Review of the 2004 GMC Envoy XL

  • If true seven-passenger capacity and serious cargo space are your top priorities in shopping for a midsize SUV, the Envoy XL has the competition beat. Just make sure you test-drive the well-rounded Ford Explorer before making a decision.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Strong six- or eight-cylinder power, clean interior design, plenty of passenger and cargo room.

  • Cons

    Sloppy handling around corners, numb steering, cheap interior materials, odd exterior proportions.

  • What's New for 2004

    For 2004, the Envoy XL adds several items to the options list, including XM Satellite Radio (and a new stereo to accommodate it), a DVD-based navigation system and adjustable pedals. There are a few minor equipment changes this year. In SLE models, the door trim is now vinyl instead of cloth, and lumbar adjustment for the front seats is two-way manual rather than the previous four-way feature. Additionally, there is no longer a power outlet in the cargo area. The SLT gets a slightly revised steering wheel, and vehicles equipped with the DVD entertainment system can now hear it through the vehicle's audio system in addition to the wireless headphones.

A very comfortable highway cruiser. Great family auto. Shifting is seamless and quiet and the ride is excellent. The fuel economy is a detractor but since it is not the daily driver this is not an issue. The 3rd row seating is roomy enough for full size adults. Many thoughtful amenities throughout car. If you can afford to fill it I highly recomend it.

We've had our Envoy XL SLT for 3 1/2 yrs and we are trading it off today. We love this car, and it is so comfortable and roomy, but I have been out of work now for a couple of years with health issues, and we cannot afford the high payments any longer. We were on the top when we bought it, but not any more. We held out as long as we could. Also, with the gas price craziness, we cannot afford the 16 mpg. I will be so sad when we drive off the lot and leave it there, but I will be so happy to have lower payments. My grandchildren loves this car too! To all of you that can continue to drive your Envoy XL SLT, we are happy for you.

Vehicle: 2004 GMC Envoy XL SLT Rwd 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)

I love driving my Envoy XL. It handles easily and even with the base 6 cylinder engine has more then enough horsepower for driving around the city. It has performed extremely well in trips to the coast and through the mountains. The only complaint so far has to be a terrible odor that comes from the air vents. It is extremely noticable in the summer time, and seems to be caused by mold build-up. My GM dealer has cleaned it out several times, but hasn't found the cure for it yet. Otherwise a strong and family- friendly vehicle with enough room in the 3rd row seats for my 2 boys to stretch out in and actually be comfortable.




The first/last gm vehicle i

This vehicle has some great features. I really like it. However, it has had some huge electronic issues such as the fuse module welding itself to the brain of the vehicle (almost a fire hazard), constant AC problems in both the forward and rear modules, and many other problems. Should have gone with Europe/Japan, will know next time.

We have had our Envoy for 2 years and we have had the ignition switch go out about 3 times an the front and rear air conditioning quit working about 2 times.
