Autumn finally gets her Tahoe!

Autumn has had a thing for Chevrolet Tahoes ever since one of our friends had one up for sale a few years ago. However, she doubted that she'd be comfortable operating a full-sized vehicle. With her current car showing its age, along with a growing family, we've been keeping an eye out on something that would fit her needs. The GMC Acadia seemed like a good option, but she decided on this 2011 Ice Blue Tahoe LT Vortec 5.3L Auto SPI Flex Fuel Iron Block with 76K on the clock and 3 year/30K warranty.

It seats 8 with three rows of seating, has a great towing package, bluetooth, mp3, and a bunch of other bells and whistles. While I would have preferred something with 4WD or even AWD, I think we'll still get around okay on dirt roads and trips out to the river with it. I think the last Chevrolet in my family was my father's 1977 Silverado pickup. We're looking forward to getting years of enjoyment out of this vehicle.

Congrats to you an Autumn on the new member of your family :mrgreen:

I know Autumn will look good in that Tahoe, but I'm not sure how rep will hold up once the trail crowd sees you rollin' on chromed 20s :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

John

We have had a Chevy Tahoe in the family for several years and it has been one of the best family vehicles we have ever had. It has survived the worst that growing and active kids can throw at it, pulling a trailer, and hundreds of "loaner" uses to the new drivers in the family. You will NOT be disappointed!!!

One tip: go easy on the tire slick, especially at OAUSA functions!
