There is a misfire and stabiltrac light that comes and goes intermittent the dealer don't know what's wrong I've changed out electrical parts all over the truck still cant find. Battery issues from beginning of trucks purchase now I drive today and have water leaking in the doors so much that fill up and spill inside.. I've learned that GM really doesn't care about their customer and its really sad seeing this is my third Tahoe and Impala ss, , really thinking Toyota is gonna get my business unless GM can make things right for their customer.

My wife and daughter were coming home from a 15 hour trip to Oklahoma when the stability traction control light came on and then went off. The next thing that came on was service stability traction control, the vehicle didn't lose power and they drove on to a gas station for fuel and restroom break. When she got back in the car she turned the key and the vehicle just kept trying to crank itself over and over again. The whole time this was going on the engine was shaking violently and after 15 minutes of trying to start the vehicle she gave up and called someone to drive 2 hours pick her and my daughter up so they could get home. The next morning I went to get the vehicle and it started right up with no problems. But after some research on this issue have found that this is a big problem and GM and the dealers have no clue on how to fix it. I cannot believe that GM hasn't recalled the vehicles as this is a deadly safety issue and I am now afraid to let my wife drive the vehicle. But how can GM go on knowing that this is a issue which will eventually turn into lawsuits when someone is seriously hurt or killed due to this defect.

I own a 07 Chevy Tahoe lt & have had problems with the stabilitrac system since I bought it under warranty from the Chevy dealer. Originally all my car did was turn off the stabiltrac and say service stabilitac then it started to turn it self into safety mode where it reduces engine power &won't let you basically drive, then it started locking the doors by itself I have taken it in several times only to have the dealerships garage tell me its a different issue every time, everything from the bearings to a tiny cord. Well my car has continued to randomly put itself in safety mode for no reason&a few weeks ago I was driving on the freeway in the fast lane going the 65mph speed limit when it suddenly said engine power reduced service stabiltrac again & suddenly dropped my rate of speed to 15 miles to per hour without any pre warning.I barely made it to the next lane and then the shoulder and came so close to getting into a major accident I was so shaken.I let my car sit for a minute&like it always does it went right back to being fine.I took it back to the Chevy dealer who said there was nothing wrong with it (after a $200 bill to look at it) the next day it did it again this time on a highway where the speed limit was 55 mph.I was so shaken up with my little guys in the car that I contacted the Chevy Corp who at first said they were aware there was a problem with some 08 & newer Tahoe like this then when I asked them to fix mine they recanted their story saying they never heard of this problem.I decided to research it myself and have found hundreds and hundreds of posts&forums of people saying the exact same thing. Which is why I am contacting you, if this is happening in many Chevy/GMC cars w/stabilitrac this is soooo have your car suddenly reduce power to 10-15 miles per hour (with no brake lights or warnings to people behind you) is extremely dangerous.

After driving approx 3 miles, my "stabilitrak off", "traction control off", ABS light, check engine light all came on, simultaneously. My speedometer and other gauges started swinging from left to right and then flatlined, my power locks, "locked and unlocked". when the transmission shifted, the whole Tahoe jerked. When I arrived at my destination approx 3 miles further and turned the engine off, attempted to re start and it wont start. This is the fourth time this has happened in two weeks. I have taken to a Chevy dealer twice to diagnose. Both times they said they cannot find the cause, and all they can do is reset the error codes.

I was stopped at a red light and as I took off the stabilitrack said it need to be serviced and the engine power was reduced. Took to shop and they reset the computer and everything seemed fine. Now 4 days later I was in the car wash parked with the car running while I was vacuuming and lost all power and stabilitrack did the same thing. After waiting 10 minutes or so I was able to start the vehicle and drive it to the shop again. They said it is a common problem and it doesn't have a true "fix" at this point.

Was driving and when exiting freeway. Truck started shaking really bad and traction /stability control light came on. Engien light has been coming on and off for about a year. All they do is reset system and comes right back on a few days later. It been well taken care of. Bought it in 06 and paid it off in 08. This truck has been giving me many problem since 09. I even have a crake on dash board all the way to air bag since 08. Dealer said no recalls and is due to sun! bull.... I have been reading on-line and many people have simalier problems.

As I was driving down the interstate at a controlled speed of 70mph I suddenly noticed the stability and traction icon came on and off every 2 or 3 minutes. As this happened I felt my engine lose power and the steering wheel locked up for a few seconds. This is now happening every day I drive to work or anywhere I drive over 55mph. I have a 4 month old son and I am petrified at would could happen if this does not get recalled or fixed. I have read that service centers can not fix this.

I have an 07 Tahoe and have read from other people that this is happening to alot of others as well. I had my truck inspected at the Chevy dealer in lake elsinore. They said it could be a number of things and thought that cleaning my intake system would fix the problem. It was fine for one day then out of nowhere driving on the freeway my stability trac light comes on and the check engine light and says reduced engine power. I had my wife and kids in the truck and find it funny that I guess this has happened to others with different vehicles but the same year GMC Yukon. I had the same problem as one and they were near semi trucks. This is not good even worse when you are no longer under the warranty and the dealer can't tell you exactly what it is but wants to try everything. That is wrong. This is dangerous to have happen and even worse when the dealer wants to say they are not exactly sure but find out from reading about others vehicles like mine with the same problem and no help.

This is about the 10th time this has happened...stability track comes on- reduces engine power...dealership finally changed the throttle body in June of 2011...not going to believe this- but it has started back up December of 2011...not a happy camper. This is so dangerous. Like Toyota vehicles accelerating this does the decreases acceleration. You have to get off the highway put your flashes on -shut vehicle off and try to call someone for assistance. I plan to get rid of this vehicle. Please notify all owners before it causes major problems. Again, very dangerous...not sure what is causing this issue, internet claims bad gas...I just know its awful to be in this situation...

I was at a stop light, and the problem happened unexpectedly when I pressed on the gas when the light turned green. My car moved forward just slightly, jerked hard to a complete stop, and it wouldn't drive anymore. I was able to get pushed to the side in neutral, but needed a tow to the dealer. The only working gears were R, 3, 2, and 1. bringing it into the dealer, they confirmed there was a problem with the transmission. I had done some research when this happened and noticed that a lot of people had the same problem, all in the same type of scenario where they were at a complete stop. Second issue, not nearly as major is the stabilitrak. The light goes on and off constantly, pretty much from the first year I've had the car. And lastly, the interior chrome door handles have all peeled off and cut me and my passengers several times. The exterior door handles have come loose, the fuel pocket is completely broken, and after a heavy rain, water gets trapped inside the shell of the back door and sloshes around while I'm driving. I have to remove the bottom lining of the door for the trapped water to be released.

My "stabilitrak off", "traction control off", ABS light, check engine light all came on. My speedometer and other gauges started swinging from left to right and then flatlining, my power locks, "locked and unlocked" on their own. This happened repetitively as I was driving. I have owned my 2007 Chevy Tahoe for 18 months and this has occurred 4-5 times, twice in the first 12 months. I have taken to a Chevy dealer twice to diagnose and repair the problem but they haven't been able to diagnose problem.

  • 9,500 miles
Battery began to go dead. I would call road service to get it restarted. This has happened several times and *onstar was notified on most occasions of this happening.*onstar was notified due to the contract I have with them for roadside help. This has happened atleast seven times.(using *onstar for assistance on atleast three of these seven times) I have taken it back to the dealership for help with the problem. They replaced the battery. But the real problem is the car just up and shuts down while driving. This has happened twice(I told the dealer about it)and the thing, other than the safety factor, I'm afraid to drive the car. I travel and I really need a car. I can't afford a secondary vehicle. My family stated nor can you afford to die either!the chance of taken the life of another person, to me, far exceeds the fear I have of loosing my on life.
