You guys have threads about blue smoke, burning oil, problems with driving in sand. Uconnect not working. Radios not remembering stations. Etc
What I am looking for is an opinion and experiences so that I can look for common problems that I could avoid in my build.

These cars have 2 reputations one good and one bad.
I have a 2012.

It has 12000 miles and is a fully loaded Summit with the V8.

If there was something to break/die/malfunction in a vehicle, this has all the doodads that would fail.

To date I have had zero issues with the vehicle except for the SERV 4WD problem when I was in SAND mode in Joshua Tree (yes this thing does go offroad and it is used for that purpose just like my Wrangler)

It did burn a quart of oil between 7000 and 12000 miles (I use nothing but synthetic and service all our vehicles myself)

I've had all the outstanding TSB's done to the vehicle.

The air suspension has never given me a problem.

I did put a Mopar CAI on it and I tossed the crappy Michelin tires within the first couple thousand miles of ownership.

Happy owner here.

Hope that helps.

The Tahoe is a large suv versus the WK2 which is a midsize suv. I went from an 2wd '08 Silvy with 5.3 v8 extended cab and could not fit it in my 3 car garage (too long) so it had to be parked outside in the driveway (pain in the butt). When the lease expired I got rid of it and bought an 4wd '07 diesel WK. Fuel mileage aside (I get 26 in the diesel but got at best 19mpg in the Silvy) it is smaller footprint (about the same dimensions as my '08 WRX) and fits in the garage easily and leaves room for storage as well..
