1999 GMC Jimmy SLE 4dr SUV


Through four years of service this
vehicle has been surprisingly reliable.

It has had just two issues (head gasket
had to be replaced under warranty, and
the alternater went out at about 42,000
miles), which is better than we

The interior is well-designed and
functional, although the plastics are
inferior and have deteriorated in some
places. The engine is excellent, plenty
of torque and acceleration. Handling is
cumbersome and the ride is jiggly over
uneven surfaces. The ride is excellent
on smooth roads. Overall, this SUV has
been an excellent value.

Best Features

Easy fold flat rear seats make the interior very useful; sound system is very good.

Worst Features

Plastics are cheap and in areas of constant use, like sun visors, they deteriorate quickly. Gas mileage is poor (about 15-16 in city; 19-20 highway).
