A great suv!

Vehicle: 2002 GMC Envoy XL SLT 4WD 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)

I've had this Envoy, SLT-XL V6 since new in 8/2002, 6.5 yrs. with 115K miles. It has been great except for modulator for A/C replaced at 4yrs. Everything works fine, ride is great, carries 7 avg. sized men with room for a large cooler. Great gas mileage, 24+ highway and 17+ around town. On occasion will shift from 2wd to AWD for no reason. Mechanic has looked at twice. This has actually been in the shop less than my friend's 2002 Acura TL. I have back problems and the driver's seat is the best around for the electric adjustable lumbar support. Overall very pleased with this vehicle.




Another great gm vehicle

Vehicle: 2002 GMC Envoy XL SLT 2WD 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)

I bought this Envoy XL new and love it. It has hauled trailers, doors, 2X4s, furniture and many other things including 7 passengers. This vehicle has only been back to the dealer twice and once was for a beauty item that I didn't like the looks. Sadly, it is time for a new vehicle (every 7 years as the GM credit card dollars start to expire)and I do not like the replacement Acadia due to the back glass not opening.




How do you treat your

Vehicle: 2002 GMC Envoy XL SLE 4WD 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)

I purchased my 2002 GMC Envoy 4 years ago with 43k miles on it. The only maintainance I have done is change the oil, brakes, and tires. Sometimes I will wash it. This has been the most reliable SUV I have ever owned. How do other people drive and maintain? Easy on the gas and this SUV will take care of you. I currently have 188,468 miles on it and still runs as smooth as butter. It is a 2002. 8 years later and still runs like new. Time to buy a new and pass this to my daughter.




I love my envoy

I love my Envoy! It has a lot of room (including a third row of seats), a moonroof, user settings for each driver, remote start, leather interior, and all kinds of things. I highly recommend this truck.. I love it!




Good suv

Vehicle: 2002 GMC Envoy XL SLT 4WD 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)

Great vehicle with great leg room in 3rd seat. The 4wd sometimes comes on with the switch in 2wd and they have replaced the switch once already. Has been very dependable with adequate power, nice luxury, and good handling. I will definately look to buy another GMC before anything else, including imports.




Take a page from toyota

Vehicle: 2002 GMC Envoy XL SLT 4WD 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)

We purchased this vehicle in Aug of 2002. Mostly for the 3rd seat. Has been in shop countless times in 4.5 years, all kinds of electronic failures, connecting link replacements front and rear new AC compressor, window motors 4WD lights doing what ever it wants. The dual memory feature has been a joke! The passenger mirror is in a new position everytime you turn the key! The dealership as normal is less than helpful. Will definitely trade for a European or Asian AWD vehicle and never look back. Nice Job GM, you lost another one!!
