Review of the 2001 GMC Jimmy

  • As if the Jimmy didn't seem outdated enough next to the competition, now even its replacement can stare across the showroom and laugh.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Wide model range, plenty of available features, sleek styling.

  • Cons

    No V8 available, some low-buck interior bits, revamp due in 2002

  • What's New for 2001

    The Vortec 4300 V6 enjoys another round of improvements, plus the Jimmy adds programmable door locks and a new cargo management system to its long list of features for 2001. A floor-shift option is now available on two-door models with automatic transmission, and the four-wheel-drive SLE version touts restyled alloy wheels. The tarted-up Envoy has been dropped but the glitzy Diamond Edition, introduced last year to mark the 30th anniversary of the Jimmy nameplate, is back -- packing more pizzazz.

Vehicle: 2001 GMC Jimmy SLE 4WD 4dr SUV (4.3L 6cyl 4A)

Yes, very reliable OVER SIZED STATION WAGON. Awesome in the snow with the original Good Year Wrangler tires but a very expensive vehicle to maintain. Sealed front wheel bearings and brakes always seem to fail and are costly repairs. I've had mine for 10 plus years and I just put $2,000 into the breaks, bearings and idler arms or some crap like that and honestly, I'm glad I did. This "truck" is a great work horse, 144k miles, and I love to beat the hell out of it off roading at the farm. Maintain it and the mechanic said I can go another 100k miles easy. beats a car payment and insurance on a new vehicle!




Tlc goes a long way.

I've had my GMC Jimmy for about 6 months. When I bought it the trans was rebuilt the oil cooler lines and the coolant was just flushed. Me and my Jimmy had a rocky relationship at first, I had to replace intake gasket, fuel pump, front hubs, and some other more minor things. But now that I gave my Jimmy some TLC it is a great workhorse. It has a strong engine, it can tow a trailer sufficient for my needs, and I can fit all my tools in the back. The four wheel drive is excellent. I'm 6"3 and can sit comfortably in the drivers seat. . I change my oil regularly and take care of any maintenance right away. Its a great SUV. Take care of your car and it will take care of you!

my jimmys a 2001 that i received as my first vehicle a couple of years ago i put around 20,000 miles on it myself and its still below 100,000 miles and it runs amazing the only major problems ive had so far is my brake calipers seized up which is my fault for letting it sit too long, my spedometer doesnt work quite correctly and my fuel sensor is a little dirty but other then that i beat the crap out of it especially in winter and it still runs amazing, but if you dont keep up with it maintence wise then yea youll have problems, but thats with all vehicles

Not bad over the years

Vehicle: 2001 GMC Jimmy SLT 4WD 4dr SUV (4.3L 6cyl 4A)

I wanted to pass along my thoughts on this car. I had bought new and had the following replaced: Ball joints, intake manifold gasket, door hinges. That said, until now I have not had many issues other than fuel economy. The doors have awful hinges that are not adjustable. If they are used a lot, they fail and need to be drilled out and re-bushed. Terrible design. Lastly, I am now in the looking for another SUV because the Jimmy needed a Crankshaft Sensor replaced because of fouling caused by the intake coolant leak. Well it needed a computer "reset" to fix the erratic engine and now I think we killed the motor. Oh well, 160,000 not bad.

Vehicle: 2001 GMC Jimmy SLS 2WD 2dr SUV (4.3L 6cyl 5M)

I bought my 2001 GMC Jimmy SLS used in 2004. It was a dealer buy-back because of electrical problems. I have 118,000 miles on it with no serious mechanical repairs. Yes, it has needed brakes, but that's normal. Had a serious vibration problem which was found to be missing washers in the hood hinges. A cheap repair and it's quiet. I like this vehicle a lot. My only regret is that it isn't 4 wheel drive.




I luv my jimmy!

Bought used 2006..only major problem was the gas tank back in 2008. This year, 2010, was the axle. It's at 190,000 today and just thought I celebrate this milestone and say maybe GMC didn't make MY Jimmy so bad after all.
