    2001 GMC Yukon XL 1500 - SLT 4x4

    Wonderful, reliable family truck. Capable of almost anything. Gets about 16 mpg, and expensive to run. Otherwise my preferred car for almost any occasion. I live in the desert, and it is always there. Fairly cheap to repair, I have had to replace the front leather driver's seat, and am on my second set of tires. But when I need to haul furniture, books, antiques, or almost anything to kids' homes or elsewhere, it's our go to vehicle. I love it.

    2009 GMC Yukon XL 1500 - SLT2 w/4SB 4x4

    Pros: Durability and capacity

    Cons: Seat folding

    Advice: Buy it

    Great car! I have 3 active boys and it fits all our hockey, ski, and their friends. We beat it up and it withstands all of our punishment. It already has 82,000 miles on it and we've replaced just the tires. I love it.

    2002 GMC Yukon XL 1500 - SLE 4x2

    Pros: large cargo area

    Cons: no keypad door lock option . Also, one cannot open all doors when opening driver's door with key; you have to push the unlock button on the door armrest.

    Advice: gas mileage is poor

    The ride was fairly car-like with not much bounce or sway as would be suspected. Braking appeared a little sluggish. Acceleration was fair. Rode very well on expressway. Leather seats comfortable with excellent low back support(adjustable) and decent side support.
