1998 GMC Jimmy LSE from North America
This car was a very expensive lemon
Battery went at about 20,000 miles.
Rear windshield wiper motor went about 25,000 miles. I have had to replace the whole front end, ball joints, bearings. I had constant belt whines.
All door hinges started rusting immediately. Constant noises in the doors which they finally fixed under warranty.
It's impossible to get the vehicle lined up properly.
I purchased it new and paid quite a bit. All my miles are highway miles.
Also had a problem with transmission fluid leaking out of it all over the garage floor.
Now I just ignore the noises. I had 850 worth of repairs last week. Guess what, the vehicle died today on the road. They think it's the fuel pump. Although this is the first time it's left me stranded, I am never going to buy an GMC again.
I'm looking into buying a Toyota 4Runner or Honda Pilot.
I have an Acura integra with 140,000 miles on it that's seen less days in the repair shop and still runs like a top.
Please think twice about buying a GMC Jimmy.
The only thing I like about it is the heated leather seats. They have not failed -- yet.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
