The power fold mirrors can be added. You can find a pair for about 150. Then add a new window switch for 50 bucks and programming for 50. Sell the old mirrors and switch on ebay.

If you're paying cash and can afford to push it off in the river if it sucks, buy the 2015.

re: Looking at buying a Tahoe


I'll be the first to admit that Tahoes look good as frick. Don't frick it up by putting Browning sticker or some dumb shite on the window, but seriously -- the look good.


I'd just have a hard time dropping that kind of money and not getting a BMW. New 4 series coming out soon would be sick.

re: Looking at buying a Tahoe


Why would someone in the market for a big SUV want to buy a BMW coupe?

I know the '15 GMC LT version is $54k + tax out the door in NOLA. Possibly this will give some guidance to the OP.

re: Looking at buying a Tahoe


I'll preface this by saying that I drive an '07 Yukon and there is no fricking way I would pay $60k+ for a GM SUV. But you'd be a fool to opt for the old body style to save $5k. Technologically they are miles apart. My Yukon feels ancient inside compared to the 2015 Tahoe I've ridden in. And since you're a man it also has way more horsepower and better gas mileage. The depreciation on either one is absolutely terrible - with the 2014 it's bad because you're buying a 7 year old design at new-car prices; with the 2015 you're buying the first model year right when it comes out, so you're not getting the $10k+ off sticker discount that you could get a year from now.

re: Looking at buying a Tahoe


If you travel a lot , have younger kids and are a taxi service for them and their friends I suggest going with a suburban.

We do a lot of traveling due to sports and there is virtually no room for luggage behind the third row seating.

Sure fuel milage sucks but I decided comfort was more of a priority than fuel milage.

Also keep in mind that Tahoes have On-Star which can provide turn by turn directions and a navigation system will not be required.

I would if it was a Cadillac CTS-V with a stick.

re: Looking at buying a Tahoe


We purchased a new '10 Tahoe LTZ 4x4 and absolutely loved it. Sticker on it was 57 and we were out the door at 53. The prices for the '15s are crazy,but Id probably end up dropping that kind of change again. The 3rd row seating sucks arse for an adult, thats why 95% of the time, we had the seats taken out and used all the cargo space. I think the new models have the built in 3rd row which is easier to deal with. Im not a huge fan of the new body style, but I think over time it will grow on me

re: Looking at buying a Tahoe


When i bought mine, i bought it with every option but leather. Saved 5k. then had the dealership install the same exact leather for 1200.00. Looked exactly as if i'd bought it that way. The mark up on that is stupid.

There is no way you got every available option except leather. 100% not possible. They won't even let you custom order like that.

So you have navigation? Power lift gate? Sunroof? Power front seats? Bluetooth? Power running boards? Factory rear entertainment? Power folding mirrors? Back-up camera? 20" rims?

He must be old. Old people think they have a loaded out vehicle if it has power windows, locks, and a cd player.

That's not loaded out? Even came with a remote to unlock/ lock the doors from the outside.
