I bought my vehicle used with a clean vehicle history report. Over 4 months I get ...1) sunroof tracks out.
2)FL tire monitor malfunction, 3)transmission is failing, 4)starter went out, 5) driving lamps work intermittently, 6) check engine light on and computer says its an o2 sensor. Hmmmm which one of several? 7) One of rear seat warmers quit working. I think this earns GM a huge 0 in my book of quality.

I bought my Denali when it had 92,000 on it. It now has about 102,000 on it and I have had it for about 5 months. I haven't had to do anything to it except a fuel pump and have some interior plastic touched up. No complaints here!! The only downside is 13.4 mpg, but what do you expect when you have a SUV of this size. All in all I think it is a great truck and it can do everything i want it to do, I can take me and 6 people around, pull boats and trailers, go on long trips and not even feel like it was very long. Im very happy with my Denali!

Bought this truck with 28,000 miles. Was great until 40,000. The rear Air spring compressor went out, the factory CD player jammed and had to be replaced, Needed new A/c O-rings, the airbag needed to be serviced, there's a popping noise in the front end now, and the interior is flimsy and cheap. There are tons of wind noise and it seems like there's a new squeak or rattle every month. The fact that i can remove pieces of the interior with my bare hands is downright pathetic.

This vehicle rides amazing well for it's size. Gets better gas mileage than some of the smaller competing models. More cargo space than you can use and wonderful ride. Did I mention how smooth the ride is? The Denali is an awesome vehcile.

This is my 2nd Yukon XL and my first Denali and this one has been my best vehicle I have ever owned in the 27 years that I have been driving. The comfort can't be beat. We've driven it from Maine to Florida and back and had not complaints. The power is there when you need it and the gas mileage isn't bad for the size vehicle it is and the comfort. I have had no issues with mechanical problems and it's never broken down on me at all. I recommend this vehicle to anyone who wants a lot of vehicle for their money. This beats any import out there as well! Solid vehicle.

The Denali XL has a very smooth ride. It has a great turning radius. Handles well in the snow. The engine is very quiet. Would like more gas mileage. The brakes are lasting a lot longer than my Toyota Sequioa brakes. Plenty of room for car pooling. Would recommend a change in where the CD player is (my purse is always changing the CDs) and a larger console compartment. Which should include a slot for pennies, not just other change. The covers for the cup holders are touch - very frustrating because everytime you touch them or set anything on them, they open. There are a couple of cubbies that have not use. Also, I'm disappoited that the finish on the console rubs off so easily
