We have only had the car a few weeks, but we absolutely love it. The comfort is amazing in the seats in all rows, there's plenty of wiggle room for the four kids and friends, even in the third row. What would be nice is fold flat seats, but I guess beggars really cannot be choosers. The performance is just... amazing, really. We upgraded from a 2001 Expedition with a Triton V8, and this car blew us away with horsepower, it's always willing to get the job done. The Bose stereo is simply INSANE with sound, and I have yet to drive an SUV in my budget that could let you modify nearly every considerable element when it comes to things like Bass, Treble, Mid, etc. The iPod controls were a little confusing, but we got used to it quickly (thanks to my audiophile teenager!) This truck finally feels like a car, and it is just simply awesome. It does have a sort of average exterior, but still a head-turner. What is very convenient for a truck of this size is the backup camera, which was standard on our model (SLT) and really worth the splurge if not already there on your model; it's definitely worth it when backing up to park and towing. The ride noise is virtually gone too, we had a whole-car conversation... on a California freeway! What I like most is, unlike some other models, GM still realizes people still need trucks, and while towing has gone down considerably (and in comparison to the 2011 Expedition there is really no comparison at about 5k for the Yukon and a hefty 9k for the Expedition) but we usually just tow our boat and trailer, so not much was really needed anyway.
The third row is just about the only thing that bugs me worth noting. I liked the new Expedition because it had a split up third row (60/40) that fold flat where this truck (with less cargo room with seats up) doesn't have fold flat seats, and can only sit one person when one half is down (50/50 bench) and the folding process is tedious and over-complicated.
Overall, this TRUCK is an amazing vehicle, from the doors that close with an assuring "thud" to the grunting V8 that has the gas mileage of a light truck a 1/3 of it's size (Active Fuel Management disables cylinders when not in extreme use like on the freeway or when coasting extensively). I've always bought American, and definitely will again, especially after this!
