Last time I posted we had about 12,000 miles on the '08 Z71 Tahoe and now we've doubled that! This truck still drives like a dream. My wife and I have loaded up the Grandkids and gone to Corpus Christi (we live in San Antonio) for the weekend, took a trip to Coushatta, MS, then north and west through north Texas and then into northern Oklahoma and then back to San Antonio, about 1,100 miles. We also went to Biloxi, MS this summer for a little over a week. Didn't have one single bit of trouble with the Tahoe. The seats are still nice and comfortable and we're finding just that extra little bit of adjustments that make them perfect. Now, I've recently developed some increased noise levels which were the results of incorrect front-end alignment that caused the tires to cup badly. Fortunately, the dealer recognized this as their problem and replaced all four tires at no cost to me. Now the Tahoe is running just as quietly as the day I bought it. Seems like the paint is still holding up just fine. I do have it in a car wash about once a week or as needed. I did have a slight encounter with a parking garage wall. I kind of scraped the rear passenger side wheel molding. The Z71 has these over all four wheels and I guess I got a little too close to the wall. Of course my Wife had to be in the truck at the time and just happened to tell me I was getting too close but by then I'd already done some damage. I could probably just replace that part and it would be good as new but that particular part costs $200+ so I haven't done it just yet. Also, I don't discuss this with my Wife!
