2003 GMC Yukon 6.0 gas from North America
Thirsty but reliable
- Replaced the gauge cluster at 140,000 -- this is a known GM issue, but it was outside the free replacement period. There are plenty of businesses that replace the cluster gauges (just pull it out and mail it to them) at reasonable prices and with quick turnaround. I think our repair cost $80 and we had it back within the week.
- Replaced the A/C at 110,000.
Disclaimer: I am not a fan of GM vehicles and never have been. However, the Yukon has been a great vehicle. Most of the issues that we have had with it have been of the normal wear and tear variety.
Plenty of power, the AWD is great in the snow and ice, tires last a long time, and it's comfortable.
Basic maintenance items (fluids, brakes, filters, lights) are very easy to get to.
Rear seats are reasonably easy to fold down and/or remove.
We've averaged around 15-16 MPG in mixed driving. Although I would probably not buy another Yukon (for our purposes, a minivan would suit us better), I would highly recommend it to someone who is looking for a larger SUV.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
