The pros of having a GMC Yukon.
This vehicle has room for a family of four to fit comfortably. My daughter plays softball so it does hold all the gear that we need for short trips. The only thing I would change is to have a suburban or xl to have more room for longer trips. I bought this vehicle used 6 years ago and I have had to replace the transmission. It has 220, 000 miles on it. I have done routine maintenance and it still runs good. I like the dual temperature upfront so the driver and passenger can be comfortable at the same time. I also like that it has temperature control for the back sets. My kids can set their own temperature. I would also like the garment hooks not only in the very back but in the second row of seats. This vehicle does have drink holders in the back which is helpful. I would like a cup holders in the door too.
GMC Denali � the money pit.
From the moment I purchased this vehicle (used). I have had 1 thing after another go wrong. The vehicle was 10 years old & only had approximately 75,000 miles on it, yet almost immediately I had to replace the transmission! I have replaced the starter (3 x�s), the alternator, & the fuel pump. Then it went awhile & it was the luxury car it is supposed to be. Then things started falling apart again! Right now, it gets so hot inside the car when you drive (even w/the a/c on!) It is like driving around in an oven! I do not know what�s wrong. But the car officially makes me feel unsafe when driving so I am getting rid of it.
My 2005 GMC Yukon is awesome!! No problems with motor, transmission, brakes, etc.
Some lights off on steering wheel, dash. Gas mileage could be better - 14 mpg. Feel very secure & safe driving & riding in the Yukon. Being a heavy vehicle is a definite plus. Awesome performance, very reliable, extremely comfortable! Love the DVD player, heated seats, on star & Sirius xm! Plenty of room for the grands plus luggage. Paint job has held up well. Leather seats are showing some wear, but are very comfortable with the adjustable seat option. Great Bose' speakers! Wish I could afford a new one because this one is getting old, but the cost is just too much for someone retired & on a limited income. Best vehicle I ever owned!
