I also wonder needing trans work, how much lower they might go because of it...
Not too many want to buy a Yukon that already does not sound good, from the beginning!
What is the normal price in ur area for a 07 in good shape going for?

I found one listed with 113000 miles for 15k. I bet I could ask 12.5 for this one if I get it fixed. The poster hasn't emailed me back yet, I will try sending them one more email but I'm thinking someone has beet me to the punch.

RockAuto shows a rebuilt trans for the Tahoe at $1100 (plus $400 core). Looks pretty good. It is always a flag when some says mechanics special on a advertisement.

Did not hear back from the poster and the add has been deleted so looks like I missed that one. Darn it!

Well I think I found "the one". If this one pans out and checks out ok I think this is my future ride. The problem is the owner and I work opposite schedules so I think Im going to need to call into work to check this thing out. I don't want this one to get away.

Now, now... your optimism is refreshing, but you know by now that you can't promise that cherry on Craigslist isn't a polished lemon in disguise! It does look nice though. Digital cameras can be deceiving.

What I'm still trying to reconcile in my own mind (also being in the market eventually for the same HD Suburban), is selling my mid-size 2007 SUV and then buying an older 2001-2004 SUV for even more money! Vehicle replacements are supposed to get newer, not older...

It'* hard for me to fathom paying 5 figures for a 10yr old truck!

trucks are worth what ever people will pay, the bluebook and the like are mostly a tool for dealers. if its special and desirable its going to be more thats just how things work.the opposite is true hear 6.0 2500'* trucks are cheap because gas is high, people who really tow stuff want the 8.1 or diesel

Yeah I'm with you on the 5-figure older truck. I paid $9500 for our '07 Pacifica in '09, granted that was a GREAT deal that I found. But that was for a 2yo family vehicle, and the way it'* looking I'm going to pay that same amount or more for a 10yo family vehicle next! :P

I like NADA guides a little better, because supposedly those values are based on actual sales amounts from the previous years. When pricing a used vehicle on NADA, do NOT add in any of the options. Those are there for pricing the options on new vehicles... they lose their value on used vehicles.

NADA values a 2004 Yukon XL SLT K2500 (I guessed on the series, picked the "highest" option) with 75,700 miles at the following:

Rough Trade-in $8600
Average Trade-in $9050
Clean Trade-in $10,900
Clean Retail $13,775
