Hello everyone, my name is Chris. I’m a salesman at one of the largest Chevy dealers on the east coast. If you have any questions please feel free to ask. Please see below. All 21’s built after March 31st 2021 are safe, the supplier for the lifters has changed.

So where do I find the build date on my wife's Tahoe, and does that mean if it was built with the Sept 1 to March 31 window that the lifters will definitely fail?

No! Not at ALL. Only a small percentage of them are failing. It most likely will never happen. Your build date can be found on your invoice

I saw your post - I am contemplating a used 2021 tahoe - the build date was 9/14/20.......Obviously I am worried about this given the issues in the thread and the build date. Any idea what % of these are failing? If it makes it past 10K miles, does that mean it is less likely to fail - or still possible?

We purchased our Tahoe last December, going on 18000 miles and no issues. When I looked at the consumer guide release it said 4% of the engines across Chevy and GMC trucks were affected. My local dealer said they've seen some but it's not affecting everyone and if something should happen they would take care of us. Not sure if that helps.

my build date was ~Jan 21. @10k, the one side went bad. 17k, and there are intermittent misfires/rough idle, consistent with a possible pending failure on the (un-repaired) second side. Transmission valve body also went bad recently...

It's on the metal plate low on the door frame between front and rear door -- after you open the driver door. Look down low...There are around 3 plates there with info on them...tire pressure, another one with the date of manufacture (month and year) and another one I can't remember what info was on it...

My build date was 6/20 - took it home on 7/30/2020. at 26,000 miles is when the lifter issue roared twice and it's now going back via the lemon law.

I'm getting my replacement in a couple weeks... If you were at 26k miles, I would have thought that would be beyond the lemon law time frame? Thought it was 2 yrs/24k miles (guess it would depend on state). Anyway good luck!
