This SUV is so awesome. I posted a review on it before, but wanted to say this...

Today I test drove a 2005 GMC Jimmy thinking I would get ANOTHER one. But after driving the 2005 Jimmy I was actually quite disappointed in it compared to my 1994 GMC Jimmy. Although the interior of my 1994 is outdated, the rest of the vehicle is awesome. It runs great, it is so comfortable and I can do just about anything with it (tow, off-road, haul stuff). It just does everything!! I will honestly spend $3000 putting a new motor in my 1994 Jimmy before I would invest $15,000 or $20,000 in the new one. I think GM is making crap now.

So if you are considering a GMC Jimmy or Chev Blazer go with the older styles. You'll have to invest the odd $$$$ in repairs, but the rewards far exceed the expenses. I will keep sinking money in to my 1994 to keep it on the road - it's worth every penny and cheaper than a monthly payment for a new one that I didn't even like as much as my old one. My Jimmy is a true blue truck and I gotta love it!

Okay, so I went out and bought ANOTHER 1994 GMC Jimmy SLT - exact same - green/black leather interior except for a 3" lift on this one. As they say in the McDonald's commercials... "bah bah I'm lovin it!"

Even though the moment I pull into the driveway, my hubby will have some work to do, but nothing major, and all worth it!

I have a 1994 Jimmy and couldn't be happier with it. The only issue I have with it right now is that it is starting to rust out pretty bad, but other than that it is still running strong at 179,000 miles!

Jimmy's are absolutely horrible, very slow, breaks down every month


New Bearings, Heater Core, Master Cylinder, Leaky exhaust, Terrible rust, basically everything you can imagine.

General Comments:

I have had the Jimmy for about six months now, and I have had to put about $3000 in it, it constantly breaks down. Although it is huge inside, big enough for a beanbag chair and TV, but its not worth it. I will never buy a jimmy again.

1994 GMC Jimmy SLT 4.3 litre from North America


Great SUV


Easier to say what hasn't went wrong, but don't get me wrong. I love this SUV. My husband and I bought it off my co-worker for $2,000. It was a full load, leather and remote start even! (for Canada this is important!). But we knew she was going to need some work. So crossing our fingers that we didn't get in to too much trouble, we bought the truck and a new motor from a wrecker. My hubby cleaned up the tranny and changed the brakes and fuel pump and did a few minor adjustments (new distributor cap and spark plugs/wires). The truck is a dream. It's got tons of power, is comfortable and is a pleasure to drive. We know it's going to need stuff, but for $3,000 we have the utility of a $30,000 vehicle. If you are a backyard mechanic and can maintain your own vehicle and want an off-roading, comfortable, powerful machine, then this might be the truck for you. If you have no mechanical ability - stay away.

General Comments:

I know this isn't the most reliable vehicle, but the positives sure out way the negatives. And it's cheap to keep on the road. The guy that owned it before us did not maintain his vehicle. Every fluid was filthy and you could tell standard maintenence was not kept up. We bet he would have been a lot happier had he have given the truck some TLC. We are going to TLC it always.

A lift kit, some polish and we are off and running!
