Chevy Tahoe/GMC Yukon Hybrid



  • Ive had my tahoe hybrid 08' for about 5 yrs with nothing but issues. From door panels falling off to door locks not working and mainly engine problems. Had to be towed twice when my wife was out of state with the kids for lifter problems, on the same trip. First dealership said it was the oil pan filter and sender, and replaced lifters. After about a month she went to pick up and it broke down again, stranding her in the middle of nowhere. Towed to another dealer and they replaced lifters again. We have had it shut off on us numerous times once on highway, the RPM's will climb up until we put it in neutral, it will lunge forward or stutter so bad it almost dies, and during hot weather which is always(we live in las Vegas) it idles very rough it seems its going to die. Every time we take to dealer they say if its not doing it then they can not check it. Now that its 2 month after warranty and 3k miles passed parts warranty for the lifters, they say they can "recreate" the issue at $130 for diagnostics. And that it might be more if they need to dig deeper at a cost over $1k! Not including amount to fix. For a $54k SUV, its a POS. If they don't fix, i will sell it and never buy GM or GMC every again and will tell everyone I can about all issues. Seems to be a very common problem with Chevy the more i read.

    diagnostics should show all codes and the way it is running. I take it higher than the dealer right to GM. Hope you kept all invoices and comments from the dealer.
  • I have a 2008 Yukon Hybrid purchased new and now have about 130K miles on it. I am a big fan of my car. I recently have been experiencing stalling issue with my car. It only happens when I am at a stop light or stop sign and I want to move forward. The car does not move forward it has to take moment 10 seconds or more. The most severe situation is a I had to put the car back into park and them back into drive for it to re-engage and move forward. The car does not have issues grabbing gears at higher speeds . I was wondering if anyone else has had this issue.

    Thank you for your time.

    I recently purchased a 2008 Tahoe hybrid and I want to change the headlights, drl's, and parking lamps from the stock bulbs to halogen. Is this safe and does anyone have a recommendation on what type, brand, etc.?
