I wouldn't worry about it being from Mexico at all...that'a a good thing, at least in my view. We used to have an '02 Avalanche out of the same plant in Mexico and it was drum-tight, problem-free, and had perfect paint. That's pretty much the same for most every truck that comes out of Mexico.
When we were buying the new Suburban, I encouraged getting one from Mexico if possible, and that's what we were going to get, but it didn't work out and we ended up with a very early built Janesville truck (08/03...!). Build quality pretty much matches our Av, but the front bumper is just a little crooked and it's already had one or two issues with rattles/creaks. Overall still awesome, but I've only ever heard of more issues with the U.S. built ones.

Where did you buy your Yukon? I'm in Florida and not getting the pricing you did. I don't mind driving.

Sorry for the late response. I was out of town for the week. Regarding the coupons, I had to ask. My impression was if they tell you they are out of them and you hold your position, they will find them from somewhere. That's an extra grand. The dealer wasn't about to volunteer anything. They want to hold those coupons for the guy who is going to force their hand. I probably left money on the table, but I can't imagine you not getting your truck for under that 35K. Make sure you have at least a second dealer lined up. You're in the driver seat. Go for it and let me know how it turns out.
#76 of 133 2005 Sub LT or Denali XL Pricing
Oct 03, 2004 (4:52 pm)
I have been looking for a 2005 Sub LT with 2nd row bench, Sun/Sound/ Ent Package, Safe & Secure, Nav System, Locking Rear (if possible with Safe/Secure Package)and Wheel Flares in the new Bermuda Blue color. I got prices from 2 dealers of $48,500. I walked into a GMC Dealer saw a Denali XL in the same color and options I want and within 2 minutes gave me a price of $47,500. What would be the best I could get either one for?
Pricing given include rebates of $2,500 (Oct Truck Fest) I live in Northern NJ. Any advice will be a great help. Thanks

I can only speak in generalities but I also am in North NJ and did not get close to the deals some of these other folks are sharing. But I was looking for an 04 Sub LS which was harder to find. Since you are looking for an 05 Denali may be easier. I did buy an 04 and got the 0% for 6 yrs.Best advise is to go to a few dealers, knock 20% off the invoice price and go from there.
#78 of 133 '04 Yukon XL/Suburban pricing
Oct 12, 2004 (1:02 pm)
With 2 small kids and 2 big car seats finally looking to pull the trigger on the 'big' family truck and trade in what has been a very reliable Lexus RX 300 as we are growing out of it. I am looking to get a good deal on a 04 Suburban LT or YukonXL in southwestern CT - just outside NYC.
There seems to be very limited inventory as this point and so far I've been quoted SubLT w/just about everything except factory DVD..47K sticker, dealer will discount 12K for price of 35K, that is without 0% interest. If I want 0% interest I lose the $4500 rebate for a price of 39.5K. The other option I've been quoted from a GMC dealer is for a fully loaded YukonXL...$52k sticker, with all rebates can get down to 39K without 0% financing, if I want 0% on the Yukon the price is $43.5k.
Both seem a bit high compared to other posts I've read on this board. Any insight as to whether I should press these dealers to go lower?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!!
#79 of 133 Good Deal?
Oct 14, 2004 (10:04 am)
I have a 1999 Denali with 170k miles on it. I'm looking to get a new Denali XL. There's a 2003 Denali XL with 12k miles,with the Nav. System for 38k. What should I be paying for this truck? Also, someone told me that the Nav system in the Denali doesn't work when driving, which sounded false to me. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I think that person meant to say that you can't input destinations into the nav (other than any preset destinations like "Home") or perform other nav adjustments which require you to fiddle with the nav controls/buttons while the vehicle is in motion--safety first, you know! Then again, what I said applies to '04; I dunno if it applies to '03 but I would think it would since '03 and '04 share the same nav unit, IIRC.
Personally, I think $38K is too much for an '03 with that many miles on it...but what do I know.

Took the plunge this past Friday and picked up my fully loaded'05 Denali XL for $47,065 (got it in the new Blue Green Crystal color). MSRP was $55,650. Added 7/70 warranty for additional $1,800.
