I own 2008 model, There r some problems. I live at northern side of canada where temp could drop to - 50 degree Cecius in winter.my car wont' start by using remote during winter when temp. drop to -30C ,also most of the winter it won't go in to Auto stop mode, but it work good when tep is above
-10C. I would like to have spare tire on my Tahoe since I am living remote part of the country. I have to drive 300 km on gravel road to get in to Paved road. Now I am relaying on Onstar If some thing goes on road. I cannot really go for off roading with this coz front bumper ground clearance is very low and its poorly made with plastic/fiber specially mounding brackets. Having said all these I still like my hybrid....read morehide

- Nice ride and electronics
- Second row seat does not lock in forward position.
Purchased As New
The vehicle rides and handles well. The electronics are nice to have.
My primary concern with the vehicle is the second row seats do not lock in the forward position. This problem limits the staorage capacity of the vehicle, Also the seats will slam back on children who happen to grab onto the folded set trying to exit the 3rd row seats. My only solution has been to use a rope or bungie tied between the seat and center post handle. Not Something one would expect from a $56,000 vehicle....read morehide

After driving a Suburban for years decided to buy something that would actually fit in the garage. After 2 weeks have nothing but praise for the hybrid Tahoe. Not much of a learning curve on setting up and using bluetooth, Nav system, garage opener and the Onstar service is amazing. I pressed the button on the way home from the dealer and they already knew my name and personalized the system for me. Love how systems mesh with downloads of directions to Nav system and monitering of vehicle including reports to email. I wish the door sill was a little wider so more comfortable to rest elbow while driving. The middle console is good armrest for driver and passanger. The wireless entertainment system for the 2nd seat is awesome.
I wanted auto opening/closing rear door, but not available on Hybrid, however must say the door is easy to open and close with very little effort. The ride is solid with good control, road feel and eats up the bumps. Feels surefooted in the corners and the brakes are 100% better then what I was used to with the Suburbans.
Still learning how to drive to maximize MPG. The Tahoe is teaching me with economy guage and instant readout of MPG and mode (auto off, electric, 4 cyl, 8 cyl) on drivers info system.
All in all I am very pleased with purchase so far. The Hybrid Tahoe seems bulletproof....read morehide

- Large roomy comfortable vehicle with good mileage.
- Batteries in the back seat raise the seats.
Love my new Tahoe. Actually I have the 2008 but they made very little changes to the 2009. In addition you qualify for a hybrid tax credit. Very good in stop and go traffic, under 28 mph you run strictly on electric. This vehicle teaches you to be economical. A guage on the instrument panel shows you the optimum level to get better mileage. More people need to learn to drive with cruise control and use it. Everyone wastes gas by quick starts and quick stops. This vehicle runs so quiet you can forget its on....read morehide
