2001 GMC Jimmy Owner Comments

2001 GMC Envoy - gas tank neck leaking at grommet. GM does not offer a fix. The cost of replacing tank with labor is an absurd $600-$800 dollars. This should be cause for recall of all similar models.

Event leading to failure: I was stupid enough to buy the lemon in the first place. The failure (s) occur on a regular basis. I bought this 2001 GMC Jimmy in 2004. As a certified used car. It had 38,075 miles on it. I didn't have it a month before the left front wheel bearing went out. Shortly after the pollution control air pump went out. Then it was the air filter pump and hoses to the remote filter. Next came replacement of all four brake rotors. All of this before 40,000 miles. Next came the fuel pump(April 2006).a couple of months later it was the fuel pressure regulator and fuel sensor. Then it was replacing the 2wd/ 4WD selector module in the dash. Next in line was a new alternator. Less than a year later it was another new alternator, a couple of days ago it was another new fuel pump. There are at least a dozen other things that were replaced. I only mentioned the really costly items. I have spent just a little over $5000 on this piece of junk. Contacting GMC customer complaints is a big waste of time. I'll never buy another GMC anything. The federal government should pull the plug and let GMC close down forever.

The contact owns a 2001 GMC Jimmy. The contact noticed that the on-board diagnostic system warning indicator would consistently illuminate on the instrument panel. The vehicle frequently misfired, which caused it to be inoperable. The dealer stated that he needed to replace the scpi fuel injector and the mass air flow sensors at the cost of $1,150. He is in the process of having the vehicle repaired. He called the manufacturer in reference to a voluntary recall for the state of California for 1996 to 2001 SUV's, but was not provided any assistance because the recall was not applicable for his state. The current and failure mileages were 72,000.
