Looking at buying an '05 Yukon XL

Well, well..... I have spent a few years on the '88 - '98 board, owning a 1988 GMC Sierra SLE. Reg cab).... I have about 392,000 miles on it..... And it's in pretty darn good shape ( less new paint).....

But, it looks like carrying passengers and still having a large storage & a tad newer comfort level......

I stumbled on a 2005 Yukon XL 4x4 SLT. Graphite color.

1st off, to make a description of it short..... It is CLEAN.. inside / out. VERY clean!! CarFax shows oil changes every 3,000 miles. Maintenance has been kept up. ( brakes, changing tranny fluids, A/C, etc.).. Even the headlights look new. Most of the maintenance was at a local Cadillac dealer ( west Florida)....Also Michelin tires ( so the last owner respected the truck)..

Very clean underneath.... no rust.... spare tire never used ( Bridgestone )

A high option GMC.... Leather, buckets, trim. No sun roof. Not a 'ding' on the exterior paint, and paint is very good.

140,000 miles ZERO defects in interior.

So, my question..... any issues to worry about?

Even though I have owned my '88 for ever, maintenance has been more fun, rather, than too expensive.... considering....
