2003 GMC Yukon Owner Comments

problem #2

Dec 012003

Yukon 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 35,000 miles


The contact stated when making turns there was a screeching noise coming from the rear of the vehicle. In snowy conditions when the four wheel drive was engaged there was difficulty driving followed by another screeching noise when shifting from automatic to four wheel drive. The vehicle has been to the dealer for inspection. The dealer overhauled the four wheel drive, but noted all four tires were off balance and varied in size. This could possibly be the culprit of the screeching noise when turning. The tires have not been replaced.

problem #1

Yukon 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 2,600 miles
We purchased a 2003 GMC Yukon. Before it had reached 3000 miles the neutral light came on on the 4X4 unit. From there it would shift itself into 4 low. We have had it into the dealer a total of 6 times now and they have replaced one of the components 3 times, two of the other components once. After the secon D replacement it started showing neutral again on the 4X4 unit. It seems as though the problems do not arise until after 1000 miles. The dealership service department told me that they have had a lot of problems with these units. We are trying to do a buy back but GM is dragging things out and giving us a hard time.
