1999 GMC Yukon Denali 5.7 from North America
Great, dependable U.S.A. made car
Rear end had to be replaced at 85,000 miles.
Transmission had to be replaced at approx. 125,000 miles.
Alarm goes off every night making two beeps, then stops.
Heated seats no longer work.
Rear audio controls for rear passengers no longer works.
I've had a a problem with all lights going off for a second or two, as in flickering on and off several times a night, included are the interior and exterior lights, (headlights, qtr. lights and dash). Sometimes other drivers will get angry because they think I'm signaling to them. Don't know what to do before I'm left out in the dark, and before someone comes and punches me in the face. Thanks, and I hope to get an answer on my problem.
I am very happy with this vehicle, wanna keep it forever. It's got 255675 original miles, and I'm the only owner, still runs great.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

You seem to have had a lot of problems early on for a vehicle such as yours. I assume you pull something heavy a lot. We have never had differential or transmission problems with any GM, including one that went 277,000+ miles. Of course we never pull or haul anything. Our use is very light-duty.
We love our 2003 GMC SUV, and plan to keep it to at least a quarter million miles (it has 100,000 miles this far without a single repair, not even brake pads). The interior, exterior and mechanicals in ours are all like brand new. When it is cleaned up, it could pass for a brand new one.
These vehicles are built like tanks. A compact Japanese car totalled itself against the rear end of ours, and all ours required was buffing off the imports inferior paint that got on our bumper. I feel very safe in knowing that my family is driving one of the safest, best built vehicles on the planet (according to a recent crash study of all vehicles).
