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.

Class Action should be a slam dunk.
Honda has agreed to settle a class action for the same oil consumption issue with their V6's with variable cylinder management.
I've battled 2 different dealerships with this issue for 4 years with my 07 Suburban and got every excuse in the book but no solutions.

Wow I just read the article on your link I wonder if utilizing a lawyer who is proficient in these type of cases is beneficial bc there's enough people on this forum to join I'm sure and everyone is looking for the same thing guaranteed replacement of the known problem regardless of the warranty being expired due to it being on GM design flaw.

I have a 2007 Suburban LT with the same issue. Stabilitrack light comes on for no reason even before moving. Also TERRIBLE oil consumption. I mean TERRIBLE!!! I would join a class action if there is any development in that area. Is there anyone pursuing that? I'm tired of auto manufacturers costing consumers thousands of dollars over an unwillingness to own up to a design flaw that can be fixed. Just fix our vehicles GM! That's all we are asking. Somebody say the word and I'm in.

I'm not sure about the stabilitrack problem. but my Tahoe eats oil too, and I don't know if I fix it or not, but I changed my oil a few weeks back and this time I added 32oz "or 1qt" of Lucas Synthetic Oil Stabilizer. and I have not noticed any oil level change. just a little something for you guys to try if you want. my ratio was 4.5 qts of oil to 1qt of stabilizer. make sure all of it is synthetic. good luck.

I was surfing the web to inquire about my oil consumption in my 2007 Chevy Tahoe, i have also had Stabilitrak indicators as well,but no indicator lights for that as of lately. However, i continue to get the Add oil indicator soon( 1 to 2 Weeks) after an Oil Change.
This Time around,i received a message indicating oil pressure Low,took it to the GM Dealer,changed the oil,Truck seems to be running fine,but message center indicates 89 % oil life remains after 1 1/2 weeks of the oil change.
if there are any solution,please advise.

So how do we get something started? These issues are ridiculous and the fact that GM published documentation that states this engine burns oil and requires a quart roughly every 3000 miles is BS. Now my stabilitrak warnings are on too.
My 1999 is a better truck by leaps and bounds.
