I have a GMC Yukon and the wheel bearings in both sides have went out. I heard that the h2 hummer has a recall on its wheel bearing. How come the Yukon doesn't? I heard of other Yukons having the same problem. Is this a chevy problem? my wheel almost came off of my vehicle going down the highway. The mechanic said the only thing that was keeping it on was the brake caliper. I sure hope nobody gets hurt over saving a couple of dollars, please there needs to be a warning and possibly a recall for this problem.

I have a 2003 GMC Yukon xl which both front wheel bearings failed at the same time at ~51,280 miles. These are sealed bearings that were supposed to last the lifetime of the vehicle. I was able to avoid a catastrophic failure by replacing both front wheel bearing assemblies, $692. 49, when I heard the bearing grinding noise. The mechanic at the gm dealer told me he replaces the bearing assemblies on two to three vehicles a week.
Consumer complaint regarding 2002 GMC not being included in recall. The vehicle would skid and grind when the brake pedal was applied. The consumer took the vehicle to the dealer to be serviced for recall 05v379000. The dealer informed the consumer that his vehicle was not included in the recall therefore they would not repair it. The same day the vehicle was taken to a local repair facility where they replaced the left front unitized bearing and front wheel drive hub assembly.

I had just gotten off the interstate from a 4 hour drive and heard a awful grinding noise coming from the front passenger side of the vehicle. It sounded like "metal against metal". At first I thought it was a brake pad, but the pads appeared to be fine. I parked it that night and on Sunday morning (6/6/2005) drove it to the dealership and asked them to call in the morning. The dealership called me Monday morning and said that the front wheel bearing had gone bad. In my discussion with the service manager, he indicated that this is a common problem with the surburbans, envoy's and Yukons. My concern is that how much longer would I driven before the bearing totally buned up and caused the loss of steering? I had the wheel bearing assembly replaced at a $494. 70 expense to me and it is currently driving fine. The vehicle had 46,369 miles on it at the time of failure.
We are now replacing the bushing in the steering column for the second time with less than 42,000 miles. This component was replaced originally at 28,000 miles and has failed again. With this failure has caused left wheel bearing to go out. At 58,000 mile the right wheel bearing is now in need of repair, should have gotten the extended warranty, none of this is covered after 36,000 miles. Also, the rear air will either blow cold until the thermastat is change to the red setting completely. When taken in with the initial failure of the steering column, I was told that the setting worked fine but would be noted incase of later failure so it might be covered under warranty.
There is a problem with the abs kicking in at low speeds. The contact has been experiencing the problem since September of 2003. Had taken it vehicle to dealer to be repaired. They replaced the whole front hub bearings and the abs sensors. The problem came back in September 2005. He is taking it to dealer for repairs in October. It is a constant and an ongoing problem. The contact has found a recall bulletin number 05068 for September o 2005. The contact's vehicle year was not included. The contact stated that gm refused to cover the vehicle in the recall. The service dealer said that gm claimed that if he wanted the vehicle to be safe he would have to pay for the repairs.

Two other people have told me their wheel bearings have failed. Also with low mileage. These are shielded bearings that do not require lubrication. Bearing on my truck was half gone when they replaced it. It was mis diagnosed by j. P. Thibodeaux GMC in new iberia, la. And correctly diagnosed by courtesy GMC of lafayette, la. I had made two trips to j. P. Thibodeaux complaining about the noise and wheel locking up. I was told it was a wheel sensor, causing the problem. Told to drive truck home which was approximately 20 miles each way at 70 mph. This was very unsafe and dangerous knowing what I know now. These bearings are defective and need to be replaced by a quality bearing.

The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic who stated the wheel bearings were bad and the vehicle also needed tires.
See all problems of the 2001 GMC Yukon.
The front/rear wheel bearings went out and needed replacement.
My parking/emergency brake goes all the way to the floor and does not hold my vehicle on even the slightest grade. The dealer states that this is normal per GMC even though they have had numerous complaints. My engine has a knocking noise when I start it up in the morning. The dealer also stated that this is normal per GMC. My front passenger bucket seat back moves forward and back (wobbles). My rear end wheel bearing were replaced because of a loud hum. That was misdiagnosed twice by alfred mathews. My front end feels loose and squeaks when accelerating or braking. Rear leather bucket seats rattle all the time when driving and the leather has ripped @ seams twice. Alfred mathews replaced once and tried unsuccessfully to fix seat rattle. My newest complaint is a noise that comes from the rear of the vehicle when you shut the doors. ***dimsii ivoq entry posted after 12/12/02 cut-over to artemis****761455.
