problem #9

Jan 212005

Tahoe 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 103,000 miles
While lowering driver's power window a snap occured and the window fell to the bottom. I contacted my local repair center. They informed me that it was a dealer only item. That the entire regulator assembly would have to be replaced. I spoke to the dealership and they informed me they had gone through hundreds! I veiwed the broken item and the steel cable seemed to be a design flaw, allowing water to settle at cable entrance. Why replace the entire regulator $235.91?

Rear windows intermittently would not work and then both failed at the same time. N eeded to replace both motors and regulators.cost of repair exceeded $425. Apparently there is a service bulletin on this and a known defect like this should be covered by the manufacturer.

Tahoe 4WD

  • Automatic transmission
  • 60,000 miles
While the van was parked in the driveway with the engine running toddler poked head out of the rear passenger side window, and put hand on the door arm rest, where the power window controller switch was located. The window started going up, toddler paniced and pushed down harder on the controller switch, and window continued going up and chocked the toddler. Consumer felt that a child proof device should be installed in all of the windows to prevent such incident from occurring.

Tahoe 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 21,004 miles
The two rear power windows on my 2000 Chevy Tahoe developed internal intermittent shorts at the exact same time. I have also experienced trouble with the two front power windows not working at times. The dealership stated they have seen prior problems with the power windows in the Tahoe's. my vehicle only had 23751 miles on it at the time the back window motors were replaced. I was charged over $400 for these repairs. It seems to me the problem with the motors is a factory defect and I shouldn't be held liable for the expense of replacement.

Neither one of the electric passenger windows will work. One will work at times and then at other times it will not. The window will not go down or up. This could purpose a problem especially with people with small children. You would have to break a glass to get in the passenger windows if needed. Chevrolet should fix this problem as it is a recurring problem in the Tahoe. I would be glad to know they are willing to fix this problem.

The window regulator on the passenger side my 2000 Tahoe has broke twice. The regulator's cable rusted out the first time. This second time I've just left it alone. I'm just glad it stay stuck in the closed position. My complaint is that I have to buy the whole unit including the motor with the regulator, and its very expensive. My extended warranty only covers the motor not the window regulator but 9 time out 10 its going to be regulator, what a scam. When the vehicle was less than two years old the rear passenger window went out. The rear passenger doors hinges squeak and grind. I've already had the right rear passenger door hinge replaced, now the left rear passenger door hinge is getting worst.
