my concern is when did GM know this. I would have appreciated a notice of recall if this was an established problem. from chasing problems and changing parts that are not the solution, how much in other parts changes have customers paid for to later come to this problem? wasted money! wasted time!
So I bought my 3 new suburbans/Tahoe in Lafayette Louisiana, but have not done business with the local dealer yet. I have kids turning driving age and was considering Chevy Cruze, Malibu and even new Impala, besides another Suburban- We love to travel in ours. now I'm concerned about buying. it appears GM is replatforming for 2015 (Suburban). I bought the new platform in my 2007 model. is it becoming to risky to buy new car when it is first year of replatform?
Local dealer is going to do nothing for me. He owes me nothing. GM, if you are watching this thread, your suggestions and enlightened self interest in getting my future business could be a good start. We both know this is a documented problem. the most profitable vehicles GM makes is the full size SUV. This is the one vehicle of which the customership should GMs choice to not own a widespread problem is why you will lose customers.

They don't care some service reps act like they don't know it's a problem and people are making stuff up on the Internet . This was really said to me they're not go n to do a recall bc it wud b too expensive so they're dealn wit it individually and seeing who they can get over on by bringing up the out of warranty claim. It's unfortunate to have an engine problem 83,000 miles they told me to pay th 1000-1200$ engine tear down n mayb they'll help me wit 20-40% if they feel it correlates wit sumthn on they're part. Needless to say my vehicle is still messed up bc that's a 5000$ job n I'm still makn car payments . I looked into lemon laws and talked to an attorney abt class action suit but was told it wud take to long n mite not b worth it . This all sucks bc a tahoe has always been my dream vehicle .

I had just purchase a 2008 Chevy Express van second hand this year March 2013. the van had 75,000 miles on it. I didn't started driving it until May 1st 2013 this year. Ever since the stabilitrak traction control and service enigine light keeps coming in and out with me as well. I have read some other persons post on another forum with people who are experiencing the same problems, one person suggested disconnecting the batery cables and have the computer reset of which i tried.
This only work for about a month then started coming back in again. Do anyone any updated suggestions? I would truly appreciate any suggestions.
#166 of 191 Issues with 2010 Tahoe
Jul 17, 2013 (4:14 am)
Good Morning: I came across this thread on Monday morning after experiencing all of the symptoms on my way to work that day. I experienced the service stabilitrak and service traction control as well as the very rough running and hard shifting between gears. I took it to my local mechanic not GM and this is what they found!
"Retrieved codes P0300, P0208, P0206, P0204, and P0202. Found Wiring harness near oil dip stick tube rubbed through (caused a short). Fuse blown to right bank fuel injectors. Replace fuse and repaired broke wire in harness, cleared cods and test drove".
Now it has only been 24 hours, but my truck is running great. I hope that all of you that are experiencing these issues are able to locate something so easy and cheap. It cost me $144.04 to have these repairs made. I did advise the mechanic to start with electrical items (battery, wire harnesses...etc) instead of throwing parts at it. Hopefully this helps!

I'm happy that that was all you had to pay unfortunately for me my diagnostic with chevy was 80$ only to confirm what a private mechanic already told me. The private mechanic wanted me to get a second opinion from chevy and it has to do with engine work needing to be done. I would thank God above if I could get it fixed for less than $200, count yourself lucky😊.

Have you taken the car to a mechanic or dealership yet?
If so what codes have they pulled i.e. plug #1 or #7 fouled.
How many miles do you have on the car?
Is the car in or out of warranty?
The dealership will want to charge you $300-$500 to tear down the top end to determine the problem. That's bullshit if the codes say #1 or #7 are fouled then we all know what the problem is without the added expense. They can stick a camera down #1 or #7 cyclinder to see the whole motor is trashed. If okay you just need a top end.
The bottom line is if you are still under warranty GM picks up the tab.
If not you either will have a new top end done or new motor.
We had a new motor and was able to have GM pickup half the cost (we were just out of warranty).
We have since sold our Tahoe and purchased a Honda.

I had a 2007 chevy tahoe purchased brand new in 2006 just this past year I spent over 1000.00 in repairs for the issue Traction/Stability light coming on. My vehicle had less than 100 thousand miles and kept in good condition. After spending this money in repairs and the problem still existed with the dealer wanting to charge me 2000.00 the next time I finally traded it in. Had I known these problems exist in these vehicles I NEVER would have purchased another tahoe.
