2006 GMC Yukon XL SUV SL 1500 4dr SUV (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Lets start by saying I bought new and right out of the dealer it was problems. 1) Front end will not stay in alignment / 4 set of new tires with now 103,000 miles. 2) Transmission is about to go but has always been hard to shift. 3) Every thing in the cabin shakes, breaks and falls apart ( trim pieces ect. ) 4) Both A/c units have failed due to some electrical part,,,$ over $ 2000.00 to fix both. 5) Water pump out at 32,000 miles, driver & pass window regulator replaced $$$. This has cost me more in repairs than my 32 foot sail boat ! GM has ZERO customer service when it come to warranty, ZERO confidence in their product but damm I love this 12.5 mpg beast. I pack 4 kids / 2 dogs and


Favorite Features

Review

New tranny at 71,000. Now offers a 5 year/100k warranty for all cars 2007 & newer. Did not help me and my $2000 bill. My tranny guy told me last year that these trucks only last till 70,000. He was off by 1k. Merry Christmas. Thanks GMC!

2006 GMC Yukon XL SUV Denali 4dr SUV AWD (6.0L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I've driven this vehicle up mountain roads, cross-country, my own driveway 1.5 miles and a 1,500' climb in elevation in snow, sleet, rain, ice, black ice and it has never failed me. I am in love with this extraordinary vehicle. Comfortable, heated seats, dvd player for the grandkids, manuverability, tight turns, easy to park, manage and haul anything. I've never had a problem with it. Forget everything else, I'd buy this all over again. 15.6 mpg at 4,500' average elevation and I am safe. I traded in a 1998 Suburban that my Son still drives, our rigs are trouble free, no problems, change oil every 3,000 miles and you're good to go. GMC you've got me.


Favorite Features

AWD, heated seats, steering wheel controls, dual air conditioning, power everything, extremely comfortable seating, sun roof. My favorite thing is that I know I can get in, turn the key and she's always ready to go. She doesn't complain about anything. Go YUKON XL DENALI.


Suggested Improvements

Absolutely none!

Review

Great design.This is the third Yukon. 1995,2001 and now a 2006. This one has been extremely disappointing. Had to rebuild the transmission at 58000 miles. The truck hauls kids and groceries. Dealer actually charged me $100 to tell me the transmission was broken. I don't understand why the company doesn't stand behind the truck. Cost $2,500 to repair. Would not purchase another one because of my experience.


Favorite Features

I like the interior, exterior, the ride. the protection.


Suggested Improvements

GM has lost a good customer because they would not back up their product and the service at the dealer was lousy.
