I know exactly what your going through. My 2004 Yukon only made it a little over 50k before my transmission failed. I to spent a lot of wasted time with GMC. At the end no help what so ever. I believe their using cheap plastic parts is the reason for the failed transmissions. I wish someone would file a class action law suit for this problem, then maybe someone from GMC will offer to help. Son sorry for what your going through now with the cost of living so high and now this unexpected expense..

Hi there. I have had nothing but problems with every GM tranny in a V8 vehicle I have owned, specifically the 4L60E. After replacing 3 (2 re-built by local transmission place; 1 at 120,000 and the other 2 with less than 20,000 miles on the re-built), I investigated further and found MONSTER TRANSMISSION in Florida. My local Tranny repair guy quoted yet another $1600 for a "re-built" with a 6 month warranty. Monster Trans custom built me a replacement BRAND NEW with free shipping (to a business, in this case my mechanics garage;) with a 3 year unlimited miles warranty. The trans was built with Corvette servos, clutches, etc. and HEAVY DUTY internals to handle 600HP and and at least 600 LB-FT of torque!! They built it to suit my needs of mild towing and not wanting to ever deal with it again. They send a case of FULLY SYNTHETIC FLUID ($170), deep dish extra capacity pan with fins for additional cooling. There customer service is phenomenal and the installed product is UNREAL!! nice firm shifts that hit like a shotgun. they built it within a few days and had it shipped super quick! ALL FOR $1700.00!!!!!!! Plus my mechanic removed old and re-installed THE MONSTER for under $300! HOPEFULLY THIS POSTS FOR ALL TO READ PASS THE WORD MONSTER TRANSMISSION.COM!!!!!!! They also do trannys for just about everything and test everyone in an actual vehicle before they ship it! -Joel S.

Took it car to Dealership they said that the annoying bump when you stop from the transmission and jolt you get when excelarating is something they cannot fix. It is just the way they are built. WOW. It looks as if they do not want to fix or they are avoiding a nasty recall. This car is dangerous to drive with transmission winding up and winding down. Kerplunk!!!!
Asked them to do repurchase or a warranty extension, but I just wanted it fixed....

Mark my words their's going to be a recall or a class action suit brought against GMC regarding the transmissions, because their using cheap parts!! GMC is getting richer and were getting poorer because were constantly putting money into this junk their producing!! Shame on you GMC!!!

My 2006 Yukon XL's transmission just went out also. It began slipping, got worse on hills, and then wouldn't go into reverse. With only 57,000 miles on it. We had swore off GM for a long time but decided to give them another try. Bad move. Nothing but bad experiences with all the GM's we have ever had. Another $2400 repair. Like others have posted, I refuse take this to the GM dealer where they will put the same inferior parts back in.

All of you giving all of your information to these "customer service reps"... how do you know that these people are valid and not just stealing information from you?? Thanks.

Good morning truckguy66,
You are wise to be cautious with sharing information over the internet. In addition to asking the moderator(s) on Edmunds about our legitimacy, the email addresses we ask forum members to send information to have either "gm.com" or "gmexpert.com" as domain names. If you are still hesitant with this, you can always get in touch with GMC Customer Assistance at 800-462-8782.

Smart to be concerned, at least on 99% of the net.

I just need opinions & some feedback. I have a 2007 Yukon SLT and last week Mar 8th I took my Yukon in to have the Tranny serviced and this Thurs on the freeway my tranny went. I have 75000 miles on it and I feel that it was something they did but of course they wont fix it. I understand I am out of warranty I just think they should step up and fix it because I just had it in for the tranny service they have been bugging me to do. Please give me feedback and possibly some advice of how I should handle it. Thank you
