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.

I just bought a 2000 tahoe with 235000km on it and now the tranny won't shift by itself. If i shift it myself it works but no overdrive. Does anybody have any suggestions what it could be Any help would be great thanks

I was coasting down a mountain about 55 MPH when my transmission went out. Then I tried to speed up on a level road and all I saw was the RPMS go up. Now the transmission wonít select any gear even in Park it will roll forward. I checked the shift linkage outside and inside the transmission and everything seem to be working normally. I looked at the level of the fluid before and after engine start and it does not change. (Possible bad pump). Is there anything else I should be checking for before a transmission rebuild? Also I think I can get a 2002 transmission cheap but I donít know if they are interchangeable

Look into the Transfer case sensor. Use youtube and search transfer case sensor. Google that as well. Cost to replace on 2006 4WD Tahoe was $700.

With all the same issues on the Tahoe and Yukon transmissions I suspect that GM is looking at a Class Action Law Suit once the general public starts adding it all up. My new transmission (about a year old) is starting to do the same thing that the original one did. I've been to the dealer twice and its a "not trouble found" answer each time. I would think that GM would start putting it all together and find a real fix for the problems with these transmissions. Should a transmission only last about 80K miles? It shouldn't matter how old the vehicle is, the mileage is the key .

Transfer case sensor? The transfer case was getting lock on 4 LOW sporadically after some heavy rain I assumed it was the electrical connector taking in water. Thanks Iíll check it and get back with the results.
I can get a 2002 used trani for about 300.00 but I donít know if it is interchangeable

My husband and I purchased a 2007 Suburban in December of last year. We have four children and have a very tight budget so we decided to buy a used vehicle believing in the Chevrolet reputation. The vehicle had 72000 miles on it when we brought it home and immediately noticed the oil consumption was about a quart every 3000 miles. Not thinking it was a bid deal from what the dealerships were telling us we went with it because we loved the vehicle. Now we have 83000 miles on the vehicle and burn a quart and a half every 3000 miles. That's when I started researching the vehicle only to find I am one of many. Our local chevy dealership won't start an oil consumption test unless we have our oil changed there, the problem with that is we get free oil changes from the dealership we bought the car from. We can't afford to trade this in without being upside down, can somebody please help me with what I should do next.
