The brakes on MY07 Yukon work intermittently. When driving the truck first thing in the morning at speeds of 15mph to 20 mph brakes fail to engage and have had several close calls.

Driving through town when the car started slamming into gear. Right before, the ABS warning light came on and the dash said "stabilitrack disengaged". car started beeping and lost power. When I was able, pulled over and shut down car. It would not start. Towed it to the dealer and they had difficulty diagnosing. Ultimately replace ip junction box and fp gateway. Same thing happened again 10,000 miles later.

While driving on surface streets, the yellow ABS warning came on, "stabilitrack" light came on. The warning lights started dinging, the transmission slammed between gears, the lights came and went and the door locks were going up and down continuously. Lost power also, pulled off and shot off engine. Truck would not restart as electrical system was dead. Same thing happened 10K miles earlier. This has happened 2times and the car only has 53,000 miles. Repairs took over 10 days as the engine was not communicating with the car. Replaced engine control module

My wife and I had just purchased a used 2007 GMC Yukon. Little did we know about the major issue the truck has with the reduced power reading that comes up. I really think that GMC needs to put out a recall for these issues. My wife was on her way home from a work meeting and driving on the freeway with her sister and my wife's and my daughter in the GMC Yukon and she was doing the speed limit and all of a sudden she didn't know what was going on. She called me and she was in a panic. She had to pull off the freeway and come to a complete stop and when she did the vehicle had died it turned off and she had our 2 month old daughter with out A/C and in 100 degree weather. This issue puts the people's families at risk that own these vehicles and also other drivers families at risk you can not replace a persons life if its taken away and the hardship it causes but you can replace a vehicle so why not come up with solution so the road may become a little bit of a safer place. When my wife had this happen other drivers were not courteous or understanding when someone puts their hazard lights on that something is wrong, they just kept flying past her. Now with several people having this same issue with the same GM make this issue should be resolved. I have looked up and saw Chevy doesn't have this issue and Chevy is the same company. If the national highway traffic safety association could create this recall and they could use the same part from Chevy then surely this issue would be fixed and it would be a safer vehicle. If you were a company owner wouldn't you want to stand by your companies production and create solutions if there were these common issues" wouldn't you want to help make the road a safer place by one little fix" it wouldn't

I will be driving and my truck will just lose power. I push on the gas pedal and it goes no where. I have to coast off the highway and then I can stop and turn it off for a few minutes then start it back up with the check engine light on. I have changed the tps 2 times, the entire throttle body, and the mass air flow sensor and it's still doing it.

Yukon 4WD 8-cyl

  • 101,000 miles


My engine speed reduced abruptly while traveling speed of 65mph on the freeway. This has almost caused an accident several times. A reduced engine speed, service stabilization track and service traction control signs come on. If I pull over and wait 1 minute it starts and doesn't do again for 15 minutes. Sometimes this doesn't happen for a week. I read forums and it appears to be a faulty throttle body, and only with GM vehicles, but GM fails to request a recall. Some have spent hundreds of dollars to replace, and it still does not fix the problem.

The GMC continues to randomly not start or deactivate the stabilitrack, anti-lock brakes were disabled, and the check engine light are all on. This problem happens almost every day and the dealer is unable to identify the source of the problem after several attempts.

Rear hatch/lift gate has no manual handle to open. When unlocking power locks rear hatch will not open, there is no way to open lift gate from inside or outside of vehicle. If an accident would happen there would be no way out of rear of vehicle. Rear hatch will not open at all, it is all electronic and will not open. This is a common problem for all GM SUV's. have contacted GMC and they don't seem to about issue.

The contact owns a 2007 GMC Yukon. The contact stated that the headlights would fail intermittently. The vehicle was not repaired. One month later while driving approximately 15 mph with the radio activated, the radio stopped working, the air conditioner stopped blowing cold air, and the instrument cluster lights were flickering off and on. In addition, the vehicle started to vibrate abnormally. The vehicle later stalled and was able to be restarted and taken to the dealer. The dealer was unable to duplicate the failure and there were no repairs. She had not contacted the manufacturer. The failure mileage was 42,000 and the current mileage was 42,030.

While driving the vehicle, heard a clicking/cracking/popping noise, smelled a strong odor of smoke and burning smell from the front passenger side underneath the glove box area. At the same time the widows, mirror, and electric locks on the passenger side of the vehicle would not operate. I stopped the vehicle and turned it off. I started looking down under the glove box area and could still smell a very strong burning smell coming from that area. Also the vehicle would not restart. The vehicle was towed to my local auto repair shop. The mechanic observed the same burning smell conditions and removed the wire box underneath the glove box passenger door area. He observed that all the wires were burnt, to include the metal plate that was burnt and charred from an apparent electrical fire. (pictures were taken of the area to include the burnt wires and charred metal) the mechanic stated that we were very lucky the whole car did not catch on fire and burn up. He showed me the damage and stated that where the wires run through a small hole in a metal plate appeared to rub through the wires causing it to short out and actually burn the wires and metal plate. He further stated that a rubber washer or using rubber instead of metal might have prevented the burning/fire.

The check engine/service stabilitrak/engine power reduced light comes on frequently yet the GMC dealer cannot pinpoint the problem. Potentially a connection to recall of cars equipped with heated windshield washer fluid feature. Did detect a slight odor shortly after using the windshield washer fluid and the indicator lights started flashing and the car slowed down considerably on the highway during inclement weather. Thus far nothing has corrected the problem; we are hoping to get the car back to our home state so the dealer can work on resolving this hazard.

Yukon 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 10,229 miles
The contact owns a 2007 GMC Yukon. While driving at highway speeds or lower, the transmission shifts very hard. There is also a harsh pounding sound coming from the transmission. All of the electrical components on the instrument panel failed. The dealer changed the crankshaft sensor. While driving, the contact cannot tell when the gear is in neutral. The speedometer displays inaccurate speeds and the air bag light illuminates. The plastic on the window fell off and the front driver's side door handle sticks when it is pulled, and will not go back in. The contact hears a rubbing sound coming from the steering column. The instrument panel cluster has been replaced and the check engine light would remain illuminated. The current mileage was 29,000 and failure mileage was 10,229. Update 09/10/08 the lug nut caps were missing, the check engine light was on. The gas cap was not sealing. The dealer replaced the gas cap. Updated 09/15/08.

II have had my 2007 Yukon since Sept 2006. Approx 3 weeks ago I began to have trouble getting the vehicle started. When turning the key, it had to be held for about 20-30 seconds before it would finally crank up. Vehicle has been taken to dealership 4 times and is currently still there. I have been told a variety of reasons for the way my car starts that it is a normal "extended start", that they cannot duplicate my problem, and that the vehicle was just programmed that way. I know they have heard the problem because the service manager stood by me while I cranked the vehicle to demonstrate the problem! if the car had a normal "extended start" or was programmed to strat like that it should have been doing it since I purchased the vechile in Sept 06 on not just starting to have the problem now in June 07.
