problem #3

Tahoe 4WD

  • miles
I have owned my Tahoe for almost 3 years, and I have had the front hubs/wheel bearings replaced 3 times. Since they were a one piece assembly, they were rather expensive. I have put almost 70000 miles on it since I have owned it, and never had any other problems with this truck.
