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

Chris thank you for the information. My wife and I love the vehicle, but I must say as stalwart as I am about it, the constant chatter on Facebook was becoming a concern.

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.
