The braking is sluggish at low speeds, my wife has had several near misses because of this. It takes excessive brake pedal pressure to stop the vehicle and has a longer stopping range. This is dangerous and should be addressed by GM and the government Agency having jurisdiction over vehicle safety.

The contact owns a 2016 Chevrolet Suburban. While driving various speeds, the rpms fluctuated from high to low. The vehicle stalled and was towed to the contact's residence. The failure caused the vehicle to hesitate during acceleration. An independent mechanic diagnosed that the transmission was burned out. Ed rinke Chevrolet Buick GMC (26125 van dyke ave, center line, mi 48015, (866) 461-1170) was contacted and provided pricing and warranty information for a new transmission. The manufacturer was not contacted. The vehicle was currently at the independent mechanic's shop. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure mileage was 135,500.

2016 Chevrolet Suburban has a serious vibration issue. The vehicle vibrates when it stays at a constant and even speed. Seems like when it goes into the 4 cylinder mode. This vibration causes headaches and vertigo when we are on long trips. I have had it in the Chevrolet dealer service department several times and is currently there now. I have read where this is a common issue with this vehicle.

Since purchase, our vehicle has been towed into the dealership because it would not turn off and we had to disconnect the battery. The vehicle did that 2 more times after being towed in. It has had new motor mounts, new rotars, and has been in a GM service center 16 times. The most recent incident was when the vehicle died on a highway with 2 children in the car. Please see attached work history for the vehicle
