After a defect plagued experience with a new 1996 Suburban, I was pleased with the performance/reliability of the 2001 Yukon XL Denali I traded-in for, until hitting 60,000 miles and having the front differential bearings "come apart", according to the dealer; as if that were something I should've expected after 60,000 miles! If you are foolish enough to buy a big GMC SUV make sure you trade it in before warranty expires!
