High Mileage Jimmy
Hey all. This is my first post, so I will try and be down to the point. I am looking at a 1996 AWD GMC Jimmy 4Dr. with 190,000 miles. I took it for a test drive and it drove very well actually. The private seller is asking 2,400. He has put the past 80,000 miles on it in the past 4 years and has recipts for stuff such as heater core, alternator, some suspension work(little), fuel pump, water pump, and other routine maintence. I am worried mainly about the transmission and this all time four wheel drive. I am fairly new to these SUV's so I was looking for your general insight. When I checked the trans fluid, it was a little dark, but didnt smell burnt. It shifted pretty well too...better than I would have imangined. It has a little rust, and the AC doesnt work. The compressor doesnt spin when you turn the AC on, so im sure that will have to be replaced. I know its hard to say, but I was looking for any general feelings on a GMC Jimmy with 190,000 miles. I need something for at least a year and a half, but I'd like to keep this for as long as I can, and I know I will have to put some work into it...just dont want to get caught in a huge money pit. Thanks!
