    I love our 2010 ssv. Added a few creature comforts to it but nothing hard or expensive. When my wife decided she wanted a Tahoe as well I seriously considered just getting another but ended up giving her mine to drive and I bought something more fun to drive. Unfortunately it’s slightly ruined the performance of the Tahoe for me lol

    I would buy another one, I have retired my current one from daily duty but it will be used to tow mostly.

    Personally I only bought my 10 Yukon because the Indians ( found on the reserve with 75 others) stole my 06. The 06 was far better vehicle. How real steel rear bumper, with step vs, cheap plastic on the 10 with no step. Second row seats folded flat to form a one level cargo area on the 06, with 3rd row removed ( anybody interested in a grey leather 3rd row) vs 10 inches higher than the cargo are on the 10. The engine was also better on the 06, never burned oil even at 280,000 km. The 10 with AFM requires a top up an the oil always looks dirty. Lastly rust-out on the 10 between the rear door and the rear wheel wells has started on both sides. Just built cheaper.

    The only thing I like better on a GMT800 over a GMT900 is the seating is a little more comfy on long road trips. Otherwise, I like the GMT900 better in almost every other category.

    Out of curiosity have any of the owners of the trucks upgraded of replaced the trans coolers? Depending on the design of the cooler they can become embedded with road particulate or get mucked up internally. Either scenario leads to the overheat condition when the trans looks to the cooler to remove the additional heat loading up.
