Failure Date: 07/09/2010

While driving on a trip the speedometer in my 2003 GMC Yukon denali froze on 72 mph. Speedometer remained stuck on 72 mph for the next 2 hours, still showing 72 mph even when the vehicle was completely stopped. I shut the car off and restarted it whenever possible for the next 2 hours. Each time after I would restart the vehicle the speedometer would drop slightly (about 5 - 10 mph at a time) till it reached 36mph, then it would not drop any lower. Speedometer remained stuck on 36 mph for 2 days. I eventually disconnected the vehicles battery for approx. 30 minutes. After reconnecting battery speedometer appeared to correct itself. During the next month I have had numerous, sporadic incidents where the speedometer will freeze up while driving. This is a very unsafe and potentially dangerous situation. Also the light directly behind the speedometer has burnt out, as well as numerous other gauge, switch, and indicator lights.

Recall for the speedometer in 2003/2004 the there was a recall in 2003/2004 for the speedometer and when I took my car in for another problem I showed the recall letter and they said they only could change it if there was any problem. Past 7 years and less than 70,000 miles the speedometer stopped working when I parked my car. I took my car in to get fixed and they charge me for it, because it has passed 7 years and the warranty for the recall had expired. If there was a problem before they knew it that sooner or later we would have a problem with the speedometer. This is safety if someone drives a car in the freeway and the speedometer just stopped, what it's going to happen if you don't know your speed.

Failure Date: 04/01/2010

While traveling on the highway, my speedometer began acting erratically. For weeks, it would get stuck at certain speeds, then begin working again. After a couple of months, it stopped working completely. Later, other gauges such as oil pressure and water temperature also stopped working completely. The speedometer is a basic safety necessity, and I would not expect to have to repair it.

While driving on the highway I noticed my speedometer reading erratic speeds (I. E. 110 mph while driving 80 mph) I thought it would go back to 0 mph when I stopped but it didn't. Instead it went passed 120 mph and has been there ever since. This is a big problem because you don't know how fast you are going. After researching online how to fix the problem I noticed hundreds of complaints about the same problem with the same vehicle. I have a gps that tells me how fast I'm going so I can still drive it but something needs to be done before someone gets hurt or freaks out behind the wheel.

Failure Date: 12/15/2009

Driving vehicle at highway speeds for approx. 1 hour causes dial-type speedometer to begin registering incorrectly. Initially the deviation is only 3-4 mph, but over time will worsen. Actual speed is being measured with handheld gps unit to check against speedometer deviation. Speedometer can register over or under actual speed. At worse, speedometer can show 0-5 mph while traveling at 60-65 mph actual, and at other times has registered 110-115 mph while traveling at 40-45 mph actual. If engine is shut off and restarted, speedometer will register actual speed for a short time, then begin deviating from actual again. Problem does not appear to occur when only traveling at speeds below highway speed (30-45 mph), but when traveling at highway speeds long enough for deviation to occur, speedometer will begin registering over/under actual at any actual speed if vehicle is being continuously driven (not shut off).

2003 GMC Yukon xl with 118,000 miles on it recently began to have a malfunctioning speedometer, especially in cold weather. I was about to get itt repaired, when I learned from another owner of 2 Yukon/suburban suvs that the same thing happened to their vehicles at about 100,000 miles. If this is a systemic issue in that class of vehicles, there should be a recall and a company-initiated repair of the issue. It is unsafe not to know one's speed.

Failure Date: 12/05/2009

While backing out of the garage, it was observed that I was traveling at a rate of 120mph. I took my 2004 Yukon to the garage only to find out that the instrument panel needs to be replaced (at a cost of $800. 00). The mechanic stated that this is becoming a common occurrence with the 2004 Yukon and that this has not been recalled. My question to GMC is, how many deaths does it take to get a recall? this is a very serious safety concern and should be addressed as so. I bought my truck used, and the warranty is no longer valid. My sister owns a 2005 Yukon that she just purchased (still under warranty) and her instrument panel was just replaced last week.

2003 Yukon xl with 105, 000 miles speedometer not working properly, spoke with GMC was advised there is a special coverage to repair this known problem, but since I am over the mileage not the years they won't do anything. All I want is the part and I will pay for the labor that's only fair. I have 4 drivers in the family and it is unsafe for them to drive. We never know when the speedometer will stop working.
