I have taken my 2003 GMC Yukon xl in for service on the air conditioner on more than one occasion. I recently moved from michigan to tennessee and while living in michigan I notices a squealing noise whenever I turned on my ac. The noise would last a few minutes and then stop. I also noticed a rattling noise upon acceleration while the ac was on. I took it to the dealer in michigan and at first nothing was found. I again took it to a dealership in tennessee and was told that it was a recycling switch, and it was replaced. Now, almost I year later the same problem has occurred but unfortunately, my vehicle is now out of warranty (50,000 miles) and I am now told that the air compressor has completely failed. It will now cost me over $1,000 to repair on a car that is less than two years old.

This is not a safety defect complaint but a consumer defect. The a/c makes a noise when the compressor engages or switches. The noise sounds like a cd spinning and is quite annoying. It can easily be heard and has been getting louder over time. The dealership replaced the compressor to no avail. They also said engineers are investigating and I have called numerous times to inquire with no updates. The dealership has been great and this is no complaint against them, just a GMC complaint. A new car should not have a loud a/c unit.

I have had ongoing problems with my 2003 GMC Yukon. It started in September of 2004 with my rear air not working, it was inoperable; and, a popping noise in my steering, the steering felt loose. The rear air was temporarily fixed in October of 2004 but continues to be a problem now in September of 2005, one year later. I've never really had rear air since I bought the vehicle, it works occasionally. I still have no rear air and vehicle has been in the shop more than 7 times for this problem. It took until January of 2005 to fix the steering problem. I've also had problems with my speedometer, which quit working in December of 2004 and the part was on back order and I had to take my vehicle in and leave for the dealership to send the speedometer to California for reprogramming, this problem was fixed in January of 2005.

The head gasket leaked water, due to a faulty intake manifold. The vehicle also had problem with a wet floor, the consumer believed it was coming from the air conditioner. Dealer not notified yet. The intake manifold gasket leak under pressure which rusted and pitted the right cylinder head. The improperly torqued gaskets leaked at 10 psi required by the manual. The rear clogged up forcing condensation to build up and escaped into the rear compartment of the vehicle which soaked the padding.

My vehicle was serviced by this facility. I am the second owner and have owned this vehicle for less than 1 year. The orig. Owner purchases all vehicles from them for his construction company and maintains them regularly, as I have. I had the part and was told this was not thee problem. This vehicle had a 60,000 mile service brakes and new tires when I bought it. They charged me $1400 and 11 hrs. Labor for these repairs that should take no longer than 3. I am a single mom who was assured they would only fix the things required by gm dealer and I could get minor things done at my regular mechanic. Now they want me to come back and spend another $800. 00 dollars on the air conditioner. I will ask for a full refund or at least half my money back for bad faith and fraudulous activity on the part of a servicing business. I'm a single mom living paycheck to paycheck and they took full advantage of me. Please make sure that I and other innocent trusting people don't get taken by this particular truck center ever again. I f you would like to see a copy of my receipt I would be more than happy to provide that to you. I have paid the $1400 and do not have the additional $1000 they want to complete the repair they say I need. I realize this vehicle is superior but that's why I spent the extra money and serviced it regularly because I thought I was paying for a quality car. The warranty they say is no longer valid. Help!! I will also be contactinf my local consumer advocat as ell as the media. Thank you for your time! sincerely, shannon thompson (state farm insurance company c a. Lic. #0d54268 ) no referrals from me or my CO-workers that's for sure.
