2003 GMC Yukon Denali AWD 4dr SUV (6.0L 8cyl 4A)


Review

for the money, this is the worst investment you can make. the interior design is the same in the $30K yukon as the $52K denali, and looks and feels cheap. the denali is bulky, sways significantly with bumps, and the steering is so loose there is not the slightest feel of agility with this vehicle. further, i have had multitude of problems with the headlights not coming on, as well as problems with reduced engine power and stabilitrack. the navigation is cumbersome, and confusing and is not touchscreen (even the nav on the honda accord is touchscreen!)

Vehicle

2003 GMC Yukon SLE 4WD 4dr SUV (4.8L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Very solid, well built and functional vehicle. Smooth and refined engine even without the overhead cams and the extra valves. Has more than enough power to haul the whole family + guests to the ski slopes. Better than expected fuel economy for this kind of vehicle. I was impressed by the quiet and rattle free interior and the overall build quality, especially considering the experience we had with our 2001 RAV4 (a rattle in the dashbord since day 1, cargo area panel falling off, warped plastic mouldings on the doors and warped brake rotors in just first 3 months of ownership)


Best Features

Engine (power and refinement), ride quality, DVD entertainment system, satellite radio, (and the premium sound system as a whole) 3rd row seating.


Worst Features

Rainsense wipers (they have them available on the Envoy, why not on the Yukon?). Dashboard design could use some freshening.

2003 GMC Yukon Denali AWD 4dr SUV (6.0L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Not since I had my 5.0 liter Mustang, have I sat around trying to think of places that I can drive to. I added a Gibson exhaust, and a AEM Brute Force intake. That gave it more power, and better gas milage. Adding a bug/stone deflecter decreased the mileage by 1 MPG.


Best Features

Power, Ride, XM radio, CLASS


Worst Features

I'm still thinking

2003 GMC Yukon SLE 4WD 4dr SUV (4.8L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Well done, GMC. Much improved build quality. Plenty of power. Same mileage as my '93 K5. Smooth 4WD. almost too smooth.


Best Features

Only one trip to the dealer for a warranty repair in 22K miles.


Worst Features

Intermediate steering linkage QA and design required service at 10K. Front End Alignment was off right out of the shoot. Fully reclining front power buckets would be an improvement.

Review

One thing I've learned about owning this vehicle is that it's very difficult to repair. I have a strong feeling that the training manual at GMC says "if you can't hear it, nothing's wrong." The computer is a little screwy on this truck as well as the overdrive system. Transmission seems to struggle in bumper to bumper traffic. Also, beware the fuel mileage. This vehicle is a gas hog but that's what you do sacrifice for the power. I would recommend the vehicle but be careful about who services it. Very up to date vehicle but not to many up to date mechanics.


Best Features

Extremely comfortable and easily to control. Turning radius is great as well as the radio controls on the steering wheel in the SLT model.


Worst Features

Refine the suspension on this vehicle. While the thrusting has been removed while breaking I feel that durability has been sacrificed as a result. Improve the timing on the overdrive system. Very loose.
