2002 GMC Yukon XL SUV 1500 SLE 4WD 4dr SUV (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

This vehicle is perfect for my lifestyle. It has had no more problems than my BMW and the Dealership has been very good. This is my third Yukon! I would definately recommend, but I am tired of seeing so many.


Best Features

Faves, 5.3 motor rocks! size, technology, practicality, low step in, towing, stereo, ac-rear, an many more.


Worst Features

Things I'd change would be less noise thru firewall and parking brake location, my '98 was quieter, but not smoother or handle as well.

Excellent ride, performance, handling. The leather seats are the best I have ever rode in. This car is a must for big families...


Best Features

Engine is very strong when you place a K&N air filter...


Worst Features

GMC needs to buy a transmission company. This transmission is a piece of junk...

Review

The 5.3 ltr. is rated to tow a 7,700 lb. (max) trailer. I purchased a trailer and at a weight of 5,000 lb. the Yukon does not work so well. The dealer reps assured me that the 5.3 is a "STRONG engine more than capable of towing the close to the max rating". I had my doubts and I was right. The 5.3 is not a very strong engine I would avoid towing much of anything.


Best Features

Very comfortable and good fuel mileage for the size of the vehicle.


Worst Features

Be honest with the towing information presented by GM. A 50% margin should be enough to ensure a safe and adequate towing operation, but GM standards are not very realistic.
