2006 Chevrolet Tahoe Owner Comments

problem #1

Feb 082011

Tahoe 4WD 8-cyl

  • 70,000 miles


We suddenly started noticing odor and found large puddle of oil spill on garage floor. Tried to determine the cause of the leak, immediately took vehicle to dealer, where we bought it and maintenance records are kept, koons Chevy, vienna va (the dealer) explained there is recall on one part (gasket) but the bearings also ruptured among other things such as the axel and differential. Chevrolet said that this is very unusual but the oil pressure switch may have been defective they just "don't know" in other words this is a serious repair warranty issue/defect that needs to be addressed. There is no recall on the other part at this time which is the oil pressure sensor, this all happened suddenly and simultaneously and there has to be a link and one thing triggered the other. The dealer does not want to honor this repair claiming that everything that is sealed and enclosed is covered but the other defective part is outside of the enclosure. Koons Chevrolet wants to charge hundreds of dollars for it, and Chevrolet will not take responsibility for it, and their answer was that there is no recall at the time.
