Its Good Enough — i wouldnt recommend this for anyone on a tight budget, it uses a lot of gas and the repairs are very costly . it is great for hauling anything and everything you could imagine and the seats are very comfortable so if long trips are needed its great to ride in.

I'm Really Bored. — The GMC Yukon has a very powerful Vortec V8 engine. It is built solid. Exterior styling is plain alon with the interior cheap plastics but it is very roomy with comfortable leather seats. As expected very poor gas milage but overall it requires low maintenance.It is also pretty good off road and it is also suprisingly easy to maneuver for its size.

Best Vehicle I Have Ever Owned. — The vehicle is amazing. It has strong accelleration and good pulling power. Stopping performance is good but the brake pedal travel makes the vehicle seem like it is a lot of work to stop. The handling I can not say too much about because i am running with heavy duty shocks, extra leaf springs, and helper air springs, as well as LT275/50R20 tires, so my yukon rides like a haywagon, but i still love it. Build quality is excellent, no squeaks, rattles, the only thing is that the rear door handles both broke off inside. it has needed nothing major thus far and still runs awesome with 230000 KMS on it. It looks great, especially with chrome 20's, and the interior desigh in PERFECT! The centre console is my best friend. Also the folding rear seats have been a life saver on several occasions. The fuel milage on the truck is brutal, but it's the price to pay for a do-all capable vehicle. Boy is this thing fun to drive, expecially 'cause i can take it wherever i feel like!

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)
