Failure Date: 12/03/2012

I just read the safety notice for GMC 2007 yukon interior door handles delaminating and creating sharp cutting edges (ea 10004). The exact same thing has happened on my 2008 GMC denali Sierra (driver side) - I've sliced my finger a 3rd time and am now having the handle replaced at a cost of $240. When I called GMC customer complaint line they offered no help just excuses. . . Poor customer service. . . Wow, no wonder gm went bankrupt!!.

GMC serria 2002. Our truck has rust on the bumper behind the painted cover. The dealer suggested this is normal and polished it, within one week the bumper showed rust again. The driver's side door is not lined up correctly, the dealer tried to adjust it, the result is the door must be slammed to close it. The motor makes knocking sounds at the start as if it has no oil. The oil has been changed every three thousand miles. The knock started after the truck turned four thousand miles. The dealer told us that gm reports the knock is normal. It is the first time iã‚ve heard of a gas motor having an intentional knock. We have had the truck this since it was new and have had the dealer do all the regular maintenance including tire rotations and oil changes.

I have experienced excessive wearing of the front brakes, which has resulted in the rotors being replaced first, then the pads replaced 2 weeks later, and upon replacing the pads the new rotors required resurfacing. Since then after driving approx 5k miles, I was told that the new pads are appox 40% worn. I required the right front balljoint to be replaced when the rotors were done. When applying the brakes & hitting a bump in the road, the brake pedal goes down to the floor and has a complete lose of braking. It failed the annual inspection, due to a leaking donnut gasket. The tailgate squeaks & rattles, and appears out of alignment. The front driver's door creaks requiring repeated greasing. There appears to be excessive wearing in the front end and braking system, as well as excessive creaking & noise from the rear area of the truck, tailgate, and driver's door. I have been met with continued resistance and lack of answers from both the mfg and dealer. Any help or information would be appreciated.

We had the two rear windows open travling for app 36miles -55mph. Thangot on i75 south app25miles -70mph when the window closed creating a presure sounding pop. Glass spred through the truck spraying glass on the passager side rear seat and down the side of the truck. If a child or passager were in that seat it could have been a real safety proplem. Some may try to say it was a stone but we were in the left lane going south and there we no cars next to us. The sound was a presure sound. I feel this is a defect and if it happened to us it will happen to others.

Consumer states the automatic lock is plainly visible whereas the manual lock is not, making the automatic lock the thiefs first choice and again the system in unarmed. When leaving the driver side or passenger window slightly open, intentionally or not, the location of the automatic door locks (facing upward on the armest), is such that a coat hanger bent through the opening can easily depress the automatic door lock, thereby disarming the vehicle making it possible to open the door from the outside without sounding the alarm to steal the contents.
