All of you should visit the National Highway Traffic Safety site located at link title
You can file complaints and fill out forms that send your issues to the investigative group at NHTSA. Its the only way to get GM to recognize the issue.
Also, Contact CNN and file a request for STORY submission at CNN.COM

I noticed my first slippage early. Same response from the dealer as may others have posted here. At 41,500 miles, just finished turning a sharp curve on an incline when I got the loud bang (thought I'd blown a tire) and immediate loss of power. Remaining was reverse and limited lower gear. Chevrolet dealer said "not a common problem" but it may be time to get rid of this one. My fourth GM over the past 10 years, but not sure I'll stick with them. Car is still under repair so we'll see.

I had the same problem. 07 Z71 Suburban with 8,200 miles. This is crazy. My dealer, however (valley Stream Chevy) did tow the vehicle to its shop, and they REPLACED the entire tranny unit. I cant understand why a NEW 50K vehical could have tranny problems. I LOVE my truck, however I cannot deal with these kind of 80's quality problems.

I HAVE A 2002 TAHOE JUST HAD THE SAME EXPERIENCE WITH THE TRANSMISSION THAT YOU ARE DISCRIBING, THEY( THE DEALER) PRETTY MUCH BLAMED ME FOR NOT HAVEING THE TRANNY SERVICED EVEN THOUGH THE ONLY MADATE FOR SERVICE IS AT 100000 MILES.
IT IS GOING TO COST ME 2700 TO GET REPAIRED. PRETTY DISCOURAGING. I WILL HAVE TO SAY THE SINCE MY PROBLEM RIDEN CHEVY TAHOE (LIFTER NOISE PROBLEM,LIFTERS REPLACED STILL SAME NOISE BLAMED ON 5.3 MOTOR,TRAN, A/C EVAPORATOR, STEERING COUPLER)THAT I HAVE PURCHASED TWO CARS BOTH TOYOTAS. I AM A CHEVY FAN HAVING OWED MANY CLASSIC CORVETTES, CAMAROS HOWEVER WITH THE MISERABLE EXPERINECE WITH MY TAHOE I CANNOT JUSTIFY SPENDING 35K ON A VEHICLE
THAT JUST LAST TILL THE PAYMENT AND WARRANTY ARE BOTH COMPLETE.

My wife drives a 2007 Suburban LTZ, 4X4. She first had problems with the transmission slipping when it was in auto. The dealer could find nothing wrong and told her to keep it in 2wd only. She has all of her maintenance performed by our local dealer regularly. Last week she was taking our children to church when she heard a loud noise and then the vehicle stopped. The wrecker was called and the truck spent the next three days at the dealership having the sprag gear replaced. The vehicle has only 34,000 miles and has never been off-road or towed a trailer. My wife has strongly expressed her anger with both the dealership and General Motors. There is an apparent problem with the transmission and GM showed have a recall. GM sent us a letter suggesting that we contact the BBB AUTOLINE to discuss our disattisfaction with our car. The number for the BBB is 1-800-955-5100. This is our 6th Tahoe/Suburban in twelve years and we have lost all confidence in it. I have been driving it in auto since we got it back and the transmission is slipping worse than before we lost the sprag gear.

Let me tell u MY story. I have an 07 Tahooe 13,000 miles. I put E85 fuel and my truck wasnt compatible. Such an idiot i am. On my way home the Stabilitrack light came on.Came home called the dealer they said that it shouldn't hurt it but try to get as much gas out as possible. Well, later that night I drive down the street and the Stabilitrack light comes on to be serviced AND the engine light comes on and when I accelerated it felt like someone hit me in the back. I thought for sure i messed up my car with that E85 I could have beat myself. I drove it straight home and got it towed to the dealer. They told me that The stabilitrack light came on because I have 22inch rims which is not true. The same day i purchased my SUV we drove it straight to the tire shop to put them on and that was about a year ago. He told me the engine light was on because of the gas.. Ok i believe that.. but he said there were no codes comming back for a problem. I told him they need to run more tests besides looking for codes because its jerking. Come to find out... I have a transmission problem and he told me that ALOT of newer Tahoes and Suburbans are having the same problem. So NO it wasnt MY fault about the gas it was just all coincidental that all of this happend at one time. My SUV has been in the shop for 2 weeks now they part they ordered was called the "Vaulve Body" which is an internal component in the trans thats causing it to slip. I should get my baby back next week. This is my first AND last GM vehicle. Although I hear that many are having issues with their local service place I would fight with them until they fixed the issue.Go to their boss.. their bosses boss. GM has a problem and its obvious, their transmissions in their SUVs suck!
#50 of 422 02 TAHOE TRANSMISSION PROBLEMS
Oct 17, 2007 (10:51 am)
I have a 2002 Chevy Tahoe that I bought used in Feb. 05. I took it to the local chevy dealer to inquire about an extended warranty and he made the comment that it has had transmission work but didn't elaborate. In August of 05 (approx. 40,000 miles on the vehicle) I tried to back out of my parking spot to discover I had lost reverse gear. The remaining gears rapidly followed as I limped it back home. GM explained that there was a weak part in my transmission and they would replace it with a stronger one. I think my out of pocket was around $150 because this part had already been replaced under warranty with the previous owner. Now, two years and barely 15,000 miles later, out goes reverse again, leaving me stranded. I have been contacting GM for three weeks trying to get some type of answer from them. Finally did. They will do nothing since they "good willed" the last repair. To me, this is outrageous! The same part goes bad 3 times in 55,000 miles and they do nothing? The way it sounds, the newer ones have the same junk transmission as I do. If I looked it up right, it is a 4L60E. I wouldn't have the slightest idea of how to start a class action law suit but if anyone else does, count me in. These trucks are too expensive to start with (poor gas mileage, initial cost, etc). and then we have to replace/repair transmissions every 15,000 miles????????? Any suggestions/comments would be appreciated.
