2000 GMC Jimmy Diamond Edition 4.3 V6 Vortec from North America
Beautiful truck, but costly repairs
Radiator replaced (may have been mechanics fault)
Intake manifold gasket at 110,000 (thanks to the first appearance of Dexcool)
Transfer case started having problems 2 days before trading it in.
Shocks were on their way out.
Balljoints constantly go, though I never got the chance to replace any; I sold the truck before they would go.
Engine is good, only problems are Dexcool related (whole cooling system will go on you; heater core, heater cooler lines, radiator)
The original Dexcool would eat the gaskets and so on, causing the above problems.
Truck too heavy for its frame, causing suspension problems (ball joints, shocks).
Beautiful looking truck, but could no longer afford $600 repairs per visit to the mechanic.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
