1999 GMC Jimmy SLT 4dr SUV


Review

I really love this vehicle; It's comfortable, drives well, and looks great. I had to do all of your basic maintenance, as well as some other stuff, but it's well worth it. I've had the problem with the door hinges, the temperature control actuator failed, and I've also had the dif rebuilt. Considering that I bought it used, and that it's almost seven years old and has over a 100k on it, I think that's pretty good. The motor is strong and runs great, the transmission is good and it's a great drive!

Review

I bought mine recently from a private seller that maintained it well. Since I've own it, I've put it through the paces, four wheeling, highway cruising, local traffic, this truck does it all. The comfort is great for this size truck; after all it's not a Mercedes. It's more than I expected , since my other vehicle is a 2004 Chevy Tahoe.


Best Features

4 wheel drive, leather, auto climate control, CD player


Worst Features

None, I like mine just the way it is.

Review

Had a '89 jimmy in high school..loved
it.
got this '99 about a year ago and hate
it. It's not as roomy as i would like
and i feel cramped.
my one year old daughter is running out
of space in the back seat.
security light keeps coming on no
matter what i do or where i bring it,
same with the service engine soon light.
don't care for the push button four
wheel drive.
right now i can't use the 4wheel drive
or it sticks on.(not good where i live).
okay ride over all
never has left me stranded
poor visability for someone my size
when backing up or turnning into a
tight spot
i like the jimmy, but i don't
probably will never buy another one


Best Features

easy monuvering in traffic and on back roads. good power.


Worst Features

inside plastics are cheap.
