I have an LTZ, the Service Stabilitrac light and the Check Engine light came on right after encountering the feeling of being rear ended at acceleration from a stop. I took it to the dealer and they indicated that my aftermarket cold air intake was loose and that is what was causing those lights to come on. My husband tightened it and after a couple of cycles the lights went away. Odd that your lights are coming on because of fuel......

I've had this thing in the shop numerous times for this problem. They have greased the yoke several times and this last time, they replaced it with a nickel plated yoke one replaced the u-joint. I still have the problem. After each visit, the problem starts out again minor, with just a slight movement, but each time it happens, the movement is worse. Passengers in my car turn around to see if I've been rearended. Problem is, the dealership can't duplicate it. Well, I can't make it happen. It doesn't happen EVERY time, it doesn't happen EVERY day, just happens when it happens. I'm so very frustrated. Now, if I want to trade it, any dealer, no matter the brand, can pull up the history and see this problem and know it's not fixed. I'll never get fair market value for a vechicle I purchased brand new and only has 37k miles on it.

Can you please e-mail me with your Edmunds user name, involved dealer, VIN, current mileage, and complete contact information including a good number to reach you at. I would like to look into this further.

I have a 2011 tahoe with the same problem. GM is giving me the run around cause it can't be duplicated. Did you ever get your problem resolved and if so, what dealership. Maybe mine could contact them. GM customer service says they don't look at blogs and are not aware of any problem like this. Any help would be appreciated, I'm at my limit!

Hi. Unfortunately, I did not get mine resolved. I went round and round with the one person I was allowed to talk to at "GM". Some foreigner named Hazel who was obviously reading from a script. I was just getting ready to trade for a 2011, to give the Tahoe/GM a second chance. This Tahoe was my first GM product ever. Seeing this, I will most definitely not be purchasing another. I wish you luck in getting your problem resolved, and even more luck in getting to talk to a real person with GM. To me, talking to the district person, who obviously has no English skills, and no automotive knowledge, is no different than listening to a recorded script. As for blogs...they DO read them! They contacted me about this post, and of course, it was another foreigner reading from a script.

I had the same problem in my 2007 tahoe LTZ, it went on for almost a year and no on could figure it out. FINALLY my mechanic found that one of the motor mounts were broken. That fixed the problem. Have your mechanic check it.

Did any of the above get resolution? I bought my Tahoe used and love it. I have always wanted one. However I felt this issue and took it to the dealership just shy of the warranty running out. Needless to say they found nothing upon their 'test drive'. Now I am out of warranty and the issue is getting progressively worse. I find myself looking in rear view mirror at least daily. Also, when I go over a speed bump (after completely stopping prior to), it feels as if the rear end just 'drops' off of the speed bump. It feels like the rear end is being pulled off. I have three children and this is my only vehicle. I cannot afford to be carless. Can anyone let me know what this could be? I want it fixed before its too late.

I finally ended up trading mine, as every time they worked on it, it repaired it, TEMPORARILY. I can't begin to tell you how much run around I received from GM, but my local dealership was very good to me. They tried really hard to get GM to take care of things, but they wouldn't.
What they did whenever I took it in, was replace the yoke with a nickel plated one, and replaced the u-joint because it was nylon injected. They did this based on bulletin #09-04-17-002c - 323 Best I can tell, that's what the bulletin number is. Hard to read their writing.
After that, each time I took it in, they greased the yoke. And, like I said, it fixed it temporarily. Good luck.
