Also the rear mirror temperature display flickers all the time. Drl burn out almost daily. Gmcs have major electrical issues before people start dying. Imagine a car shutting down on you while on the highway. That an accident waiting to happen. The rear wiper works when it feels like working, there is also a message about fixing the ride control. For all the bail money GMC got, they should recall these mistakes they made. It was 10/28/2013 when this vehicle speed control issue happened.

#2 - Vehicle Speed Control problem of the 2003 GMC Yukon
The vehicle was a 2003 GMC Yukon denali. I was driving approximately 65 mph uphill when my engine and traction light came on. My speed was immediately reduced to about 35 mph even though I tried to accelerate. I drove home about 8 miles at a reduced speed because I had my children in the truck and it was raining. I took the truck to a mechanic the next day and he replaced the throttle body. I picked up the truck that evening and as I was driving home the same thing happened again. I took the truck back to the mechanic, the check engine light and tc light was on again however he said that there was nothing wrong. His thought was to replace the throttle body again. Two replacements later, the problem remains. This problem occurred on Sunday, October 13, 2013.

#5 - Vehicle Speed Control problem of the 2005 GMC Yukon
The car involved is a 2005 GMC Yukon xl 1500. The vehicle identification number (VIN) of the car was 1GKFK16Z35_. A friend of mine just showed me a letter he got in the mail that is a recall to fix the reduced engine power code that shows a throttle body needs repaired. . The letter says to bring his vehicle in if it is a gm or chevy model less than 10 years old and less than 150000 miles and they will fix it for free. I contacted gm to see if my GMC was on the list and they told me to take it to a dealer and have a diagnostic done. I have already had one done and the codes keep changing, and from what I have read the gm site and other forums gm does not know what the problem and will not recall it unless they have to, my brother is also a mechanic and had it looked over by our college mechanic shop. Still no relief, I am not willing to spend $5000 and it still not fixed. . So I guess since something like it is recalled and I get into an accident because it reduces power on the interstate doing 75mpg, ill can to take legal action? I can't drive it half the time because of the problem. In the summer it starts with reduced power because its 90 degrees outside. It was May. 19, 2012 when this vehicle speed control issue occurred.

#8 - Vehicle Speed Control problem of the 2004 GMC Yukon
The vehicle is a 2004 GMC Yukon denali. While in the middle of driving, the "stability control diasabed" sensor comes on folloed by "reduced engine power" and my vehicle just shuts off. I have been fortunate the 4-5 times it has happened as I have been able to pull off the road, wait a couple of minutes and restart my car. I have already replaced a hub that my mechanic said was causing a "traction control" problem from earlier. I am reading online all of the nightmares and I unfortunately do not have thousands of dollars to keep trying to fix an issue that GMC is clearly aware of. I have 5 kids and frequently drive them around and someone is going to get hurt and I think GMC should take some responsibility. This vehicle speed control problem happened on Sep. 22, 2012.

The vehicle involved was a 2005 GMC Yukon denali. For approx8 months my speedometer has not work properly. As I'm driving the "zero" may be anywhere from real zero to 120 mph. It is very difficult due to the sensitivity of the rpm gauge to tell me exact speed. Currently I drive with a garman that tells me how fast I'm going. I've found lots of information related to speedometer issues on 2005 gms Yukon denali. The dealership says there was a recall but the speedometer but I had exceeded the mileage. What difference does that make? the dealership says it would be about $350 dollars to fix the problem. I want to know what the problem is but diagnostics also carry a pretty hefty fee.

#22 - Vehicle Speed Control problem of the 2005 GMC Yukon
The car was a 2005 GMC Yukon. While driving from chicago to milwaukee on 1/26/11 my speedometer started to indicate very abnormal speeds. My portable gps indicated I was traveling 62 mph yet my Yukon's speedometer read 110 mph. When I reached my destination in milwaukee and turned my Yukon off, the speedometer remained at 55 mph. I immediately googled faulty Yukon speedometers and found a large quantity of sites containing defect information about GMC Yukon's speedometers. I also read that gm supposedily sent out letters to customers. I can assure you that I never received a letter about this. Having 3 small children I would not let something as serious as this go unfixed had I been made aware. I am now at 96,000 miles and see that gm's "recall" ends at 80,000 miles. It would have been nice to have been notified so I could have had this repaired. This is exactly one of the many reasons people have lost faith in gm and other american car manufacturers. It was January 26, 2011 when this vehicle speed control issue happened.

According to my service provider they have 5 others waiting for the same type of worked to be performed. If there are 5 people waiting to have their speedometer repaired (at the same time) sounds like a consistent problem. I don't know how "one" sticks their speedometer.

The vehicle's vehicle identification number (VIN) was 1GKEC13Z14_. I have a 2004 GMC Yukon with 46,000 miles and the speedometer has started sticking at random points on the gauge. Sitting still with the key off the speedometer can read 10, 50 or even 70 mph.

A replacement from gm is more than $500, including their installation and recalibrating. I find this to be very concerning for a car that is only 3 years old to have such a serious problem.
