Loud rubbing noise coming from the front drive assembly upon a left or right turn. Dealer stated it was within limits. I am afraid a component is going to fail and cause personal injury.

When coming to a complete stop, the brakes jerk or a slipping motion after you are at complete stop. We have brought it to the attention to the dealership numerous times and the have just lubed the problem, according their memo that is the procedure, instead of fixing the problem. This is a almost daily basis, it appears to be a problem that GMC doesn't want to spend the money to fix on these vehicles.
Knocking noise is heard coming from the front of the vehicle and is felt as a "clunk" through the steering wheel. Happens when parallel parking. . . . Tight, slow turns in reverse. Feels like gears in the differential are sticking and lurching. It has been happening on and off for a long time.

Taking off from a stop or accelerating from a low speed the traction control message comes on and vehicle looses power. Happens several times everytime I drive the vehicle. I have 3 children under the age of 10 that have been with me when this happens. I fear we will be involved in an accident because of this power train failure. Dealer claims there is no problem or error codes.

GMC Yukon xl denali -traction stability problem registers on dash and car bogs down and will not accelerate if you let up on the accelerator it will seem to
improve - took car to mechanic and had wheel sensor replaced did not improve till
rust build up was removed from on the splined hub it has since returned - went on line and other people have expressed similar problems but did not find any answers of dealers being able to correct - could be a potential problem which could cause rear end collisions if someone is following to close in the rear since the vehicle nearly comes to a stop.

Front differential fails on awd versions of Yukon/denali models. Unusual front driveline noise is experienced especially during light acceleration or load. Noise is a whine type of load. This one failed @ 54,000 causing dealer to rebuild front differential with new bearings and seals. Old bearings were badly scored and one of them broken to many pieces. I asked for parts and was given what could be pulled out. Internet search indicates many owners with awd systems which were also available on Yukon as well as denali models have had similar failures. Cost to repair as warranty expired at 40,000 miles was approx. $1000.
There was malfunction in the power train driveline, which resulted in the truck shifting from 2wd to 4wd by itself. The dealership has serviced the truck 3 times and replaced the 4wd switch and the transfer case. The problem still exist.
