Money well spent
Universal joints on Drive Shaft came lose, and had to be re tightened.
I had to replace the transmission due to a crack in the units housing (would no longer hold transmission fluid) but was completely at fault for the damage (gotta watch where and how you drive..)
Had to replace the front brake pads at 49000 miles.
Battery had to be replaced at 76,000 miles.
To date this is definitely the Best Vehicle that I have ever owned (and I've had several.
I purchased my Explorer new, and had only gotten to 36,000 before the headaches started, I spied the Yukon with just 28,000 miles, and almost 3 years later I could not be more pleased.
The Engine (or any of its components) has never given me any trouble, and gives plenty of power during takeoff.
The ride is very smooth and quiet and a heck of a lot more stable than my previous vehicle (less bounce).
My only complaint would be the cheap tupperware like products used on my dash panel (which is starting to rattle).
Overall, it's been a great vehicle. GM really did their thing as far as putting a reliable vehicle out there that would stand the test of time.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
