A Few of the Common Issues/Problems on the 00" to 07" NBS Tahoe's are....the Front Wheel Hub Bearing go Bad, the Blower Motor Resistor's, and the Stepper Motor's in the Dash Cluster's.....Howdy all,
I'm considering the purchase of an '04 Tahoe LT. What are the common problems I should be on the look out for besides ordinary used-car type stuff?
Good point about the steering shaft. When it is bad it will clunk over bumps and while turning. But you can just use that as a bargaining tool also. I think a new shaft is around $80 but there's no point in trying to replace them as the new one will go bad also. It is cheaper and a more permanent fix to put a $.65 Zerk fitting in the shaft and grease it. Same with bad stepper motors. You can have the entire cluster require with new bulbs and motors for $125 or buy a ss version for around $350And i forgot to mention the intermediary steering shaft that might need replacment too, though it's an easy swap.
