Aw shucks, 98,000 miles, and I had to put brake pads on it.
Other than oil changes and one set of tires, that is is for maintenance.
Still like the car as new, and a pickup truck it is indeed.
Tows 27' boats, hauls plywood, and 12 foot planks, Yanmar diesels, you name it.
And it still looks terrific.

I have owned this vehicle for 6 years now,
use it to tow skidoos in the winter,
hauled just about everything in the back,
drywall, garden supplies, wood,
an oven etc.
It now has 160,000 km on it and has suffered what I would consider less than average issues.
Common problems for all Envoy models are the front bearings, instrument cluster and the inline 6 has a fairly light duty exhaust manifold which in my case cracked.
The good news is the parts are easy to buy aftermarket replacements and I replaced the bearings myself.
I found a guy who replaced all the faulty motors in the cluster too for 200$ cash and the exhaust manifold was 1000 dollar fix.
Not bad for 9 years +

I bought this vehicle new (very expensive). I have replaced over $1000 in rear door latches, obviously a defect,they only warrant 1 yr or 20K km, what does km have to do with a latch. GM head office doesn't like to return phone calls..
I finally spoke to her again & their decision was "your on your own".
I have replaced the transfer case 1 1/2 yrs ago, now I have to replace the motor in it.Stranded again when gear shifter broke (it's plastic) go figure. No speadometer for over a year now (called cluster) would cost over $1000, neither heated seats work. My list goes on. I take care of my vehicles but this is ridiculous. GM does NOT stand behind their products. I will NEVER own another one.
The Envoy XUV is an all-new model based on the Envoy XL sport-utility with the third-row seating area turned into a reconfigurable cargo hold a la Chevy Avalanche. But the XUV goes one better by offering a power-sliding rear roof section in addition to its fold-down midgate and all-weather cargo area.
