2013 Chevrolet Tahoe Owner Comments

While driving around 60 mph the car does a massive shake. Check engine light comes on, stabilization turns off, traction controls turns off and engine power is reduced first to 10mph and could not get more than 30mph. I was almost hit by an 18 wheeler due to my sudden stop. The SUV is now in engine power reduced mode.

The contact owns a 2013 Chevrolet Tahoe. While driving 40 mph, the vehicle hesitated and lost power as if it would stall without warning. The air bag light illuminated and the vehicle did not respond when the accelerator pedal was depressed. The contact also stated that the radio powered on and off. The doors locked and unlocked on their own. The contact pulled the vehicle over, waited a few minutes, and proceeded to drive. The failure recurred. The vehicle was not taken to a dealer. The manufacturer was not made aware of the failure. The failure mileage was 40,000.

2013 Chevrolet Tahoe. Representative from the city writes in regards to problems with police fleet. The consumer stated after the new engine calibrations were installed on seven vehicles, less than 24 hours later, the problem continued, along with additional issues and problems that were never experienced before. Specifically, the vehicles lunged forward aggressively after coming to a stop. GM eventually removed the calibrations. The issue with the vehicles stalling, lack of power, idle surging and hesitation upon acceleration, continued.

While driving the speedometer is showing 0 on both the digital display and analog needle display. Also it is showing that the vehicle is in park. Only by pulling over and starting the car up again (~5 minutes), the problem goes away.
