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


Review

Besides being an incredible gas
guzzler, this is an awesome vehicle,
(short bus).Do not buy for "primary
vehicle" or cuz "I'll look cool in a
Denali" vehicle. Cuz for one,a Denali
is ONLY efficient and sufficient to own
as a primary vehicle when your second
car is a 14 seater stretch Hummer limo,
and no, you probably don't look as cool
as you think you do rollin' in your
Denali cuz most of the people that even
realize that it is a Denali and not a
Tahoe, are to busy thinking about how
cool THEY are rollin' in a Denali. Most
people that can appreciate how
sweet,cool and expensive a Denali is
have one themselves.


Best Features

Bose system,AWD,heated(should also have cooled)seats & the power.The "marquess" running across the dash is awesome as well!


Worst Features

The coating around the cup holder/ashtray. That stuff has the consistency of eternally,almost dry nail polish. And the cup holder comes off w/ the cup almost everytime you pick up your drink! I think it may be suffering from seperation anxiety.

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.
