Drove em All the Jimmy Won Out by Rmpgtp1 Cranford, NJ on 03/04/2001. Trim: 2001 GMC Jimmy SLT 4-Door 4WD, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: 2nd Week with the Jimmy. Mine is Loaded every option except Locking Diff never have never will tow anything so i skipped the tow package. I Really like my Indigo Blue paint and Beige interior it is one of the nicest looking trucks in its class.I love the memory seats and Bose system. The interior is made of much better materials than any of the JAP Trucks the leather has a great feel and smell to it. Much Better made than ANY of the Explorer's and (GOD WHY WOULD YOU WANT TO BUY A DODGE)
Cons: Gripes:Black Steering wheel with beige interior, lighting controls look like lego land, 8 way pwr seats need better adustments cant find the perfect spot. Cheap Tires on a 34k truck, I would like them to be larger and wider. A 16" rim and a chrome option should be offered please I'll pay the difference for it.You should be able to option the xenons on any SLT especially in the 1SF package. The front airdam from the 2000 Envoy should Have been brought over to the 2001 Jimmy because the Fog Lights are useless on the Current front end.Stupidly you cant set them to come on automatically with the parking lights you have to turn them on every time you drive at night
Overall review: I bought the Jimmy we were thinking about starting a family and my lease was up. I traded in my 99 Grand Prix GTP I Test Drove everything The Jimmy won out. I thought I was going to hate the Jimmy 190HP that sucks especially coming off of 240hp Im really impressed this 3900lb hulk moves all the way to 70 then it dies it needs some more top end. In comparision to its rivals i think its one of the fastest. The only thing faster was the 240hp Pathfinder this truck with the Same options as my Jimmy is also 3k more. They will tell you that the RX300 is faster but it also starts at 40k its a car with a lift,Wouldn't want to get hit in that thing yeah its got all kinds of airbags and maybe its not as Tippy but in most fender benders id rather have a ladder frame underneath. GM has the best lease deals i got my 34k Jimmy for a 39 month lease GM paid the first payment all i put out was $117 for plates Im Paying $365 a month. If you want a great price and a good solid truck buy the Jimmy
