I had the same problem last Saturday. My 2021 Tahoe stopped running and I was unable to put it in neutral. Did not like seeing it dragged up on a roll back. Then bounced off when it arrived at the dealership. Dealer ordered a new fuel pump.

Would it not go into neutral?

Just curious…How many miles did you have on it?

I dropped my truck off at service this morning. Service advisor admitted that they have seen many issues with our SUVs. She even said they had new Tahoe's that wouldn't start on the lot! I told her about your situation, but we didn't discuss an actual fix. I don't think she was an actual service advisor, just someone helping check me in.
My service dept told me to keep my 19 Suburban because of all the engine problems. Said the launch of this gen Tahoe/Yukon/Suburban a was far worse than the last gen, which everyone seemingly complained about insistently.

This is exactly why I bought a 2019 Suburban in December of 2018. Didn't want to be on the bleeding edge of such a radical platform change.

GM is using the high profit margins from these vehicles to subsidize development of electric cars. This architecture is being abandoned so later years of this run may never be as dependable as the last generation. Sign of the times I guess.
