I have a Chevy Tahoe 2004 and I had to replace my transmission when it had a little over 50K on it.. Very disappointing, called GM to complain and of course all they could say was oh it isn't under warranty and there is nothing we can do. Now 3 years later, I am dealing with transmission problems again! First they replaced the 1 and 2 shift solenoids and now it is throwing a P0894 code which means transmission slipping. I will honestly say that I have lost faith in Chevrolet and that my next vehicle WILL NOT be a chevrolet. Many of my friends and familiy that have had Chevrolets have had similiar transmission issues. I bought this vehicle because we are a family of 5 and it sad that I get nervous driving my children around in this vehicle because I am worried that I may break down on the side of the road!! Thanks Chevy!

Have you spoke with Customer Assistance? Has your dealer consulted Technical Assistance? If you would please email me with more details and more information I would be happy to look into this.

I called customer service back when the transmission went out the first time and the response I was given was that mine was not under warranty and if I buy a new Chevrolet they come with a 100,000 mile warranty. I told GM at that time that I was very dissatisfied with that answer and that is was ridiculous that I am having to replace a transmission with only 50,000 miles on the vehicle. I was not offered any assistance or advice or anything. Now we are dealing with the transmission yet again... The check engine light comes on when the vehicle has gotten warmed up, probably a 30-40 mile trip would do it. The transmission starts shifting hard and feels sluggish. I am at the end of my rope after spending another $400 and it still isn't fixed....

You stated you contact GM, did you contact GM Customer Assistance? Do you currently have a case set up? If so, could you please send me the case number in an email? I would like to look further into the situation.

I have a 2007 Tahoe with 80000 miles on it. I have had both front wheel bearings replaced because they failed. The last one yesterday. Luckily they covered it under warranty. About the tranny though, what is recommended for changing/flushing transmission?

I apologize for the issues you are having with your vehicle. I would like to set up a case with GM Customer Service. I would like to get more specific information from you regarding this issue. In order to do some further research, it would be very helpful to have the VIN, current mileage, full name, address and best contact number for our records sent to me in an email. What dealership are you currently working with? Any assistance you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

I would recommend speaking with your local dealer. This information is also found in your owners manual page 556. For normal service it is changed at 100,000 miles. For sever service it is changed at 50,000, 100,000, 150,000. If you need have any other questions feel free to email me.

#251 of 422 03 tahoe transmission problems
Apr 13, 2011 (6:27 pm)
I have a 03 Tahoe that I have just driven on weekends, and always serviced, garaged etc.
The transmission went out on it at 80,000 miles. My brothers went out at 70,000 miles, and GM paid for half of a new one, since the age was out of warranty. So I contacted GM, and they gave me a case number. I was told if I took it to a dealer and paid to have the tranny taken out they would pay for a new one if in fact a part had not held up. We confirmed this a couple of times. Then I went into Lee Johnson Chevrolet and asked their service dept., and said I was worried I would pay to have it taken out [$850.00] and then they would find some excuse not to replace it. The service man said "oh, they'll pay for it". Well guess what, as soon as they got it out, and confirmed it was a bad part, they said they wouldn't pay for it. But Lee Johnson said they would cut me a deal on a rebuild for $3,500.00. All along I have told everyone it is a "03, in like new condition. So now it sits in Lee Johnsons parking lot. This is a bunch of b.s., I have owned chevys since 1976 and I expect to be treated as such!.

We bought our Tahoe with 50k miles. It shifted funny from first to second. We did regular maintenance on it.. Changed fluids when needed. We made four trips to Texas from Florida,and monthly trips from Dallas to Houston for three years. After the 3rd trip from Fl. i put a Hayden trans. cooler with a fan, and changed fluids when needed. Ran flawless! Once you have driven over 50 to 60k and under 45 mph. with more than 3 people i put it in 3rd gear. Just to keep it from shifting in and out of 4 th. and 3 rd. It is noted in owners manuel....... just not in those exact words.... Your vehicle talks to you when it is straining just like your back.......CHEVY FOR LIFE!!!!!!!
