"I enjoyed this vehicle for about 75k - 100k. Didn't drive it hard, was truly a school bus. Things started falling apart just shy of 100K. Once I went over, 2 cyclinders blew and I had to spend $5K to get a new engine. I hear it all the time, but I wish American cars had longevity. My Acura lasted for 250K, my volkswagon for about the same, and I'm sure my Toyota will do the same. I'll never buy another GMC/Chevy for the rest of my life."
Pros: "Large vehicle, does exactly what it should"
Cons: "Removing 3rd row seats is a pain."

"I LOVE my Yukon, and found that GMC thought of everything. I am in market for a new SUV, and have been saddened to find out that the new models are not as good as mine - for instance, the rear hatch does not raise as high on the newer models, and I hit my head. My 2001 is comfortable, clean lines, reliable, and can haul anything I want inside, or tow anything I want outside. Most of the time I leave the 3rd row seats out, because they get in the way when raised, but I generally know in advance when I will need the extra seating."
"Z55 shock replaced still rides like a3/4 ton pickup the cost of shocks 1200.00 computer cost another 600 that's uninstalled. replaced break booster over 1K, throttle body , tack ,gas petal asb.,rewire things that should never go wrong the GM makes you pay for. I don't mind paying for the gas you expect that when custom order a 12,000GVW 500 hp. Professional Grade a joke. I've owned 4 sub/uk this on has convinced me not to buy GM ever again. They also raised after 2000 4" higher and 6" narrower did they learn about stability from Ford Explorer ?"
Pros: "Exceptionally reliable/comfortable to drive"
Cons: "Cheap interior materials / plastic."

"The only problem I have had in eleven years is the auto temp/A/C control sensors. A known issue for this year vehicle. I had all replaced at the same time once there was a failure and that is it. It always runs and gets approximately 15 mpg towing or not and is comfortable to drive for long periods of time. The interior materials are typical GM of the time. Not great but have worn well and everyone who sees her wants to buy her. Enough said."
