"I will cry when I sell it! Never had to change the breaks, 3sets of tires and recently had to get a new alternator. I like it better than my corvette. Not kidding. But I live in Nebraska now and decided to get an escalade for the next few years that has AWD. I will miss my Yukon."

Pros: "Powerful and easy to drive"

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

"This SUV has been a staple in our family for 15 years. It is reliable and hard working. We have 246,000 miles on the original engine and transmission (no rebuilds either). The truck has required some work over its lifetime, but it wasn't the worst car that I've ever seen. The body is rusty, but that's GM's fault for designing their rockers the way they did (and mine for living in Wisconsin). That being said, It is a quality built vehicle and i would have no problem taking it cross country today."

"Have owned this vehicle since 2002, bought new. The only mechanical problems were taken care of under warranty and extended warranty. Gas mileage is not good, but vehicle has been a great buy. GM did a good job on this one. With 110500 miles it still looks good and runs well. I actually get offers to sell it."

"Got the truck new and have never had even one problem with it other then the third row seat latch is loose. I have another pick up truck which I need for work and don't really drive this truck enough to keep it. The seats are custom but match the Grey interior perfectly."

"Honestly this ride amazes me every day. I have 175k miles and the only repairs that have been done are an alternator and brakes and tires. The 6.0L engine is dynamic and the 4L80 transmission is e most reliable in any SUV built. Bose sound is awesome and the interior is comfortable. If it has one drawback, it would be the complex electronics before the technology was completely ready for it. Although it hasn't given me much trouble, I have worked on several others with climate control problems and the like. If you want a solid, dependable, powerful SUV, this one is for you."
