So I bought this truck brand new off the lot in 2004, a couple years out of college and starting to make a decent living, with our first child due in a month. There were three on the lot with the options I wanted. Two were made in Mexico, and this one was made in Janesville, WI. Easy choice. Through the past 12 years, this truck has carried us up and down the east coast from Florida to New York, spent weekends driving on the beach in NC, and survived every Pennsylvania snow storm that threatened to thwart our Holiday plans. It brought all four of our newborn children home from the hospital from 2004-2012, towed 10,000 lbs of household goods (the stuff that wouldn't fit in the semi) on our last interstate move, has pulled tree stumps out of the ground, cars out of ditches, and basically made any long trip enjoyable. If on business I have a choice to drive, rather than fly, I'll drive the old Yukon XL every time. Now, in 2016, she is finally starting to look her age. I had to have the hood sprayed last year because the clearcoat was wearing off. Now the roof is suffering the same fate. The sides and rear still look good, though, and there is not a spot of rust. The leather on the driver's seat is starting to tear. As far as maintenance, minor things have happened throughout its life, but no more than expected. The 4wd selector went at around 80k (leaving me on the beach in 2wd--but I still made it out). That was a simple plug and play replacement of around $150. Like an above reviewer mentioned, I also had the oil pump go at around 110k miles. That was the biggest issue, though my wife was smart enough to notice the lack of oil pressure and shut it down before any damage ensued. New oil pump installed was under $1k. I had to replace both front wheel bearings at around 120k, at a cost of around $700. The stepper motor in the speedometer went at around 130k, but it's incredibly easy to remove the cluster (pull the trim off with your fingers, unscrew it, unplug it). I shipped it off to circuitboardmedics.com for a complete overhaul (new lights, stepper motors in gauges, added the transmission temp gauge) for a couple hundred bucks--better than new. Both catalytic converters went around 150k, replaced with generic ones at about $300 each. The battery lasted about 8 years, then I installed an Optima battery which is still good. As far as routine maintenance, I let it break in with standard oil, then went full synthetic starting at 10k, with changes every 5-10k miles thereafter, based on the DIC oil life calculations. To this day, it doesn't burn or leak a drop of oil. I gave it a tune up at 100k, flushed the transmission at 120k, changed the differential oil at 160k. I replaced the junk tires it came with at 20k, then went with BFG All-Terrain TAs which took me to 90k, then All-Terrain KOs to 150k (I let it get out of alignment which hastened their demise), then All-Terrain KO2s which are barely showing wear at over 25k miles. Prices of tires has risen and fallen, but they typically cost about $1100 per set. Basically, it costs money to maintain a vehicle like this. As long as you keep up with the little things as they arise, it will serve you well. The initial cost of this $50k was no small sum to this family starting out, but I've seen so many friends go through multiple $30k vehicles over the period I've owned the Yukon, it's laughable. This truck could suffer a catastrophic engine/transmission failure tomorrow and I could walk away from it feeling content that it was worth every penny. Of course, that's not going to happen. It's still basically a new truck, with 175k on the odometer. Everything works as it should. I have no doubt it will still be reliable at 250k plus. Damn shame that Janesville plant closed down. Those folks sure knew how to build a truck.

comfy and safe land yacht

My parents gave me this car to my senior year of highschool with 245,000 miles on it. Currently it has 265,000 miles and is still going strong. We still haul a full trailer with it and it is working amazing. As the miles pack on some things have become a little faulty such as the AC only works sometimes but I can't really complain because the ride is amazing. I feel extremely safe in it (one time I hit a tree and it only left a little skid mark and dent on the bumper). The mpg is a little problem with prices sometimes but that's the price you pay for the giant engine. She doesn't seem to want to die anytime soon, the car is almost like a part of the family at this point.

Great ride

Have had an 04, 09, and 2015 Yukon (my wife insists on buying these junkers). The 2015 is too new to tell the problems. The 04 and 09 both had oil pump die just past 110K miles, resulting in crushing of the cam shaft and requiring a rebuilt/new engine. Constantly having other problems with hoses, suspension, etc. All these generations of Yukons cost as much as a nice Mercedes, but is nothing more than a glorified S10 Pickup. I have had other GM vehicles from Cadi's to Chevy's. ALL have an expiration date before 150K miles.

Not bad for 10 year old tech.

It's hard to find this thing with any less than 100,000 Miles on it; however, even at this age and mileage it still rides like a your on a cloud. With the rear seat out and the mid seat down, you got 8' of cargo space. enough room to carry full sheets of plywood or sheet rock. The towing ability is wonderful; I can pull a 8x10 trailer filled with tools and supplies to a job with ease. Then with the seats up I can load the kid's string quartet with all there gear to the gig site in comfort. This comes at a price. On long trips, it's a nice car on the open highway with the family. While not too bad on gas if you take it easy, you're sure to see that gas gauge move if tow or hard accelerations.

Before i bought my Yukon, I rented them from Avis and Hertz. Loved driving them better than Caddy Devilles that I used to rent. Bought my 04 XL in fall of 04 and have never been sorry that I did. My first SUV..mid size SW before (Olds and Buicks) Drives like a car. My wife enjoys driving it. We have been on highway trips with 8 on board including all of the luggage. Amazingly the brake pads lasted for 80,000 miles before they needed to be replaced. Replaced them with original factory pads and they also lasted 80,000 miles. I like my 04 better than the newer 2007 to 2010 ones because of the folding armrests on the front bucket seats. The newer ones don't have them anymore.

Nice but not trouble free.

We bought this to pull our travel trailer and haul the four kids around. Towing power is nice but the interior is not nearly as useful as the Honda Odyssey we traded in. In the last 4 months we have had to change the thermostat, have the gauge cluster replace, and have an air bag light coming on and off. Not trouble free by any standard. This is a really nice vehicle but the quality is not all that great. Just make sure to have money set aside for repairs!

This vehicle has been in for repairs over the years at least 5 times for transmissions problems - but 36 days after the dealer recommended a "transmission flush" - the entire transmission blows up! Co-incidence? I think NOT! I think it is pretty suspicious that after a recommended procedure of "flushing" is done to have the transmission blow up only after 36 days!!! DO NOT BUY A GMC PRODUCT!!!! Basically, the dealer and GMC complaint department says "too bad, so sad"

I own a valet parking company and have drivin everything under the sun. This is by far the best vehicle on the road! There is simply not a smoother ride in an suv and the GMC knows americans expect luxury. I drove this vehicle down the appalation mountain chain from Maine to Florida and was comfortable and confident the entire way. Short story: I was at a complete stop, Got hit from behind by a by a buick going about 40mhp and barly noticed. The buick was totaled and driver was hospitalized. The yukon had a couple scratches on the bumper.

Most Excellent!

I've never owned a GMC product until this truck. Very impressed with the build quality, performance and reliability. I average 16mpg around town and 19mpg on highway at 75mph! Towing my 4200 pound sailboat across country and back gave me a 14.2 mpg average! I've had one small re-occuring problem concerning the rear heat on my SLT truck having a valve stick. We don't use the heat very often in Phoenix, so no doubt that has a lot to do with it. The rear air works very well! I have all the options but the DVD system and sunroof. As I said before, I'm impressed, GM. Good job with my truck.

I bought this truck used for $22K on Ebay in Dec 06 with 42K miles on it. It has nav, DVD, and the sunroof and has run for almost another 40K miles with very few problems. It is powerful, fun to drive, and is great for a family of 5 but drinks gas like crazy. For 22K invested I can't complain.

My wife and I are so pleased how easy it is to handle this truck. Ride is great for a big SUV. We really love it. Making U turns is a breeze. From the outside at first it is a little frightening. When you drive one you would never think you are driving a big SUV. Features, room, ride, A+. MPG stink, But it's well worth it for the family.

Great vehicle for golf trips. I load up 5 guys with golf clubs and luggage for a 4 day trip to Myrtle Beach. The ride is great and I use the GPS system all the time. It's great to find golf courses. It's my 5th Suburban, but, my 1st Denali and I love it. There was not enough difference between the Denali and the Escalade to justify the price difference.

With a drop-down DVD player and a hand full of movies you can take the family on that 1500 mile trip without a fuss. It's big enough for all your luggage, tows trailers without worry, fits 6-8 adults without worry, offers sleeping room and seating postions, excellerates great, and handles like a Mercedes. After driving an S500 recently, I returned to the Yukon XL with a renewed point of view of how much vehicle this really is. The stable-track nearly eliminates body sway. The long wheelbase soaks up the bumps much better than a pounding/bucking ride Short-Wheel-Base SUV. Towed trailers 10,000 miles and I put a post-it note on the dash to remind me it was back there. Mercedes in GM clothing.

Nice roomy SUV . Bought it to carry the new twin grandchildren. Removed passenger side bucket seat to facilitate loading & third seat useage. Need to have sliding windows in cargo area for pet comfort.Interior cheap materials, no locking gas gap door or spring loaded wipers. Now there is a Envoy Denali. What next a Malibu Denali? Nav system somewhat difficult to program. Not a full size spare & manual reccomends you dont use chains. Kind of negates use in snow country.

Yukon XL is better then I ever guessed..

I purchased this car as a gift for my husband -it was his dream truck. He loves this car and practically worships it. We've driven it to Boston and it was a fantastic ride. With five children, the DVD and separate music system is a trip saver. It is hands down the best deal we've ever experienced both in terms of price, quality, reliability and comfort. Great job GMC!

This is my first Yukon. I've wanted one for a very long time, and finally got it. I love my Yukon. I have four wheel drive for the snow, and it handles it perfect. I feel very safe with my family in this car, and I have never had any problems with this truck. The gas mileage is horrible, but what can you expect from an SUV? I have installed XM satellite radio and I don't listen to the regular radio anymore. The sound is great too. The only thing I dislike is the 3rd row seating. There is no leg room. Your legs are up to your chest and the seats don't fold down into the floor. I have to pull them out (very heavy) whenever I want to use the extra cargo space and its a pain. A-

This is my first GMC vehicle. I am impressed with the performance and reliability. Very roomy. However, you should be warned that it is always thirsty for gas. I was sold on the GPS and was looking forward to using it. Unfortunately, it is cumbersome to use. I called the dealer for assistance and the technician admitted that it was a waste of money to purchase the GPS and that it was very poor. Hopefully, they improve this substantially.

My 2004 Yukon XL is just about perfect. The only trouble was with the exhaust popping noise (which is a common problem with the 2004 models). The dealer fixed it by replacing the entire exhuast system. I am getting 13.5 mpg city and 19 highway which isnt too bad for its size and hauling capacity. Although it recently is costing me over $60.00 to fill up this bad boy, the ride is great and will plow through even the toughest of snow drifts up here in the midwest. The only regret is not getting the autoride suspension.

I've had my Denali for a couple of months and have upgraded it with 22" rims. It looks great, but it's not perfect for a $53,000 vehicle. It needs heated mirrors, better second row seats (it would be nice if you can move them back and forth), and the third seat needs to hide in the floor.

Great car if a 5'8" person with no previous back problems can stand the pain of sitting in the drivers seat form more than 20 minutes. Way to go GM, you got my 50K this time, but never again. We have a brand new Denali in the garage, and took the Eddie Bauer Expedition with 100k miles on it to the family christmas gathering cause I can't stand the pain of being in that seat. And I've never been a Ford or a GMC guy in the past either, I am now.

I'm used to GM's full-sized trucks, owning a pair of pickups in the past (a 97 and 01 model). Knowing that the cabin is the same foreward of the driver seat of the 01, I wasn't expecting much of a change, but it really is much more comfy - probably due more to the suspension than anything. The seats even feel better than my 01 Silverado. The 6.0 is a MUCH better engine than the 5.3 or the 350, as it feels much stronger while being even more smooth.

I have read many reviews about these vehicles. Its great as far as I can see. The brakes are much improved from my former 1999. The interior is upgraded, the fuel economy is much better, improved 2-3 mpg in city and local. people complain about the gas mileage, buy a minivan. They complain about acceleration, buy a Porsche Cayenne. Nothing beats the overall experience of owning and driving a GMC Yukon XL. This is the 4th one have bought. Previously I had a 1995, 1999 and a 2001. They are great vehicles that do not need an excuse.

This is my third suburban - #1 94 Chev Sub, #2 99 GMC Sub, #3 04 Yukon XL. Very reliable - better than Excursions and much quieter. XM is awesome - so is OnStar (we like the unlock card by calling a 1-800 number feature). GMCs are just a little nicer than Chevys in my opinion. The Denali is very nice, but not for 7K more than the Yukon. I was able to resale my GMC much higher than the trade-in value they wanted to give me. These SUVs keep their value.

This is my first Denali, coming off a 2001 Excursion. I do miss the interior room, but this is a much more advanced vehicle. It is comfortable, quiet, well appointed, and less expensive than the Escalade. Fuel economy is only 15, but not surprising with all that power. Also, the climte control with dual sided controls works quite well.

Want a big, luxury SUV? Deck out an XL with SLT trim and save some big $$. Lexus and Caddillac cannot show me 20+K worth of advantages over this ride. It's got big power, lots of room, all creature comforts and a feel- good vibe. Best vehicle I've ever purchased.

My main consideration for purchasing this vehicle was for towing purposes. A recent trip from NJ to Lake George, NY and back to NJ proved that this GMC SUV can handle tough situations, and do it comfortably! Soon after being on the road you almost forget that you're towing a 6,000 Lb boat on a 2,000 Lb trailer. Sharp and hilly curves at the lake was never a problem. My wife loves this Yukon XL, and is now looking forward to driving the SUV this winter. (Fat chance!)...Well, maybe sometimes.

The best suv on the market. Not to mention the biggest.The Yukon XL is the way to go if you have kids and want to travel. My two kids ride in the middle row bench seat (watching their favorite DVD of course)and the family dog gets the comfy third row seat all to himself while our collection of luggage and other junk rests comfortably in the back for the 6 hour trip to Grandma's about every three weeks. Don't let the fuel milage scare you. We get 19 hwy 13.5 city. Not bad considering the truck weighs 2 1/2 tons. Definately go for the Autoride suspension even if you are not going to tow a lot it helps with body roll in corners with a vehicle of this size.

Great truck

I recently traded up to Yukon XL Denali. I have owned a Tahoe and Yukon Denali and I am quite pleased with these large vehicles. If you are into large SUVs like me this vehicle has to be on your list. I love the peppy engine, creature comforts, space and styling of this vehicle. I have compared it to Navigator, Escalade, Tahoe, Expedition. I am happy with the spot it occupuys among these players.

My GMC Yukon Denali is an exhilerating driving experience. I traded in my Lexus and have never looked back. Every time I touch the gas pedal and feel that exhileration of driving a sports car as the 6 liter engine sits me back in my seat, I completely forget that I am in an SUV. The sleek styling ques of the front clip clearly have the "move over" feel when you see it in your rear view mirror. I love my Denali!

Only had this truck one week. Got the Yukon XL SLT model seats eight. We tried out 5 other gmc/chevys and learned quite a lot. 1) You can't get the Bose stereo in 9 passenger. You need the Bose. The stock stereo is tinny and can't be adjusted to sound good at all. The rear audio/hvac controls work great for the kids. Once seated in the back row, a 6 footer can sit comfortably. The XM satelite radio gets 120 channels plus including disney,sports, country, and a few rock stations. The leather is nice & all the seats are comfortable. Power with the 5.3 is good, mileage has been about 15 so far. Best news? $10k off the sticker!

Nice ride,quiet,comfortable,duel air works great,tows whatever you want to tow and you can hardly tell you are towing and better fuel mileage than my '97 Tahoe at 65-75 mph but it drops like a rock if you go above that.Power is ok but next time I'll opt for the 6.0 ltr motor and I would strongly urge GM to offer the Duramax diesel which I would buy.

This GMC Denali is the 5th large GMC SUV that I've owned in 18 years and is by far the very best. This is an effortless vehicle to drive despite the size. The all wheel drive was flawless over the winter. I find the gas miles to be acceptable given the weight and poor aerodynamics. In 12,000 miles of combined city/highway the average is 14.7 mpg with 87 octane fuel. So far, no complaints.

purchased 2004 yukon xl 2wheel drive, makes loud popping or clanging noise continues for at least five to ten minutes after car is turned off, it rides like a fifteen year old car that needs a tune up, vibrates in steering wheel and dash while sitting stopped, dealer says these 2004 just make more noise than older models, dealer wants to put weights on exhaust to stop vibration, basically when you spend 43,000 on a new suv and only have 1500 miles, we should not have to be going to dealer every other day and waiting on parts to "rig" the exhaust. ADVICE, DON'T BUY GMC YUKON XL 2004 MODEL

My GMC has had three front differentials and MANY, MANY other problems. I know the whole service department by first name basis. They have even asked when I was going to start getting a pay check... GMC does not stand behind their product when it comes right down to it. They might fix it if you know what you are talking about, otherwise thay might pull a quick one. GMC has been making these SUVs for a long time so you might think they would have all the quirks worked out ~ at least that's why I bought GMC. BUT it's NOT the case.

We had problems right after we drove the car off the lot. The windshield was leaking, causing a loud noise while on the freeway, which the dealer fixed. We also have the clanging noise in the exhaust that can be heard a block away. GM is aware of the problem but not willing to fix it. After much wrestling and complaining and almost going to a lawyer, the dealership agreed to replace the muffler system at a local repair shop in order to fix the problem. We bought the extended warranty, which originally they said would NOT cover fixing the loud clanging in the exhaust.

We recently bought the Denali. It cost $53,000, so we expected a top of the line vehicle. What we got instead was a lemon. Even with the extended warranty, we are not able to fix a problem with loud clanging in the exhaust which is known to GMC corporation. We are not aware if this is even a safety issue. The corporation does not offer any information. We did get the seal of the windshield fixed. It was very loud because of the windshield air leak, which may also be a hazard.

I have owned this car for just over 6 months now. I use it for my daily commute and to get around on weekends. It is a pleasure to drive and is surprisingly quick and response for something of this size. It has tons of space for all those things you never knew you'd need to carry until you have kids. The sound from the DVD player is great. My only regret is that I got the 2003 rather than waiting for 2004. This meant deciding between a sunroof and the DVD player.

I really like my Yukon XL. But it doesn't show up in the ratings. Its better than the Sequoia/Expedition types because of the cargo space behind the third seat and the ability to tow. I had a '97 Suburban and this new unit is much improved in ride and engine. But its the size coupled with the ease of operation that makes it the king of the road. It remains to be seen if reliability is any better - the Suburban was a little weak, but not so weak I didn't get another GM.

Lots of space for the kids and cargo

This SUV just has all what a big family can wish for. There are plenty of cargo space even with 3 row seat in use. It handles very safely, but it takes a little getting use to parking due to the size of this SUV. Gas milage could be better but what can one expect of a SUV this size with a 6L V8. It's very quite even at high speed.

WITHIN THE FIRST 1000 MILES I ENCOUNTERED PROBLEM WITH THE GEARS WHICH WAS REPLACED BY THE DEALER AT NO COST BUT SHOOK MY CONFIDENCE IN THE CAR. I HAD TO GO BACK 3 TIMES BEFORE THEY CORRECTED THE PROBLEM. NOW I AM HEARING ANOTHER CLICKING NOISE FROM THE FRONT. CONFIDENCE???????? IT IS VERY SMOOTH CAR TO RUN AND EASY TO HANDLE. I WISH THEY WOULD PAY MORE ATTENTION IN ENSURING THAT ALL SYSTEMS WORK PROPERLY AT THE FIRST TIME AND CONSUMERS DON'T FEEL, MAY BE, THEY GOT A LEMON?? I STILL LOVE THIS CAR.
