My Green Jimmy
By RHB3124 on
1996 GMC Jimmy SLT 4dr SUV 4WD
Bought my Jimmy used with 96,000 miles on it. Now have 196000 on it and while I have had to replace maintenance items, overall it been dependable. A little noisy in the front end, probably needs carrier bearings. Ball joints and shocks & wheel bearings have been replaced. Otherwise plenty of power for what I do. Have had to replace water pump, (radiator(plastic broke)) (AC cooling coil(Struck)) fuel pump and driver side door hinge. 4 wheel drive works as long as I engage and disengage it in the driveway in the summer to keep it freed up. Not much rust for as old as this truck is getting. I would buy another just like it. Hope GMC will downsize one of their SUV's someday so I can buy one
Ease of use and repair. Appearance & drive train.
Better diagrams on the internet. The dealers maintenance manuals should be available on the internet for 30 years. I like the truck. Better front suspension. Better qualified people to work on front suspension at dealership.
