Well, GM Customer Assistance has agreed to pay 30% of the repair cost, plus 5 days of the rental car. This will save me a total of $1,500, so I'm pleased.
Although I was hoping for more, this will do for now given the fact that I am out of warranty. I'm anxious to see if a class action case is brought against GM regarding these 4L60E transmissions.

I bought my 2007 suburban last June and I have already had to have the heads plained because of a manufactures defect 3 months ago and now on the way home from work last week it was like I had run something over and then the transmission would not work in drive. I have to put it in 2nd and then start going to shift it up to drive. I had it looked at and the repairman told me that I need a rebuild. I should have kept the Ford truck that I traded for this thing. All I have done is put money into this and havn't even been able to enjoy the vehicle. Anyone have the same problem with the transmission and does it need rebuilt??????? UGH!!!

#364 of 413 '02 Tahoe Transfer Case/Actuator Problems
Jul 20, 2012 (2:43 pm)
I recently took an impromptu beach trip with my 100,000 miles + Chevy Tahoe and got stuck in 4 Lo. I took the car to a mechanic and they told me my Transfer Case Motor was shot so I needed to replace it. After many hours of them trying to put the motor on they decided that the transfer case itself was broken which will not allow the actuator to fit correctly. They now say it will cost $1650 to fix the transfer case. Does this sound fishy to anyone? Is there no way to manually shift back to 2WD and save myself $$$? Any help is much appreciated.

#367 of 413 2004 Tahoe Transmission /Differential
Jul 31, 2012 (7:58 am)
In Feb. 2012 bought this Tahoe from a dealer. 120,000 miles. Have put less than 3,000 miles on it. Transmission went out, cost $3,000.00 + a $260.00 sensor. Towing costs, $400.00. Dealer called last night and said the transmission is fixed but the front differential needs to be replaced, or it will work the transmission too hard and it will break again, Cost, another $2,000.00. UGH! Is this a common Tahoe issue?

I cant say for sure its a common issue but I do know I have seen many reports on here saying folks have replaced the tranny several times before they even hit 100k miles. I have not heard anyone having issues with their differential and I am knocking on wood right now that it will not be my next issue with this damn SUV.

They could sure use a lesson from Ranger Boats. I hit a pothole in my subdivision last year while pulling my Ranger out. The pothole broke both welds on axle and it rotated up to where tires were rubbing on fiberglass fender. Long story short, 3 yr warranty had expired the YEAR before. I sent them pictures of the hole, my tire, fender and axle. Out of good will and standing behind their product they send me a brand new axle and two new tires. So, if you are looking for a bass boat, Ranger will definitely stand behind their products.
MY 07 Tahoe's transmission just went out with a little over 59k miles, still under the powertrain 100k warranty but time ran out last sept. Guess what, after a lot of wrangling they split the bill with me 60-40 which was appreciated, but for one of their top of the line vehicles to have tranny probs with less than 60k miles doesn't bode well for this vehicle and from what I am seeing a lot of other Tahoe owners are or have had the same problem.
