2012 GMC Yukon
2012 GMC Yukon
The GMC Yukon is an old-fashioned sport-utility that's built on the same rugged platform as the Sierra pickup, and yet it has all the conveniences of a modern vehicle. The Yukon delivers serious towing and hauling ability, seating for up to nine, and a handsome, boxy look that reminds other drivers that you're doing important work, even on your morning commute. The Yukon is available with 5.3- and 6.2-liter gasoline V-8 engines, the latter of which has enough muscle to tow 8500 pounds but is not exactly a fuel sipper. A third option, a 6.0-liter V-8/electric-hybrid powertrain aimed at improving fuel economy, is also available. Although it doesn't add anything in the way of hauling or towing capacity, it does return an extra 3-to-6 mpg. That may not sound like much, but it figures out to a twenty-percent increase, which isn't bad for such a large vehicle. Third-row bench seats are standard on all models, and the first and second rows can be configured to seat either two or three people. The stylish Denali model offers a host of luxury-car equipment, including a blind-spot detection system; a heated, power-adjustable steering wheel; twenty-inch wheels; ultrasonic rear parking assist; a remote start system; and an auto-dimming rearview mirror.

Summary
General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2011-2012 Cadillac Escalade, Escalade ESV, Escalade EXT, Chevrolet Avalanche, Silverado HD, Silverado LD, Suburban, Tahoe, GMC Sierra LD, Sierra HD, Yukon, and Yukon XL vehicles. In the affected vehicles, the ignition lock actuator may bind, making turning the key difficult or causing the ignition to get stuck in the "Start" position.
Consequences
If stuck in the "Start" position, the ignition may suddenly snap back into the "Accessory" position, causing a loss of engine, steering, and braking power, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash. If the vehicle is in a crash, the air bags may not deploy, increasing the risk of occupant injury.
Remedy
GM will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and replace the ignition lock housing, as necessary, free of charge. The recall began on February 12, 2015. Owners may contact GM customer service at 1-800-458-8006 (Cadillac), 1-800-222-1020 (Chevrolet), or 1-800-462-8782 (GMC). GM's number for this recall is 14696 for the original equipment, and 14912 for the service replacement parts.
