I bought this vehicle in the midst of the SUV/fuel price crisis meltdown. Had it for 3 months now. Really liking it. Got it cheap for what I would have paid for it 6 months ago but it does drink down the gas in town.13 mpg in town.This is the 2wd model and has the best mileage of the bunch. On the open highway though it is great. Comfortable, safe and good height for vision.60mph/23mpg.65mph/22mpg.70mph/19mpg. This is from measuring fuel, not going by the mpg indicator on the dash which I find overestimates by 0.8 mpg. So,with its great power, size and comfort (and reasonable fuel economy for its size) it makes a great vacation car. Just don't use it as a daily commuter.

It's a great car/truck. More space than I now know what to do with. All the pros of a truck with the driving ability and comfort of a car. This is my second Yukon XL SLT. You can get just about anything into this vehicle and have room to spare. Gas mileage is great for a full size SUV. I have two young boys so the leather is great, making clean-up a breeze. No complaints here!

This is the most comfortable car I have ever owned! I'm partially disabled, and this is not only the easiest car to drive, I've found it to be the most functional. The running boards make it easy to get in & out of; height & design give me great visibility. We took out the 3rd seat (2 minutes!) and I can easily put the back seat down (it's split so I can carry cargo and passengers!) to carry the dogs, groceries, and just about anything else I can think of! There's over 6 feet back there. Controls are thoughtfully arranged, along with separate climate control for the rear area....the dogs just love it~! And the stereo w/Bose speakers is icing on the cake!

I love this vehicle. It is excellent for large families and hauling large items. It doesn't do too well with in city driving but is wonderful for long rides and highway driving. Lots of room for everyone as well as cargo space. I would get another one!
