The Tahoma is a four-door sedan featured in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, occasionally available as a lowrider.

Description

Design

The Tahoma resembles a 1981-1986 Chevrolet Monte Carlo Sport Coupe (not to be mistaken with the SS or LS Sport Coupes) but has been converted into a 4 door. The 4 door design may have been to simultaneously emulate 80's sedans, but the overall chassis design is much closer to the Monte Carlo.

The Tahoma is tailored to function as a lowrider, making the car the only other four-door vehicle other than the Savanna to be designed as such and may appear on the streets with already built-in hydraulics. As a result, the car can only be modified at Loco Low Co. (see #Modifications).

Performance

Acceleration, handling, speed, and brakes are all highly competent and satisfying. On top of this, the Tahoma is capable of withstanding a good deal of damage, making this vehicle one of the most balanced in San Andreas in terms of performance aspects.

Customization

Modification of the Tahoma can only be performed at Loco Low Co. However, like the Voodoo, the Tahoma's choices of customization is far more limited than most other lowriders, including:

    • Car Color 1 (primary body color): $150
    • Car Color 2 (has no apparent use): $150
  • Wheels
    • Twist: $1,200
    • Wires: $1,560
    • Virtual: $620

Trivia

  • The default radio station in the Tahoma is Playback FM.
  • In the mission House Party there will be two bulletproof and fireproof Tahomas that are locked when the mission is over. One of the Tahoma's can be pushed into CJ's garage. While this Tahoma can be used for the Lowrider Challenge, it is advised not to do so because it will lose its special properties.
