Bought used in 2009, although I have a 5.3 and it is only 2wd. It rides and drives smooth. Local dealership sold it to me for 15,000$ with 49,000mi when it BB for 19,000$ at the time, found out it had a bad battery, rear right passenger window didn't work, and the dvd system was going out, not to mention the water pump was leaking. The starter went out as well.I replaced all with better more reliable parts, jokes on the dealership, the only challenging repair was replacing the DVD system with a bigger screen system.Very spacious interior, a little cheap with plastic but I can over look that due to the good reliability.Fits a family of 5 comfortably,if you want more trunk space buy an XL.

CD Player Awful

After only 5 years and little use of the 6-CD player it failed to release out 6 CD's and won't perform any function. Looks like a replacement is in order.

I've own this Denali for four years, and I give it high marks on almost everything. I've also own a Ford Expedition and Toyotas Sequioa, and all have good and bad traits. Denali has the best motor, driver comfort, convenience options, and the reliablility has been great. The back seats suck for adult comfort, but my small kids like the captains chairs. The cheaply made front dash and instrument panel peel away. The dash and skweaky door panels are irritating enough to shop at Toyota or Ford next time. The space behind the third seat is stupidly small, and needs to be big enough for a cooler and a couple luggage bags.

Great!

This vehicle has been unbelievable! I've already put 216,000 miles on it and the only thing replaced were the rear shocks and load leveling pump. I tow a boat 26' boat with incredible ease. Great power and handling. I owned two Ford Expeditions before and they can't hold a candle to the Yukon Denali. Great comfort (I drive over 200 miles/day). If the car went down tomorrow I would still feel I got my money's worth. Can't wait for the next one.

Great SUV for safety and style

My husband has been begging me for years to go hunting with him. Of course, I refuse. Bambi? Come on! Well after a trip thru the Rockies I can say that he will now have a harder time convincing me go. I can officially say that I have been hunting once and I am one for one. Yup! 100% deer slayer. Or should I be honest and say my Yukon is? I was so skeptical about buying a vehicle this size, but after a mule deer ran right out in front of me at dusk in the Rockies I am not skeptical anymore. And, the On-Star system was awesome. I couldn't get a signal on my cell phone, but they came right thru. They contacted the local sheriff and my husband. I love my Yukon! I am averaging 17 mpg. Thanks GMC

Great Car After 3 Years

I've had this car for over 3 years on a 4 year GMAC lease. It's been extremely reliable and trouble free (only problem was a defective rear window switch replaced under warranty), and very comfortable to drive on a 1 hour snail type freeway commute each way on L.A. freeways. My only complaint: local gas mileage is awful (highway is OK). My overall mileage average per the built in computer is 12.9 with about 90% local (not highway) driving.

06 Denali is worth every penny!

I bought the Denali as a used off lease vehicle. It has been fantastic so far, with the fuel economy being the only gripe. The 6.0L engine is very strong, and the big fella loves to cruise the interstates. It holds a tremendous amount of cargo and the Bose sound, navi and DVD keep everyone happy. Luckily, I haven't had any problems in the first 5K miles I have driven it, and all of the features work really well.

I purchased my vehicle thinking total quality. Wrong. The front interior around the steering wheel, navigation screen and CD player keep peeling and chipping away. This is something I have found to happen in older models and other GMC models. Also, I owned the car less than 2 years when the transmission had to be extensively repaired. Now GM doesn't want to replace/repair the interior plastic even though it is poor craftmanship. No more GM's for me. I will stick with Ford or some other American car.

Love this truck

Took this truck to PA, NY, and FL and it rides beautifully. Is firm and stable on the road. Has great acceleration. Came with all the bells and whistles for entertainment. No options except 20 inch rims this year love that! Gets good gas mileage into and on the road trip

Good Buy / Low resale

The only complaint I have with this vehicle is the passenger seat. It squeaks while driving. I had the dealer take a look at it and they repaired it for a little and it is back. I have not had anyone over 230 lbs in this chair and it will do it with no load in the chair.

We used to have an '04 Yukon Denali but sold it . We bought one of the last new '06 Yukons Denalis and got the 0 financing. We love this truck. This is loaded with nav, rear DVD, everything.. I'm glad we finally got another one. Love OnStar. We just got our first e mail from our Yukon telling us it needs nothing. Thats too cool. Thanks GM for building such great cars and trucks!

First day that I purchased my Yukon, I had to drive it in a snow blizzard. The car handled great, its the best SUV that I've owned. My SUV is has leather, xm radio, dvd player, bose speakers, third row seat, heated seats, car is very roomy and spacious. Would recommend to other prospective buyers. If you don't need a 4X where you live, buy a 2X, you'll save money but have some the same features... Great CAR!!!

An upgrade from a 2001 Trailblazer, this vehicle is great. Since the overall rating of the Yukon was far better than my "guinnea pig year" Trailblazer, peace of mine was definitely a factor in our choice. Handling is very stable (no scary moments arount curves or corners); cargo space (after removing the 3rd row seating) is very spacious; the choice of the "bucket style" back seat is a great feature. Although I miss the smaller Trailblazer, my comfort and peace of mind in our Yukon make up for it. No complaints, problems, or 'quirky' nuisances for four months. Gas mileage - during the break-in period average 17 mpg; now about 18 mpg (which is less than 1 mpg less than the Trailblazer).

What a Ride!

This SUV is great, a little on the pricey side but worth it. We own a 2002 Yukon XL. This new Yukon is loaded with all kinds of new things (like a button that brings the gas pedal closer). It drives solid and smooth. The kids love the DVD package. I love the XM radio. If you haven't driven one- you should. I am glad that we bought another Yukon.

A wonderful driving experience. Smooth ride, excellent handling, extremely comfortable. Nicest SUV I've owned so far (#5). Has all the horns and bells and whistles, and they all work.

Our 2006 Chevy Tahoe is a great vehicle. It is roomy, rides comfortably, has plenty of performance. It is the best vehicle we have had. Even better than our 1999 Surburan, that's hard to beat.

The 2006 Yukon is sound and has been trouble free. It is quiter than my previous 2002 Yukon and drives smother. The style is basically the same which I find as very satisfactory. It handles well on the road, off the road as well as in town. To my surprise, I like the third row of seats...which are also easy to pull out and reinstall.

After growing out of a BMX X5 the Denali has quickly become the household favorite. Plenty of room, handles very well and gets moving when you want it to. Tried the Z71 and it failed miserably compared to the Denali. We also bought the vehicle with the 20 inch rimms and it is terrific on the highway. Over 70 mph it lumbers in regards to the handling but we love this truck. Navigation is good but Magellan Roadmate is a much better option so if you want to save money skip the Nav package and get the Roadmate. Well crafted vehicle.

Excellent SUV for the price. If you are looking for a luxury SUV to provide the best performance, handling, comfort, cargo capacity, amentities, technology, reliability, then this is the SUV to purchase. In addition, 0% financing and excellent prices. Tested MANY SUV's and the only other to beat this one out is the Toyota Land Cruiser/Lexus 450 but much pricier and Toyota salespeople are terrible to deal with.

My Yukon rides better than my 2004 Tahoe. It has great performance, acceptable fuel economy, and is very comfortable on the road.

This vehicle is fun to drive and, turns many heads. I get compliments on it every time I take it out on the road. Gas mileage is even better than what the manufacturer states because I used 5w30 synthetic oil at the first oil change. Presently I am getting 17 miles to the gallon on a combined hiway and city driving.

Best SUV Out There!

I traded in my 04' 8 CY Touareg and have not looked back. I test drove the Escalade (Couldn't justify the extra $$$ for basically the same ride - Keep the back-up sensors and fancy center console clock and I'll keep the $8K), Yukon and Z71 and this one was the winner by far. Only 80 miles on it and it already gets about 12 MPG (Better than VW) and it isn't even broken in yet! Ride, interior, quality and power are all top notch. DVD/Nav/XM Radio package are a must, especially in the mountains where there is no FM signal. Captian chairs in the rear are like sitting in a recliner.
