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.
The back storage and how the back seats fold down flat.
When I first bought it off the dealership I had to have them replace the thermostat, radiator. I haven't had any big problems since then, but it does seem like it's slowly slipping. They charged way to much money for this SUV and it's a gas hog!
The 4 wheel drive is AMAZING!!! Oh & i love the automatic lights.
I bought this SUV used out of desperation it was actually going to auction. Silly me should've let it go. This truck has been absolutely nothing but a nightmare. I've replaced the transmission $1800. Drove it home to Michigan from sc and it actually died two blocks away from my in laws driveway. The plastic manifold is a joke it has melted twice with flames destroying gaskets so here goes another $400 in repairs. The driver side window works when it wants to, the gas Gage at 1/4 tank goes move up to 1/2 tank so you really never know how much gas you have in it. Its a money pit and in this economy who needs this! Don't buy this vehicle take it out back and put it out of your misery!
Nothing anymore! All the features I liked disappeared along with my savings from repairs!
GMC needs to get this beast off the road and come clean about the factory defects.
Bought the car as a demo, less than 10k miles..., Nothing but problems...Had to bring it back to the dealer over 15 times prior to the warranty running out. First it was Fuel Pump, Air Pump, and basically the whole engine... Then it started leaking oil out of the engine gasket. All this when it was under 36,000 miles. Total trash..... No more GMC for me. No dealer want this piece of trash for a trade in. You'd be lucky to get 1,000 for it.....
When it worked it has a nice powerful engine.... Comfortable ride.
Drive it off a cliff but don't be in it when you do....(get my drift?)
Lot of problems with radiator, water pump, thermostat and heater coil because of red antifreeze damage. There were recalls by GMC on red antifreeze and law suites against GMC, but I bought used, did not know about this an the dealer of course never mentioned any problems. Car was owned previously by a Doctor who could afford the extra maintenance. One month after purchase, It needed a water pump. It Needs a 120.00 radiator flush every 3 mo. or so to keep down rust build up in raditor. Red rust is so thick it looks like wet red clay dirt and clogs up the heater coil and water pump, heat won't work. I would not recommend that anyone buy a car that uses red antifreeze. Don't walk, run away!
Favorite Feature it has a compass, gives temperature and the gallons of gas used for the life of the care and average mpg of gas. It has lots of connections for cell phones, gps and video or cassett players. It has a towing option. The windows are tinted and seats are cloth, cooler in the summer.
GMC or any manufacturer never make another car that uses red antifreeze.
