Common GMC Yukon Problems and the California Lemon Law

If your GMC Yukon has recurring problems that won’t go away, it may be considered a lemon.

Under the California Lemon Law, a lemon is a vehicle with recurring problems that will not go away, despite a reasonable number of repair attempts by authorized repair facilities. These problems must negatively impact the use, safety or value of your vehicle.

Many owners and lessees of GMC Yukon vehicles report problems that do just that. Learn more about common problems that 2013–Present GMC Yukon, owners and lessees report in their vehicles. If one of these problems repeatedly appear in your GMC Yukon, you may need to talk to a lemon law attorney about your case.

Steering Problems

Steering problems can make your GMC Yukon difficult to control and unsafe to drive.

Common GMC Yukon steering problems may include clicking, binding, rubbing or odd noises while turning, seizing of the steering wheel, unexpected surges, locking of the steering wheel, and unexpected loss of power steering. If your GMC Yukon has repeated steering problems, take it to a repair shop or your local dealership. The dealership or repair shop needs to be given a reasonable number of chances to repair the vehicle before it can be considered a lemon.

Engine Problems

If your Check Engine Light illuminates on your dashboard, it may be time to investigate your GMC Yukon for engine problems.

Complaints submitted to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reveal that common engine problems in GMC Yukon vehicles include shaking while idle, jerking, hesitation while accelerating, reduced engine power, engine stalling and vehicle shut downs. If you notice other engine problems occurring in your GMC Yukon, take it to an authorized repair facility to have your engine inspected.

Transmission Problems

If your GMC Yukon has repeated transmission problems like those described below, take it to a repair shop to have your vehicle checked out.

Transmission problems reported in GMC Yukons include vibration, hesitation, jerking, shaking and shuddering while shifting, lunges, hard shifts and transmission slips. These aren’t the only transmission problems your GMC Yukon could experience. If you notice other transmission problems occurring in your GMC Yukon that won’t go away, your vehicle may be considered a lemon.

Brake Problems

GMC Yukon owners and lessees have reported the following common brake problems: locked brakes, stiff brakes, brakes that smoke or emit a concerning smell, faulty vacuum pumps, brake failure and vehicles that brake on their own.
