    I had a 2004 Tahoe. I had a funky speedometer which would peg back and forth. The instrument cluster was replaced (with the odometer properly programmed) under my extended warranty. I learned afterwards that there had been a class action lawsuit covering this problem as it was very common and GM did not initiate a recall. Many of my friends also had these problems and got theirs replaced.
    Good Luck and safe travels

    After all 5,000 gallons less is a 5,000 gallon SAVINGS or about a $11,250 savings at today's price of $2.25/gallon for fuel!

    Damn that's a LOT O MONEY!
    So you are saying the lifetime average of that truck is 14.5 mpg, it never gets driven in the city, goes up hills or tows anything? I would love to average 14.5 with our truck.
