    With these new electronic laden vehicles and headlights that cost $1000 and tail lights that cost $750 and MRC shocks that cost $750 I would recommend a GM extended warranty. We can point you to the right thread if you decide to purchase one at a discounted price or have your dealer match or beat the price.

    I bought my '15 SLT new in May 2014 and it now has 115k miles on it. I'd say it's the best vehicle I've owned. I've had a few issues but certainly nothing I would consider major. The hood buffets a little which I noticed right away after I bought it, but after a short time I stopped even noticing it. The seat heater went out in the driver seat and they're stupidly expensive to replace so I've just gone without. The rear defroster wire has popped off a couple times because it's just a terrible design but it's a very simple repair. Right now my passenger window is having some issue where when it rolls up on auto it just automatically starts back down again as soon as it gets to the top but I would guess that's a relatively simple fix. There's been all the routine maintenance that comes with averaging ~24k miles a year on a big vehicle and that stuff gets more expensive as the mileage goes up, but if you can't afford the gas and maintenance you should be buying something different anyway. The big question for me at this point is how many more miles I can get before the repairs start getting more frequent and expensive. I'll most likely start looking to replace mine sometime next year. Maybe once the next generation is released I'll snag a current generation Denali for a good price.

    We bought our 2015 last year with 92k miles and it has been a great purchase. At 98k the transmission did go out but was covered under the warranty. And I just replaced the magride shocks with a electronic delete kit and ranchos quicklift strut's. My wife loves it.

    I have a 2015 SLT and have only had two issues. One was the Navi/dash computer module (HMI) going bad after the warranty but my dealer replaced it for $136 labor. The second was A dealer mistake during routine maintenance and they made it right. I have had no issues with the sound problems that can be common in that year.

    2015i Denali here that I purchased new. Other than some minor warranty things (brake booster squeaking, minor noise from a front strut bumper, gps antenna and converter shudder), my truck has been great. It's very comfortable on road trips, has plenty of power and is serving us well. I have had zero issues with booming/buffeting. I did purchase a GM extended warranty for an additional 4 years and 48K miles. I typically keep my vehicles for ~6 years.

    One interesting data point to see would be current owners satisfaction (for any vehicle) divided into two categories:

    Those who bought new
    Those who bought used

    People posting on an automotive forum are typically at least minor car enthusiasts who take care of their shit more than most. So if they bought new, the odds favor their cars being taken better care of then, say, the soccer mom who guns it at every green light, slams the breaks at every stop light, may or may not take it in for required maintenance, or recognize potential issues (sounds or feels) until too much damage is already done...then passes the vehicle on to the next lucky owner.
