Problems With the 2002 Yukon XL Denali


If you currently own a 2002 Yukon XL Denali or are considering purchasing a used one, you should be aware of three past recalls on the model. Car manufacturers recall certain models when the model or parts within it will fail or fail to meet safety standards. Most repairs required during a model recall are completed at no charge to the owner.

Anti-lock Brake System

  • In August 2005 General Motors issued a recall due to several vehicle models experiencing unwanted anti-lock brake system activation. As a result, increased stopping distances during low-speed brake applications can occur and an automobile accident is more likely to happen. The condition is more likely to occur in environmentally corrosive areas such as the northeastern U.S. Approximately 1,353,718 Yukon Denali vehicles are affected. Customers may contact GM at 866-996-9463 for information on repairs.

Head Restraints

  • A recall was issued in September 2002 after complaints were reported regarding the second row head restraints in the 2002 Yukon Denali. Two potential pinch points exist on each of the folding head restraints when the restraints are folded rearward. If passengers place their fingers into the pinch points, their fingers could be trapped and pinched. According to GM, 558,904 Yukon Denali vehicles are affected by the recall. Customers may contact GM at 866-996-9463 for information on repairs.


  • Poli-Auto, Inc. issued a recall in March 2006 for faulty headlights placed in the 2002 Yukon Denali. The company estimates 1,450 vehicles are affected. According to the recall report, these headlamps do not meet Federal Motor Vehicle safety standards. Since the required amber reflectors are missing, the visibility of the vehicle is poor during night driving. As a result a car accident is more likely to occur. Consumers may contact Poli-Auto, Inc. at 305-477-1356 for repair information.
