On Wednesday, July 12, 2017, I signed a lease for a brand-new 2017 Chevrolet Tahoe LS at ed bozarth Chevrolet in las vegas nv. Three days later as I was driving the vehicle on the main streets my vehicle kept hesitating and jumping as I would have to stop in traffic then move again when I pressed on the gas. Then as I was waiting to make a left turn in traffic, my vehicle stalled then allowed me to go. Then suddenly my engine light came on. I then received an email from the onstar notification stating the diagnostic detected an issue with my engine and my transmission system. I brought my vehicle in Monday 07/17/17 morning at 11 am. The service man informed me that this was a known issue with some of the brand-new vehicles by the dealership and general motors because of the excessive heat in las vegas, but there was no recall in place for general motors and a letter was issued dated June 30, 2017 that he had to provide to me because there was no solution to fix the problem at this time. He let me that general motors has not issued a recall because they don't know what to fix on the vehicle due to the extreme heat. I asked why was this not disclose to me before leasing me the vehicle if this was a known issue to allow me the choice to decide if this was something I could tolerate. The sales rep nor the service department were able to answer that question. I asked to speak to the general manager of ed bozarth Chevrolet and was informed that I would need to wait until Monday, July 24once he returns from vacation. I let the sales rep know that I was unhappy, I was deceived and I feel unsafe driving this vehicle. I have the dated copy of the letter #pip5507 stalling - hesitation, I have the first diagnostic email stating the vehicle was in perfect condition, and I have the diagnostic email from on star stating that the vehicle is having engine and transmission defects.

Yesterday was driving home from work and came to a round about, slowed down and vehicle died (alternator gauge went below 14, oil pressure dropped below 40, and battery light came on). I lost all steering and brake pedal was stiff. Now vehicle continuously idles rough and will stall out if not on the throttle, idles 500 and lower. I have replaced mass air flow sensor, air filter, plugs, wires, O2 sensors, fuel filter, evap canister, alternator, and had throttle body cleaned. See there are many complaints filed of the same issues and wondering if anyone at gm has found a solution. Also have noticed gm has recalled the intake gasket but I have not received anything on this recall.

2014 Chevrolet Tahoe police pursuit vehicle (ppv) issued new by highway patrol in 2q14. Vehicle presented with near complete stalling at idle in park, as well as idle in drive with brake applied - where engine intermittently has trouble stabilizing rpms between 0. 7 and 0. 6, and the gauge needle moves back and forth, sometimes erratically. Also lack of power or lag, several seconds hesitation upon rapid and non-rapid acceleration (making even gauging and pulling directly out into highway speed traffic unsafe), uncontrolled idle surge when idle stalling regained throttle (resulting in forward lunging). Vehicle received a hot weather surge/sag engine calibration which only seemed to mitigate some severity of symptoms, but problems returned within days to weeks. Vehicle received at least another two separate engine calibrations with same results. With less than 15k miles, original symptoms remain and echo those of several other users in the same agency (even in cooler weather). These are very similar to safety concerns raised in the 2013 model in complaints by municipalities in NHTSA complaints id# 10598212 06/19/14 and 10641010 10/14/14. Unpredictable lunging, lack of acceleration and hesitation are primary safety concerns for an emergency vehicle which must be predictable.

While driving vehicle completely stalls no electrical not even hazard lights. I was driving and radio started to static and then car stalled was not able to turn on hazerds making it very dangerous as other vehicles were not able to see that I was stalled and got very close to hitting my truck had to call for help as I was sitting in intersection had no way of telling them I was unable to move had to open my doors to call attention to drivers. A day before I noticed that problem began when I parked vehicle and ignition key turned off all electricity will quickly shut off including radio. When at a normal time radio would stay on until door opened. This incident has happen to me 3 times already. I have had full body throttle replaced, battery and ground cables replaced and still not fixed vehicle also shakes alot at times when stopped at intersection.
This has happened numerous times in the past year and a half. When accelerating after a stop or slowing down, there is a "pause" in acceleration. I hit the gas and the vehicle slows down significantly before it jerks forward at an accelerated speed. For example, when I'm making a left turn and hit the gas it will slow down and then shoot forward really quickly. Sometimes the forward jerk is so powerful it will make the tires squall as if I'm purposefully trying to "burn out. " this happens when I stop at light or stop sign, when I'm reversing out of a drive way, as I make left turns and there's a speeding vehicle coming at me and the Tahoe decides to decelerate in the middle of the road. . . Driving conditions don't matter, whether on a highway or city street, doesn't matter. It happens all. The. Time. I'm afraid it will just stall while I'm making a turn and I'll be t-boned by an 18 wheeler! I'm afraid to go anywhere with my kids in the vehicle!.

Reference: near death experiences while driving our brand new (2 week old, Chevrolet Tahoe ) my family and I have experienced 3 near death situations on two major interstates while driving the two week old 2007 Tahoe that I purchased on may 20. I will explain the dangerous experiences we were subjected to in Chevrolet Tahoe. The Chevrolet Tahoe I just purchased 2 weeks ago has stalled on three occasions, while I was driving at 65-70 mph, on a busy interstate. When the incidents occurred there were many motorist on the interstate (at night and during the day) we went to two dealers and spoke with on star four times. The repairs were supposed to be completed but each time the SUV stalled on the interstate causing a possibly fatal incident for my family and other motorist. The 2007 Tahoe that I have been sold is clearly dangerous and defective. Now it's Friday, June 9, 2006, and I have a brand new 2007 Tahoe that is truly malfunctioning; my family needs safe and reliable transportation.
The contact stated truck stalled at 60 mph. No lights came on, it just cut out. It usually restarted after the second time. When parking the truck and letting it sit overnight with ã‚â¼ of tank of gas it will not start the next day until the contact put more gas into the tank. As long as vehicle did not sit overnight it will usually restart. The contact noticed this happening at 90,000 miles. He knew someone else who had the exact same problem.

I have a 2002 Chevrolet Tahoe. Once the vehicle sets overnight or a period of six hours or longer the following problem occurs: I go to back out of my driveway in reverse the vehicle engine will die. Note that my drive way is on an incline. This cannot be recreated if the dealership attaches a tech tool to the vehicle. This problem can be recreated without fail with nothing attached. I have also had one occurrence that after I started the vehicle back, which it will always start back, I was attempting to pull out on a major road when the vehicle appeared to try and stall out. Luckily the vehicle picked back up and responded normally just a second before I was nearly struck broadside by a semi-truck. The date below is approximately when the problem started.
The roof strut that the headliner attaches to is punched too big for the plugs they installed. Gm has replaced the headliner, plugs, and now want to install felt around the plud and "ram it back in" which is not a fix for the problem. I have been very patient waiting for them to either replace the strut or the car. I am at the end of my rope with this, can you please advise me what to do? dt.

While driving at any speed and without warning the vehicle would suddenly stall out. The dealership replaced the fuel pump twice but the problem still exist.
The vehicle experienced stalling and no starting. After replacing the fuel filter and the fuel pump relay, without success, the fuel pump assembly was removed from the tank. The wiring to the fuel pump and the fuel guage sender was melted together, and a great deal of the insulation was melted off one of the wires going to the fuel pump. The particular wire that was melted/burnt shows severe discoloration in the metal of the wire itself, as if from extreme heat. This is on an in-tank assembly!.
