2000 GMC Jimmy SLE 4dr SUV 4WD
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.
Comfortable, handles good with sway bar bushing improvement, Reliable, not bad MPG for a SUV, good heat/ac, cheap to maintain, benefits from bolt on modifications.
Fix rattles in the interior, more soundproofing, a little more horsepower would be nice, Sounds horrible with an exhaust.
