This is a clean, unabused,adult driven 1988 Jimmy. This truck has been my daily driver for the last 5 years, and is virtually rust free. The paint is in good condition, with the exception of the roof with the typical sun damage. The seats are in serviceable condition, but really could use new covers due to cracks. The rear seat is not pictured, but has a small crack in the center due to throwing a suitcase on it on a sub zero morning...oops. The truck would be perfect for a daily driver, or a restoration due to the straightness of the body and maintenance that has already been performed. I have spared no expense in the maintenance of the truck in the 36,000 miles I have put on it. I installed a rebuilt vortec 350 in it at 140k with all new components. It still has the factory style throttle body(turbo city,new) on a GM Performance vortec/TBI intake with properly functioning EGR,headers,etc. last year I upgraded the A/C to a Sanden compressor with the appropriate R134 6mm condenser, new evaporator, accumulator,etc. the rear end was completely rebuilt with a new 3.42 gear set,bearings,seals(can't remember if it is Richmond or Yukon). Everything on the truck works. The power windows are fast(relay), the rear still needs some help up, cruise works,power door locks work, all window seals and rubber(rear top rubber too) are less than 3 years old. Tires are <25k mile Yokohama Geolandar. This truly is a hop in and go, no surprises(for a 26yr old car) 17.5mpg@80mph daily driver. I'm sure there are details that I am forgetting, but please don hesitate to ask me any questions, as I know the old truck pretty well.

GM recalling 118K Colorado, Canyon pickups over missing hood latches

Thu, 20 Dec 2012

General Motors has announced a recall of 118,800 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon pickup trucks due to the possibility of secondary hood latches not being installed at the time of manufacture. The affected vehicles are from the 2010, 2011 and 2012 model years, all of which were built between November 9, 2009 and August 28, 2012.
According to the official National Highway Traffic Safety Administration report, these trucks fail to "comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 113, 'Hood Latch System.' The hood may be missing the secondary hood latch." In other words, owners of these trucks could find their vehicles' hoods opening unexpectedly while driving.
The official recall campaign is expected to begin on January 17, 2013. Dealers will inspect the affected pickups and if a secondary hood latch is not present, one will be installed free of charge. Scroll down to read the official NHTSA report.

2015 GMC Yukon Denali

Tue, 25 Mar 2014

Automotive enthusiasts often wonder aloud - ourselves included - why General Motors would choose to keep GMC while sending Pontiac (and Saturn, and even Oldsmobile before it) into the great automotive graveyard in the sky. The answer, as is so often the case, is profit. It's much easier for GM to rake in money hand over fist by rejiggering the trucks, crossovers and SUVs that it would already be developing for Chevrolet and making them a bit more luxurious and *ahem* "Professional Grade" with new grilles, badges and unique packaging for GMC.
While it may sound like we're being cynical, we totally approve of GM's fullsize SUV strategy. The least-expensive way to get into the fold is with the Chevrolet Tahoe, which starts at $45,595 with a 5.3-liter V8 engine and a cloth interior. Bumping that same Chevy to LTZ trim and its $59,995 sticker price lands a much nicer leather-clad interior and more techno-bells and whistles than you can shake a stick at. But it still looks like a Tahoe, and it still comes with the smaller 5.3-liter engine. Or, you could do what we'd do: Walk into your GMC dealer and take a look at the Yukon Denali. Here's why.

GM appears to repurpose Saturn Outlook parts on new Acadia

Thu, 09 Feb 2012

General Motors unveiled the company's refreshed GMC Acadia at the 2012 Chicago Auto Show yesterday, and if you were paying attention, you may have noticed something curious about the vehicle. While the new Acadia looks considerably better than its predecessor, a few components of the design looked more than a little familiar. Upon closer observation, it appears that GM has simply repurposed elements of the now defunct Saturn Outlook crossover on the 2013 Acadia. Both vehicles seem to share the same wrap-around rear glass, back hatch, tail light openings and exaggerated, squared-off fender arches.
While the vehicles are differentiated by badging, tail lamps and a rear valance, there's no denying the similarities toward the vehicle's rear. Up front, both share similar fenders, though adjustments have been made for the varying headlight designs.
That's good news if you just can't imagine life without the Saturn Outlook.
