GMC Yukon owners have reported 27 problems related to seats (under the seats category).
I have a 2015 Yukon denali and I was driving 65 on the highway and the engine shut down completely. A warning message said engine power failure. I had 4 cars and an 18 wheeler behind me at the time. I managed to put the vehicle in neutral and coast to the side of the road onto a median. It was towed to the dealership where they started trying say it might have been bad gas. Then I was told I cracked valve and they already had one other just like this, then 1 day later after a tech level 2 and a shop forum looked at it, and a conversation with a gm pac rep, gm approved a complete engine replacement! I was shocked. I've had the same 4-wheel drive issues everyone else has. I've also had a/c problems, steer wheel popping noises, sunroof loud wind noises. My seat shifts when I drive it. The a/c seats don't cool properly, which I found out when they put me in a loaner Yukon that worked fine. The speedometer gauge also didn't work for 2 days, which I have a picture of and received a warning ticket for when I was pulled over by an officer not knowing what speed I was going. I passenger step guard doesn't always retract properly. My unit was purchase may 2014 and was one of the first 4 x 4 units that was produced and has had constant problems. Gm keeps denying a buyback, then no trade assistance, then now has offered an extended warranty. This particular vehicle I have is not safe for my family to be riding in. I can't trade it in or sell it to anyone else knowing the problems it has. The dealer won't even take it because they know the problem that they are dealing with.

The heated seats do not heat up. The car was in the shop for this problem within the 1st 1000k miles. They told me to "be patient" and they'll get warm. The car has been in the shop a total of 7 days for the seats not working and I have yet to get it resolved. Emailed the ceo of gm and got a phone call from a person who stated gm considers the seats are working although they don't work most of the time and when they do get some sort of heat (the shop told me they got one seat to heat up to 87 degrees! wow!) it is intermittent and uneven. The seats haven't worked at all in the last 3 weeks and the average temp hasn't been above 32 degrees. I spent a fortune for this car and I can't get anyone at the dealership nor in detroit to acknowledge this car is a lemon or they have a design flaw since they switched to blowers from heated coils. I am supposing the a/c in the seats won't work when it's 100 outside and I'll be told to be patient again. I've asked for my $$ back and I'll return the car. It's got 4,200k mi and I am so done with this lemon bucket.
The second row seating in my SUV is supposed to have the option to lay down or sit up like normal. When I tried to lift the seat of the large section to lay the seat flat, the cable broke as if it had been ready to snap for quite some time. The smaller side hasn't snapped yet but I am sure it is only a matter of time.
The second row seats will not fold down flat. This has been going on for about 2 years.

My heated seats stopped working. When my truck was in the shop with my mechanic I asked if he could look and see what the issue is. When he took apart the seat the heating pad was burnt to a crisp. He called the gm dealer near by and asked what the issue could be and they said a short in the heating pad wire. This part obviously caught fire in my vehicle. I called gm corporate today and they said since the repair was not done at gm there is nothing they will do for me. My car could have completed caught fire with myself and my daughter in it. Just because the repair was not done there but the parts were bought at the gm dealer they wont reimburse me for the parts and labor. This is not a recall item from what I can see online.

2005 Yukon denali heated seat caught fire but did not smoke it burnt into tempurpedic pillow in a plastic bag up to 15 hours causing illness and a month of bedrest and financial ruin for a mother of 4 who still has a rental and unable to go get car that is still not fixed. We were on our way to a funeral in newport beach CA from or. Gm would not fix my car or allow it to be so until an investigation due to it being a thermal event and insurance said not to move due to spoilation. I called south coast who said the insurance was once again out for pictures today November 11th and the incident happened October 2nd. I am afraid of the long term damage breathing toxic fumes will have on my 15 year old. You have nothing listed under heated seats please forward cases.

The contact owns a 2004 GMC Yukon. While removing the third row seat from the vehicle, the contact noticed that a piece of the part used to properly latch the seat to the floorboard failed. Without this piece, the seat is dangerous to ride in because it is not properly secured to the floorboard. The manufacturer stated that he must purchase the whole part rather than the piece that failed. The manufacturer also stated that the repair would be at the contact's expense. The vehicle has not been repaired. The failure mileage was 54,500 and current mileage was 55,000.
I was releasing the third row seating and the locking mechanism broke. There is a "clamp" that locks the seats to the floor this 1/4 inch metal clamp broke in half. Now the driver's side third row seating is not able to be locked into place in order for anyone to ride there.

The seat track for the front seats are sharp as knives. I larcerated my finger when vacuuming carpet. There should be a cap or 'end' device on the end of the track to prevent this.
The front driver's seat is bent and the right side of the back pushes the driver's lower back forward and aplies pressure to his lower back and kidneys, the seat was replaced with a new one but it still applies pressure to the lower back and was improperly aligned, the consumer believes this is a factory defect.

Passenger's seat moves back and forth whenever brakes are applied or when accelerator pedal is applied. Vehicle been in dealer shop on several occasions, and informed consumer problem cannot be repaired. Seeking help from NHTSA in this matter.
Front drivers seat rocks very distracting and feels like it could fail under the pressure of an accident. Dealer contacted as was manufacturer. They stated that they are all like that and a repair is not possible.
The front seats rock unpredictably. They rock both forward and reward under acceleration and braking as well as rough terrain. This is irritating as well as a safety concern as it is difficult to brake/accelerate consistently with the movement in the seat. The dealer has been contacted on numerous occasions as well as gm canada and I have had the drivers and passengers seat replaced. There is still some movement in the seats particularly the passenger seat. The dealer now claims the movement that is still remaining is a normal condition.

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.
