2002 GMC Yukon Denali AWD 4dr SUV (6.0L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Last vehicle was a 96 Suburban. Use it to tow a boat. Nice size and handling. Excellent stereo, great climate control in hot weather, rides nice but front seats lack support in our opinion and steering is too light, no road feel. Muffler had to be replaced when heat shield separated. Averaging 13.6 mpg overall.


Favorite Features

Stereo, climate control, overall ride and towing ability.


Suggested Improvements

Wind noise is a little high (from side view morrors?) Redesign front seats and more feel to the steering.

2002 GMC Yukon Denali AWD 4dr SUV (6.0L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Very nice truck.... went from a BMW X5 4.4i because I needed more room and have no regrets so far. Solid looks, style, performance and an exceptionally quiet and refined ride.


Favorite Features

Heated seats, sound system (with mute button!), 6.0 V8, ride, ride, ride (not to mention the tight turning radius) and lots of room!


Suggested Improvements

Lousy MPG, move cruise control from TS stick to steering wheel.

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


Review

My previous vehicle was a 96 Pathfinder...given the Yukon is a larger vehicle...but the drive is soooo much better. The V8 engine has alot of kick to it, but not too the point where is throws you into the back of your chair. I've had it 24 hours, and I look forward to the next 100,000 miles with my Yukon.


Favorite Features

V8 Engine, 8-way power seats, 3rd Row seats, control


Suggested Improvements

better gas milage.

Review

GOOD LOOKS POOR FIT ON ASSEMBLY. 13MPG TERRIBLE IN SNOW WILL DONUT ON YOU IN A HEARTBEAT. PENTY OF POWER GOOD SOUND SYSTEM BOSE. TRANSMISSION NEEDS ATTENTION. REAR WIPER JUMPS EVERY TIME YOU DIM HEADLIGHTS OR USE TURN SIGNAL. ENGINE RATTLES ON COLD TAKEOFF DEALER SAID THIS WAS NORMAL. SOUNDS LIKE A ROD COMING OUT.


Favorite Features

SOUND SYSTEM DESIGN LOOKS


Suggested Improvements

MPG, MPG, MPG. BETTER FIT ON OUTSIDE DOORS HANG WRONG HEADLIGHT ASSEMBLY GAPS TO BODY. REAR LIFTGATE TRAPS DIRT. NEEDS SEAL

2002 GMC Yukon Denali AWD 4dr SUV (6.0L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Have had this vehicle for two months and so far it has been a joy to drive and ride in. It is a very good looking and comfortable vehicle. The power it has coupled with the handling characteristics make it a pleasure to drive. The kids love all the features it has. They can watch movies every where we go.


Favorite Features

Heated leather seats. DVD player. 6.0 liter, 320 HP.


Suggested Improvements

Do something with the cruise control. Put it somewhere besides on the end of the turn signal. You have everything at your fingertips, but have to take your eyes off the road to find the cruise hidden behind the steering wheel.

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


Review

I swore off GM in the early 90's and have owned a BMW and Volvo since. This truck changed my mind. It's a wonderful vehicle that rides more like a luxury car than a truck. Of the three cars we own, the family always loads into this one. It also has function with this beauty and comfort. It eats up snow, mud, and everything else we've put in front of it. Thought GM had fixed quality problems and also purchased GMC Jimmy... MISTAKE! As good as the Yukon is, the Jimmy is as bad. We are trading that POS in after the winter!


Favorite Features

5.3 L engine is a must. I would never buy a vehicle without a sunroof, and this is no exception. Would also recommend the tow package.


Suggested Improvements

Had one rattle in the driver door @ 12k mi, but the dealer took care of that. Other than hauling kids from time to time, not sure the 3rd row seat was worth buying.

Review

Great vehicle, quality all around. I've got the 5.3L engine and it's awesome. Not the best on gas, but I knew that before I bought it.


Favorite Features

Smooth ride, powerful engine, roomy, leather seats, memory seats, safety features. Althought it doesn't drive like one, I feel like I'm in a tank.


Suggested Improvements

Get rid of the daytime running lights, that fad ran out.
