About GMC Yukon
GMC Yukon, as a full-size SUV, has been produced by General Motors' GMC Division since 1992. Before the first GMC Yukon was introduced as Chevrolet Tahoe's rebadged version in 1992, it was called as GMC Jimmy. Up to now, GMC Yukon has been manufactured through four generations for over 20 years. Sharing the same production platform, GMC Yukon is as popular as Chevrolet Tahoe in North America.
The third-generation GMC Yukon (2007-2014) received a redesign and debuted in late 2005 as a 2007 model. It then offered GMC Yukon Denali, GMC Yukon XL 1500 and GMC Yukon XL 2500 and GMC Yukon Hybrid equipped with 2-wheel drive and 4-wheel drive system. As a SUV with specious room, GMC Yukon got powers from engines ranging from 4.8 L V8 gasoline engine to 6.2 L V8 gasoline / E85 engine as well as 4-speed and 6-speed automatic transmissions; and hybrid version was powered by 6.0 L V8 hybrid gasoline / electric engines mated to CVT automatic transmission.

GMC Yukon Common Problems & Maintenance Tips
The most wonderful experience of owning an SUV would be driving freely through high mountains or crossing over rapid rivers. But if you really use GMC Yukon in this way, many problems would come for it:
The first one would be the bad gas mileage. I believe it is not good news for GMC Yukon drivers who actually have encountered this trouble in using already. Adding fuel frequently is a heavy economic burden for every GMC Yukon drivers. What's more, they also complained that engine performance suffered as hesitant acceleration, hard starting, and rough idle, whining noises as well as illuminated Check Engine Light. If you do not want to waste any money in your Yukon, you should make sure the spark plug, fuel filter, fuel pump and oxygen sensor working fine all the time.
The second one is suspension and transmission problems. According to experienced GMC Yukon drives, broken shift cable caused difficulty shifting gears are common on the vehicle. While excessive vibration, nose diving while braking or leaking fluid as well as clunking noises are most possibly caused by faulty shock absorber and control arm. If you do not want to face with driving danger as suspension failure would also result in longer stopping time, you have every reason to inspect these parts in your Yukon.
It is for sure that every auto part kept in order is the best shape of GMC Yukon. However, it is very hard to make every part operate perfectly. In GMC Yukon, what you should pay extra attention to are parts such as seat belt, door handle, headlight, windshield wiper or wiper blade and so on. Seat belt is designed to protect occupants from harm in the vehicle brought by crush, collision or sudden movement, so replacing it once the pretensioner is activated is critical. Door handle is used for entering or exiting from the vehicle conveniently, once you feel it loose, swap it in case you may get stuck in the vehicle. Headlight is responsible for light road ahead in the early morning or dark night and works as a warning to other drivers or pedestrians on the road, if it dims, change it. Windshield wiper or wiper blade also should be replaced at least once half a year so that you have a better driving visibility all the time. Please remember to maintain them regularly and replace them as soon as possible if any parts work not as usual.
