2016 Chevrolet Tahoe Owner Comments

problem #5

No option to disable (only) the hands free lift gate feature. An open lift gate can be triggered by children helping load/unload the rear of the Tahoe causing the heavy liftgate to begin to close (or open). All power features of the lift gate may be turned off, but not just the hand-free feature (kicking foot under bumper). Gate has closed 3 times on my wife/children loading/unloading groceries. Vehicle parked, off and key fob in pocket of wife (near the rear of the vehicle). This is dangerous for children especially.

Vehicle parked in lot on 8-18-16. When we came out of store, the Tahoe had rolled into another spot. Two cars were damaged. Incident on tape at the walmart store. Police report was filed. Tahoe was in drive. Two of us had exited the vehicle and collected several shopping carts, so people would not damage their vehicles. Third person exited the vehicle. If left in drive, (electric start) no bells or alarms went off. Doors weren't locked as person in back seat was able to exit. We were in the store for about 15 minutes. On video, the Tahoe was in its spot for quite a while before rolling back. My wife had the vehicle at the time of the incident. There were several witnesses.

When driving, driver and passengers get severe headaches, dizziness, and disorientation. The car also vibrates quite a bit. The pressure inside the cabin can be felt upon turning on the vehicle, and opening the windows does not help. The sensation almost feels magnetic. The original tires failed a road balance test and were replaced. This did not help the issue.

Tahoe has a vibration when it shifts into V4 continues from 40mph through 55 or when you push on the accelerator. Have had it in shop they resealed the bows in the roof, rotated tires, checked the exhaust nothing has fixed. I think the problem is in the motor with unburned gases when it shifts into V4.

When driving my new 2016 Chevrolet Tahoe, I am experiencing a booming noise over bumps in the road and experiencing severe pressure and pain in my ears from some sort of pressure created in the vehicles cabin. The pain is unbearable, I cant drive more than 10 minutes due to the pain in my ears while driving.
