We purchased "Big Blue" new Feb 9 of '01 and with 104K miles on her, I have nothing but good things to say. We have had no mechanical issues at all as I've maintained her by the book. The over all design and the power train really can't be beat and for family vacations as well every day use, it's been the ideal vehicle for us. Our plan is to keep it for another 100K miles as we see no reason to replace it with something similar, when it's still in such great shape!

I Love this SUV & would never get rid of it if it werent for gas prices. One of the most comfortable & reliable cars ever. Love it! Love it! I always feel safe in it and it is the best on trips! Only had one problem with a fuel pump at the very beginning & had to replace it, but factory refunded my money. Also the emergency brake sticks & have had it in several times for that. Otherwise I really love this SUV!

Worst vehicle I have ever bought. Spent a lot of money on this truck. This SUV slips way too much in snow even with 4wd on. I changed the battery on this truck twice, brakes were horrible they couldn't be fixed, and power for this beast needs to be improved. GM dissapointed me. GMC you just fell in the same class as a Ford.
The Yukon XL gets a new top-of-the-line engine in addition to more horsepower for the 6.0-liter V8. Debuting this year is the Yukon Denali XL, which gets a new engine along with standard all-wheel drive and a host of other new features designed to elevate the top-of-the-line GMC above and beyond its more basic Yukon cousin.
