I oddly did the very same, traded my old RC for a 2000 Tahoe with 61,000 miles.
Now I too, have 78,000 miles on it and having tranny trouble. I thought it would a be a more reliable truck to take my son in vs and on old 82 Dodge. Guess I'm wrong.
I'm worried to drive it other then to work. I had to leave it along the road and walk the other day. The engine will rev and the rpms will go up but the truck wont move or wont shift. I have it in the shop where I work for the 3rd time. I had the tranny flushed last year. I like to keep this truck nice and very good about maintaining it.
THe tranny isn't making noise but it just wont go all time.
What have you all been finding or done for help?
Anything short of driving it until it goes no more and trying to pay for a new tranny or just buy a bicycle?

I had to have my transmission replaced. $3000 with a 3 year warranty. There is a systemic problem with these transmissions and Chevy will not own up to it - unless you get to executive escalations and say you are going to buy a new vehicle from Chevy. They won't admit that there is something wrong, but they will offer you a voucher for a discount on a new Chevy. I told them that this is the last Chevy for me and the rest of my family.

We've had a lot of Chevys in my family and it's common for a fuel pump to go at less than 100K miles. Never let your fuel tank get lower than 1/4 and that seems to keep the problem at bay.

I just purchased a 2007 Chevrolet suburban in June with 72,000 miles on it. 1 month later my transmission went out. They covered it and put in a "rebuilt" transmission...no problems since...knock on wood. A week after I bought it though it felt funny when I would take a right hand turn. I took it in and they said nothing was wrong. I just put new tires on it and I just noticed I can feel the right tire rubbing on something when I turn right. The tire people said my right front tire wore unevenly and the inner tire had steel threads coming out of it. I am currently losing oil somehow and I am sure that is not a good thing. I was never a Chevy person but my boyfriend convinced me to buy it. I think next time I might try something else...very frustrating!
#320 of 413 2007 tranny rebuilt twice in same year
Nov 23, 2011 (3:32 am)
We bought our 2007 Suburban used two years ago. Had always felt like we were rear ended when stopping at lights/stop sign. Mentioned at dealer when vehicle serviced, no answer. Transmission went out in February 2011 in a blizzard two hours from home at 88,000 miles. Less than 100,000 miles so covered under warranty. Still didn't feel like it shifted correctly when we got it back. Transmission went out three weeks ago, 98,000 miles, STILL at dealer three weeks later. Service dept says clearances weren't right on 1st rebuild. Also has been to dealer three times to fix overactive lifter problems on oil system - recalled the 1st time but it just doesn't seem to be fixed. We have never towed anything with it. We have been loyal GM customers, have 2006 GMC Sierra, but don't know what to do. Dealer not offering any solutions but clearly warranty is running out on this troubled vehicle. From reading the previous posts, it appears this is a common problem; any more on information on possible recalls for this vehicle?
#321 of 413 Odd shifting in transmission
Nov 24, 2011 (12:34 pm)
So as you may all know I have been dealing with a shifting issue with my 2005 Tahoe. Well After two trips to a transmission shop who could not find any codes, damage, or problems with my transmission it has once again started to hesitate sometimes from a dead stop as well as not shifting into overdrive or 4th gear. I dont have a clue what to do since there are no warning lights coming on. I was told that even the mass air flow sensor and O2 sensors would still trigger an engine code if they where faulty but I have not seen any service engine light or warning. I am very flustered with this car and wished I had never purchased it.
#322 of 413 Irratic shifting
Dec 01, 2011 (12:55 am)
Well here I am again, the transmission in my tahoe has gotten worse. So the other night with no warning it started reving up when switching gears then is seems like it was trying to find a gear to go into. It goes from 1st to 2nd just fine but when it tries to go into 3rd it revs up and I get an odd spinning sound fron the dashboard on the drivers side and then searches for a gear. Going into 4th just does not happen at all is seems to stay in 3rd and continuously searches for a gear going in and out of 4th and 3rd. Still no warning lights, its shift down just fine. I had to take it back to the transmission shop again today so they can check it for the 4th time. I hope they can figure out whats going on cause this has really irritated my last nerve. I have always kept it in 2wd hi cause I never actually have had the need to put it in 4wd. Anyone with advice please let me know just incase teh shop still cant find anything wrong
#323 of 413 Its confirmed my transmission is damaged

Well got the call back today from the transmission shop and they confirmed my worse fear, the transmission is faulty. I have no 2nd and 4th gears and no overdrive. So now checking around for prices to either get it rebuilt or replaced with a better quality transmission

Thank you but I it does not seem like GM has been able to help anyone with failing transmission issues. My transmission is shot and needs to be replaced so I am just wondering if its best to trade it in for an import SUV or find a better quality transmission and pray it last longer the one it came off the show room floor with.
#325 of 413 water in transmission and lousy customer care
Dec 07, 2011 (12:06 pm)
2004 tahoe has hood design defect funneling water into transmission dipstick . GM knows this but previous Chevy dealer never fixed it .. I've been trying to get them to repair this and fix damaged transmission for weeks . In addition , it is a GM Certified rebuilt transmission since the original trans died shortly after the warranty expired . The GM customer service center is NO help --like talking to the phone company used to be . The customer service person refuses to let me speak to her supervisor !!!! She types the whole time we speak and seems to be reading canned responses instead of talking with me . I find out on the internet that the customer service call center is in Venezuela ! That's what we get for bailing out GM . I've got two Chevy vehicles and was about to buy another but with the miserable customer service , why should I ? Service request # 71-1014887018 .
