    Hope you guys can help me out. I'm in the market for a used yukon, burb, or tahoe. Should I be concern with high mileage? What sort of maintenance should I be looking for? timing belt, component(s) change, etc.

    How old are you looking at?

    My biggest concern would be did the previous owner take care of it.

    I was looking at 01 thru 06. So as long as the previous owner has taken care of it I shouldn't have to worry too much than. Any major things I should look out for?

    That's my problem, how do you know the previous owner took care of the vehicle?

    Are you looking at a 4WD model?

    As far as problem areas, if a vehicle has been well maintained it will be OK. If I were you I would buy as new as possible. I don't know what used Yukons are going for, but a lot of dealers are clearing our left over 2013 Tahoe and Yukons. The dealer by me is advertising $10,000 off MSRP on a left over 2013 Tahoe.

    Both yukon xl's that I have had have had front diff issues. Look for broken or missing exhaust manifold bolts. The stepper motors on the instrument clusters are known to go bad. I know that the 03 was well maintained as I got the records and know the owner of the shop that did it. The 05 I bought from a used car dealer, so who knows.

    Yeah. 2wd or 4wd? What engine? How many miles? Are you looking for something bare bones or with some add ons?
