I bought the Yukon new in 09 thinking the hybrid would save me some money on gas, well it did not preform nearly the way it was proclaimed to. It seemed to be cheaply built. The remove-able 3rd row was almost unusable as they were so heavy to put back in that it took two people
The navigation system was awesome
Take some hints from the foreign vehicles and put added quality in!
We did our research on a large SUV which could accomplish the flexibility in travel and towing. Along with the gas mileage for our family. After extensive research we felt the premium paid for the Yukon Hybrid was the choice for us. It is a superior family vehicle for city pick up and delivery of children and a great vacation transport.
Great towing capability. Highway mileage on vacation around 25MPG. Combined mileage 21 MPG. Towing two horse trailer 15MPG. Around town 18MPG. It is a very comfortable car. I feel my family is very safe with the features and size of this vehicle.
Storage could be better with third row seats in. Third row seats are heavy. Have to remove third row seats for better storage. I was hoping for better mileage in town. But 18 MPG is not bad for a vehicle this size. You do need to "learn" to drive the vehicle to maximize higher MPG for city driving.
