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 415 03 tahoe transmission problems
Apr 13, 2011 (7:27 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!!!!!!!

I have a 2004 Tahoe that I bought at 69,000 miles from a dealer and as soon as it hit the 70,000 mi. mark, the transmission needed to be replaced. I love my vehicle but if I knew that I would end up with issues like this so soon into owning the car, I would not have purchased it. This is my second Chevy and I never experienced a problem with my first one... I just needed a larger vehicle after expanding my family. Any help or suggestions are appreciated. I really cannot afford to fork out hundreds let alone thousands to replace the transmission.
#254 of 415 2000 Chevy Tahoe - 74K Miles

Reading the forum I see I am not alone. I'm taking my Tahoe in for repair today. It appears that my transmission has had it. It has always (intermittently) felt like someone hit me from the back when I start off at a traffic light. I've reported it during the warranty, but always came back "no trouble found". I can't believe that Chevrolet built a transmission that will last less than 100K - insane. I traded in my Dodge Ramcharger (1987) back in 2000 for this vehicle and it had 180K on it at the time with no transmission problems. I have no idea how much this will cost but I'm very disappointed in Chevrolets at this point. When I get it back I guess it's time to look into getting another vehicle - perhaps a Kia this time, but just not a Chevy.
