This big SUV, which is built on a full-sized pickup chassis, seems like a throwback in a world where nearly every other SUV is now based on a carlike unibody structure. It's a virtual twin of the Chevrolet Tahoe and essentially a shorter version of the GMC Yukon XL (and Chevy Suburban), with a 20-inch shorter length and about 24 cubic feet less cargo room.

Reliability indicates how models have performed in the past, providing the basis for predicting how the vehicles will hold up in the year ahead. These charts provide the most comprehensive reliability information available to consumers. Based on information received from our latest subscriber survey for about 329,000 vehicles, our reliability history charts give you a rundown on how 2000 through 2020 vehicles are holding up in 17 potential trouble spots, ranging from the engine, transmission, and brakes to power equipment and the electrical system. NA 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.

Owner Reported Trouble Spots

The Reliability score is based on our latest subscriber survey of 2016 GMC Yukon owners. The owner comments describe problems respondents experienced with this vehicle.

In-car Electronics

CD or DVD players, radio, speakers, GPS, communication system (e.g., OnStar), display screen freezes or goes blank, phone pairing (e.g. Bluetooth), voice control commands, steering wheel controls, portable music device interface (e.g., iPod/MP3 player), backup or other camera/sensors.

What Owners Say

Apple CarPlay

"Apple CarPlay randomly hijacks my entertainment system when I plug my iPhone into the USB port. When listening to the car radio it will occasionally, randomly, start playing what was streaming on my phone. I cannot get the car radio to play again even when pushing Radio selection button repeatedly. It will switch to radio then switch back to my phone's content. (If working properly, I would have to push the Media selection button to play what is on my phone.) This happens mostly when I first get in the vehicle, but also occasionally (randomly) while I am driving. This is only when my iPhone is plugged into the USB port, the Bluetooth connection works fine. Plugging my iPhone into the USB to activates CarPlay automatically. If I want to voice text or have my texts read to me I have to be on CarPlay. Otherwise I would always connect via Bluetooth because of the connection problems with CarPlay. (Using a device hands-free is mandated in my state.) The hand-off of phone calls is troublesome also. If on a call when I start the vehicle and plug my iPhone into the USB port, the call goes silent, and sometimes drops. It can take up to 30 sec to connect back to my existing call through the car speakers. If on a call when I turn off the vehicle, it will drop the call. There is a "handset" selection option, but it only appears sometimes. Again, to use my device hands-free it has to be operated through CarPlay, otherwise I would just use the seamless Bluetooth connection. I do not know if this is an Apple issue or a GMC Intellilink issue, but I am very frustrated with the system. The GMC dealers do not have any knowledge about how to fix the issues. The in-vehicle wifi is also spotty. It seems to only work when I am in range of a cell tower (what then is the point of having satellite wifi?!) The wifi has not updated automatically. GMC was able (finally) to update the wifi for me but it was very time consuming and difficult. It took several attempts, having to wait 24 hours between each update. Like the CarPlay issues, I do not know if this is an ATT (wifi provider) issue, or a GMC Intellilink issue. I am disgusted with how poorly, and randomly, the connections are. It has been this way since I got the car."

"GMC Navigation System had system failure 1/2020; antenna and electronics. GPS was not finding where on the planet we were; showed us in the middle of Lake Michigan! Took to GMC-certified mechanic 50 miles away, twice. Had to order parts; took over 4 hours to fix on second visit. Replaced antenna and had to resent electronics several times. Currently functions but map layer of gps is not showing County-level road names and sometimes doesn't show the County highway at all when car is actually ON it. Called Customer service 5/2020; technician "opened a ticket" so I could call OnStar from the vehicle. Onstar Tech unable to diagnose problem with GPS and thought it needed a map update (which would cost $160). We might just stick our $100 Garmin in the vehicle; it has free map updates!"

What Owners Say

Exterior lights (other than headlights)

"Rear tail light seal broke and humidity got inside the light"

Anonymous, MO (2016 GMC Yukon Denali 6.2-L V8)

"about 6 months ago my left rear brake light (an LED) went out. Cost more than $800 to replace the entire unit. Then, within a month, the right rear brake light went out (another $800). Fortunately a month ago, GM sent a note that they would reimburse for the cost of replacement. And, they did."

"Rear taillight had to be replaced (under warranty) for intermitten function"

Anonymous, TX (2016 GMC Yukon Denali Unsure)

"right tail/stop light assembly stopped working intermittently. just prior to this happening I rec'd a notice from GM that they were providing an extended warranty coverage on this specific problem. They also said they would reimburse if you had already paid for this type of repair. I had the same problem with the left tail/stop light assembly 18 months previously and at that time had to pay out-of-pocket for the repair to the tune of $773. I provided the req'd documentation to the dealer, and they did indeed reimburse the $773."

"Passenger side real tail light operated intermittently."

Anonymous, KS (2016 GMC Yukon Denali 6.2-L V8)

"Left taillight assembly stopped functioning. It wasn't a matter of just replacing a bulb. It is a sealed unit LED assembly. The entire unit had to be replaced at a cost of over $600 just for the part. Checking chat boards online, this was not an uncommon problem due to defective supplier parts. Apparently GMC uses a different supplier now. Of course it was past warranty coverage and it came out of my pocket."

Steven P., CA (2016 GMC Yukon SLE 5.3-L V8)
Tire pressure monitor

"Right front TPM failure, doesn't even register. May be due to aftermarket rims & tires, but unlikely due to only one of the four failing. Dealer checked it but it immediately failed again. Could be incompetence by dealer (non-GMC dealer)"

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 went out. Was replaced. Under warranty"

Colleen L., LA (2016 GMC Yukon SLE)

"The dealership simply told me the compressor had a small leak, and would cost $1600 to replace. which they did. I checked with two NON-dealer auto repair shops, and both said they would have simply recharged the unit (a cost of ~$200). Dealer pushes the most expensive 'fix.'"

Blower (fan) motor

"the rear heater blower makes a humming noise. It has done this since the first winter we purchased it but could never be heard when at the shop. This year it was loud and happened all the time but now out of warranty"

Renee M., AR (2016 GMC Yukon SLT 6.2-L V8)
Condenser

"It became unoperational and therefore stopped cooling the interior"

Brent F., AL (2016 GMC Yukon SLT 5.3-L V8)
Refrigerant leaks

"A/C stopped working in 101 degree temp. A third party shop replaced the refrigerant with dye at a cost of $150 to locate the leak. Located the leak on the compressor which costs $1500 to replace. While looking for the part, repair shop read the GM knew about the problem and was repairing for free, but they were not telling the owners. You had to have a failure and them contact them even."

What Owners Say

Ball joints

"the dealer found my ball joint was worn, so they replaced it."

Ronald L., MO (2016 GMC Yukon Denali 6.2-L V8)
Electronic or air suspension

"It took 2 visits to correctly diagnose and repair problem. And had to wait for part to schedule 2nd visit. You would think that with as many of these vehicles they have on the road, they would at least have a minimum of basic parts in inventory. They first replaced the air line to one of the shocks which wasn't really the problem. Then ultimately replaced the air shock on the other side of the vehicle because of a failed retainer ring."

Anonymous, CA (2016 GMC Yukon SLE 5.3-L V8)
Shocks or struts

"Shocks leaked after 60000 kilometers and 2.5 years of ownership and cost $5000 to replace. GMC did cover 75%o of the cost but the reason given for replacement was because of the cold. I live in Winnipeg, it goes to -40 ever winter."

Tire wear is uneven

"The car has TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring System). I was having trouble keeping proper level of air in one of the four tires. The tires were made in the year of 2011. So I recently had all four tires replaced at Costco during a ongoing sale. It has completely changed the ride/feel of the car."

What Owners Say

Other/unsure

"After a while the blind spot system would allow the car to start and we had to get it towed . We have the extended warrantee so GM covered all costs for the towing and repairs."

Gilbert M., NY (2016 GMC Yukon SLE 5.3-L V8)

"The adaptive cruise didn't function from the day I drove off the dealership lot. I assumed I just didnt have it and it was a typo. after thorough research I came to the conclusion it was equipped but not functioning. Near the end of the certified pre-owned warranty period I brought it in for several items but the dealership refused to look at the adaptive cruise claiming a firmware update involving the vehicle sensors would most likley resolve this. It did not. When I returned a few days later but just beyond the mileage they refused to honor the warranty because it was never recorded as looked into at the last service. For this reason I will not waste money or time on Certified preowned being its obviously just a scam. They claim to thoroughly inspect the vehicle but they dont. They simply roll the dice and hope you have no issues."

William R., NY (2016 GMC Yukon SLT 5.3-L V8)

Engine Minor

Accessory belts and pulleys, engine computer, engine mounts, engine knock or ping, oil leaks.

What Owners Say
