2000 GMC Jimmy Problems

Brakes -- Verified

The Anti-lock brake system (ABS) control unit may fail internally causing the ABS warning light to illuminate.

Heating & Air Conditioning -- Verified

The heater core under the right side of the dashboard may leak engine coolant which can puddle on the passenger front floor. The loss of coolant may cause an engine overheating condition. Our technicians tell us that removal of the dash board is necessary to replace the heater on these vehicles.

Engine -- Verified

The fuel pump may fail causing the engine to stall and not restart. Our technicians recommend replacing the fuel filter every 30,000 miles to help prevent undue strain on the fuel pump.

Drive Train -- Verified

Vehicles equipped whit a 4 speed automatic transmission may develop a harsh 1-2 shift and/or illumination of the Check Engine Light with code P1870 stored. This can be caused by wear of the bore for the TCC isolator and regulator valves in the valve body. This condition does not commonly occur until the transmission reaches normal operating temperature. If the valve body is worn, replacement will be necessary to correct this concern.

Exhaust & Emissions -- Verified

A Loose or worn gas cap may cause Check Engine Light to illuminate.

2000 GMC Jimmy Reviews

I have 2000 GMC SLE Jimmy which I bought new. It's been nothing but a nightmare since I've owned it. I've changed the water pump 3 times. A defective radiator seal caused fluid to leak in the oil compartment which cost over $1000 to repair. The A/C condenser coil water leaks on the passenger carpet and the GMC dealership NEVER correctly addressed this problem, while it was still under warranty. The problem still exists. The dealership also never correctly addressed a wheel knock issue on the front right area, while under warranty. Their lame answer for both problems were, "We can't find anything wrong." A World War II Sherman tank has a more comfortable suspension than this royal piece of garbage. I've changed every sensor and switch imaginable, that should not have gone bad, but did. The most qualified mechanics are dumbfounded about the many other problems I continue to have with this vehicle. I would recommend a jackass and buckboard before I would recommend a GM vehicle to anyone. NAFTA has destroyed American manufacturing quality! Our elected officials are bought and paid for traitors!

2000 jimmy has 104 k on it.it has been a p o s sense i bought it replace the whole front end uppers, lowers, inners, outters, idler, pitman,front wheel bearings,the motor,fuel pump.2 make a long story short this has been the worst jimmy i have ever had.my 98 2 door had way less problems than the 2000 4 door

I have had this Jimmy for 4 yrs a everyday driver have only had to replace the fuel pump once ,wheelbearings once and serpentenie belt once has been a great SUV

Have had to install new fuel pump,catylytic converter,brakes,heater core and wheel bearings. All happened at around 68,000 miles. I currently have 70,400 miles on vehicle and it is running fine except for a whinning from alternator which dealer can't find cause.Today I noticed a smell of rubber burning which seems to be coming from rear wheel.
