Outside temperature. In snow, air flow to the sensor is apparently blocked and the temperature reads 33, the temperature of snow rather than outside temp.. I was going far too fast last weekend since it turns out the temperature was actually in the mid-20's and I could have had a disastrous accident. I was out of snowing conditions and thought the roads were just wet. The error will persist so long as there is snow on the front of the car this does not have to be the case: Our previous 2001 Suburban gave accurate measurements under all conditions, thus catching me off-guard.. this is a dangerous problem and hopefully can be easily fixed.

When driving my new 2016 Chevrolet Suburban, I am experiencing a droning sound like a window being down. Some refer to it as booming/ tunneling noise. Mine starts at around 45 mph

I just purchased this vehicle a month ago and already received a recall for the software airbag issue. I traded my 2010 Chevy Suburban for this new one and have noticed that the moment I get onto the freeway and start to accelerate the car starts to vibrate so bad that anything in the middle console starts to rattle and the console will spill any drinks sitting there in the cupholders. I have owned Chevy vehicles all my life and am very annoyed that this is happening. Something is seriously wrong. I also just noticed that there is a recall for the suspension recall 42190 and parts are not available at this time I just bought this vehicle in Sept 2016 and it only has 800 miles on it and notices went out may-June 2016 and I was not made aware when I purchased this vehicle. I will also talk to the dealership according to this recall the vehicle should not be driven until its fixed. Who was going to tell me this had I not looked it up and not driving it is impossible its our only vehicle and were a family of 7. four of those are my babies. I also will be taking it in due to the recall 16007. The vibration of the vehicle will also be discussed as well.

I own a 2016 Chevy Suburban ltz purchased Feb 29, 2016. It is now at the dealer and for a second time dealing with a vibration issue starting at approximately 43 mph and continuing to worsen as speed increases. The tires have been road forced balance but vibration is still present. This is the second Suburban with issues, the 2015 I had was so problematic that GM did trade assistance to get me out of it, but it still cost me money. The current 2016 Suburban as only 1600 miles on it and vibration issues began at approximately 900 miles. I cannot describe the inconvenience and frustration I am experiencing for a vehicle costing more than $70,000. GM knows there is a problem and their lack of fixing it or addressing it is nothing short of criminal theft. They take people's money knowing their vehicles are sub-standard then relegate me to a pathetic loaner vehicle, tell me it is "normal" and in the end toss a little money for "trade assistance" resulting in another problematic issue. I beg and implore you as the federal regulatory Agency to make GM accountable immediately. Either force them to immediately fix these vehicles, force them to buy them back at full purchase prices and stop them from selling them immediately. Frankly, this issue is the same as VW with tdi engines except that GM is not covering it up and feds are not forcing the hand. Help protect the money and lives of us citizens. There have been numerous complaints!

When driving my new 2016 Chevrolet Suburban, I am experiencing a booming/ tunneling noise between the speeds of 45 mph and 60 mph and experiencing pressure in my ears from some sort of pressure created in the vehicles cabin. The pressure is very uncomfortable. Dealer does can not get direction from GM on how to address the issue.
