2003 GMC Yukon Owner Comments

problem #4

Apr 262006

Yukon 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 28,185 miles


: the contact stated the steering shaft was replaced under recall January 2005. While driving at various speeds and when the steering wheel is turned there is a popping and grinding nose. There is also an extreme amount of play in the steering wheel. The vehicle was taken to the dealer where the shaft was greased. This did not repair the problem. The shaft will need to be replaced to fix the problem. The NHTSA recall information is not available.

While driving 65 mph and pulling a trailer vehicle stalled. Prior to stalling there was some hesitation and jerking as if not getting fuel to engine. The dealer took vehicle to dealership in Arizona, and fuel pump had to be replaced. This was the second occurrence for fuel pump problem. Also, experienced steering problem. The steering would be sticking, and it would jam when making turns either left or right. The mechanic at dealership had to replace a seal in column shaft of steering wheel. The light clunk noise in the steering, low voltage, and insufficient fuel pressure on aceleration intermittently.

Excessive "play" in steering column of 2003 GMC Yukon, after 26,000 miles and 8 months of driving was repaired under warranty or maintenance service agreement. Dealer indicated that repair involved a lube kit for "interim steering shaft". dealer advised that GMC issued a maintenance circular regarding this problem, which was caused by a defect or mistake by factory. Owner contacted GMC Consumer Affairs. A representative from detroit stated that no government recall issued on this specific vehicle/VIN#, but that perhaps GMC had issued a "special policy" to address this problem. GMC policy on "special policy" problems is to wait for maintenance problem to manifest itself and be idenrtified by owner, instead of informing owner and/or taking preventative maintenance.
