Reliable And Comfortable — This is my daily driver and is very reliable in all weather conditions that NE PA throws at me. Tow's my 8' enclosed trailer very well. Easy dial on the fly 4x4 system. Very easy and affordable to maintain. Love it.

Pros

This is a comfortable and dependable vehicle with many functions.  It can pull a boat or trailer just as easily as it can carry home the kids and groceries. Perfect for a family or an adventure.  Mechanically sound, this car has had the oil changed regularly and has new tires as of the end of March.  There is plenty of storage space with the seats up or down, and the DVD system is so nice for trips.

Cons

There are a few stains on the carpets, and the bumper has a quarter-sized chip in the paint.  It gets the gas mileage you expect from a car of its size.

Pleasure Accomodation — I love driving this car as a mother with 3 kids. It helped me haul everything from furniture to a lawn mower. My husband was able to take it camping and hunting while I took it visiting and shopping. I always trusted it to get me where I was headed. Great fun to drive anywhere.

Love To Drive This Vehicle. Fun And Easy To Drive. Feels Like Luxury! — The ONLY thing I dislike about this vehicle is that the gas mileage is too low for my everyday travels. I travel about 50miles a day and need a vehicle with better mpg. Otherwise; this vehicle is PERFECT! I'm struggling with actually wanting to part with it. The vehicle looks nice inside and out. VERY comfortable especially since its the denali package. I don't notice road noise at all. Again a very comfortable and luxurious ride. Maintenance repairs are about avg. Cargo capacity is good. I keep a large crate for my dog that travels with me very often in the cargo area without having to fold down any seats! PLUS keep all of his equipment needed for training and travel.. LOVE that I have the room for this! Acceleration of this vehicle is FAST and handles VERY well. (I'm a little bit of a speed freak, I admit). Braking is also great. I had an incidence a year ago where I felt the vehicle slip during driving through an ice storm. Traction control took over and allowed me to safely handle the vehicle through the icy roadway. I got to work safely in one piece!

Pros

I love this car it shad been perfect for me, I know have a son who is driving so do not have to pick him up at school and am ready for something sporier as our other car is a SUV as well. It is very roomy, comfortable but not so big that you cant move around in smaller parking siutations, Would be great for both moms, or men young or older.  Has a sharp look, the Denali package is extremely nice.   

Cons

Well I like a V8 some may not, gas prices being high, that would be the only negative. Hopefully they will be going down. It is what it is.

Sporty But Sophisticated For The Outdoorsman, To The Soccer Mom. — I loved the way it handles, has good power, comfortable seating. Interior has held up extremely well, the back has lots of space for weekend travels or shopping trips, to taking sporting gear to practice. The exterior always looks nice the running boards keep it sporty and sleek. The wheels are in great shape no scratches and or dings.

Best Car I Have Owned...even Better Than The Volvo Xc 90! — This is a fantastic family car. More leg room than my Mitsubishi Montero, Jeep Grand Cherokee or Volvo XC 90. Simple design and loaded with features. Couldn't believe how much I got for the money. GMC has some of the most comfortable seats available, I am disappointed with all of the other comparables in this size vehicle. Plenty of get-up without feeling like a beast, ride doesn't feel like a truck, and amazing maneuverability including turning radius (a pet peeve of mine). Truly a great car!

A Upper Level Suv For The Guy That Likes Quality Us Built Automobiles. — This is the SUV for the guy that likes quality US built Automobiles. My overall rating is 5 stars. The Vortec V8 is undeniable and the comfort is second to none. I would not hesitate to purchase this SUV again.

Ok To Buy And Drive — Acceleration good, braking poor, handling OK; not as tough feeling as my Xterra. Like the looks of it, in and out. gas mileage could be a lot better. i enjoy driving esp after i put a new stero in it.
