2008 GMC Yukon SLT great car overall

My Yukon was a great alternative to a minivan. It has 3 row seating which provides me with the space I need to fit my three children�s car seats comfortably while still being stylish. It has vents in each row as well as a separate temperature gauge for the front and back seats. Our Yukon came with a quality Bose speaker system that sounds great on any volume. Some other features I enjoy about our Yukon are its leather seats that make for easy cleanup, heated seats on each side, sunroof, TV screens on back of headrests, 4 wheel drive, and separate heating and cooling adjusts for either side. Performance wise it has held up well over the three years we've had it. We have only had to get regular maintenance like oil changes, tire rotations, brakes and rotors during its 180,000 miles. I would highly recommend this car to anyone, but especially those with multiple children who aren't ready to drive a minivan.

2008 GMC Yukon XL sport utility vehicle.

The GMC Yukon is a great vehicle for the family. We can all fit comfortably. The seats are actually comfortable for the family to sit in, as well as the space is plenty for most people. We have had minor issues with trim coming loose and rattling. We have also had a recurring fuel system issue. We have replaced multiple components of the fuel system, mostly having to do with vapor recovery, multiple times. The airbag light has come on twice with repairs that are both different, but costly. We do like the ride of the vehicle. It is easy for people to get into the back seat. The engine seems to have plenty of power. We often pull trailers and it pulls quite well with an average trailer. Once you get over 6, 000 pounds, it works more, but you can definitely tell the trailer is there.

Looks great but has issues.

I love that this car has seat warmers. It's the first car I've had that has a camera to help back you up. I also, love the Bose speakers and electric side mirrors. Performance and reliability are overall great. Problems with this yukon are the gas Mileage. I wish we could get better gas mileage out if it. Another problem are the cracks in the dashboard that naturally occur. Because of these cracks a little pressure is released from the airbags which sends a warning signal to the dashboard. These warnings are always on and there is nothing I can do about it. Another problem with this car is the major lack of storage space. We can't utilize the back space because nothing will fit. If we want to go to the lake we have to pack everything in the walking space blocking everyone in.
