Vehicle steering shaft clicks and pops when wheel is turned, as if steering shaft is binding. Haptic feedback is felt in the steering wheel during each instance of a click or pop. Dealership replaced steering shaft bearing, retainer spring, and seat and problem has returned. Online forums have shown numerous other GM owners experiencing the same problem. Some have reported steering wheel location sensor is catching. Others have reported entire steering shaft must be replaced and claim it is on national back order. This is not only a nuisance, but creates consternation over safety of steering. Issue should be investigated for possible safety recall.

The contact owns a 2015 GMC Yukon. While driving various speeds, the steering wheel became difficult to turn. The contact had to apply force to the steering wheel in order to steer the vehicle. The vehicle was taken to a dealer. The contact was unsure about what part was replaced; however, the failure recurred on numerous occasions. The vehicle was taken back to the dealer who was unable to duplicate or repair the vehicle. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The failure mileage was 1,000.

After owning the 2015 Yukon denali for 6 months, I have to say this vehicle has its flaws. The 4WD system is in for service already after 9000 miles. Not the kind of quality I would have expected on an $80,000 SUV. At the moment, the vehicle is only a 2 wd system and seems very difficult to drive and turn. Also, the intellilink software is very "buggy" and needs many updates. On several occasions, the entire touchscreen will go blank while driving down the road. This is cause for concern and is a major driving distraction.
