"I bought this vehicle new and I did have some problems with it in the beginning. For instance, it needed new freeze plugs at 9000 miles. Once it got the kinks worked out, I've had no other problems other than routine maintainance. I got the Euro package which makes the handling tight. The steering is a bit mushy, but I think that is a GM trademark. The seats are comfortable and have lumbar support and are customizable to the driver. The 4WD is easy to use-no more lugs to turn-and it works well. My only complaint is the trim has worn poorly and I would love to replace it, but don't believe it is possible. No matter what other vehicle I buy, I will never sell my baby."

"I bought my 1998 Jimmy in February of 2001 with 34,000 miles on it. My wife was the primary driver of this vehicle until 2005 when we gave it to our daughter. She drove it through college and her first year of marriage and when she and her husband bought a new car, my son-in-law started driving it. He ran the wheels off of it, and upon their divorce the car was returned to me with some over 168,000 miles on it. Throughout the years that my wife and I had the vehicle it performed flawlessly and gave us no trouble at all. Always reliable, pleasant to drive and very comfortable. We live in Michigan, so the car spent a lot of time in the snow and had occasional forays off road in the upper penninsula and never let us down. It is one of my favorite vehicles of all that I have owned. (some 40 vehicles so far) The dilema I face now is after getting the vehicle back from my ex son-in-law it is going to take about 2,000 dollars worth of work (front end, tires, alternator) to get it back in top notch condition. I hate to give the truck up, but cannot decide if I should fix or sell at this time. In addition to my Jimmy, I currently own a 2002 GMC Sierra 2500 HD, a 2002 GMC Envoy SLT and a 1914 GMC Topkick mid-range commercial truck. Love them all!! I have a Honda Civic and a Chrysler LeBaron ragtop too, but I love my GMCs and plan to get another as my next vehicle purchase."
