Jalopnik ReviewsAll of our test drives in one convenient place.

Why you should buy this car: The Tahoe looks sharp, drives plush and coddles (five passengers) wonderfully. It ll tow a boat, ford a stream, plug some mud and save GM. Maybe.

Why you shouldn t buy this car: It s not a car. We re talking eleven miles per gallon, real world. Given the plethora of equally capable, more spacious alternatives, that s just plain unconscionable.
