The 2007 Chevy Tahoe provides seating for eight to nine people and optional four-wheel drive to assist with adverse conditions or off-road driving. Like all vehicles, the 2007 Tahoe is not immune to mechanical problems. One recall has been issued for 2007 Tahoes, and two other known problems have been reported.
A malfunction in the 2007 Chevy Tahoe's electrical system caused General Motors to recall those models that had a heated windshield washer fluid system. The circuit board for the washer fluid heater can short-circuit, causing the system to overheat. The overheated system can cause other electrical systems in the vehicle to fail. In some cases, the overheating washer fluid system caused vehicle fires. The recall for Tahoes with the heated washer fluid system began in September of 2008. A Chevy dealer can install, free of charge, a new wiring harness with an in-line fuse to prevent a short circuit.
Chevy Tahoes from 2007 have been reported to occasionally experience severe problems with the automatic transmission, according to MSN Autos. The 4L60E/4L65E transmissions can completely fail and need to be replaced with a new transmission. The 4L60E/4L65E transmissions are used only in the 2007 Chevy Tahoe LS two-wheel drive models, which come with the 4.8-liter engine instead of the 5.3-liter engine standard in other 2007 Chevy Tahoes.
Chevy Tahoes from 2007 with the optional rear parking assist have occasionally had problems with the sensors failing, according to MSN Autos. The rear parking assist system aids the driver in parking maneuvers that require backing up the vehicle. The sensors let the driver know if any objects, such as other vehicles, are near the Tahoe's rear bumper. One or all of the rear parking assist sensors for the parking assist system can experience a short circuit, causing them to only occasionally work or to not work at all.
