Suckered by GMC

1998 GMC Jimmy SLS Sport 4dr SUV 4WD


Review

Horrid vehicle. Extensive problems since purchase - major mechanical failures. Sporadically refuses to start - problem untraceable by mechanical professionals. Wipers periodically choose not to work when it rains. Design a nightmare - remove whole console and side panel to replace a broken heater core? You've got to be kidding. Had Chevy with over 200k miles with no problems. Nissan the same. GMC Jimmy a nightmare. Had to get cell phone for protection due to it's unreliability. Will never own GMC product again.

Review

Good looking, poor quality vehicle; high wind noise, replaced alternator, both front wheel bearings,radiator problems, key igntion lock went bad, seat adjuster handle broke,waterpump went bad,oil cooler lines leaked and needed replaced,turn signal electrical problems...I understand most of these common on all '98 Jimmys but GM refuses to re-call. All happened right after warranty (36,000 mi)

I've owned this beauty since she was a baby. Perfect condition and only had minor problems. Rides smooth and fun to drive. On Colorado terrain, you feel safe with its stong 4WD system.

Never Again!

Review

It's five years old and I have had it for almost three years. Almost $5000 have been spent in repairs and only $1200 of that was paid by the dealer (Since I have had it). Bad climate control (took 30 days to fix), major transmission work, new front end suspension, complete brake replacement with rotors, two alternators, and two wiper motors. Not to mention the general repairs and upkeep that comes along with any vehicle. No more domestics for me!

I have owned this truck now for 5 years. I am the 1st owner. This truck has been absolutly flawless. The ownly thing that has been replaced is the altenator. It has been to the dealer for only the altenator and routine maintanence.

Review

Powerful truck with fair gas mileage. However, if you plan on making repair yourself get a different truck. This thing is impossible to work on. As with a lot of American cars, the equipment is STUFFED in. Took 4 hours to replace a leaking oil line. Also very querky. Airbag light is on, dealer could not find a problem. Windshield wipers sometimes work other times don't.

Have had some problems with transmission which would not shift out properly due to a faulty valve; also have problems with fuel pump and electrical system.
