Intake manifold gasket

by on
Vehicle: 1995 GMC Yukon

I bought my truck because it had a completely new engine due to an intake manifold gasket failure. To my chagrin, I've replaced that same suspect gasket 3 more times. It's a design flaw, which GM is happy to exploit.

Very reliable

Vehicle: 1995 GMC Yukon

This truck has always run very well and I have performed routine maintenance since I purchased it. I use synthetic motor oil and transmission fluid. With 203,000 miles it still runs quiet in the city and highway. I get 19 mpg highway and 14 mpg city. We have thought about getting rid of it but it is now a great third vehicle that serves many purposes.

Yukon pride

by on
Vehicle: 1995 GMC Yukon

We bought our Yukon brand new; just off the truck. We had to go looking for it, because they were new on the market and everyone was wanting one. We have never regreted it. They do not make the 2dr type any more, it is a classic. I have received numerous compliements on the great sporty look it has. It has been extremely reliable and fun to drive. It has leather interior and still a nice looking vehicle. I was hit from behind once and the Yukon was tough and did not sustain much damage even though the lady that hit me with a Suburban had tremendous damage.

It won't die

Vehicle: 1995 GMC Yukon

Prior to my possesion, the trans. just basically collapsed. I had the entire trans. replaced & i haven't had any trouble with it since. The space is above and beyond. Recently I went to go pick up a Double-size mattress. I wasn't quite sure if I would fit, but I took the risk, and sure enough, both the box springs and mattress fit perfectly!

Takes a lickin and keeps

Vehicle: 1995 GMC Yukon

Over all this has been the best truck i have ever owned. It has major potential to be anything that you want it to be. Great porformance and great towing. Very easy to see and handles like a car. I cant resist to upgrade and soup up the engine. Overall it is a truck with major potential. My yukon has 165,000 miles on it and still no problems. Sounds great with 40 series flowmasters.

I had a 1996 Yukon 4X4 and had two alignments done during the first 30,000 miles and 1 set of brakes. I thought this was rediculous and I fought with the dealers and GMC and it got me nowhere. And don...

To anybody who has experience with GMC Yukons. I own a 1996 GMC Yukon 4dr 4wd and apparently it's extremely rare to come across a 96 in a pull and save/junkyard. The current transmission is out, to ...
