2012 GMC Yukon XL Denali 4dr SUV AWD (6.2L 8cyl 6A)


Traded in Toyota Sienna Limited to better accomodate our family - my wife and I plus four young kids.
We have 7,500 miles on our 2012 Yukon XL Denali.
Price was $60K even before trade, with the additional screen for the third row.

Since we bought the car a few months ago, the DVD player has broken (only used it once) and now the back up camera is broken.

Suprisingly little knee room for the second row, and less, as expected, for the third row.
You can't move the 2nd or 3rd row seat back and forth, like you could in the mini-van.

You can turn the Heat/AC for the rear on and off from the front of the car, but you cant control the temperature.
Bad idea

Regretting this purchase

Best Features

Drives like a vehicle much smaller than its size. Attractive interior and exterior. Very queit and smooth ride. Comfortable seats. OnStar is excellent.

Worst Features

Need temp control for rear zone. Poor quality electronics. Terrible interior organization. Console amounts to one large bucket where you keep your stuff. Have a couple real 110V outlets rather than six poorly placed cigarette type outlets. Need front/back adjustmets for second row. In order to have the Nav map work, you have to have the radio on. Why??? You need to turn the volume down, but leave the radio on.
