Review of the 2002 GMC Yukon

  • A comfortable and easy-to-drive SUV loaded with premium features.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Powerful V8 lineup, roomy cabins, extensive list of standard features.

  • Cons

    Interior fit-and-finish concerns, still too similar to the Chevy Tahoe.

  • What's New for 2002

    GMC's strong-selling Yukon heads into 2002 with few changes. The 5300 V8 is now ultralow emission certified (ULEV) for California. For states with less restrictive emission requirements, the Yukon offers flexible fuel capability with the use of cleaner burning gasoline blends. A more efficient starter, more durable steering gear housing and LATCH child seat attachments anchors round out the Yukon's upgrades for 2002.

Excellent truck

Vehicle: 2002 GMC Yukon SLE 2WD 4dr SUV (4.8L 8cyl 4A)

Bought the Yukon new in Dec. 2001. Drove it for business (mostly highway) to around 180,000 in 2008. Since then my sons have taken the truck to college with them. Now has approx. 215,000. I have always changed the oil between 3-5000 miles. We have only had to do routine maintenance (brakes, belts, tires etc.) The only irritating issue has been the drivers side window motor. Have had to replace this 3 times. Otherwise very, very solid truck. In fact, bought a 2009 Yukon and love it. The key to any car is to keep up with routine maintenance and don't beat it to death. Take care of your car.




Love it!

Vehicle: 2002 GMC Yukon SLE 2WD 4dr SUV (4.8L 8cyl 4A)

Bought this truck at an off lease five years ago. Just got back from a 4000 mile road trip with no issues (115,000 miles with just routine maintainance). Nice leather interior, stylish exterior (with 20" rims from 2007 Yukon) plenty of 12v outlets & plenty of power (with the 5.7L you hardly know your trailer is back there). Fuel milage (not great) beats my friends with Lexus G470 and Lincoln Navigator with 16-18 mpg. Before my big road trip, I overhauled the brakes, plugs, belts, filters, hoses etc. Hadn't done the brakes in 60,000 miles and I was amazed to see that the massive rear brakes had about 60% life left on them and the original plugs were almost like new.

Vehicle: 2002 GMC Yukon SLE 2WD 4dr SUV (4.8L 8cyl 4A)

I love this vehicle. It is just big enough to haul everything and small enough to enjoy! The ride and comfort surpasses any vehicle that I have owned in the past. The only complaint that I might have is the access to the 3 row of seats..but then I very rarely use them and don't have to get ride there anyway. There is not anything I can say bad about my vehicle. In the 3 1/2 years that I have driven this vehicle we have only had to replace the starter and one of the u-joints.That in my opinion can only be called reliability to the max!




Easy to drive

Our Yukon is easy to drive. It has been totally reliable and we like the way it handles in traffic. We have carried 8 passengers at times with no noticeable effort or reduced handling ability.

Vehicle: 2002 GMC Yukon SLE 2WD 4dr SUV (4.8L 8cyl 4A)

62,500 miles and not a single repair. This is my third vehicle of this type (two Tahoes and one Yukon) and I will buy a forth when I'm done with this one. Vortec 5300 is smooth and powerful making it a breeze to merge and pass on the freeway. The tight turning radius (better than a Camry or Accord) makes it equally at home around town. The 2WD is a much better ride than the 4WD version in my opinion.
