The 2022 Chevy Tahoe is a full-size SUV meant to carry the largest families. The automaker claims that it is “impossible to ignore.” However, what can’t be ignored are the problems it creates. This large SUV seems to have a defective electrical system, malfunctioning fuel system and failing powertrain.

Problems with the Electrical System

With a family-centered vehicle, it’s imperative to have all of the technologies working well, or the natives could become restless.

One Edmunds review states it perfectly. “I picked up a brand new 2022 Tahoe Premier on Monday. On Tuesday I had to take it back for service. The infotainment system does not work! This apparently is a known issue, but as of today there is no fix.”

However, a non-functional infotainment system seems to be the least of the issues. Service Bulletin #PIT5869 also says that the air conditioning system can blow warm air because the wiring in the front floor console is defective. A warm cabin filled with a multitude of people is one thing that is certainly “impossible to ignore,” so Chevy got it right there.

Problems with the Fuel System

The fuel system is responsible for moving the gasoline to the engine for power. When it doesn’t work correctly, danger follows.

That’s the case with the structural issues outlined in an NHTSA complaint. “The contact owns a 2022 Chevy Tahoe. The contact stated that several days after purchasing the vehicle she was informed by an individual that there was something hanging down from underneath the vehicle. … inspected underneath the vehicle and saw that the fuel tank strap hanger was not installed properly and was hanging down underneath the vehicle. …. had the vehicle towed to a local dealer who confirmed that the front fuel tank strap was not properly installed. The mechanic installed new fuel tank straps and the vehicle was repaired. The contact was awaiting a full inspection before going to retrieve the vehicle. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure. The failure mileage was approximately 353.”

Sadly, the automaker isn’t discussing this problem in any of the bulletins. Instead, Service Bulletin #PIT5448G talks about how the vehicle could stop running after idling for 2.5 hours because of a safety mechanism. In some vehicles, the time is actually just one hour. Either way, shouldn’t the technicians already know about this? Is it really necessary to create a bulletin telling mechanics about this safety feature? Furthermore, how many people are complaining about their car shutting off after idling for 2.5 hours? This doesn’t seem as important as having a fuel tank strap missing, now does it?

Problems with the Powertrain

A final look at the 2022 Chevy Tahoe’s powertrain reveals even more issues that can’t be overlooked.

This is what was written in another NHTSA complaint. “The vehicle has stalled three times since I bought it a week ago. I will be driving and the engine will stall, putting the vehicle into neutral gear. The dashboard will then instruct me to press the power button, and when I do the vehicle restarts and will be in park. It has happened once while driving on the interstate and twice while making turns into oncoming traffic. When I go to accelerate there will be no acceleration, the vehicle will just be in neutral with no warning.”

It seems that the 2022 Chevy Tahoe is shaping up to be as defective as previous models. In fact, it wasn’t that long ago that the vibration in Tahoe models was so bad that it created a name for itself, known as the “Chevy Shake.” There have even been class-action lawsuits related to the problem. How long will it be until lawsuits are formed because of the stalling issue? It’s safe to assume that these concerns will become “impossible to ignore.”

    After first oil change at the dealership where we purchased the car (I-35 & Inwood Rd in Dallas), our 2022 Chevy Tahoe is shaking, check engine light came on, ESC light, service traction light as well as other lights came on. Having to toll the vehicle back to the dealership for service. By the way, this dealership has no loaners. Seems they are so Friendly!

    I bought a 2022 Tahoe LS on 2/28/22. After getting it home my neighbor asked me if it had been in an accident. He pointed out that the driver’s side fender does not fit. It sticks out more than an inch farther than the door and none of the lines match up. It looks like it was in an accident and had a bad body shop repair. I did not see that when I picked it up. I wasn’t looking for something like that. I was dazzled by the new Tahoe I just bought and was told it had been through a Pre-Delivery Inspection. I trusted that the dealer had looked it over. I took it to the dealer. I was told that it was ok. The passenger side looks perfect, so I do have a comparison. It looks terrible. Not sure how this passed quality control.

    We purchased a 2022 Tahoe and it started having issues a month ago. Air bag sensors came on and all the lights. We couldn’t get the lights off. Onstar was no help. Just yesterday, the message came on service ESC system. Engine light came on and traction and front collision lights on the dashboard. We are taking it to them tomorrow for service. We just purchased it 11/13/21. This is awful. There are no recalls either. We may need legal help if they don’t get this together.
