    bought a loaded chevy tahoe now im off to the mudbug friday

    well ive worked on my old van for the last 5 days straight instead of squeezing a few more mph's out my ski like i should have been doing.

    anyway 36hrs before leaving for the bug the dam van overheats again.
    long story but i roll into the chevy dealer with steam coming from the hood and water pissing everywhere.

    and there it was.
    A fully loaded chevy tahoe 4x4 with xm,onstar,dvd,lcd,leather,sunroof,etc,etc,etc. So now im in debt for the next six years but IM NOW DEFINATLY ROLLING TO THE BUG FRIDAY MORNING.

    did it have a wobbly knock inside the steering column ever? TWO suburbans in a row, they both got it.

    the 2000 Sub has the rockers tickin away and some piston slap... in 2005 it wouldn't start until u gave it gas and tried 3 times, needed a new fuel system... traded it in for a 2005... totally different ride and truck, alot changed since the first year release 2000... but still got the damn steering knocking inside going on with 15,000 miles on the thing.

    I got the same thing w/ my '05 silverado... Only can feel it once in a while. Usually only notice a ton after getting back into my truck and riving home after being gone all week out of town. Otherwise it seems to come and go - really noticable around bumpy turns.

    Scary stuff.
    You guys are mirroring my experience with my 2002 Tahoe 5.3

    I have NO PLANS to return to a GM product until they fix the QUALITY ISSUES with their product.

    I've owned ONLY GM products since I was 16 years old. Never thought I would worry about it, until the dealer REFUSED to write up my pistonslap noises at 16,000 miles. They knew. They still know.

    That engine failed at 65000.

    yea highway driving u don't feel it at all. any it even seems hit or miss... but man, you get around in the turns and in poorly paved roads, you can't get your mind off the bouncing and knocking u feel in the steering wheel... sucks to have a new truck do this, but i mean nothing is broken persay or acting out of the norm. I wonder if they have a fix for it yet, or what they would say if u brought it in and described the symptom. they'll probably tell ya they never heard anything like that before from any other customers, lol

    we've had 4 suburbans.... 1990, 94, 2000, 2005 ....... the 2 most recent ones had the weirdest characteristics as we're talking about.

    00 has piston slap, steering knock, rockers ticked

    05 has steering knock

    90, 94, 00 ALL had to have the A/C units completely replaced, we'll see how long the 05 A/C makes it


    I got myself a 2005 GMC Envoy last year.... i gotta say the difference between a GMC and a Chevy is kinda night and day. I love my Envoy and have had no problems with it so far, and i give it a pretty hard beating all day long everyday. I looked at Trailblazers initially, got in an Envoy at a dealership and never went back to the Chevy dealer for the TB.
