2008 GMC Yukon SLT great car overall

2008 GMC Yukon SLT w/4SA

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.

Looks great but has issues.

2008 GMC Yukon SLT w/4SA

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.

Love my GMC Yukon comfortable and reliable.

2008 GMC Yukon SLT w/4SA

Love the bucket seats in back and the comfort of the seats! Have trouble with my window motors breaking. And the suspension has been giving me problems but overall I have had very little problems with my SUV. I would buy another one in a heartbeat if they weren't so expensive.
