You are in the GMC Yukon
What is this discussion about?
GMC Yukon XL, SUV
Mar 01, 2001 (3:42 pm)
Looking to buy new YXL for wife but she does not like any of the GM colors for Yukon or Suburban. She likes the spruce green color of the Ford Ex's but I want GMC product. Currently have a 1994 Suburban with 178,000 miles so we tend to live with them for a while. Does anyone know when the 2002 (or information about it) will be out? Are there any meaningful improvements over the 2001 and what will the color options be? Thanks.

I have a 99 2wd 1500 suburban and want to add air lift helper springs to the front. but to do it i need a shock relocation kit, anyone know where i can find one? thanks

Rancho makes one but I do not think you need it for your application. You are just replacing the stock shocks with air adjustment ones, right?

i am adding airbags to it, not the air shocks, so i have to keep the shocks somewhere. how much is that rancho kit? i could not find it on their site. thanks

I don't have the catalog here at work but try Performance Products in Van Nuys, CA for a price quote... www.performanceproducts.com

Hi Heatwave #664 Do you have the moon roof? If not have you operated in below 50 degree weather? It appears that moon roof equiped YukonXL and Denalli XL with moon roof have a different htr/ac system and don`t have cold air problem.
#693 of 4104 Took Delivery on 2001 Yukon XL after 7 weeks

We ordered our '01 Yukon XL on Jan 2 of 2001. Ordered Garnet Red with 1SC and other options. I worked with dealer in North Carolina who sells all their ordered vehicles for $200 below invoice. They do have a $212 "processing fee", but at that price, I really didn't argue about it much. The invoice includes a 1% ad fee which seems to be standard for the area. All was done over the phone; I knew the exact options and pricing, and put the deposit down.
I called GMC the next week and they said to call back in 2 weeks, that the order should be in the system by then. Two weeks later, they gave an estimated TPW of 2/5. So far, so good. I called the week of 2/5 to see if they were still on schedule, and the person indicated that the vehicle wasn't entered into the system yet?! After insisting that it was and that she check again, she "found it" and indicated there was no TPW for it and had no idea when it would get built. I called the salesman and he didn't really put a lot of trust into what the GMC folks had to say, but assured me things were going fine. I called GMC the next Wednesday, and viola, they said the truck had been built and shipped. I drove down and picked it up on 2/23 (even though they offered door-to-door delivery for only $100).
I was very happy with the process and wouldn't think twice about doing it again. The dealership is Biggs GMC/Pontiac in Elizabeth City, NC and the salesman (who was excellent) was Mike Douglas. If you contact him, please mention my name as a referral; maybe I'll get a hat or something.
Anyway, we love the truck, and this board has really helped in doing the research necessary to make an informed purchase.

Some of you are talking about loyalty certificates for $1000. Have any of you been able to actually get the $1000. off of the vehicle or are the coupons something thats happening in the near future? Someone mentioned showing a current registration to the dealer did that work without or in place of the coupon? Does anyone know how long the coupons are good for (specifically a date) I have a new suburban coming in the end of the month so any info will be appreciated. The dealer told me to plan on a 16 to 20 week wait and its going to be here in 8 weeks from the day we ordered it. Thanks in advance for all responses. Suburbansrule
