A huge, old-fashioned, truck-based SUV, the Yukon XL is the quintessential family truckster for large families who live beyond the suburbs. What sets it apart from other SUVs is that it provides three rows of seats -- for carrying up to seven, eight, or even nine people -- yet retains generous cargo space, along with a hefty towing capacity.

    Reliability History Reliability History The reliability charts are based on responses on hundreds of thousands of vehicles from our latest Annual Auto Survey. Consumer Reports subscribers reported on any serious problems they had with their vehicles during the past 12 months that they considered serious because of cost, failure, safety, or downtime, in any of the trouble spots included in the table below. The results are presented relative to the average model that year. Extra weight is given to the more serious areas such as major engine or transmission problems. Based on this data and further analysis, we predict reliability for the latest year. N/A indicates that we did not receive a large enough sample size to provide data for a specific year. An X indicates that the vehicle was not manufactured for a specific year.

    Road Test

    A huge, old-fashioned, truck-based SUV, the Yukon XL is the quintessential family truckster for large families who live beyond the suburbs. What sets it apart from other SUVs is that it provides three rows of seats -- for carrying up to seven, eight, or even nine people -- yet retains generous cargo space, along with a hefty towing capacity. Add a luxurious and quiet interior and the added traction of four-wheel drive and you get a uniquely capable vehicle.

    The Yukon XL is one of the last of the SUVs with real truck capabilities in a world where nearly every other SUV has adopted carlike unit-body structures. Despite major updates for 2015, the Yukon XL still delivers a relatively truck-like driving experience. But it has fuel economy compared to better handling car-based SUVs. None of those "crossovers" can match the Yukon XL's combination of talents.

    Climate System

    Blower (fan) motor, A/C compressor, condenser, evaporator, heater system, automatic climate control, refrigerant leakage, electrical failure.

    What Owners Say

    A/C compressor

    "AC compressor seized at ~38K miles. Vehicle has always been dealer-serviced. GM refused my request for reimbursement. GM customer service was extremely hard to deal with. Dealership was extremely helpful & discounted repair costs."

    Danny M., PA (2015 GMC Yukon XL SLT 5.3-L V8)
    Blower (fan) motor

    "Blows motor failed due to fuse box failure. This failure was so common that replacements were unavailable."

    Anonymous, MD (2015 GMC Yukon XL SLT 6.2-L V8)

    "A/C does not work and have waited 2 months due to no parts"

    Mary H., MD (2015 GMC Yukon XL SLT 6.2-L V8)

    "GM issued a Service Bulletin about condensers in the Yukon/Suburban and 1500 Sierra/Silverado trucks. Both the condenser itself and hard line coming out of the compressor are prone to cracking and leaking. My condenser visibly cracked at the base and started leaking. Due to COVID-19, the supply of replacement parts was severely limited and my dealer projected at least a 2 month wait for replacement parts. (an online search returned practically the same result.) However, due to my physical handicaps and my inability to endure heat, my dealer was able to convince another dealer to sell them one and I got it replaced within a week. My dealership is beyond exceptional in both sales and service."

    In-dash navigation system (GPS)

    "Speech recognition is non existent. navigation even with updates can't find roads that have been in existence for a long time. Doesn't seem locally aware. As in navigate to a city in Mo, but looks to California or some other distant state."

    Anonymous, (2015 GMC Yukon XL SLT 5.3-L V8)

    "The GPS system in this vehicle began acting up at roughly 75,000 miles, it would work intermittently. In the past year it completely stopped working. Dealership told me that it was the GPA antenna that needed to be replaced due to it having a loose connection at a cost of over $500. This was a manufacturing defect, but they wouldn't replace it under warranty even though I found a recall notice on the internet. There reason and when I called GMC I was told I had to bring it in when the vehicle was under 18 months old, if not it wouldn't be covered. I have owned 8 GM Denali / Suburban's this will be my last due to all the issues with this very expensive vehicle, and virtually not concern or coverage by GMC. Other issues I have had, replaced transmission at 76,000 miles, two electric door looks stopped working in past 2 years. Sun roof doesn't work due to something wrong with fuse plate in vehicle, but they won't replace it under warranty even though it came from the factory that way, radiator is leaking due to poor radiator quality, now air suspension system is acting up. Basically this vehicle is a pile of junk, but as I paid so much for it I am keeping it as to buy a new Ford Expedition or a MERCEDES-BENZ GL is a lot at this time. Next one will not be a GMC or Chev and they don't seem to care and as I said I have owned 8 of them. Very Very unhappy customer."

    "GPS antenna has been replaced twice to date. When the antenna fails it renders the GPS useless. Also, the improved replacement parts were on back order, which meant the vehicle did not have a functioning GPS system for 1/3 to 1/2 the time we've own"

    Anonymous, WY (2015 GMC Yukon XL Denali 6.2-L V8)

    "Both tail/brake lights failed after a period of intermittent issues. When I asked the dealer to fix brake light bulb I was informed it was a sealed LED assembly costing $595 and none in stock! About the time both lights totally failed I received a recall notice from GM on tail lights. If my vehicle had less than 72,000 miles they would replace @ no charge, if more than 72,000 I would have to pay. My selling dealer quoted $200 for each tail light assembly and $198 to install. Cost: Between $600-$700 inc tax. At the time both tail lights failed and recall notice was received I was at my Florida condo. So I went to local GMC dealership in Ft Walton (because I had NO tail light or brake light and someone almost ran into me) to see what they would charge. That dealership quoted me $700 each and $250 to change! I will NEVER darked that dealership door again. I am not happy with GM charging me for a safety recall because my mileage was arbitrarily above some limit...it was a safety issue! I am especially unhappy because this is my 12th GMC Suburban/Yukon XL! I've generally been happy with these vehicles but this experience is causing me to consider a different brand for replacement this summer. My dealership charged me their cost on the lights and I'm happy with my local dealership. The Ft Walton dealership attempt to gouge me in a safety recall is unconscionable and I intend to write a letter to GM Customer Service, not that it will do any good."

When rolling to a stop at 1000 rpms it will always accelerates to 1200 rpms when you have your foot off of the accelerator. When it is cold it also pauses when starting from a complete stop. It has been to four dealerships, GMC, two Chevrolet and the mechanics at the used auto delership that it came from to try and repair it. No one has been able to fix these problems.

    "Transmission had a shuddering issue at certain speeds in certain gears. This appears to be a somewhat common problem (based on forums). I brought it to the dealership to fix, and they apparently had to reprogram the transmission and also replace the fluid and filter. They attempted to charge me for all of this (even though it was under warranty), but I pushed back and they ended up filing it as a warranty claim with GM. The vehicle was fine for 8-10 months, but it seems like it's starting to do it again."

    Anonymous, OH (2015 GMC Yukon XL Denali 6.2-L V8)

    "I have just started to have issue with the air suspension on my 2015 GMC Denali, I have owned numerous other Denali's and only had one with an issue at over 200,000 miles. This issue just started in the past couple of days, and I need to take it into the dealer. The issue is that it doesn't seem to level the vehicle and then as you are driving the back jumps up into place unexpectedly. I know if it is a problem with the pump or the shocks this is going to cost me well over $2,000 to fix. Very poor quality of parts. I know that some may say I have excess miles on my vehicle but over 90 percent of my miles are highway driving smooth roads etc. and I don't carry excessive weight. This system is faulty and prone to issues, especially the air pump that levels the truck, as the pump is placed in a unsealed box behind the drives back wheel. I headed up product development in a very large consumer durable company and we would have fired the engineer who recommended this unless it is planned so that when the system is inundated with snow, salt and ice in the winter it will eventually break down and have to be replaced for a lot of dealer $$$$."
