    Hello everyone. Glad I found this forum.

    I just bought my first Tahoe. It's a 1999 and only has 37,000 miles. It's in virtual showroom condition, no scratches on the outside and no stains or wear on the inside. The previous, and only other, owners were an elderly couple that bought it 20 years ago to travel in. They kept meticulous records--I have receipts from every oil change they ever had done: 4 the first year, 4 the second, 3 the third, 2 the fourth, and none others until their nephew changed the oil and put on new tires last month to get it ready to sell.

    It looks great, but I worry that a twenty-year-old Tahoe may have some hidden problems and be in need of some intense TLC. So, I'd appreciate any suggestions on maintenance items that I should perform right away or any known issues that I should be prepared for.

    I'm really only a Youtube mechanic, so I look forward to learning a lot from everyone here.

    Dan

    welcome, nice find, post up some pics
    my main concern would be getting fluids flushed, coolant, brake fluid, power steering, etc, check over vacuum lines for deterioration, some things may not rear there head until you go to use them after sitting for so long.
