GMC Yukon XL Normal Oil Usage?

    @vayukon said: I am having my 2010 yukonxl with 93k miles in for the piston and ring replacement. Went through a few oil consumptions and there was a problem. Will check back once I get this done. Are there any engines that do not use oil? The dealership was business like but showed some attention to me . Do you think this will fix the problem or am I better off dumping it and buying a F150 King Ranch

    I just finished my last consumption test on my 2008 yukon which has about 83,645 miles, its seems that I will need to have my car engine taken apart and possibly have my pistons replaced. The gmc repair shop has just stated that since vehicle is no longer under warranty and its been 425 days since warranty expired, gmc will only cover 45% of repair cost and I will need to come up with 55% of the remaining cost. This yukon has burnt oil and I really do not feel that this is fair to me the owner for a "defect" according to me. This seems to be a very common problem with Gmc yukon apart from other issues with the locks and windows on my car. I feel cheated that this vehicle is not fully covered as stated 100,000 miles . I dont have 55% percent to cough up.

    We have a 2007 Yukon Denali XL and are also experiencing a host of issues, along with high oil consumption. Our issue is that our local dealership keeps wanting to charge us a diagnostic fee for each issue, which would be nearly $800. In addition to the high oil consumption we have a host of electrical problems and transmission problems. When we purchased the vehicle it was in the dealership 13 times in the first few months for problems. Our dealership told us they'd find us another vehicle (we purchased Certified GM Used) and they never followed through. We had nearly 100 calls to them for updates and they told us our vehicle was "too rare" and he had his guy searching 13 states. We have a white Yukon Denali XL. We see about 4 per day where we live. Not so "rare". We're so disappointed. We purchased this vehicle to tow our travel trailer and take trips with our family. Unfortunately, we haven't been able to tow for nearly 2 years due to all the issues that the dealership can't seem to fix. They just want to "guess" at the repairs and hope it works, meanwhile charging us astronomical amounts of money. So bummed.
