Should I purchase a used 2002 Yukon SLT with high miles?


Asked by Aug 19, 2016 at 06:14 PM about the 2002 GMC Yukon SLT

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

What are some major issues you've had with this vehicle and was it a low cost

1 Answer


If you're on a tight budget and can't afford to deal with major repairs, then stay away from high-mileage vehicles. Engine and transmission trouble can easily run into thousands of dollars. I generally regard high-mileage vehicles (those pushing the 150,000 miles plus mark) as "mechanic's specials," meaning you better be a mechanic or know a good one before buying it). If you really want low-cost, reliable transportation, look into leasing a budget/compact car. I've seen em lease for as little as $88/month with a couple thousand down. Most people laugh at that sort of deal but it's better than wasting money on a potential money pit.
