Why I'm Keeping My Jimmy For A Long, Long Time. —

Strong acceleration, great low end torque. Some body roll. Exhaust note is low and mellow at idle, but growls at full throttle. Build quality good. Some squeaks and rattles, especially in the door panels. Bose sound system really thumps. Basic repairs and maintenance needed. No surprises. Repairs are extremely affordable due to the huge popularity of the Blazer/Jimmy/Bravada/S-10/Sonomas that share the platform. Exterior styling unique from Blazers. Unlike most cars, looks great in two-tone. Interior looks best in grey/brown. Dark grey is too dark. Floor shifter is nice (certain years, others had column shifter) Seats are comfortable. Plenty of leg room in the back. Pickup sized cargo area with seats folded down. Gas mileage is pretty poor, (12mpg city/19 highway) but for the power at the disposal of your right foot, I'll take it =D Blast to drive; handles mountain roads like a champ. Only kill joy is the body roll in sharp corners, but the high output 4.3 makes up for any braking you have to do. High end acceleration is adequate, but low end is where the Jimmy hauls. Feels safe. Sunroof is the best option on the car. 4x4 system is a champ, ground clearance reasonable. Suspension is both comfortable on road and competent off road, but feels too soft at times (luxury ride suspension is standard on the SLE) Headlights could be brighter, but an HID system or Silvania Silverstars is an easy fix. As a student, I sometimes wish I had bought a sporty car instead, but when the weather turns bad, you're headed to the mountains, or you need the extra space, you're reminded why this is such a great truck. And when you are in the mood to drive, you aren't penalized for buying an SUV. Long live the Jimmy =)

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Acceleration, 4x4 system, interior space, capability, Bose system really thumps

Cons: Fuel economy, headlights could be brighter

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It will get you from A to B...maybe. but its sturdy

Cons: just about everything has gone wrong with it

My 2000 Gmc Jimmy —

The Good: Good all around vehicle, mine has 321,000 km's on it, doesn't burn a drop of oil, AC still works, and still has plenty of power. handling and braking and decent. interior is very nicely crafty, the heated power leather seats are very comfortable and the sunroof is a very nice feature. i love the way this truck looks inside and out, i only have the stock 15" steel rims right now but when i get the 22" voodoos i'll be a happy camper. The Bad: disapointed first of all with the stock sound system, its Bose, but sounds a little more like CRAP! the interior noise is more then what it should be, their are way too many rattles and squeeks. the 4.3 vortec does have good power and torque but you pay for it in gas milage. i was able to get my overhead computer to give me exact readings on what gas milage i was getting at that time and took some tests, here is what i found: with the cruise control on between 50 and 90 km per hour, you get 22 MPG, at 100: 20, 120: 18, and at 159 (just before the autmatic gas shut off) you are getting 9 mpg, not to mention, if you floor it, you are down to 3 mpg. i know this vehicle has alot of milage but it seems like i'm spending half my time at the garage writing checks, everything beyond the engine seems to always need repairs, such as the 4WD, ABS, not to mention all the interior electronics like the heated seats, sunroof, and power seats that i don't even both to fix anymore. overall its a good vehicle if you can afford to keep it on the road, i'm sure jimmy's with less km's have less problems, i'm only speaking about what i know personally.

Pros: Bad ass looks inside and out, good power, affordable midsized SUV that will get you noticed.

Cons: REPAIRS! Gas milage, sound system sucks, expensive to keep on the road even with todays low gas prices.

A Solid 4wd Vehicle That Will Run Longer Than Cher — Jamie is a beast. I bought her because I was tired of being the little car that gets smushed by the huge truck, and because I enjoy 4WD. Jamie has delivered everything I wanted from her. She has over 160,000 miles on her now (43,000 when I bought her) and is still going strong. Only major issue was a failed fuel sending unit, but I forgive her. =)

Pros: Auto-4WD, comfortable, excellent cargo room.  Almost 2 tons, so you'll probably win in
an accident. =)

Cons: gas mileage sucks, but then again, it didn't when I bought her. =)

Great Small Suv — The Jimmy is a great SUV it has a lot of space and is great to drive in the winter and summer. I wish they still made SUV's this way. One of the best things is that it didn't cost me a lot of money to drive it.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: They hold up very well

Cons: Nothing really
