"I bought "big red" about five years ago with about 120K, and she's still running strong at 165K. The interior is simple, yet durable, and the exterior looks as good as it did five years ago. The red shine is amazing when detailed. The engine has been pampered, and it appears to be the last thing I will have to worry about, although is does use about 1/2 a quart between changes. I've only replaced the steering box, window motor, and hatch shocks, so I've been very fortunate on the repairs. The drivability leaves a little to be desired, as the brakes feel a bit wimpy, steers like a school bus, and is a real bear to park. All things considered, I do not regret buying this big red machine. This car will be in my family for at least another five years!"

"My family bought a brand new Yukon Denali in 2001 Black with the chrome rims and chrome grill. What a nice SUV!!! This is a good looking SUV. Many people would look at us driving down the street. I kept the SUV very clean. Driving the SUV was even better. The power the truck has is unreal. You step on the gas peddle and look out. You feel the horse power in the SUV. The seats are very comfortable the middle has good space but the 3rd row is super small. I'm 6'3'' 225 and when I would get in the 3rd row my knees would be up to my chest. This SUV burns gas like crazy but with any big SUV you should that before you purchase it. I loved taking 2 and 3 hour trips in this SUV it sits up high and you can pass up anything on the hwy. The Denali is 4 wheel drive you don't feel any wind or rain or 18 wheelers when they go by you. My family had the SUV for 8 years then upgraded to a 2010 model and that one is nicer then the 2001 model. The truck is easy to park also it has a tight turning radius so it's easy to get in tight parking spots. So if you are looking for an SUV I would recommend the Yukon Denali. You better get ready to pay at the pump"

Pros: "Comfortable, Powerful, 4x4, Towing, 7 passengers."

Cons: "Gas Mileage"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"Fuel Pump replacement was the biggest repair/maintenance ever needed @ about 125k, 12 years & 180k miles later the Driver Seat is very worn (cracked/torn Leather), but overall interior is in Very Good Condition. The exterior design is not outdated, Headlamp & Rear Bulb replacement is easy & inexpensive. The A/C Compressor appears to need replace & may be over a $500. job depending on part supplier, but from New to now it has been the best value we could of asked for! Only Con is Gas Mileage!"

"#1 I have a 18000 Lb, trailer fully loaded with 3 mud buggies, No problem for my Denali. 70 MPH on the interstate, just push the long pedal and hold on. #2 With the new supercharger I can pull ANYTHING and still get 25+ mpg's. #3 ALL WHEEL DRIVE. #4 With 550 H.P. to the wheels, this is the only AWD anything I know of that can smoke all 4 tires...WOW What a truck, seats 8, Built to pull and looks Great...GOOD JOB GM, For your next feat of engineering, Build An AWD Corvette... I Dare You!!!"
