Pros: The space & the feel of this ride
Cons: vibration at 70 mph.
Advice: buy in Nov for that year...we got a GREAT DEALSmooth!!! Over all it was, hands down, the most comfortable ride with the most room. We tried the ford expedition & gmc yukon denali, while the denali was a sweet ride the leg room in the back fell short. The ford had a rough ride, more like a truck. If I am going to spend the money I want a smooth ride. Biggest issue is there is a slight vibration at 70 mph.
Pros: Great sense of room
Cons: Braking seemed less responssive vs the Yukon
Advice: Beat the dealers up they want to move the inventory I got mine $4,000 under the best deal from GM on a new DenaliI first rented this brand on a business trip to No. Carolina I owned a 99 Yukon & was loyal to GMC. Simply this UTE blew me away...along with my Yukon Handling great Accelerator response WOW overall nice feel sporty ride no bounce via the suspension...got home to NH got one really happy
Pros: Auto leveling system
Cons: Drivers seat comfort
Advice: Seating comfort doesn't compare to the Tahoe/SuburbanSpace, power, sound system, DVD (for the kids) a big plus, and available options is what made us go with this. Ride and seating is a little stiffer than the Tahoe. If you're looking at the SE, Nissan foglamp kits can be purchased on Ebay for less than dealer cost.
Pros: Engine and tow capacity
Cons: Interior could be a little more upscale- plastic abounds
Advice: Test drive the vehicle you purchase and remember this is a truck.I bought mine used with 6900 miles in April. I now have 17,000 miles in October. Very solid performer and cheaper to run and insure than my '98 Dodge Durango. I have not had any fluttering issue or acceleration issue- runs great and V8 is awesome. I tow two heavy boats and with the Armada and it's as if they are not even there. Ride level feature on the LE is great, room is fantastic and styling superb. I have people stop and ask what it is all the time.
Pros: Front row seats fold all the way down to create a recliner/bed like set for the 2nd row seats
Cons: The instrument controls especially the AC controls feel flimsy.
Advice: If you get the bose system make sure you turn off the SSV setting, having the radio volume go up and down while you drive is annoying.I got spoiled test driving this car first before the Sequoia, Expedition, and Tahoe. It handles great for a full sized SUV. I was also suprised at how fast it could accelerate. After test driving this car the Toyota Sequoia felt sluggish and non responsive. Performance wise it was definately the best of the pack.
Pros: Leg room behind the driver's seat with the driver's seat all the way back.
Cons: Tires translate road bumps to the cabin area more than I like.
Advice: Buy now and negotiate the price because I believe the price will increase next year.Appears 'Huge' from the outside but handles like a smaller SUV when you're behind the wheel. Stopping ability is excellent with the towing package leveler and brake assist. Extremely comfortable and quiet on the road and cruise control is true even up long grades. Interior room allows freedom for many bundles and people. Climate control kept passengers very comfortable.
Pros: navagitation system
Advice: it is the best suv for your moneyit was the best suv i have ever driven
