  • Love it, but it's not perfect - 2015 GMC Yukon
    By -

    Got my SLT April 2014. In the heat of summer, started having problems with AC. As time went by, the AC was taking longer and longer to cool. Took to dealership and was told there was no known defects and sent on my merry way without any action. Short time later, AC gave out completely. By the time I went the second time they finally did have instructions. Apparently it had too much freon, factory defect. Flushed and refilled freon. AC working fine now, but I still feel there's something wrong with it. When it's on full blast the vehicle shakes, almost like it wants to turn off, but RPM'S don't change and it stops when AC is off. Have taken it a couple of times and they insist it's normal. The platform in rear is a bummer, takes up too much space, very stupid idea. In spite of everything, I still love driving it, enjoy taking road trips.

  • Major Problems - 2015 GMC Yukon
    By -

    Yukon is comfortable and exactly what I wanted. Tons of room, drives great, exactly like a $75,000 SUV should. But I have had constant issues since I purchased it. Most recent was the full replacement of the engine at 22,500 miles and 10 months of ownership. I've had seat issues, popping in steering wheel, loud wind noise coming from the sun roof. The 4 wheel drive system has had 3 issues and a recall since I owned it. The gauges stopped working, the steps get stuck. GM hasn't taken ownership that I have a lemon and this car needs to be bought back or replaced. I've owned 2 other Yukon Denali's and this has been the only one that I've ever had problems with.

  • New Standards set for Full-Size Luxury SUVs - 2015 GMC Yukon
    By -

    The NEW, GM 2015 model Full-size SUVs indeed set new standards in this segment. I ordered out my Yukon Denali, which currently has about 8000 miles. I have had flawless performance and ZERO recalls or issues. The 6.2L/420HP V-8 is incredible. The fit and finish of this truck is amazing and the list of features is endless. The interior comfort and quietness at highway speed rivals any luxury sedan. I compared the new GM's against the other domestic and import brands in this market. Without any doubts, the structural integrity, interior materials, options and engines were were far superior in the GM lineup. As many predict, I agree that GM will continue to dominate the full-size SUV market!

  • Be Cautious - 2015 GMC Yukon
    By -

    Almost all 2015 Yukons/Denalis with AWD are having severe problems with the transmission. Basically, if you used the AUTO setting on the drive selector the trans will lock into 4WD and never come out. GM has no fix for this problem yet. Driving the vehicle like this is unsafe and makes a horrible racket. It might also damage the vehicle. Avoid any Yukon or Tahoe until the fix is found.

  • 2015 SLT - 2015 GMC Yukon
    By -

    Have had a new Yukon SLT for about a week - hardest part was finding one - much better looking than the Chevy Tahoe. Truck has been great to date. Driving home from the dealer (35-miles) at 71-MPH on cruise, the unbroken in truck did 21.3 MPG with air on (has towing package). The only thing I miss is my magnetic ride from my Tahoe LTZ. Other than that, far superior comfortand features.

  • Pent-Up Demand - 2015 GMC Yukon
    By -

    A couple of years late, it's finally here. It was definitely worth waiting for - it's a totally different car than the previous model. I've had the car for 2-1/2 months now and have 5100 miles on it, most of them highway miles. 80 - 85 mph is no problem, and it feels like 60. Smoothest and quietest vehicle I've ever owned. Magnetic Ride Control, improved insulation and active sound management really do work in this one. Highway mileage is impressive even at high speed. Best is 25 mpg so far (over a 50 mile distance driving with the wind). With no wind mpg is around 20. In town mpg is about 14, but average city/hwy so far is 17.2 mpg. Factory Continental tires get high ratings.

  • Very poor reliablity and GMC Service - 2015 GMC Yukon
    By -

    At 50,000 miles the transmission was replaced. At 55,000 the AC condenser was replaced costing $1000. At 60,000 miles the AC compressor went out costing another $1,000. My biggest fear is they are replacing the poor components with same design so they will all fail again at 50,000 to 60,000 miles. GMC service could car less when I talk to them about these problems on a $70,000 vehicle.

  • American make SUV a Great Value - 2015 GMC Yukon
    By -

    Yukon 2 wheel drive SLT is a great value at $58000 you can get everything you need with all the luxury appointments no need to pay $10k plus more for a Denali! I'm 4 months out of end of 3 year lease ending December 2017. In that time I've had no visits to dealership for repairs other than a few oil changes and a tire rotation. At 20k miles the tires are at half tread also the brakes that's surprisingly good I've never had a large vehicle in this weight go these miles without needing brakes and tires replaced. I love the quality and look of the interior, the comfort ride and luxury I get to enjoy and appreciate everyday I drive the traffic in the city or on trips to Vegas, Colorado or up and down the So. Calif coast. Great gas mileage on the road, no wind noise and smooth smooth ride. I love the active safety features, subtle but effective warnings for drifting out lane, approaching vehicle ahead to quickly and side view warnings for those hanging in your blind spots. I plan on leasing on new 2018 when my lease matures. Everything I needed and expected from this model was delivered as promised. Only suggestion for improvement would be to improve the off the line acceleration. Because I drive mostly city the pedal response can lag which is mainly due to transmission lag. I believe they plan an 8 speed tranny for 2018 which should remedy this issue.
