New vehicle possiblities?
I'm gonna go have a look at this ole tahoe for me. Whatcha think? I need to sell TB and down size a little bit the daughter and wife need some wheels so I thought I'd go look at this and I picked up a 98 Grand AM for the girls to boogie around town in.
I don't need such a fancy new truck for me. I like tinkering anyway

well if it has 214km thats like 132,000 miles and my suburbans have 187,000 and 224,000 on the 5.7's. Although it is 15 years old I'm not sure. I would find out if it has a new transmission because I think at around 125,000 we put a new one in the surburban. Funny story about a tahoe like that. A buddy of mine works for the FBI and he purchased a green one at auction that we called the "murdermobile" because a drug dealer had been killed in the front seat. He never told his wife about it and ended up selling it before she ever found out. Anyways im on the fence, 3800 seems kind of steep to me...

I'd have to agree. Even though it's considered low mileage it's kind of a non issue since it's over 100k. I's say knock an even $1000 off, and you should make the deal. Otherwise you need to nit-pick this vehicle apart for $3800.00
Trans is a good point. I had mine rebuild at 197,000. Odds are the trans is in need of rebuild no matter what, and a good rebuild alone will cost you that $1000.00 bare minimum.Patrick

I agree also!
Good buy at $2800.00, unless you are a mechanic I would have one do a good once over. With that kind of milage you could be dealing with all kinds of problems. On the bright side, it looks good in the pic's
