Tahoe 4WD 8-cyl

My 3 year old daughter was able to shift the vehicle from park into neutral without the key in the ignition and without depressing the brake causing the vehicle to roll backward into the street. No accident or injuries occurred as my father was able to reach over and hit the brakes.

My problem is with the transmission, I have had two transmission installed in my Chevy Tahoe.I have a number of friends that either have the Chevy Tahoe, or the Suburban. We all had the same problem(transmission).I spoke with one of the service advisor at one of the local Chevy dealers and he spoke of many problems that they had with the 60O series. Thanks and please help me and my freinds.
