to about 112, I think. The tested the police interceptor Tahoe with the same engine and I think it did 148.

I priced one yesterday, at our local chevrolet dealership. He didnt have the color i want, or the price i was looking for. They wanted $38,000 for the lowest model. Told them no thanks plus i'm trading in my 07 Si.

the tahoes are nice, but you should check out the nissan armada. i've got one, love it. i've driven the tahoe/yukon and am really glad we got the mada. got the 5.6 v8, lot more power than the gm. also, i have a 5-speed auto as opposed to the same 4-speed auto gm has been using for 30 years. and the mada has independent rear suspension, so it rides great, handles great. check one out. i got mine with 19k on it for $26k. the 08 models have some pretty hefty rebates on em right now; a guy on the armada forum picked up an 08 se for like 34 otd.
