#3171 of 3279 Extended Warranty Suggestions/Recommendations?
Dec 10, 2006 (5:40 pm)
My wife and I purchased our 2004 GMC Yukon on January 2, 2004, which means the 3-year factory warranty is about to expire. The vehicle has only 28,000 miles on it, and while we've only had a few very minor problems, I am considering buying an extended warranty, which I believe I still should be able to do. IAt one time, I was getting a lot of extended warranty offers in the mail, but I haven't seen any recently. I'd like any advice on my situation as well as what company you might recommend and what I should expect to pay. Thank you.

warranty I would buy. Major Guard. Dealt with third party warranty companies and with GM warranty. When it comes to warranty work after your 3/36 factory, in my opinion, you just can't beat having a GM extended warranty for your GM vehicle. You can approach any GM dealer and get quotes and purchase from whichever gives you the best price.
Best part about it is that you can have a Caddy dealer work on your Chevy and visa versa depending on which service department you like best.
Course it does cost more than most third party warrantee companies.

I have a 2004 Yukon Denali with about 70k on it. I recently signed up for the OnStar hands free calling. While it does come with a new number which is not nearly as convenient as using your current phone/number, OnStar does offer a modified call forwarding feature to the service. The call forward can either immediately forward your calls to your Onstar number or it can ring your current cell phone 4 times and then send to the OnStar number. Also, the call forwarding is a free feature, which is pretty attractive compared to the normal $.25 a call charge plus minutes that Verizon offers standard.
I have found the phone system works satisfactory. The voice recognition is good as long as the cabin is quiet (windows up, air conditioning vents not pointed directly at headliner mounted microphone). Also, it does have a name storage feature that is convenient. The main drawback for me is the inability to dial numbers while on a call, i.e. calling your bank, checking voice mail, or customer service. The system does have an option that allows you to speak single digits, however, you have to wait for OnStar to repeat the digit back to you and then confirm the digit. It works OK if you are only needing to dial a couple of digits, however, calling a bank or anything with more than three or four digits gets to be ridiculous considering you have to go through three steps to dial a single digit.
If you travel a lot and will be placing long calls to individuals, the system works great and I would recommend. However, if you will be placing many calls and having people return them you may have issues with the separate number. Also, when numbers ring to the OnStar, I rarely get a caller ID reading until three or four rings which basically makes the caller ID system useless.
I would still rather have this system than some aftermarket solution that requires a separately mounted display. In my opinion, those systems look cheap, don't match the interior, and never work as well as advertised.

I believe the only space you will possibly have a problem with is between the 2nd row of bucket seats. It is less than 12" I believe so it may not be a problem.
I have a 2004 Denali and that is the case with mine.
#3175 of 3279 Premium or regular gas?
Nov 15, 2007 (4:09 am)
My local service center suggested I use premium for my new 2007 Denali. I would love to hear the forums' experiences with the this and if owners noticed a difference. Especially if its worth it, with gas prices today.

-Disconnect the battery
-Disconnect MAF from filter housing
-Remove filter housing
-Remove nut holding bottle under the filter housing
-Disconnect the two hoses (return/supply)
-Remove nut located on bottom left
-Disconnect sensor switch on bottom
Was there design efficiency? No way!! It is a pain in the rear to remove

Why use premium if regular does not cause any engine knock or having any issue using the regular gas? I have a 2007 Denali as well, its been running just great with 87 regular; I did add super/premium unleaded once before, it did feel more power; but if fast 0-60 is what you want, try the Vett. "Quality" Regular gas should be good enough for regular driving in my opinion.

I have been trying regular in my 2008 Denali and it rides terrible with it, very sluggish and less responsive. I have been forced to use premium to have it ride how Iike it.
My 2005 Denali ran great on regular...
