I just bought my 93 Yukon 4x4 last year it has 185000+ miles on it and it is still a strong good looking truck. I hope it will last as long as my favorite truck did my 80 Chevy Silverado C10 it had 397000+ miles on it before it got stolen last year.

I have 92,000 miles on my Yukon and it still is going strong. When I hit 100,000 miles I will be draining all fluids, replacing with a quality synthetic (transfer case will be GM fluid for the autotrac) as well as new wires, and iridium plugs. I will have the body gone over and have replaced the leather seat covers in the front. (www.theseatstore.com is a great website!!!) New Radio buttons and I replaced the steeing wheel with a new OEM (ebay is great). I tow a 26 foot travel trailer in the summers with this also......so I don't baby it.
I believe I could drive this through the 7th level of Dant'es Inferno and it would come out clean. If you have the chance to buy one do it, but make sure that it is in good repair, and garaged if possible.

In reply to your question on how long a 2004 GMC Yukon XL will last? My son's 2004 Yukon XL 4x4 has just past 440,000 and is doing very well in Alberta, Canada.

Kilometers or miles?
Either way is terrific.

I would NOT recommend any suburban or Yukon XL from 07 -10.
I currently have a 2007 Yukon XL 5.3. It has had numerous problems and currently needs a new engine (170, 000 miles). The new engine issue is a result of a defect that GM is aware and will sometimes replace if your truck is still under warranty. Basicially a part that controls the oil is bad and in the end it starts fouling the plugs and the emission system. Look under the "excessive oil consumption" thread.
In addition if you look at another thread on edmunds "reduced engine power" you will see that all the model years that you are looking at have a problem with the "throttle body sensor" again, GM is aware of the issue, but no recall.
These models look good, but have lots of problems! T
