    13k miles, and engine failure 400 miles away from home!

    Sorry to hear that. Just curious, what is the build date of your vehicle? To find that out, look at the sticker inside your driver’s side door (should show month and year).

    Yukon Denali 2021

    Sounds like a pretty nice find. I know my ‘21 Tahoe had a little smell especially when pulling it into the garage to park for the first 500 miles or so. My assumption is the steps can be purchased as a GMC accessory and installed through your local dealer but I’m not sure on the air ride...

    What oil for 6.2?

    I've always liked Mobile One. Normally Wal-Mart will have the 5-qt jugs for $26 here in Iowa, course I haven't bought any yet for my '21. I'll probably just have the dealership take care of it.

    2WD or AUTO for better MPG?

    No. In 2WD it will only send power to the rear wheels. In Auto, it will be rear wheel drive also until it senses slippage then will engage the front wheels. But Auto mode will also spin more compments in the drive system so it should result in less mileage (which is why when there’s little...

    2WD or AUTO for better MPG?

    2WD should be better. I don’t know the specifics but it engages the 4WD components but doesn’t actually send power to the front wheels until it senses slippage of some type (it’s more of a standby 4WD configuration where it’s ready to go until needed). If you’re not driving on snow or a...

    Paint Issue 2021 Tahoe

    So far mines just chipping away in the front areas by the headlights. Figured I’d wait for it to get worse before taking it in, plus I’m curious how bad it messes up with winter coming (I live in Iowa) and maybe the expansion and contraction of the plastic might mess it up worse. What I’m...

    Dripping underneath vehicle (sizzles)

    More info…it’s pretty normal and probably coming from the A/C https://www.tahoeyukonforum.com/threads/ground-sizzle-after-driving.128079/#post-1595551

    2021 Media access

    I use my iPhone through the wireless CarPlay and have the music downloaded into it. Most music apps will let you download music for offline listening to save on data. Otherwise you can store music files such as MP3’s on a USB flash drive and plug it into one of the USB ports. Then you’d...

    Anyone Having Repeat Issues With A 2021 Tahoe/Yukon/Escalade After Replacement Of ALL Lifters?

    From what I’ve been reading it’s between 4,000-8,000 usually but can be as high as 10,000. One of the other posts talks about a TSB citing build dates of Sept 2020 to March 2021 could be affected. Mine was built in March and I’ve got 4,000 miles on it so far…hope I continue to not have...

    2021 Yukon radio user help

    That seems a little odd. Generally the presets should be remembers based on the key fob that’s being used. I’d probably try to reset the settings to their default options which is an option buried under the menus. I don’t use android audo but generally the first phone defined is the one it...

    9111 miles.. here I sit at dealer 500 miles from home

    That would be sweet if they’d do an even swap for a ‘22. Curious how that plays out.

    Help me decide?

    I ended up paying a little extra for options on my Premium as I didn’t need the fancy 22” wheels, although they do look nice. Overall I think they cost about $2k more and on top of such an expensive vehicle that amount of money really didn’t matter at that point. Something I thought would be...

    6.2 vs 5.3 and premium gas

    That’s the one reason why I stayed away from the 6.2, even though it would’ve been nice. The owners manual says it’s required for the 6.2. Some other posts talked about how you might get a knocking noise due to how the timing might get messed up by not using premium. Here in Iowa it would...

    Transmission/Shifting Won't work 2021 Yukon XL Denali

    Wow...that is just nuts. I hope that's a rare condition, but it's hard to tell on these. I'm up to 3,800 miles on mine and it doesn't give me a piece of mind about the longevity of this new model reading this along with the lifter issues on this forum. I've had several other vehicles in the...
