Chevrolet Tahoe, Transmission, SUV

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.

Need a little more info. Did this 2007 Chevy Suburban come with a warranty from the dealership? If so how many miles does it cover you for? Did you report any oil concerns over the past 11,000 miles to the dealer you purchased from? Most IMPORTANT did you report any concerns to the dealer within 3,000 miles of owning it???

I lost drive and 3rd. First, second and reverse continue to work. I removed the pan and changed the filter and fluid, saw nothing in the pan. Still have the same issue. Any ideas of what to do now? Have approx. 145,000 miles on Tahoe, second owner and well maintained vehicle.

hwarner, unfortunately I have a 2007 Suburban with 148000 miles on it and the same thing happen to me. When it happen to me I could put it in first gear and take off manually shifting up to drive. Turns out a bearing fell apart and I had to have the transmission rebuilt. $1600.00 ugh!!

My 2005 did the same thing this time last year, after having the CPU scanned I was told the throttle body was bad by the Chevy dealer, and then was told by another shop the transmission was shot. To be totally clear it was something like a belt or something for 2nd and 4th gear that was bad but it was the same price in labor to drop the tranny so I had to get a new one installed with a few upgrades. It sucks that my car only had 70k miles on it when it went out and was told the tranny's Chevy used are crap! My cost for upgrades and all was $2900 parts and labor.
