Here is a summary someone gave to me:

This bulletin is being revised to add Suburban and Yukon XL models. Please discard Corporate Bulletin Number 02-05-26-002 (Section 05 - Brakes).
Some customers may comment on a scraping noise from the rear of the vehicle while driving. The noise may be intermittent.
Condition may due to the parking brake shoe contacting the drum in hat rotor without the parking brake being applied, causing premature wear on the shoe lining.
Replace the parking brake shoe and install a new designed spring clip retainer. Follow the service procedure below to correct this condition.

#2140 of 3279 Exhaust tips vs. the whole Corsa cat-back, ctd.
Aug 28, 2003 (12:45 am)
I have not seen dyno results that show enough of a hp/torque improvement on the Vortec 6.0 liter engine to justify spending for the full cat-back system. If/when the exhaust fails after the extended warranty has lapsed, then I will be in the market for the Corsa cat-back system. Until then, I am quite happy with the dual tips.

Lobsenza, thanks for the TSB info. I did not replace the redesigned clip when installing the new shoes since I did not know about the recall. The linings I replaced at 40k miles were worn out indicating that they do drag on the shoe, so this is definitely a problem.
#2142 of 3279 "DENALI SS" on EBAY" ***Looking For Opinions***
Aug 30, 2003 (7:26 pm)
I was curious to know if anyone has checked out EBAY lately. There are two “Denali SS” models out for sale. I like the equipment installed and plan to call the dealership to see if I could get one built. However, I wanted to poll the board first to get some honest feedback regarding the trucks looks, equipment, price, etc….
Let me know what you think about the “Denali SS”
#2143 of 3279 **UPDATE**: BBB AUTOLINE IS CRAP AND WORKS ONLY IN GM'S BEST INTEREST
Sep 03, 2003 (9:36 pm)
I just got the results back from arbitration yesterday! In summary, I DID NOT GET WHAT I WANTED OR BETTER YET “WHAT I DESERVED”!!!
The verdict is as follows:
Give GM 30 days to fix your concerns. When repairs are completed, drive the vehicle for 30 days and if you are not satisfied we will reconveign the hearing and I will come up with my decision.
This is how it went down:
The hearing lasted 4 hours. (Wow, it was long) I gave my side of the case; GM gave their side of the case BLAH BLAH BLAH. GM did nothing but put up smoke and mirrors. Their main case was claiming that I purposely left me vehicle in the shop to create a paper trail. Please Note: Every time I put my Yukon Denali in the shop I get a Ford Focus to drive. Why would I NOT want to pick-up my car? Anyhow, I used the following problems to support my case:
Noisy drive train: The arbitrator drove my vehicle and recognized the problem. She put in her report that the problem is a manufacture defect and that it impairs the safety, use and value of the vehicle.
Flickering lights: The arbitrator drove my vehicle and recognized the problem. She put in her report that the problem is a manufacture defect and that it impairs the safety, use and value of the vehicle. I also submitted my “Police Warning” issued to me for having a unsafe vehicle. She acted like it was no big deal that I am driving an unsafe vehicle in the laws eyes.
Tranny hesitates when shifting 1st to 2nd: The arbitrator drove my vehicle and recognized the problem. She put in her report that the problem is a manufacture defect and that it impairs the safety, use and value of the vehicle.
GM had their rep drive a new Denali to the hearing to support their case. Reason being, GM claims that all my problems are CHARACTERISTICS of all Denalis. After driving my vehicle, we all drove the new Denali that the rep brought. It performed perfectly. No noises from the drive train, no flickering lights, and tranny shifted perfect. The arbitrator commented to GM and myself that my vehicle has several problems and the vehicle GM brought had NO problems.
Overall, I felt as if I won my case. She recognized all my problems and noticed that the other vehicle (the one GM brought to the hearing) was flawless. Therefore, I was happy because I felt GM’s vehicle helped prove my case. Furthermore, the GM rep stated that he did not want to work on my vehicle for fear of making the problems worse. With all this said the ruling was to allow GM one more chance to fix my truck. Let me state for the record that they have has 3 attempts at fixing my truck and a 4th and FINAL ATTEMPT to fix the truck. Now, the arbitrator wants me to give them a 5th chance to fix the truck.
Any suggestion would be helpful. I guess that GA Lemon Law is next because I do not want them touching my truck anymore. The BBB works in GM favor!!!

Thanks for sharing your story. I hope everything goes your way even after the "5th" attempt. I looked at the Denali the other day and really like it but your story makes me very leary. If I get one, I'll do a "major" test drive!
Good luck, Mark156

Their main case was claiming that I purposely left me vehicle in the shop to create a paper trail.
And where exactly would you be had you not created a paper trail? Did creating a paper trail cause the defects? Amazing!

Any comments with regard to towing with '03 Denali XL with 6.0 litre.I am looking to purchase this type and pull a 28ft trailer.(5000lbs).Mostly in midwest,flatlands.Thanks.
#2147 of 3279 Towing/ 04 Changes
Sep 04, 2003 (9:44 pm)
I tow a 35oo boat trailer without difficulty. GM has a 24 hour test drive. Take one out and bring it to the trailer dealer and test the 2 together. I did that with the DXL and my trailer prior to purchase.
The 04 Denalis get the exhaust flange eliminated in 03.
#2148 of 3279 no one in the market?

We have a Prices Paid discussion but it's empty. Are Denali's that easy to get at discount or something?
