Wonderful Suv — Loved all the room for traveling with family. Handles great seats clean up so easy, car mates all through the vehicle. Doors open wide for easy access to the very back of the vehicle. 3rd see can be removed for hauling large items

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Cons

Large for a soccer mom to navigate.

Best Of Large Suvs — From the first long trip I fell in love with this vehicle. Spacious and comfortable with room for kids and all the stuff. On business and golf trips plenty of room to stretch out. Living in the Northeast we experience nasty snow conditions. This 4 x 4 never let me down. Always felt safe. Will miss mine.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Best Vehicle I've Ever Had! — Not one thing wrong to say about it. $59K price tag, Allison Tranny, 6.0L Vortech with 340hp, g80 locking diffs, all wheel drive, all heated seats, four zone climate control, seating for 7, can tow the 9500lbs boat without flinching, automatic self-leveling rear suspension keeps it nice and level all the time, bose 13 speaker system, Michelin XC all purpose tyres: quiet and comfortable yet are brilliant in rain snow gravel dirt and mud, 20 mpg on motorway, 14 mpg in city. Couldn't ask for a better vehicle 70K miles and was only at a dealership once: when they were taking it off the truck so I could buy it. Never used the warranty once, nothing has ever gone wrong with it. No squeeks or rattles either, tight as a drum!

2002 Gmc Yukon Xl 4 Dr Denali Awd Suv — This truck is one of two of the best Trucks GM made in 2002! I say one of the best because the other one is the Chevy Suburban! I own both and could not be happier with both of my investments.

Great — This engine has some kick but i haven't done anything special to it. I really would like to add some brakes to this truck because it really doesn't stop when you need it to. I need to get a new paint job too, but that will come with time.

Great Uv — 10 years old and going strong. Paint holding up well 60,000 miles on original brakes. Easy to drive. Good visibility. On Star no longer supported (analog). Reasonably quiet on road. Love the 500 cubic inch mill. Daily driver. Highly recommend.
