2011 GMC YUKON great mom car

2011 GMC Yukon SLE

Over all I really love this car. It is spacious and comfortable for all four members of our family. We can haul all of the kids softball gear plus suitcases for out of town trips. This is a heavier style vehicle which is both good and bad. Sometimes this makes it harder to steer smoothly but it does make us feel safer on the interstate driving next to the eighteen wheelers.

GMC Yukon Perfect for large family!

2011 GMC Yukon SLE

The truck is fast. The only thing I had to replace was the car battery. The sound quality of the radio is mediocre. The truck is spacious and holds my family of six plus luggage perfectly. I bought the truck used and I feel safe sitting up high versus low. The rear view back up helps me a lot.

- Christina L

Awesome leather and heated seats like a luxury vehicle. Nice trim. Very reliable.

2011 GMC Yukon SLE

The car is very reliable with only a few times having problems to start in years. Looks great and has awesome leather and heated seats. Real head turner that will definitely get you from point a to point b. Also a pretty powerful SUV as well. Can haul a boat or camper with no problem.

- Zack I

Perfect fit that is very roomy

2011 GMC Yukon SLE

Very comfortable for me and my family! I haven't had any issues yet with my vehicle. It is very reliable and has great get up and go. It is very roomy with Bose sound. I really love it!! The only thing I need is tires but that happens over time. 10 out of 10

Great vehicle for its capacity and ride.

2011 GMC Yukon SLE

Very comfortable ride for a truck. Large amount of luggage space even with the third row seat in up position. Reliability has been very good. Best vehicle I have ever owned. Love the four wheel drive system. It's a great riding vehicle on the highway.
