1999 GMC Jimmy SLT from North America
Consumer Choice should rate this GMC Jimmy 1999 SLT as a bad purchase
Fall of 2003 - the heating coil was clogged. (Dealership cleaned out the clog, but forgot to clean the radiator)
Cost $1100 to fix.
Fall of 2004 - heater stopped again - had a leak in the intake manifold and the water pump - the vally pan was mixing with oil and antifreeze. Cost $1300 to fix.
Due to a previous owner accident - was unaware that the factory sunroof was leaking - causing my 4 wheel drive computer to burn up. No 4x4 on this vehicle currently - as it cost up-wards of $900 to fix.
Over all - the first year I had my Jimmy I loved it! It was a great car - had the works on it - 4x4, leather and heated seats, power everything, 6 disk CD changer...
The end of the second year of owner ship - the vehicle started to have a lot of issue - the 4x4 computer burned up. Then the heater stopped working and after fixing it last year - had to fix it all again this year. For only have 75K miles on it... that is ridiculous. I HATE this car! It was the worst purchase I could have made. Buyer be ware! The dealership was awful - and the car is costing more than it is worth.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Response to the comments...
My family had all owned GMC and Chevy products before.
No I didn't get a carfax - before purchasing this vehicle - I did later and found taht it had been in a minor accident.
What is minor to you or me might be major to someone else.
No visible damage. The vehicle looked good - at the dealer.
No - nothing dropped on my noggin' from the sun/moon roof it all ran down into the car - not me - not visible.
Again - this is a lemon - as you can read many others agree. It is a bad purchase and it is only getting worse. Can't wait to pawn it off onto a dealer and move on with a NEW car.
Good luck to all of you.
