1998 GMC Jimmy SL 4dr SUV 4WD


My parents bought me this car when I turned 16, they got it for about $3000. Unfortunately, they didnt take the time to make sure everything was in good shape. Over the past 2.5 years Ive replaced: Trans, a/c condenser, cat converter, front hub assmebly, radiator, exhaust, battery (twice), several computer chips, and now my fuel pump just died. I'm pretty sure theres more, but I cant even remember. I'd also expect a small SUV to get a little better mileage. By now, I could have bought 3 of these with the price of repairs - this thing is such a headache and a money pit, I can't wait to get rid of it. This will hands down be the last GM I ever buy.

Best Features

Fun to drive, decent 4x4

Worst Features

Pretty much everything, I can see why they stopped making them...
