The 2000 Yukon XL SLE that I have
driven the past two years, was
purchased at a local GM dealer as a
certified vehicle. The warrenty was
used once to repair the rear window
defrster. The SUV has proven to be
reliable and an extremely comfortable
vehicle to drive and ride. It is, by
far, the best SUV I have owned and one
of the best vehicles ever in my garage.
Size, roominess. Decent gas milage for
the size. Great on long trips with a
bunch of kids and crusing around the
Better suspension to prevent body roll
around corners. Most disturbing around
Quicker acceleration. Top end is OK.
I'm having a problem locating the cause and the cure for the car's insistance on clunking when changing gears. It happens only when the air conditioner in on and the condenser is causing a load to the engine.
The clunking happens when I brake to take a corner or slow down in traffic and then accelerate. Also, as I approach a complete stop, the clunking happens as the car shifts down through the gears. It is driving me crazy.
I NEED HELP!
