"We bought this car used in 2004 and it had around 75000 miles on it now it has around 165000. Why we love it so much because this car has never let us down we have been to the ocean to the highest mountains and everything in between and we have done it safe and comfortable. For the past few years we have talked about getting a new car and every year we say to ourselves why this car can do anything a new one can. I always say driving this car is like driving my couch it is so comfy.. we have nicknamed the car Barney because it is purple... which ever it be slick icy roads or super deep snow to hot summer days this car can take any challenge.... She still runs strong and have only had to do usual maintenance. I will probably own this car until the wheels fall off!!!!!"
"When I turned 15 my uncle gave me his 1994 GMC Yukon. I loved it so much for its reliability. It has quite a bit of power and very good towing. Up in the North of the country weather gets very harsh. This truck has helped me get out of snow and helped towed my friends out of ditches. This is an awesome truck!"
"It can drive over any terrain or weather condition. It can pull waaay more than you think it can. It can carry 5 legally but I've had 8 inside COMFORTABLY!!! Its frame will protect you in any crash so long as you stay inside of it. Despite wieghing 6500 lbs it is actually pretty fast! I race people from time to time and I have beaten almost all of them. It is extremly comfortable and drives like its still new even after 205,000 miles. This vehicle can do anything, go anywhere, and take any challenge...so long as you can afford a little gas. At its best we got 18 mpg and that was dragging a boat through the mountains. Normally we expect 13 mpg average in the winter and 15 in the summer since the final drive gear takes longer to drop in when first started."
"'99 Yukon 4x4. I brought this truck brand new. It has every option short of being a Denali. Gas milage is to be expected with this size vehicle. Very reliable and has never left me stranded. General maintence is the key to keeping this truck running great. No transmission problems. Replaced the brakes and the fuel pump. Motor is as strong as the day I took it home. At 92 k there are little things going wrong with it such as dash board light going out and cup holder fell through. Still, would not be afraid to drive cross country with her. GMC has sold me and will continue to sell me. GMC just builds a tough truck."
"I own a 1999 GMC Yukon. I had to replace the fuel pump, very expensive, at about 110k miles, and then the water pump at 120K. Funny thing is, I also own a 1998 chevy pickup and my father owns a 1999 chevy tahoe and all three vehicles needed the same parts replaced within 6 months of eachother and within 5k miles of eachother. Also had to replace the alternators and starters at about the same intervals and within a couple of months of eachother. I think that this is the strongest evidence I have ever seen of engineering defects into a vehicle so that they can make the aftermarket money. The big three american auto makers want to know why they are losing market share, well quality is a great big reason. Also, all three of these vehicles were "assembled" at the plant in mexico, if that has anything to do with it. Hope GM saved some money because it sure is costing me a bundle."
