I still own 99 Yukon, it is my first big truck that I am in love with and just want to keep it for fun, my 2010 Yukon VIN 1GKUxxxxxxxx2696 which is Certified and Major Guard protection plan with GMC, I am enjoying it, if any one complain about GMC, think about Toyota or Lexus or even Mercedes is no difference, I own 07 LX470 as well as 08 ML350, Denali is much better car and better design, feel the difference internal cheap material in the Toyota, special Honda. or if you think about Mercedes/Toyota being built in US or mexico instead of import from Japan or German....etc, they are no difference than GMC, things break down and life goes on.
#1065 of 1099 2003 Denali sat for 2+ years, mechanic claims fuel lines rusted ...
Aug 17, 2012 (8:46 pm)
My 2003 Denali sat (unfortunately) for approximately 2+ years (maybe 2 years, 3 months) without moving. It was recently towed (flatbed) and then towed again to a mechanic my father (not me) has been going to for years.
I asked him to replace the battery (which I provided) as well as make sure it was ready to run after sitting for 2+ years. He did not mention lubing the o-rings or priming the cylinders (cranking without ignition) before, draining the 2+ year-old gas, etc., etc., ... which had me feeling dubious about his expertise and/or "caring" from the get go.
Anyway, he came back to me a couple of days later saying that the fuel lines were corroded and it is leaking all over the place. I found that quite hard to believe considering the Denali had ZERO leaks (not a spot below it from where it was towed -- either time). I mentioned this to him and he said the stuff their adding to the salt during the winter has caused a great number of these to show up over the last year or two. The thing is, again this car sat (part of that time in a driveway) and was not driven in the snow, and the real kicker is, my area has seen little to no snow over the last two years.
So am I just out of my league here, or is he potentially full of it? I would really appreciate any insight someone with knowledge in this area could share.
#1066 of 1099 2007 Yukon Denali with a cracked dash
Sep 01, 2012 (9:22 am)
Let me start by saying, I LOVE MY RIG! I have had ZERO problems with it after buying new off the dealer lot. Two weeks ago, while driving home, I noticed my dash was rattling. When I looked, I had a 10" crack just above the instrument panel. How could this be? I condition my dash on a routine basis and use a sun shade. I jumped on the interent to try and find a solution and little did I know, this is a common defect as there is one internet blog site after the next about this issue. In researching, I learned that GM will take care of the issue with no money out of the cosumers pocket if you go the route of filing a claim. Several sites recommended reaching out to (IM NOT ALLOWED TO SAY) as he seemed to be able to get things done for the consumer. I emailed (THAT GUY) and he quickly assisted by "escalating" my claim to a regional specialist by the name of (ANOTHER GUY). (THE OTHER GUY) asked me to take my rig into (A REGIONAL CHEVROLET DEALERSHIP) to have it looked at. When I arrived at the dealership, (YET ANOTHER GUY) assisted me. I didn't tell him I had a claim pending. He said the crack was a common issue with the 2007 GMC / Chevrolet SUV's and he would charge me $500 to fix it. I recontacted (THE FIRST OTHER GUY) and told him what (THE SECOND OTHER GUY) had told me. (THE FIRST OTHER GUY) said he would call (THE SECOND OTHER GUY) and get back with me on Monday (THE FIRST OTHER GUY made it sound as if he was going to make everything right). On Monday, I got a call from (A FEMALE) (Calling on behalf of THE FIRST OTHER GUY). (THE FEMALE) was excited to tell me that they had settled my claim and I was only going to have to pay $500 to get my dash repaired. HUH? When I began to question (THE FEMALE ) about why I would have to pay money out of pocket for what was obvioulsy a documented defective cosmetic part, she was very far from professional. I could not believe that as a long time GM customer, I could not get this part covererd. I found out GM keeps files on every consumer: from the car you buy, every service you get and every complaint you lodge. I have bought every GM product I own new from the dealer. I have a mechanic in the fmaily who services my cars regularly and I have never filed a previous complaint. But apparantly, I'm not a loyal customer, so they would not fix the crack for free. So, to make this long story short, I could not be more dissapointed in GM. I didn't ask for this to happen, but since it did, I just wanted it fixed. I'm off my soapbox...
#1067 of 1099 2010 Yukon is a "DOG"
Sep 05, 2012 (9:09 am)
I bought my Yukon brand new, less than 200 miles when delivered to me. Now 2 years later and 25,000 miles it is a dog. Start up in the morning, drives just fine. But when the outside temperatures hover around 100 degrees and if I have been driving it for more than an hour it becomes a dog. Dangerous too, cannot accellerate fast enough to get out into traffic or cross an intersection. Taken it to the Chevy dealer here twice, no computer notifications or faults. Yes we knew that going in for the 2nd visit. By the way that is exactly where my Yukon is as I type this, and the service manager just called and said "we cannot find anything wrong". Hello, he and I had discussed the fact that some times intermitent problems dont record on the computer. I think some service techs get too reliant on their computer reads and forget to use good old common sense. There is something wrong with this rig.........so what do I do, get rid of it because they cannot fix it?
Anyone else had this problem?????

#1070 of 1099 Looking at a 2007 Yukon Denali XL...
Sep 24, 2012 (12:58 pm)
Hello, I am new to the forums so I apologize if this question is a recurring one. I am looking at a 2007 Yukon Denali XL with the 6.2L V8 SFI. The vehicle has 104,000 miles. I have just started reading about oil issues with the 2007's. Does anyone know if this applies to the engine size that I am looking at? Are there any other issues with the 2007's that I should be aware of? The seller provided a CarFax. Do you think the GMC dealership where it has been serviced would talk to me about it and give me the straight scoop on it? Is there a way I can run the VIN to see if this vehicle has had problems?
Thanks in advance!
#1071 of 1099 Headlamp locking ring
Sep 26, 2012 (6:53 pm)
I have an 05 Yukon xl. The low beam lamp locking ring is broken. Thus the high beam lamp will fall out. This is the only piece on the entire assembly that is held on with screws. Junk yards only have complete units and dealers do not sell this piece. A new assembly is $350.00. Not worth buying for this one flange. Is there anyone who sells this one part?

I have an 05 as well.. The air condenser sweats when running and the condensation is what is dripping.. This is completely normal. As long as your air is cold and it is humid outside then this will occurs.
You may see this from the rear as well if you run the back AC often.
