2001 GMC Jimmy SLS 4.3 from North America
Good SUV, but with its share of problems
Within only 20000k I had to replace my alternator, starter, intake manifold, belt, signal stat, pinion seal, and I had a bad ground problem which would not allow me to start the Jimmy sometimes (starter wouldn't engage)
Even with all these problems, the alternator, starter and belt are just wear and tear, very minor problems really, but the intake manifold was the expensive fix. The big problem with the intake manifold is which coolant GM was putting in their vehicles, that's what caused the intakes to leak.
Even with all these problems, I really loved my Jimmy, very comfortable ride, good handling considering, and good 4x4.
Also the 4.3 is a great engine in my opinion, but sucks back gas.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
