Owned my 2004 Yukon Denali for 14 years.
March 12, 2019
I traded this vehicle in at about 115,000 miles, which is quite low compared to others I have seen. I always thought the Yukon/Tahoe body style looked better than the larger XL/Suburban. In terms of practicality, I should have opted for the XL. The gas mileage was almost identical, but the cargo capacity of the XL would have fit me better. Over the years, I replaced tires, shocks, and batteries like everyone else. The rear air suspension replacement was a little tricky. Had to replace both air shocks, plus the compressor. I also had to replace the gage cluster, seat motor (twice), and the rear view mirror due to electronics. Many of these vehicles are being parted out, so replacement parts are quite reasonable, compared to dealer prices. The last thing that went wrong was the evap/charcoal system, which was my fault for over-filling the tank. This was even more frustrating because the computer was not sophisticated enough to tell me what particular component was bad. I had to replace everything, then found out that one of the (new) after-market replacement parts was bad. If you buy one and purchase an additional warranty, make sure it includes the electronics. And do not overfill the gas tank.
