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  • As if the Jimmy didn't seem outdated enough next to the competition, now even its replacement can stare across the showroom and laugh.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

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

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.

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.

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.
