Used Jimmy worth it?

Home  \  General Chat  \  Used Jimmy worth it?

Hello there everyone,

I have been shoping for a used car that is safe and reliable. Its going to be my first car as well, so i don't want to just jump and buy a tin can. After searching I found a used 2000 Jimmy with 125000 on it. I took it for a spin and brought it to a few friends of mine to discuss some issues it may have. My biggest concern is the transmission. It was rebuilt. I took it to a guy and he said it looked good, but i'm still a little shaky with that. Its a 4WD but i'll hardy use it and i'll never put it in Low.
Is 2300 too much, just right, or should i walk away?

I like it a lot though. It rides very smooth and i think it has a nice balance of size and power.

Just curious if it is worth it since i am new to the whole car shopping thing.

The price being worth it depends on which currency you're talking about really...On the surface it seems okay though.

4.3 V6? I would assume automatic trans. Do those have push-button 4WD or regular transfer shifter?

Push button. should be. Watch and check the ball joints. And the U-joints. Both are huge issues with Blazers/S-10s/Sonomas/Jimmys.
