Uses a lot of gas but for the most part very reliable vehicle very powerful truck Bought it for 1200 or 233,000 miles was a little skeptical if this vehicle is maintain You could easily get 300k One of the best engines have a built only issues you're probably have fuel pump but before you replace the fuel pump check the fuel pump relay a very nice diagnose problem do not hesitate on his truck just drove this truck 800 miles nonstop great handling great power I bought this as a back up better than most new cars that I've rented orsay new trucks

One of the other reviews says that there is a misfire in the 5th cylinder. Mine misfires from the 6th cylinder and shakes like crazy when put under a load. There is a TSB from GM about the problem. It is a defect from the factory. What happens is the sleeve on the valve stems deforms from the heat and begins to bind. Instead of a recall, GM chooses to ignore the fact that these engines are defective. I called GM to see if they would repair the defect and they declined. Last one I will buy. Had to replace the transmission, fuel pump, radiator and the engine is screwed up. Plus the door handles are falling apart and most of the power door locks stopped working. Lemon

I purchased this vehicle in 2008 with only 66000 miles. A year later and 85000, i still love it. I did run into a repairs like an alternator, water pump, fuel pump and rear brakes that needed to be replaced. I did most of the work myself. The ride quality is great i feel like i'm riding on air. The room is awesome, i love the fact that its sort off like a truck but with the SUV look. I love my truck even though i needed to replace parts on it, but it is 10 years old.

I traded in my 03 Pathfinder for the Yukon. I haven't looked back since i love the way it drives, and the cargo space is 3 times better than the Pathfinder. Gas mileage is about the same as the smaller SUV's 14 city 17- 18 hwy. I have replaced the rear brakes and front brakes, I need to replace the water pump. I do most of the repairs myself, the parts are not expensive they are easy to come by. It can drive thru the snow with no worries. I love the truck and will not get rid of it anytime soon.

I bought my Yukon on NOV of 08, its a great suv. It handles good in the snow and around town. So far had to replace rear brake and power steering pump. I love to drive it the only thing i dont like is the 255 hp. but its still enough to keep up with the newer vehicles.

I purchased this 9mo ago it had a few mile on it 150000 to be exact but thats how I purchase all my cars. This thing had so many problems with it I am shocked. I am usually a Ford person but love the looks of the Denali. Wow never again. The slip yoke problem on this thing is enouph to drive a person crazy. The mechanics cant seem to fix it or even find the problem, but they sure can hear it banging, it feels like the entire drive line is going to fall off. So Im done with GM back to Ford!!

I bought my Yukon New and have owned it for 10 years now with 165,000 Miles. It was purchased for the four wheel drive. The drive train has performed flawless. Early repairs were leaky heater hose eng. block nipple; Exhaust gaskets RR; tightened the oil filter/cooler engine mounting. The original brakes are undersized and I replaced the front rotors with cryogenic cooled/hardened “Praise” units at 20k along with their stage III pads, rear brakes just the “Praise” shoes. These rotors lasted 120,000 miles. One problem engine not starting after a foggy nite or sitting awhile...The security light is on. OK after setting awhile. Overall the vehicle is stable with lower than Honda maint. costs.

Good truck for its age

I bought this vehicle with 77K miles on it, one owner, maintenance record available. Have had to replace the water pump, fuel pump, spark plugs wires cap and rotor all of which are probably a maintenance issue at over 100K miles now. Have had problems with check engine light coming on and code says misfire in 5th cylinder. Have had it worked on at 3 different places and none can figure out the problem for sure...is it a valve or injector problem?? Probably a $700- $1500 fix. Never has left me stranded anywhere. Good overall vehicle with lots of options for its age.

I see a lot of reviews of people saying that is is a poor vechile. Well don't forget that it wa made in 1999! It's not perfect like it was the day you pucharsed it, if you got it brand new like we did. It has been in our famliy since it was bought and has brought a lot of fun to us. What year are we in...2008 so yeah it's 9 years old. Of cousre it's gonna be having problems. It's old not new no more! I love my Yukon and feel very safe and love pushing faster than I should but I don't care because it can handle it. 255 hp is something!

Bought my Yukon brand new. Love the looks & comfort. Don't like the gas mileage & repair costs. Brakes are poor, replaced head gasket, brake lines, brakes, fuel pump. Have 93K miles; exterior is mint but told the underside is rusting out under me. Rear doors leak and hinges sqweak. This is my 3rd GMC truck and I thought I would never change. Now I'm not so sure.

We bought the Denali when it first came out, and it has served well. It needed the typical GM repairs(Fuel pump, fuel injectors, manifold gasket, weak brakes)but when they are all fixed, she still runs well. Now it's lifted 2.5", has Brembo brake calipers, disc brake rear conversion, full MSD ignition, and sport sway bars. It handles great, tows well, and starts perfectly. The V8 is so smooth. Can't believe it has 150,000k miles on it. Only beef is the low mpg's. At least it takes regular gas. This SUV has become my weekend toyhauler.

Kept us safe in a bad accident, but...

Horrible mileage-about 10MPG. Also so many repairs required on a 5-6-7 year old car! Brakes only lasted 20000 miles. Door handles and hinges needed replacing. Needed new brake master and vacum. However all is forgiven, because I had a very nasty accident and my passenger and I both walked away safely.

Love the 'KON

Bought in '02 with 28K miles - currently have 93k miles. This Yukon has been a great truck. Tow 5K lb trailer to beach and to mountains with no problems. I did however put a 10K lb tranny cooler on myself, well worth the effort for the peace of mind when towing. 2 boys (getting ready to be 3) love it as well. Put up a pet gate for the dogs when we head to the hills. It has truly been a utility vehicle. Have had to replace battery once, carmax had a battery in it that was >100 crank amps too small. Brake pads, water pump gasket at 70K and drive belt at 80K. Threw on a RAVIN perf exhaust and pipes, 2 sons love the sound of the 5.7L when we get rolling. In short love it - great utility.

This truck is far greater than any Ford ever built. It is the perfect combo of a heavy duty truck and a luxury vehicle. Anyone who doesn't like the gas mileage think about this, you are pushing about 6000 lbs down the road. It is still a truck and for that the mileage is actualy not that bad, depending how you drive it. The Denali is the most comfortable vehicle I have ever driven, car or truck.

Purchased with 30,000+ miles on it, by 120,00 it was toast. Comfortable and roomy interior, great sound system and dash design. Travels well on highway. Disappointed with performance. Rear drum brakes went a week after purchase; engine ruined due to gasket/coolant problems even though scrupulously maintained. We've gotten well over 180,000 on our other vehicles. Last GMC big rig I'll buy.

I bought it a year old w/ 36k miles for $25k. I wish it had a 3rd row seat available back then. It's time to trade it in for a minivan or Freestyle wagon. Trade in is $8K so it cost me $3400 a year in deperciation. Mechanically truck has held up very well. The fuel pump went out at 100k. Cost $1000 (mainly because we were stranded out of town and could not shop around for repair). ABS doesn't work. There was a recall in Canada, but it doesn't apply to the US. It will cost about $800 to fix. Intake gasket leaked ,causing loss of heat/coolant - cost $800 to fix. Overall I'm very happy witht he choice. The truck has become too unreliable for my wife and young kids, so it's time for a new car. I'd definitely get the 2005 or later Expedition if I got another SUV. Have drivien my dad's and brothers on a few trips and they are outstanding

Overall, I am satisfied with the vehicle and expect several more years. I do have issues with the following: - Brakes: front set is too small, rears don't automatically adjust, a common problem with this model. The bulbs behind the radio/CD buttons died. The dealer said the entire unit had to be replaced .The CD player is very poor quality, was repaired twice, and I will replace it with a better unit; The intake manifold cracks, another too common problem for '99, it should have been subject of a recall. The center console should have come with a lock.

I've owned just about every Ford and Chevy make out there, but GMC made a convert out of me. I'm now the proud owner of my third GMC and I've loved every one. Call it "Professional grade" or whatever, but when it comes to reliability, comfort and performance, my GMC's have all been a cut above any of the Fords or Chevys I've owned.

A single mom who is dependant on this sturdy automobile to get her family and friends (both elderly and young) safely around town. Family and friends ride along comfortably with plenty of leg room and added room for groceries and/or carry ons. When properly cared for, it has proven dependable and rides smoothly. I enjoy it very much and like it especially during winter season. I highly recommend this year and model.

Overall very satisfied with the vehicle. Received plenty of great compliments on looks and comfort. The only problems were coolant system related which ended up costing me a grand total of $500 over four years...not bad! I have heard of brake problems from others with the same vehicle which seem to be very common on the 2000's NOT the 99's for whatever reason. Great room for beach trips, moving, friends and/or weekend getaways. Thanks GMC for the great memories. -Chris Gorham

I have reached the 100000 mile mark. Still like the Yukon. However, intake manifold gasket replaced, apparently a very prevelent problem on the OEM gasket after the 60000 mile mark hold on to your check book 400-800 dollar repair depend who you call etc., fuel pump a costly 200-315 dollar part depend where bought, water pump, and wiper motor. Rides just as smooth at 50 mph as at 80 mph. Tranmission still no problem. Everything else good.

I read a review on this site that said their yukon shakes at around 70mph. Mine does too. There is no evidence of abnormal tire wear though. Other than that this vehicle has been remarkable. It is a dependable, secure ride. Very smooth ride for an SUV. Press the accelarator with slow and steady pressure for the best acceleration...

This has been an extremely reliable truck in which I have had no major mechanical problems & it currently has 100,600 miles. It is the most comfortable & roomy vehicle I have owned (friends say the back seat feels like your sitting on a couch). Also for being such a big SUV, the ride is very smooth. I have nothing at all bad to say about this truck, I absolutley love it. (Would be nice if the gas milage was a little better, but hey its a BIG truck!!!)

This is the best vehicle I have ever owned, and I'll probably put 200,000 miles on it before I'm done. My only complaint is a common one, the brakes are not suitable for a vehicle of this weight (A problem corrected in the 2000 model). If you don't drive like a maniac you'll have no problems stopping, but the front brakes will wear out quickly no matter what you driving habits are. Also, if you set your cruise control to 65, you can get 18-19 MPG on the highway. That's pretty good for a 5000 pound truck.

I was concerned about reliability given some of the reviews I had read on the internet. Anyway, picked this up at 47K and now have 69K on it. Changed the oil and lubricated the chassis every 3.5K. No problems to report The YUKON is big and comfortable with smooth acceleration from that big V8. The dual AC can make it COLD fast and the heated seats were such a relief this past winter while the car warms up. Would not buy it new! Too much money! But a few years old w/ under 50K is a fair price. Too wide for my garage unless I fold the side mirrors

What could you expect after stepping out of a Isuzu Trooper? This "truck" is like sitting in a Lazy Boy recliner and coasting at 90 on the Interstate. Sure the gas mileage hurts but Bush is taking care of that for me. Solid as a rock, I never have to worry about my children's safety in this beauty.

The 5.7 vortex 350 out preforms most other trucks. The ride is simmilar to that of a Park Ave. I think i am sold for life on Yukons....

Having trade my 00 Sierra w/5.3 ext. cab for a 99 Yukon wasn't sure but glad we did it. Much more family friendly. Since new body styles (00+ models) and features are more wanted and much more $$$ makes these models much more affordable. Our SLT has every option you could get for 2WD. Have had ours 3 mon. Runs great. Feels just as powerful as the 5.3 and has more torque. Perhaps not as refined in delivering the pwr. Fuel econ. is worse 13-15 city but expected that. Nice quiet ride. The Michelin XC make for a good secure drive.

a lot of problems after warranty expired

The vehicle has performed excellent, is a great car. Gas mileage is not too great but I was aware and accepted this when I purchased the vehicle. I and my family have been very pleased to date. The amenities are great and the car has been a tank through deep water ( we were in a flood last year, and in snow )

MY Denali

This has been the best darn SUV I have owned or driven. Not one problem except for the short brake pad life.

This truck is a great big tub of goo. The only reason to have one is for towing. For that, it is much better than the Expedition, as the steering and ride is far superior. "Hey - where did all my gas go?"
