2003 GMC Yukon XL 1500Carnut - Delray Beach, Fl11/11/2008
This is our 4Th Suburban, I mean Yukon?! Well it is the same car as the suburban with a better customer service dealership. It is the greatest vehicle ever made in America. It rides like a flying rug. It is quiet, it feels and rides safe on hand at all times. It doesn't surprise you easily. It is got a steady behavior with all the gadgets. It a great cruiser that doesn't get you tired after a day behind the wheel. It behaves very well on winding roads, it is very forgiving when you screw up. We have the 4X4 that is never used. You can pull the boat off the water without the 4x4 if you have good tires. It is built to last, it is comfortable, it is safe.
On the down side, sorry that I have to mention is the brakes. I am not crazy for the brakes. Gas mileage is low but is trade off for the positives on this truck.
We had these trucks for a long time and still love them. I drive around and see some very old suburban still driving around and that is tradition. I hope Chevrolet continues to build and maintain the quality on the top and bottom for a long time. It is a buy!

2009 GMC Yukon XL 1500Mike - Forest Hill, MD04/07/2015
This is the do-all modern family truckster. This truck allows my whole family to travel in comfort and still have plenty of cargo space to carry luggage on a trip. Amenities are great from it's comfort items, to dual rows of TV's for the kids, and good ride quality. On the highway, it has easily gotten 20+ MPG which is actually respectable for an SUV this size. Also, if not on a trip or going around town, it definitely get the Utility in SUV used. 3rd row removed and 2nd folded, this practically turns into a pickup truck that just has a cap on it. Been able to haul many items in from the home improvement store and other stuff out to the dump that couldn't been done with a car or midsized truck.
I was reluctant to buy a car with such questionable gas mileage however the performance and appearance far out ways my fuel concerns. The car performs with the gas mileage exactly as stated on the sticker...no surprises. I would highly recommend the car to whomever needs exceptional power and great looks.
