1996 GMC Jimmy SLT 4.3L from North America
Make it, sell it, junk it. All in the same day
First off, it was my manifold gasket, with water leaking into the engine, causing the oil to fill with water.
Then, my catalytic converter has gone to oblivion, porcelain parts loose and banging around in my cat and muffler.
Now I just received an estimate for my ball joints, idler arm, and pitman arm, well let's just say it's gonna cost me over 1800.00 to replace it all. I spent 850.00 on the coolant, manifold gasket, and green replacement antifreeze. Yes, DEX-COOL is very, shall I say, "Crap".
I will never own one of these again. Honda, here I come. Bah!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Daughter's family own a 1997 Jimmy and the thing is always being worked on. I won't say fixed as there never seems to be an end to problems. Ball joints, idler arms, pitman arm, air conditioning, radiator and CD player to name a few.Don't say it's lack of preventative maint. as it's always been greased and lubed and oil changed. Just a very poor vehicle.
