#52 of 242 Changed My Mind on the 2007 Yukon XL
Jul 19, 2010 (3:09 pm)
Wow. I was just about to purchase a 2007 Yukon XL SLT with 38,000 miles on it. After reading all of these posts, I am going to pass . Has anyone narrowed down the mfg. dates of the defective engines? Are there any of the 2007 Yukon XL 's that don't use oil?
As far as a spec. for a vehicle to use oil, what a joke. I have a 2004 Yukon XL with 70,000 miles. I don't change the oil for 7,500 miles, and only check it once, usually when it is getting towards 5,000, never a problem. In fact, my Audi and my Honda Civic don't use oil, at all. My old GMC Envoy never used a drop.
I hope the people on here can get the issue resolved.

i too have a 2007 yukon with 66,000 miles and i am having a major problem with the oil usage. i have took the car to the dealer for the so called oil consum. test. however, both times i have found the car over filled with oil after the oil change by at least 1 quart. anyone guess why this may be??? my vechile is using about 1.5 to 2 quarts every oil change. i have talked to gm custmer service several times nothing has been done yet. most of the time upon calling gm i never get a call back. not the kind of service i thought i would get when buying this vechile. i have to say i very upset and would like to know what i can do about this issue?????

#55 of 242 RECALL????
Jul 24, 2010 (5:15 pm)
I just don't understand why a recall can not be done on these yukons. This is not just one or two cars doing this. Just on this post there a quite a few of us having problems.

Now that my dealership says they have fixed the problem, how do I know it's fixed unless we do another oil consumption test? Should I ask dealership to do one?

What did your dealership do to your car? I'm still waiting on that recall I was told was going to take place at the end of July or in August. The only thing I got was a recall about the chrome on the door handles.

I don't know much about cars but it had to do with lifters? I have had the door handle problem and paid to have the passenger side replaced a couple of years ago a few weeks ago I cut myself on the drivers side door handle but I am now over 100.000 miles

I too have a 2007 Yukon with an oil consumption problem that GMC is not taking serious. Only have 55,000 miles on it. It began about 40,000 miles. Oil consumption test has been done and all they will tell me is it is acceptable based on GM oil consumption standards to have to add a quart of oil to it every 1000 to 1500 miles. I do not find this acceptable. The dealer just keeps saying the same thing. All service has been done by the dealer.Please advise with me.

I can tell you that if the oil consumption is 1qt or more for every 1K miles, it is not considered normal. As a matter of fact there are service bulletins that even show you this. If you read other posts here you will find out the SB number. GM even says 1 qt for 1K miles is not acceptable.
I had the very same issue and had to work through several fixes before they finally got it to stop using oil. There is a GM rep on this site that says she will help but I do not have any personal experience with her. Call GM customer service and start your ride. They will order an oil consumption test. Then if it fails then you will get to try one of the many fixes they try. I had a new PVC, then they cleaned out my Valve covers, then new heads, then they finally put in new pistons, rings, and rod bearings. It has been about two oil changes since then and it appears to have zero oil consumption now.
This took almost a year to complete and alot of my time to get it done. Good Luck. Remember the squeeky wheel gets the oil.

Well after all the oil consumptions, customer complaints to GM, and a promise of a fix this summer that never came, I finally ended up trading my 2007 Yukon XL to a Ford Expedition Limited EL which I actually like better. I was very discouraged by the lack of service from GM. They refused to fix the issue. When I finally traded my Yukon XL had 78,000 miles. It was nearing the end of my warranty so I felt it was better to get out while the getting was still good. However I will definitely not be purchasing another GM Product in the future!
