Vehicle: 1997 GMC Jimmy SLT 4dr SUV

Absolutely the worst car I have ever owned. I have replaced transmisson, brake booster,altenator,master cylinder,A/C compressor,rear sway bar parts,front sway bar parts,radio,several plastic parts, rear main seal, still doesn't stop well brakes very mushie. Just a poorly built car most unreliable for the mileage driven. Envoy can't be much better. Would never buy another GMC SUV.
