Was wondering if you ever found out if there is a recall or ??? from GM about the door lock problem? Your Tahoe sounds exactly like mine, only 1 door lock working! Twice I've locked my keys in the car and had to have my wife come rescue me because of this problem. I have to push the button down on my driver side door and if the keys are in there, then I'm locked out. I now keep a spare door key in my wallet to solve that problem. It wouldn't bother me that much if the back doors had key entry too, but opening them for people is a real hassle! I don't want to have to pay over a grand like one guy said he did on this forum... Thanks, Gary

I too had cut my hand on a couple of occasions with the bubble gum machine door handle. Very, very poor quality. My dealer replaced all of my handles under my warranty. I have to say that with all of the problems/issues I have had with my Tahoe, my dealership has been great w/ replacing and fixing every complaint that I have brought it in for. They are Freeway Chevrolet in Chandler, AZ. That is not to say that I will buy another Chevy. Until they get their ---- in order and start producing a quality product again, I will not even consider. As soon as my warranty expires, my Tahoe is getting traded in.

I posted a couple of weeks ago about door lock problems, door handle chrome problems, etc. I received an email from gm stating I needed to have the dealer check and make sure the door locks were not working!!!! From what I read here, it is 100.00 and then they tell you it is out of warranty, and they will not do anything. It sounds to me like it is a way to keep the dealer in business, not a way to help us. Does anyone have any experience? I don't mind getting it diagnosed, but if it is not going to help, I don't want to pay the dealer for nothing, I can diagnose that the locks DON'T work myself.

I have a 2008 Yukon Denali that is having the same issues as the other individuals within this posting. How can I contact you directly to get the issue resolved?

I recently bought a 2009 Chevy Tahoe Hybrid with 77,000 miles from a Chevrolet Dealer. I have recently had 3/4 door locks go out. It has been less than 7 months since my purchase, so I will be very upset if Chevy has not recalled or is willing to fix the lock issues. For a 60k car to have issues with something as simple as door locks is absolutely ridiculous. I had a 2007 Tahoe before this vehicle and loved it. Starting to think I should have kept that model.
Does anyone have an update on what Chevy will do about the locks, or the cost to fix them?

I posted awhile ago and had the diagnosis done and contacted one of these GM customer service people. I have had no luck in having the problem resolved and it seems my only option is to pay and have it done and hope for a recall.
My Suburban is a 2009 LT with around 55K miles on it. I bought it used in July 2011. It is sad to have a car with power door lucks, remote door locks, and remote starter and none of it works. Several years ago when the US bailed out GM they obviously decided to buy cheap parts to save money but they didn't lower the price. They only lowered their standards. I will never buy another GM product.
