- Great fuel economy, Love the voice recognition feature to control most of the systems in the Tahoe.
- Not to fond of the window decals.
We've had our Tahoe Hybrid 4WD for about 2 days now. We drove just a little over 100 miles the first day combined city and highway driving on only 2.5 gallons of gas. We find that even at cruising speed, on the highway, it stays in hybrid mode only switching to full engine mode on inclines which require a boost in power. The 6.0 liter V8 allows the active fuel management system to keep the Tahoe in four cylinder mode most of the time but, when you need the power it has great pick up. The amenities are great, love the heated seats and mirrors, the navigation is decent, and the entertainment center is great. Just for kicks we watched a two hour movie sitting in our lane with the Tahoe on and with the auto stop mode we only used 0.25 gallons of fuel as, the engine only kicks on to charge the batteries during this mode. The manual says not to leave the key turned to the accessory position longer than 30 minutes so as not to run the batteries down.
