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😊.

Can you update me on this topics and if you have any head way. I have 2007 chevy suburban and have had the oil consumption problem, many others and now the Traction control/stability issue. I need some help on what I can do.

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.

I ended up spending over 1000.00 in repairs for the same issue which was not resolved. The dealership wanted to charge me an additional 2000.00 within a matter of a week for the same issue. I got frustrated and traded the vehicle in. Sorry I purchased another tahoe had I known these issues exist beforehand I would have not purchas another tahoe.

I would love to be a part of the class action lawsuit. What needs to be done is take it to the news, then just maybe something will be done.

It seems like a slam dunk for a settlement. I have been complaining about the oil loss issue since I got my 2007 Tahoe. I was told there was no solution. Now suddenly on September 18, 2013 I'm told there is a solution which involves replacing defective valve covers and a PCV system that was allowing too much oil to blow through.
The result was the oil fouled the spark plugs, which caused miss firing which activated the Traction Control Warning. It will cost around $1,000 to fix. Chevrolet and GM are pretty much giving me its too bad. Actually this is the second time I've had my spark plugs replaced.
If we can get an attorney interested, I'm in.

Have you contacted one and asked for a (free) evaluation?

Like I was told, there is no official "repair". The only thing that resolves the issue is to replace the engine. Luckily I purchased addl warranty when I bought my 07 suburban. The warranty company put a brand new 2012 GMC engine in with full warranty. Chevy is fully aware of the oil consumption issue and take 0 responsibility to make the situation right. Sad.

That is bulls*** answer. It's a GM TSB and it only cost us $300.
We did the same thing then 3 months later had to put a new motor in.
Now we own Honda. Something I know that works.
