#59 of 413 Re: Does the 2007 Chevy Tahoe Have A Transmission Problem? [msivory]
Dec 26, 2007 (6:20 am)
Hi.. i am writing from Saudi Arabia and have faced the same problem with my 07 Tahoe LTZ 4WD.. my problem started when i was driving from work to grab a bite more than 2 weeks ago.. i slowed down for a road bump but as soon as i pressed the pedal a strong knock happened that seemed someone hit me from the back to me at first.. but soon realized that the car fealt heavier and i immediately stopped on the side of the road.. i tried shifting gears to reverse and neutral then restarted the engine.. i drove for less than a mile and then same thing occured again.. parked the car and called the GM Road Assistance number to send a tow truck for inspection by the agency since it is still under warranty (38000 km ~ 23500 miles).. after inspection they found some fault in the transmission but i couldn't understand the technical stuff.. i have been following up with the agency from the day it entered the agency and they claim now that the parts are not available and have to order it from the US.. the warranty covers this fault but i lost money on car rental since they say GM policy here in the Middle East that the agency is not obliged to provide a replacement car until the fault is approved by GM HQ in USA!!
i read in some websites that may be the 4-speed gear is probably the cause and highly recommended to use the 6-speed used in the Escalade and Yukon Denali.
i think this will be my last chevy i buy, although my previous car was a trailblazer 2001 LT that had some problems in the AC actuator which made some knocking sounds in the dashboard, and haven't learnt from that lesson!

Thought I'd post for you our transmission problem, sort of...32,000 miles on our '07...we actually were unaware of the problem until our first oil change as owners (bought it used) Mechanic asked if were aware of a transmisson leak, obviously no! Very slow leak, not even hitting garage floor. Problem was a Front Torque Convertor seal. Only took dealer 1 day, no cost of course.
Still annoyed that my '07 vehicle was in the shop for anything, even though it was mild.
#62 of 413 1999 Chevy Tahoe Tranmission problems
Dec 30, 2007 (7:25 pm)
My tahoe is a 99 model, it acts like it is stuck in 2nd gear all the time. I've been told it was the ignition swicth. Cause it carries current to the moduales in the transmission. Is this true or do I have other problems?

Our 07 Tahoe with 23k miles had to be towed to the dealership after we heard a loud pop while accelerating and then lost the ability to drive in any gear except reverse.
Anyone have any luck with GM replacing the transmission on the first break? If so, aren't they just going to replace it with another (potentially) faulty transmission?

Since your vehicle is under warranty and assuming the transmission is the problem, GM will repair or replace transmission, whichever they choose. I would think the chance of getting another faulty transmission is very small.

Talk about disappointed! Try this on for size:
Bought a new 2004 Tahoe with 7 miles on it:
3 months after purchase, transmission had to be rebuilt
7 months later the rear end leaked in the garage - rebuilt again
10 months later AC goes out
1 year 3 months old and the rear end has to be rebuilt for popping and slipping problem. Stop at a light and count to two and you get a slam feeling like someone just rear-ended you.
1 year 9 months old the rear end still having problems, locking up and grinding
2 years old the popping continues and when you turn on the left blinker the rear windshield wiper turns on.
Dealer says, trade it in on the new tahoe, my husband is suckered in. Rolled over debt onto new one.
2007 Tahoe purchased and computer has to be replaced 8 weeks later (doors won't lock, hatch won't open, auto start not working) was in the shop a total of 2 weeks combined as they replaced the remotes over and over.
leaks water like crazy
By the 8th water leak event the dealer still can't find the leak and tells me there is "nothing they can do"
Heater has to be on 90 or it doesn't heat - 89 degrees is still AC
14th leak event, transmission running at 182 degrees, still AC at 89 degrees inside the truck, starting to get the rear-ended slam when stopping or taking off. Display says tires are flat (when they are not), service traction control and stability track. Back up sensors beep like something is behind you, put it in drive and they beep until you reach your destination. Auto-start starts the vehicle then kills it right away.
Just picked it up from the dealership again this morning. They said "we noted your problems but couldn't duplicate them" I contacted Chevy and they said they do not do buy-backs on vehicles over 20K miles, which would have been great if I hadn't started having problems that they couldn't resolve at 180 miles!!!

One person noted that they had their transmission replaced by the dealer 11 times, The reported that the dealer told them that it was because they had big rims on the car. Then what about all of the other cars that dont have big tires that are having the same problem. This is ridiculous. It is clear that the problems lies with the transmission. We need to file a class action suit. My car is much older (2000) and I purchased it pre owned. Until now this is the only real problem that I have had. Based on the record of others with this problem, I will not buy another. It is a shame because I love all the features, size, build of this truck. It meets the needs of my family well. However, I cannot afford to continually have to replace transmission. Further, Im sure the timing will not always be right. When will it happen next when I am traveling cross country of something? I know Family Vacation? Just too unpredictable. No road trips for me.
#68 of 413 07 Tahoe transmission Knocking
Jan 11, 2008 (11:58 am)
Have a 2007 Tahoe and have a knocking sound at acceleration from a stop also. Took to dealer and they said the it was a loose bolt on the rear (also have had power window problems and remote problems),Take it home and it is still doing the same thing.
I too had a bad experience in the mid 80's with a buick and switched to ford's but wife wanted a Tahoe this time and i gave in, never again.
