Review of the 2005 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 and Dodge Durango before making a decision.

2005 envoy xl

Vehicle: 2005 GMC Envoy XL SLT 4WD 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)

Here is something funny! I have a problem with the fuel sending unit. I get it fixed under warranty. I have another problem with fuel sending unit. (Funny right) I have to fix it by myself because it is out of warranty. I have a third problem with fuel sending unit.(Not Funny) I call GM and complain. I write numerous emails. Nothing. I call the dealer to get an answer. Nothing again! They go out of business because of GM closing down dealers.(Great) I get a letter in the mail from another dealership saying they know there is a serious problem with the fuel sending unit and they are willing to pay for half, yes half of their crap sending units! Toyota or Nissan here I come!

Love my envoy

Vehicle: 2005 GMC Envoy XL SLE 4WD 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)

Bought my Envoy brand new in 2005. Was my first car that had EVERYTHING I wanted on it. Absolutely love sunroof and satellite radio. Car has been very dependable. I've only had to replace belt and do routine maintenance. Very comfortable inside - especially on a 13 hr ride on vacation! Would definitely recommend this car! Lots of room for luggage and carrying capacity.




Comfy ride
