2000 GMC Jimmy Diamond Edition from North America
It's a nice truck, but has major flaws GM pretends not to know about
I was reading the list of things wrong with the Chevy Blazer and GMC Jimmy of this year and I have had all the same problems like clock work.
My ball joints were bad, all four were replaced at about 40K.
My gas gauge sending unit went out and the gas tank had to be dropped to replace it at about 40K.
My turn signal relay went out and the turn signals stopped working at about 40K.
The oil cooler had a leak and was fixed at about 40K.
(I saved up all of the above and had them all fixed at once when the turn signals stopped working).
My alternator went out at 42K.
The electric tail glass switch stopped working, I never had it fixed.
The lights on the instrument cluster that illuminate the speedometer periodically shut off. I have to hit the cluster to get them to come back on.
Over all, I really do like this truck. It looks pretty and I've taken good care of it. I am lucky I bought an extended bumper to bumper warranty on it so all of the above repairs only cost me $250 out of pocket, but about $3800 worth of work.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
