Here's the breakdown of the breakdowns in less than 1.5 years. 4x4 Vacuum Pump - (Under Man. Warranty) Approx Cost - $350.00 Driver Side Wheel Bearing @ 29K - $250.00 Passenger Side Wheel Bearing @ 31K - $250.00 Rear Brakes Bad @ 38K- $150.00 Rear Windshield Wiper Bad 40K - $150.00 Door Hinges (Poor Design=Water in hinges)38K- $30.00 Climate Control Board 45K - $350/part $100/Labor Just found out about "the Pitman Arm/Idler Arm" problem today 46K - $350.00 You be the judge.........

It could have been a nice car
By AlexV on 01/15/03 00:00 AM (PST)

Vehicle

1999 GMC Jimmy SLE 4dr SUV 4WD

Review

Handles well, comfy, pleasant to drive, reasonable footprint when parking or for city driving, however .... The oil cooler lines had to be replaced three times (the Jimmy is 3 1/2 years old, and has 100,000 kms (70,000 miles). Add to that a head gasket that cracked (at 100,000 kms), a rear main seal that had to be replaced (in warranty) .. not the most pleasant experience. GMC is not acknowledging that they have a problem with the oil cooler lines, even though I've been told by mechanics at three GMC dealerships that this is a known weakness.

NICKEL AND DIME TO DEATH

1999 GMC Jimmy SLS Sport 2dr SUV 4WD

Review

Where do I start, new ball joints,new plugs, wires, cap and rotor. new front stablizer bolts, c-v shaft and boot. All the above repairs still have not fixed the numerous problems and this vehicle has only 70,000 miles. I now have to replace the starter, throttle position sensor and possibly have the injectors flushed. I will be about $ 2000.00 up side down in my money pit. Do not recommend this vehicle to anyone.

no more Jimmy

Vehicle

1999 GMC Jimmy SLE 4dr SUV

Review

A new water pump, heater core flushed twice, replaced heater core, replaced radiator, replaced wheel barring casing and $2300 later I have had enough of the Jimmy. I like the look of the vehicle but the repair bills are killing me. This started happening at 50,000 miles. I had the vehicle serviced as recommended, flushed and changed everything. Just a very poor coolant system. Time for another vehicle.
