2008 GMC Yukon Hybrid 4dr SUV 4WD (6.0L 8cyl gas/electric hybrid 4A)


Review

This vehicle will come to abrupt stop during acceleration, without warning. If the person behind you is not paying attention you WILL be rear ended. During my research I have found many others with the exact same complaint, Yet GMC does nothing about it. Most dealerships do not even know where to start when trying to diagnose Hybrid issues. So, expect to hear BS about your batteries , and they will try and sell you on a $5,000 repair. I am on my 3rd engine, the first 2 were covered under warranty ( by luck ). Do your own research about the stalling problem before considering any GMC full size SUV hybrid

Review

thought it was the best thing next to sliced bread, but what a headache this suv has been! burns oil due to bad engineering of the AFM system, dealer just gives run around, when you force them to repair it will cost you big! maybe even a new engine, read post about this vehicle before you think of buying, mine took a crap at around 110k miles so i was out of luck with warranty...also mpg is really round 16mpg avg. so not worth the extra thousands of dollars diff. from a regular yukon! thats why GM stop making them. got an F150 now, loved my Jimmy but they made me hate it! due to design flaw and lack of support bye GMC!

Review

After the Hybrid stickers were removed, my family and I stand back and admire the beauty of this automobile. We had been persuaded away from American-made cars several years ago and went the way of the foreign minivan. We were leery of Government Motors, but are extremely happy with the quality of this vehicle. The ride is smooth, the gas mileage is really 20 mpg, and the cargo room is expansive with the last row of seats out. All our stuff can fit and when the grandparents come to town, everyone has ample room. GM did a great job without sacrificing anything. It's solid and the quality is on par with any Toyota/Honda/Nissan minivan out there!


Best Features

MPG and the Navigation system. Envy from other drivers at stop lights! Back seats are configurable to almost anything you want to carry.


Worst Features

Back row seats are HEAVY, but easy enough to configure. Wish we could get 30 mpg

Review

I have had my Yukon Hybrid for a year and a half and in that time I have discovered a whole new level of sophistication. Previously I have had Range Rovers which are very nice but just don't offer the same level of performance. I have had one recall for a minor issue but other than that in 19,000 miles it has never missed a beat. Fuel mileage seems to average around 20 mpg mostly city driving, but the carbon foot print of this vehicle is far lower than my last few which is the reason I bought it. At stop lights with the engine off the other hybrids are usually running...enough said. You do have to learn to change your driving style to get the most out of this vehicle.


Best Features

handling is good, drive line is spectacular. Build quality so far is VERY good as is the performance. Stopping power is also excellent.


Worst Features

the folding second seat needs to have a latch to hold it in place when folded. I would like to see the elec. drive to be able to sustain 35 mph instead of 30. the speed limiter needs to be REMOVED!
