Summary:

Can't beat the looks, size and relative fuel economy (blows the Excursion away)

Faults:

Power seat motor started to make a lot of noise at 65k. GMC replaced it at no charge to me under the extended warranty.

General Comments:

Overall, this vehicle has been wonderful! It is spacious, drives and turns like a car, has excellent gas mileage for such a hefty truck, and is beautiful!

I've heard a lot of negative things about GMC, but I've had noting, but GREAT experiences - even when the truck was in th dealer for minor repairs (all of which have been covered by the extended warranty.) The dealer even gave me a free loaner van while my Yukon was being worked on!

I am just now replacing the brake pads after 45,000 miles and we do a lot of mountain driving!

The tight turn radius is miraculous! I can U-Turn on a two lane road without having to back up!

Great truck - get the extended warranty though. It's worth every penny!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
