Long-Term Test 3: 2007 GMC Yukon
11 Months and 17,079 Miles
The Yukon's 15,000-mile service cost a stiff $435.53, but it did include an oil change, full inspection, tire rotation, and cleaning of the throttle body, induction, and fuel injectors. More important, the service visit remedied another faulty key fob-at 14,000 miles, it became temperamental and useless-under warranty. While our flex-fuel Yukon's 13.2-mpg fuel economy shows it's been flexing too much, editors are still enamored with it, praising its "solid, polished feel," the "push-button-flip second-row seats," and the "cushy ride that isn't too isolating." Editor MacKenzie sums up the Yukon as "your best buddy, favorite hunting dog, and Trigger, all rolled into one." That said, some editors would welcome a third row that folded flat and a top speed greater than 98 mph.
