My 96 Diesel got 11-20mpg. Denali XL
gets 8mpg city 14 hgy. Painted rear
bumper scratches easily. NAV antenna is
under dash and has poor signal. Onstar
is on the roof.
Navigation system -- although it would
be nice to not have to press the lawyer
achnowledgement every time I start the
vehicle. Heated seats make winter
mornings a pleasure.
Bring back the diesel option Add
backup sensors and a couple of big
backup lights under the bumper. Make
onstar and xm an option -- its unfair to
make us pay for something that we don't
want. Also Onstar on nearly all GM
vehicles will stop working in 2008
In 18 mths the car has died and had to
be junped or towed 9 times.
Service kept changing parts but could
not find the actual problem
Went to lemon law arbitration and GM
settled to "keep me as a customer"
I recently stopped two different
people with The Denali version and
they love the truck except that both
said they had been stuck on numerous
When running a great truck.
Very comfortable and well appointed. I
love the quadrasteer, when it works!
The quadrasteer has malfunctioned and
been repaired now 3 times in 30K
miles. Replaced 2 AC compressors and a
broken muffler (internal components of
muffler were broken). Repairs can be
costly unless under warranty. I
commute 120 miles per day and the
Yukon is very comfortable and
powerful. I would highly recommend
this vehicle again ONLY if an extended
warranty was included. I average 14mpg.
Quadrasteer,radio controls on the
steering wheel, 3-way climate control
and enough cargo room for a football
team make this Yukon a must buy if
size matters and/or you need to tow
Warranty to 75,000 miles should be
STANDARD considering the cost of
repair on this beast. Initial build
quality needs improvement.
Overall, an excellent vehicle. I took
it on a 8500 mile cross-country trip
last summer. Lots of room, plenty of
power. Performed well in all types of
terrain. Drove it through Death Valley
with myself, 5 passengers, and enough
luggage for a three week trip. Didn't
experience any problems. It now has
40000 miles with only very minor
repairs being made (one air
conditioning switch). I plan on buying
the same vehicle next time.
The ride and the power of the 6.0L
engine are my favorite features. It
also handles extremely well in snow
with the Stabilitrac.
There is poor visibility out the rear,
especially at night. Difficult problem
to solve, although brighter backup
lighting would help. Also, some
interior features appear flimsy (ex.
