1999 GMC Jimmy SLT 4dr SUV 4WD


Quite nice to drive, when it works. I've never had a car with more issues. 36K warranty not nearly enough. Ignition module replaced three times (once under warranty. 35K, 65K, 98K). Smoke from the steering column as your electrical fails is not fun. New engine at 70K (radiator failed, overheated and took out the head and engine). Catalytic converter replaced at 106. Passenger recline lever snapped off in passengers hand and can't be fixed (the shaft broke). The AC stopped at about 100K. I haven't investigated yet. Other than that, no issues to speak of!

Best Features

Full-time all wheel drive. Nice size (not too big)

Worst Features

Electrical reliability. Gas mileage is not good for a small SUV. Dextron should be changed much more often than the 50K originally claimed.
