2006 Chevrolet Suburban Owner Comments

problem #2

Oct 012011


  • 50,000 miles


The contact owns a 2006 Chevrolet Suburban. The contact stated that while accelerating from a stop, the vehicle initially accelerated then halted. The "traction control active" message was displayed across the message board. The failure recurred on numerous occasions. The vehicle was taken to a dealer multiple times where it was diagnosed that the shock absorber and hubs needed to be replaced. The vehicle was repaired on multiple occasions; however, the failure persisted. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The failure mileage was 50,000. The VIN was unavailable.

problem #1

Nov 022012

Suburban 8-cyl

  • 60,000 miles
Would drive fine at times. When restarted, engine would lose power, very sluggish, unable to pick up speed. On dash, message would read 'service stability'. took to our local Chevrolet dealer, they were unable to repair, they could not tell me why message would appear, absolutely clueless to the problem. Then took my vehicle to my local mechanic, he stated he had four other GMC vehicles come in with the same message on dash. He stated it has something to do with the transfer case. That's more than what the dealer said. My mechanic stated he attempted to get the part, but item is on back order from manufacturer. Does this indicate that many many more vehicles are experiencing the same problem? have been experiencing this problem for a while. My vehicle only has 60,000 miles, way under the amount of miles for a vehicle 6 years old. This has to be a defect. Please help!!!!!
