Cons

Gas

1999 Gmc Jimmy — 1999 GMC Jimmy is a nice truck. It has a lot of towing capacity, and is the best vehicle I've ever driven in the snow. It looks good and is fully loaded, has a lot of great options. The mileage isn't great, but what do you expect from a truck.

Good Solid Truck — Jimmy has served me well over the years. Has ignition issues with corroded distributor cap. Replaced a couple of water pumps and the fuel pump. But she is still chugging along even with the beating i give that poor vehicle. Would buy another... versatile, easy to fix, dependable truck.

My 1999 Gmc Black Jimmy Slt — Bought her used, but what a deal. The SLT has all the frills, fully automatic, Air conditioned, Heated leather seats, CD Stereo radio system with great sound. Back seats fold down and make a perfect area for my 2 dogs as well as supplies with room to spare. Sun roof, tow package, 4WD with push button on/off on the dash, rack on top to stow skies, tent, kayak, etc. I still get 26 mpg about town and 30 on the freeway. If you are lucky to be the original owner or purchase a used well taken care of Jimmy, you know you are lucky to have it! Regular maintenance will keep them running for a long time. I hope mine outlast me as they no longer make this size and model. Next to my `88 Ford Ranger, I love my Jimmy!! So do my dogs!!

This truck turns heads!

Cons

The suspension leaves little room for modification

Off Road/ Commuter Urban Assault Vehicle — Considering the basic SUV design of the Jimmy, I have found mine to be suprisingley efficient and comfortable. Decent gas mileage , with just enough get up and go when required. I have a blast driving this truck , I am approached and questioned about it regularily.
