RepairPal Expert Overview:

The second row center seat belt routing may make it difficult to position correctly on smaller passengers. If the seat belt rides up to fit around the abdomen, the risk of internal injury is increased in a crash. Dealers will cut the guide loop, remove a portion of the loop, and the remaining sides should be folded over and secured with a retainer. The recall began July 21, 2005.

2005 Chevrolet Tahoe Reviews

I have a 2005 chevy tahoe 120k miles and haven't had very many problems except that recently my fan/ac/defrosters started going full blast and they haven't turned off since. :( Now i have to use pliers to turn off my car and that makes me feel like a ghetto ass loser. I love my car but having to disconnect the battery is a pain.

We purchased this Tahoe in 2005 with 14 miles on it. Since then we have put 1000's into it for bad seals, windshield wiper motor, transmission and many others things that needed replaced. This is by far the worst vehicle I have ever owned. We have put more money in to this peice of junk than it is worth. I will never buy another Chevrolet product ever.

Bought my 2005 in late 2005 with 15K miles...now has over 90K and still on the original front brakes! Third stop light blew but found after market. Water pump went out at 75K. other than that...love this truck!
