Your issue with the traction control/stabilitrak light is a common issue. For some reason GM will not admit or can't figure out what the problem is. It is almost certainly the Mass Air Flow Sensor, commonly know as the MAF sensor. Take it to a NON-dealer (because the dealer rates for this simple replacement are OUTRAGEOUS) and have the sensor replaced. The part should be about 100.00 dollars and it is about a ten minute job. The sensor is the black barrel with a wire harness attached to it at the end of you air cleaner box. I went round and round with GM dealers on this with them keeping my vehicle for a total of over two weeks and then did the research and replaced the part myself. That was ore than two years ago without a repeat of the previously three year recurring issue.

I have a 2013 LT Tahoe. I'm experiencing similar problems with my SUV. I get the same response. I have 2700 miles on my truck. Sometimes I experience a erratic surge in low gears. Also the truck seems sluggish when it decelerates and I attempt to accelerate with light pressure on the gas pedal. Especially going uphill.

Please contact us via email at socialmediagm.com (include your name and contact information, the last 8 digits of your VIN and mileage, and a summary of the situation).

It sounds like this no no it sounds like this or this or maybe. GM SUCKS. My tahoe 2004 on my 4th transmission 103K miles I see the same thing over and over from there customer service go to socialmedia and tell us about your problem. Six times I email them back in 08 never heard from them THEY SUCK. just bought another Toyota love it. Looked at a chevy equinox before that 4.9% financing and they would'nt buge on price. Toyota 1.9% and they came down $ 2800. plus went up $1500 on my trade in. GM does not give a s#t about anything but profits. They don't care if your on the side of the road with your young children with your 4th break down we are so sorry this has happend to you. Only reason I am ranting is I just heard the us gov just sold the last of the gm stock for a loss we the people will never see our money returned. Unless GM is going to give me a new Tahoe or even if they were to help me buy one with better pricing and financing I will be repl;acing my Tahoe with a Toyota or even a can you belive it a FORD.

I'm sorry that your emails from 2008 went unanswered ("Six times I email them back in 08"). Have you tried more recently? Were all of these transmission replacements done with your GM dealership? We can be reached at socialmediagm.com if you would like for us to check into this further.

I got an explanation from my service guy. He says it is the new 6 speed transmission GM put in the Tahoes. Nothing they can do about it, but he is hearing other complaints. The other "thing" I was feeling is the engine dropping into the 4 cylinder mode. I'm okay with that since I at least know what is happening. Guess we are going to have to live with the new trannies, but I will sure consider something else next time. Hey GM, my son graduates from college this year, and we thought about buying him a new vehicle since he has been driving the same one since 10th grade. Guess what, it won't be a Tahoe!

#412 of 413 2007 Tahoe needs new transmission
Mar 22, 2013 (4:24 pm)
I have 117k miles on my Tahoe And have never had any problems with my truck. I love it actually and keep it well maintained. Today the transmission blew, was really hoping to drive this truck to at least 200k miles! It's going to cost over 3.3k bucks plus another 400 to replace front and rear differentials....wondering if its worth it? Will I continue to have issues? After reading this blog I do feel lucky to have made it to 117k miles at least.

Hey all - I drove my 03 Tahoe up to 78k (we towed a trailer often) and read about all these transmission issues and decided after feeling a couple hesitations out of 1st gear several times to "beef up" my tranny. That was March 2012 and this the new "heavy duty" tranny is awesome. Same casing just all new "innards". What a difference. It does cost a bit ($2300) but I now have a reliable tranny with a lifetime warranty (transferable) and a peace of mind on the road. Research a good transmission shop and go talk to them. They know how to rebuild these lousy OEM trannys. I'm in Olympia WA and used Thurston County Transmission after several recommendations.
