"Have had my 2000 GMC Jimmy for over 10 years. I am the second owner. We have been careful to maintain it and it has been a very dependable vehicle. We sure got our moneys worth!"

"4 Drive system has been trouble after on this vehicle for 15 years. Drive and Handle good. Been on many trips in it. Only thing I did not like is the cup holder in front of the gear shift. White Paint has held up excellent with a gold strip. Good looking Alloy wheels. Car actually runs as good today as when I good it. Only major item was I replace the AC compressor and Acculmalator in 2013. Have keep it serviced on a regular monthly bases by independent auto shop."

"this was a hand me down from my dad he used it for work (hauling way too much weight with it) that said we went through two rear ends but it still chugs. these little jimmys are quick little cars too with the vortec. there is body damage but that is to be expected from a 14 year old car used for construction work. worth every penny of ages we have put into it. always has started for me and has never had a serious engine issue (only issues are that the o2 sensor went out and we had to replace spark plugs on the left side because it was dumping gas). overall a great surprising reliable car. recommended!"
