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


Review

This vehicle is excellent in winter - it's a good solid vehicle and very dependable as well as comfortable. I always had a problem with the view - some very big blind spots, which are to be expected with a bigger vehicle but, they also existed when looking for traffic when crossing a road. I'd look one second and not see anything and look again and a car would be whizzing by me. Maybe it's just the way I sat in the car but, it was also the thickness and tilt of the window as well as the oversized mirror with the Not Used OnStar stuff - a smaller rear view mirror was not an option at the time of purchase. I liked the vehicle but never got over the view


Favorite Features

Comfort and sturdiness - good heavy vehicle for bad weather driving - handled like a dream.


Suggested Improvements

View - slant of the windshield - never really sat well with me. And, have the oversized mirror an option - I hated the extra size that obstructed my view.

Review

Great package as far as room, style, and garageability. Ride is very smooth and fine steering for a big package. Radio is great. BUT...this rig has more mileage going up on a service lift than on the road. Everything electronic keeps going wrong. 4WD system breakdowns, twice towed, lights and switches working as if possessed. The dealer acts as if we are crazy. When a modulator(?) broke, he actually said that if we brought the car back to the dealership for regular oil service, they can continually update the computer. Whaaaa? Mr Goodwrench is a fraud. Looks are deceiving. Avoid this car.


Suggested Improvements

Let the Japanese build this car. The idea is great. However, quality was never considered upon conception.

Review

Plenty of Power & good looks, But in the shop for 2 recalls. We have 36000 on the car. The following has gone wrong. Power passenger Mirror broke. Power driver seat broke, Both rear door latches,rolls backwards when on an incline. engine shudders when in Idle,replced front stabilizer links,door panels needed to be reglued together,roof rack luggage strips had to be replaced, Dealer fixed all but what a pain to keep bringing it back in to them. Many a time they would say can not duplicate problem even when it had been in there twice for the same thing


Favorite Features

270 hp engine, plenty of comfort


Suggested Improvements

Review

Quiet as a church mouse. Heated seats are great. Great mileage for a full size rig. Don't like fold-down design of backseats - they interfere with moving front seats back. Cup holders awkward. Great power. Great looks. Comfortable front and rear. Don't like automatic temperature control much. Dual temperature controls are great.


Favorite Features

Quietness of the vehicle with regard to road noise. Great power with economical engine.


Suggested Improvements

Modify the interior design features, i.e., cupholders and rear seat fold down blocks moving the front seats back.
