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


Review

My Yukon Denalli is an excellent
vehicle. I purchased the "black
diablo" to serve my firm as a
comfortable way to transport myself
and many of my employees to
various meetings and job sites
around the Mid-Atlantic and Ohio
Valley regions.

The vehicle is comfortable for all
during our average 3-6 hour trips.
She handles well and gives one the
sense of safety in almost all
situations.

I am delighted to have made the
purchase and would strongly
recommend the Yukon XL to those
interested in the purchase.

One draw back: I would only ask for
better gas mileage. The beast can
certainly eat-up her share of
gasoline.


Best Features

Comfortable seating, automatic recall adjusting seating, seat heater, bose sound system, too many to limit to one


Worst Features

Improve the gas mileage and this one is a grand slam

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


Review

My 96 Diesel got 11-20mpg. Denali XL
gets 8mpg city 14 hgy. Painted rear
bumper scratches easily. NAV antenna is
under dash and has poor signal. Onstar
is on the roof.


Best Features

Navigation system -- although it would be nice to not have to press the lawyer achnowledgement every time I start the vehicle. Heated seats make winter mornings a pleasure.


Worst Features

Bring back the diesel option Add backup sensors and a couple of big backup lights under the bumper. Make onstar and xm an option -- its unfair to make us pay for something that we don't want. Also Onstar on nearly all GM vehicles will stop working in 2008

2003 GMC Yukon XL 1500 SLE 4WD 4dr SUV (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

In 18 mths the car has died and had to
be junped or towed 9 times.
Service kept changing parts but could
not find the actual problem
Went to lemon law arbitration and GM
settled to "keep me as a customer"
I recently stopped two different
people with The Denali version and
they love the truck except that both
said they had been stuck on numerous
occasions
When running a great truck.

2003 GMC Yukon XL 2500 SLE 4WD 4dr SUV (6.0L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Very comfortable and well appointed. I
love the quadrasteer, when it works!
The quadrasteer has malfunctioned and
been repaired now 3 times in 30K
miles. Replaced 2 AC compressors and a
broken muffler (internal components of
muffler were broken). Repairs can be
costly unless under warranty. I
commute 120 miles per day and the
Yukon is very comfortable and
powerful. I would highly recommend
this vehicle again ONLY if an extended
warranty was included. I average 14mpg.


Best Features

Quadrasteer,radio controls on the steering wheel, 3-way climate control and enough cargo room for a football team make this Yukon a must buy if size matters and/or you need to tow something.


Worst Features

Warranty to 75,000 miles should be STANDARD considering the cost of repair on this beast. Initial build quality needs improvement.
