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.

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.

That's exactly what happened to my vehicle I have the misfire which happened 80,000 miles which now has my stability rack off and has my oil consumption ridiculously high. GM acted like they didnt know about this issue and said people were on the Internet lying. I was like really why would a large group of people who don't know each other waste their time lying on GM. I thought that was a stupid answer any rate they wouldn't accept responsibility and since my vehicle was only out of warranty by year not mileage they wouldn't help. I will NEVER buy a GM vehicle again, these vehicles aren't cheap to begin with so you would expect it to work past 100,000 miles without any problems but no not these I see why people are buying foreign cars.

Subsequent to the valve cover and pcv being replaced, I am still losing oil at about the same rate. I'm wondering what the next GM solution will be that I will have to pay for and if it will work.
