When I got it the driver's seat had already started to wear.
Three weeks out of the first month that I owned it, the Jimmy was in the shop. The passenger's side floor board kept getting wet. A rubber seal that goes between the air conditioning condensation drain tray and the firewall had a wrinkle in it that allowed water to run down the inside of the firewall.
EGR valve went bad at 37,000 miles.
Had to put a new battery in around 60,000 miles. Previous service history records show it had been replaced at 17,000 miles by the previous owner.
Around 61,000 miles the passenger's side seat recliner handle broke. I bought the part, but still haven't put it on.
New tires all around at 65,000 miles.
At 92,000 miles I had to have ball joints, idler arms - basically the entire front end replaced.
110,000 miles the oil cooler hoses were leaking and had to be replaced.
132,000 miles some of the lights on the AM/FM/Cassette radio burned out.
135,000 miles right front hub assembly had to be replaced when the bearing went out.
150,000 miles alternator went out. It had overcharged the battery and made it leak so I did have to buy a new battery also.
170,000 miles the left front hub assembly had to be replaced.
175,000 miles the front wiper control module went out.
177,000 the fuel pump abruptly died without warning.
178,000 miles new shocks all around.
179,000 miles and time for new tires all around again.
Around 180,000 the rear wiper motor stripped.
183,965 miles and the left front hub assembly had to be replaced again. At the same time I had both ball joints replaced as they were pretty loose.
185,000 miles anti-lock brake wheel speed sensor on the right front started going out. Works part of the time and doesn't part of the time.
Wow, what a ride. I really enjoy driving my Jimmy.
I get 20 miles per gallon with a 50-50 mix of highway and small town driving. When I get out on the four-lane and travel, I average 22 miles per gallon.
It does not burn oil and has no leaks from the engine, transmission, or rear-end.
The wind really beats me up. If it is blowing 20 mph or more I have a real battle to stay between the lines.
