Collision alert on while in park. They also flash faintly while driving with nothing in front. All sensors clear of debris. This is a recurrent issue for which I was told it was cue related and that replacing the cue would fix. (recurrent issue) service person was able to see this problem as it happened issues with my escalate which include the collision alert displaying ( flickering ) ongoing. Hard to take pictures as it happens while driving transmission bangs low speed (recurrent issues) vehicle locked itself with the keys inside. My wife had to call me to get the spare set and unlock the truck. Theft attempted warning light that was triggered while I was driving and collision lights were being triggered as well I have additional doc I could send bu this system isn't allowing it. Thank you fernando

Buffeting sound and ear pressure like the rear windows are down, but occurs all the time at freeway speed with all windows up. Booming sound at slow speed. Can feel strange ear pressure like the stereo subwoofer is playing over most small road imperfections. The whole body "booms" exhaust droaning sound and ear pressure. When SUV switches into V4 mode exhaust creates a droaning back pressure sound which also creates pressure in occupants ears riding in vehicle. Note* GM bought back our 2015 Yukon and 2015 Escalade for these exact problems. The 2016 is no better. All the same sound and ear pressure issues. Have contacted GM and started a claim. At this point they have done nothing to fix, correct, or replace this vehicle. At this point I have purchased over $2200.00 in just over one year from GM, three new SUV's they all make these noises. During this time, have been in countless 2015 loaner Suburban's, Tahoe's, Yukon's and Escalade's everyone of this vehicles has this noise issue to some degree. Some better, some worse.
