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.

I see Toyota has stepped up and is doing the right thing by recalling their cars with door lock and window problems. Why doesn't GM do the same thing?
And they wonder why they keep losing market share.

I too amy having a problem with my door locks. At first it wouldnt unlock and now it wont lock? Evidently it is a cronic problem with Chevy Tahoes and Im wondering why G.M. hasnt recalled it, other that the obvious that it may cost them money to repair. Can anyone help? Rick ... Hs.dc60yahoo.com

Well, another one fooled by GM! Just bought a 2008 Denali and the passenger door and rear door locks do not work. It has only 39000 miles! I traded in my 2002 Tahoe and I feel like I made a mistake! The tax payers of this country bail you out and you shovel crappy goods at us! If this issue is not resolved for free by my dealer, I may be trading this car in for a Nissan before I even put plates on it.

#651 of 801 2009 Chevy Tahoe Rear Hatch Door Issue
Nov 10, 2012 (6:54 pm)
New member and just registered. I stumbled across this forum when I was searching for some trouble shooting pointers on how to fix/address the rear hatch on my
I have not read the entire thread regarding the issue with the door actuators but, I skimmed through and it seems that this is obviously an issue that GM has noticed.
I bought the Tahoe brand new in April of 2009 and after 4 months of ownership, the driver's side rear door would not open from the inside. With a house full of children, it became frustrating having to get out of the car to open the door from the outside while in the car pool line. Since the vehicle was still under warranty, the dealership fixed it at no cost so, I never had a second thought about the issue and figured it was a fluke.
I purchased the 6yr/60K extended warranty and go figure, I didn't have another issue till today when the current odometer reads 63,568. The rear hatch was working fine all day and when I got home from shopping, I go to open the rear hatch to get everything out and now it won't open at all. I had to climb to the back and let down the seats to get my stuff out.
My question is, does this issue mimic the issues that have been prevelant with the all the passenger door issues posted here? If so, are dealers aware and fixing this as a warranty issue? Any information anyone can pass along would be greatly appreciated.
