The contact owns a 2007 GMC Yukon denali. While driving at an unknown speed, the contact was unable to roll down the front driver side window and smelled a strong odor in the vehicle. The contact pulled the vehicle over to the side of the road and discovered that the driver side door was hot and that the power window switch was melted and corroded.

The contact owns a 2003 GMC Yukon. The contact stated that the brakes failed while approaching a stop sign. After 20 feet, the vehicle stopped. She pulled over to the shoulder, and waited approximately ten minutes. The dealer performed a diagnostic, but no failure could be identified. This was the second occurrence of this failure. On the first occasion, midas checked the brakes, but also could not identify a failure. There is a recall related to the failure she is experiencing. The failure mileage was 59,000 and current mileage was 59,100. Updated 07/29/08. The right front window would not roll down at times. The dealer replaced the regulator and the motor. Updated 07/29/08.
The back passenger windows come forward so that there is a gap in the back of the windows. Where any small child can put their fingers in there, which is what happen to my daughter. She had her fingers in the window and it was rolled up and the window amputated her left middle finger tip almost completely off from behind the nail bed. Hanging on only by a piece of skin. She is two, they tried to stitch it back on to no avail because is had severed through so much of her finger. This should not happen will so many features made readily available.
Three window in my Yukon have now failed. The first was three years ago when the vehicle was only about three years old. Two more have now failed. I have been told this is common to Yukon's.

Power windows in driver and passenger side failed. The motor, regulator, cable, and pulley break down and gets tangled inside and jams up. The entire system needed to be replaced, the driver side went the end of the summer of 2004 and the passenger side went the middle of April. The window does not move.
Passenger door window regulator, 2000 GMC Yukon xl. Want to know if there is a problem with this since it seems there is a shortage of this part. And that info comes straight from gm. I have been waiting since April 6th for this part and am told that it will be mid-may sometime when I may actually get it. They said the demand for this part has been great they ran out. I would like an investigation into this matter, why would there be a shortage of this window regulator and a high demand for this if there wasn't a problem.
Approx 6 months ago rear passenger side power window stopped working, recently front passenger side power window does not work. . . . Unknown how this happened. . . I replaced door switch, but it did not correct problem. I also checked fuses. I removed rear door panel and checked wiring,ok/ I tapped window motor and it began to work. Shortly after it quit working again.
Three windows wouldn't go down. The electric motors were bad. The dealership stated that they have seen this problem occur with this make/model a lot and was a common problem for GMC dealers. The only window that does work is where the motor had been replaced by a previous owner. The consumer's vehicle will not pass the state inspection due to this issue.
Passenger and both rear seat power windows quite working at the same time. This could possibly be a danger in case of an accident. I have found numerous complaints of this problem on 2000 Yukons. Throttle pedal sticks and you have to use excessive pressure to unstick it. This causes you to move forward or backward at a high rate of speed. This is an accident waiting to happen as you start off or are in a busy parking lot. Could cause injury to pedesterian or small child. I have also seen numerous complaints of this problem filed on 2000 Yukons. Passenger seat belt tightens as you ride to the point of causing pain, you must disengage seat belt and rengage to correct problem. This is also is a danger as you could be unbelted when an accident happens. I also have seen numerous complaints on this problem. There have been service bullentins on these problems, but gm refuses to pay the repair cost on our vehicle. They have been aware of these problems since these vehicles were in warranty. I purchased a 1996 Yukon new and had it until trading for this 2000 Yukon, I never had a complaint. Their quality assurance has sure gone down hill since 1996.
Within a 4 month time I have lost my driver-side window, front-passenger, and rear driver-side window all to failed window regulator or motors. Moreover, more recently I have had the random window blow-out in my cargo area. Not to mention the throttle sticking. This is unreal, what a nightmare, cute to drive horrible to own!.
Power window motor failed, driver side rear window is inoperable, stuck in up position, this seems to be a documented problem with Yukons.
My Yukon dies at stop lights &stop signs for no reason . Both electric window motors have failed . The back widow exploded for no reason . The front suspenison feels lose. This car looks like a 12 year old kid put it together.
Both rear power windows failed. I have two Yukons and this happened on both trucks. I also had to replace the fuel pump on one of the trucks and the second truck is acting up intermittently. I have other friends with the same problems on their trucks.
30 to 40 mph cross wind. Window failed showering driver with glass.
Both rear power windows appear to have shorted out. They are stuck in the up position.
