"I have had my Jimmy for 4 years now. I have not had any real problems with it. Doesn't get very good gas mileage, about 16 miles to the gallon. I really thought it would get better mileage since it only has a 6 cylinder. The gas guage went out on it with in the first year of having it and it costs way too much to replace. Very comfortable for long trips, I've made 5 to Florida from Louisiana and back. I think that it a real pretty truck. Don't have a lot of quick power, but does real well after you peak. Overall, I have been real satisfied with everything except the gas milage. the ball joints completely separating on the left side disabling the vehicle and numerous other small defects such as u joint, crank shaft sensor and wiring problems. The list goes on and on. I bought this for me because I liked the styling. Unfortunately everything else has been a disappointment at best including the support I received from General Motors when presenting these issues to them. As a certified ASE General mechanic and a former General Motors dealership mechanic at a number of dealerships I expected much more in the way of customer service."

"I purchased this car new 19 years ago and it's still running very good. After 19 years, the body, while not gone, is disappearing! Has been a very good cost effective car. 4 doors would have been a better car."

"Bought this car in 2004 with 65K miles on it. Now that it has been over 10 years - I would say a good car. Problems: had to change bearings twice, seats aren't that comfortable, had trouble getting the ignition key out and used a screw driver for 6 years, but other than that it was a good purchase. Rusted out (Michigan weather) but got rear ended one day at a bus stop and it started rusting after that."

Cons: "Backed into pole, some minor damage"

"Just had a warrantied, reconditioned engine installed as I was going to keep it forever. But I am too old. It is too high and I cannot see well enough. New Tires, excellent condition, little rust (very little), white in color, full tow package, top luggage rack; it is just a great car and you can do anything with it. 4 wheel drive. Warranty is transferrable and good for 3 years - all records kept since it was new. One owner before me, the father of a Caddy dealer in Venice. New tires, new battery, great sound, best truck - you will love it. My mother is almost 90 and just gave me her car, a 2000 Buick which is more my speed now that I am older. Selling to first one with cash, I live in Englewood, Florida, south of Sarasota and North of Ft. Myers. Also has car cover (was $178 just for that!) Some minor damage on dashboard, heat, but not looking for the moon for it."
