Pros

My favorite truck so far!

Cons

The only downside to this truck is the gas mileage; however, I knew it going in and therefore wasn't surprised

My Big Honking' Suv — After I sold my Chevy Tahoe, I didn't think I'd get a big SUV again. But when the opportunity to purchase my boss' oldest vehicle came along, I couldn't pass it up. I am a truck girl after all and driving a sedan just wasn't making me happy. This truck drives extremely nice, although it feels underpowered at times. The gas mileage is a major downside, but you have to trade something for a V-8. All in all, I'm extremely happy with this truck and can't wait to get a camper to pull with it.

My Beast — I LOVE MY YUKON. Great Vehicle truly rugged and can handle anything thrown its way. Love the room for cargo or hauling. the power is good to know you have at your command. Also the configurations for the vehicle are great.

Big! — The leather and power everything. It has alot of towing power. Great for family trips with lots of room for everything. You feel very safe in the SUV on the road everywhere you go. People don't pull out in front of you very often.

Huge — This truck was purchased used and has the 8.1L Vortec V8 so the towing capacity is amazing. The gas mileage however is bad, but then it's a huge heavy beast. The ride is good. Overall I am happy with the vehicle.

Pros

Great to get from point A to B and in most cases C.

Cons

Even though it is kind of old, repairs are still on the steep side at most places.

A Street Legal Tank — This is my mother's daily driver. Now, we don't own the usual 01 Denali so its kind of hard to rate it from the normal XL. From what we own its been a great road trip, groccery getting, moving truck. Needles to say its very spacious. It has great looks even by today's standards and still turns heads when dressed up nicely. It's a big tank so its not a miata in the handling department but its not bad either. We have a 6.2L V8 in ours instead of the original 5.7L V8 but we also bout it like that so performance wise it's amazing in my opinion. The truck now is relativly cheap comparing it to when it first came out at $45,999 starting. Now they're aroun $12,000 and $15,000 with the right milage.

Love This Truck, Very Happy We Bought It — We bought this truck used and absolutely love it. It it extremely comfortable and I highly recommend the heated seats. I have never owned anything this big, but I found driving it to be very easy. I was impressed by the turn radius - it turns pretty tight for how big it is. We have not taken it off road yet. We haven't had a single problem with it and the previous owner was pretty hard on it, so that's good. I love that the 3rd row of seats both folds down and is removable. The middle seat is split with 1 side folding down to allow people to get into the 3rd row. I've found that to be a perfect spot for our dog when we have cargo in the back. I'm also impressed by the amount of room left in back when the 3rd seat/row is in use - its more space than my mini van.
