Review

One of the wost suvs ever made. Bought it with 93000 miles transmission went out at 103000 ball joints have been replaced 3 times heater core went out 4wd didnt work until recently until it went 4 low by its self and is stuck in 4 low. valve cover gasket blew ac went out twice. the bose system blew. Seats suck back hurts after 30 minutes after driving. the dash is cracked very bad. Door panel rattles and ripped off when i closed the door one time. Dash lights broke twice. pivment arm went out. Fuel pump let go. Radiator blew. One of the worst cars ive ever experienced. Worst 6000 dollars i ever spent. Im tempted to pull it in the back yard and set a lawn chair and watch it rot to the ground.

204k miles & running

Review

I bought my Jimmy 7 years ago with 87k miles on it. Now it has 204k & has lasted pretty well. I'd buy another one, but i'm really curious to how this "fuel efficient" life could be... My mechanic says wow the engine is built so strong. This last year was by far the worst, everything my diagnostic a few years ago told me would go wrong: did. But what do u expect? Main repeat issues: both doors kept breaking hinges. Both seat adjust handles were broken off from the time I bought it & it's an impossible to fix, so no reclining my seats for 7 years. Heater stopped working 2 years ago (expensive fix to lift engine & change a $5 part). Engine light always on due to fuel cap being loose.

Review

When I finished making payments on this truck thats when everything started to go wrong. The transmission blew twice I'm on my third one same for my alternator, water pump, ball joints and the front end, the fuel pump and the intake manifold had to be replaced twice. Then I had to replace the rear wiper motor and rear door lock, the front wiper motor, the radiator, the spider injectors, the front wheel bearings, the window and lock controls never worked right, the 4x4 actuator has to looked at before the first snow fall because it has failed me many times. Thanks to gmc I'll never never buy an American car! Again

A Solid All Around Vehicle

2000 GMC Jimmy SLT 4dr SUV

Review

It doesn't have the greatest style, highway wind noise is way too loud, the plastic interior feels very cheap and the exterior design is very basic. Those are the cons. The pros are that it is a very reliable car. I have not had one problem with it. It's driving comfort is quite good and it is good for hauling. If what you want is a solid vehicle that is reliable and piratical for yourself or a teenager's first car. You would do well with this one.

Review

This SUV has only left me stranded when the alternator went out. I bought a new one 100$. The pitman arm was bad and caused swaying all over the road and unresponsive steering replaced it and it was all fixed. I am now at 102,000 miles and have had no other problems. I have maintained it myself per gm suggestions and it still runs like new no smoke or anything, I get 25mpg on premium when light on the throttle. Not much bad I can say about the vehicle. just maintain them and they'll run a long time. It has got me through 6 winters some snow ice and mud and a bunch of hills.

Review

Replaced ball joints twice, ignition switch, oil cooler lines, drivers side door window actuator, brakes every year, broken gas gauge, blown speakers, overheating problem with a/c, transmission at 60k, squeak problem from front end, door hinges, if this thing was worth anything I would drive it off a Cliff and collect the insurance. I want my money back. Also who let this off the engineers proof w/ out further inspection.

Review

Bought this used. Had a 1995 Villager that need some money be put into it so figured would be better off with a newer vehicle. Well I was wrong. In the year since I have purchased this I have spent more money in repairs then I would have had to do to the Villager. Plus now a monthly payment. Fuel pump, hubs both sides, passenger needs it done again. Ball joints, brakes done right before I bought, needs COMPLETE brake job again. It's nice looking and good in the snow but that's about it. Dont buy. They are horrible.

Average in all regards

Review

Got my 2000 Jimmy when it had 32,000 miles. Overall, I've liked it, although it's been about average in all regards. Had to do little maintenance repairs pretty frequently ($100 here, $70 there), and "major" repairs have included front rotor and fuel pump, which hurt the pocketbook. Also own a Toyota, which has more miles on it but has required fewer repairs, which doesn't build confidence in the Jimmy. Like the engine for a V6 and the vehicle is fun to drive. Interior is average, back seats not too comfortable for full-sized person. Lots of room with rear seats folded down.
