We decided to trade 2007 Chevy Suburban off on a new 2011 Chevy Suburban. Cynthia in GM customer service looked into service history, agreed there was a problem, and was able to get us a GM Owner Loyalty Certificate which helped us get into a new vehicle. She also followed up with the dealer to try to get us a better loaner vehicle or speed up the transmission work. She was excellent to work with and went above and beyond to see that we were satisfied but we were sorry it had to come to this. Hopefully, this will eliminate all of our problems.

I have a 01 Z71 Tahoe transmission that slips making a hard left turn, or a wide sweeping left turn. Sometimes after the left turn it slips just a little after I am straight. I was told that the screen may have dropped down in the pan. I checked that, and everything seems to be OK.

UPDATE!! I took my 2006 Tahoe to Dealer at the advise of my friend's local repair shop. They ran Diagnostic. Replaced my encoder motor (actuator).
Cost = $700.00.
I could have done it but I would not have been able to update software.
No problems so far...I wonder if they updated software?
#342 of 422 Cheap quality transmission
Jan 10, 2012 (9:35 am)
So at about 92k miles I coughed up the $2670 for a complete transmission rebuild with heavy duty upgrades. It sucks that the repair shop knew these transmissions are crap. In fact the shop manager who also has a Tahoe says "the engines are great and will run for ever if you maintain it, yet transmission are CRAP!" (crap was not the word he used) With a statement like that how can you not trust a guy who feels your pain? Well its fixed and now under warranty so now I have to work on getting my lift gate unstuck from the lock position and see whats up with my keyless entry remote not unlocking my doors but will lock them. This will be the last GM product I ever buy TRUST ME!!!!

While you are at it, replace your u-joints on the front driveshaft. If that shaft has a slight vibration due to worn u-joints you will be rebuilding your transfer case as well, or at least replacing the frt main bearing and seal.
