A family member has given me the option to buy from them an '02 Yukon with 137K miles for $6K. It has never had a problem except for the AC, which is fixed now.
Would you buy it?
How long can I expect this thing to last?

Just my personal opinion, NO.
Reason #1, I would never buy from a family member or friends.
Reason #2, the mileage is quite high, regardless of its model year, I would expect some kind of major maintenance is just around the corner.
Just my 2 cents...

#85 of 91 Denail vs. SLT2 vs. MDX vs 'Sclade vs Q7
Nov 09, 2007 (8:10 pm)
Hello guys! I am considering switching from my FX-35 to a larger vehicle as my wife is due to give birth to our second child in Jan. We are considering the MDX, Escalade, Yukon SLT2, Denali, QX56 and Audi Q7. My favorite is prob Escalade followed by Denali. I am concerned however about reliability of vehicles and gas mileage. If diff between Denail/'clade and MDX is liek avg 15 mpg v 18mpg then i dont care. But if its liek 10-12mpg vs 18 then its harder for me to justify the extra expense of truck and gas. Any thoughts? Also any idea of diff in performance and fuel economy between SLT2 and Denali? Thanks for any advice!!!
#86 of 91 yukon compass & temperature on interior mirror

Does anyone know how to recalibrate the compass and mirror on the interior review mirror?
We took a trip and the temp was extremely cold... the temp flashed and has displayed " 0C " since we've returned.
I've found something about driving in circles. Does this work and if so is there any trick to doing it?

LOL, yes, driving in a circle at less than 5mph until the display reads a direction is a part of the required calibration. Please steps below:
1. Identify which of the 15 zone numbers covers your current location (See your Owner's Manual).
2. Press and hold the on/off button on your mirror until a Z or a zone number displays.
3. keep pressing the on/off button until your zone number displays, then let go the on/off button and wait for ~5 seconds for the zone to be locked in.
To calibrate, the "CAL" must be displayed on your mirror's compass display. To enter the CAL mode, press and hold the on/off button for about 12 seconds or until the "CAL" is displayed. This is when you start driving in a circle at less than 5mph or until the display reads a direction (i.e. N, NE, S, SE...), this may require you driving 2 or 3 rounds... keep it slow. Good Luck!

Any suggestions on the temperature portion of the mirror display? This will now only display 0C. Thanks once again!

I was hoping once its calibrated, the temperature reading will work normally... at least that's how mine worked. I don't know what else may be causing the 0C reading, Sorry! Have you tried to unplug the power plug behind the mirror, perhaps that can reset it or something; just a thought...

I have tried unplugging the mirror. The compass is working perfectly but the temp still displays 0C. I'll probably have to take it in to the dealer to find out if it's wiring in the mirror or if its some type of temp sensor installed somewhere else on the the truck. Thanks for your help.

Turn the engine off. Push the emergency brake pedal on. Turn the engine back on. The headlights will not come on again until you release the emergency brake.
