Review of the 2005 GMC Envoy XUV

  • If you're looking to haul five people and the occasional eight-foot dresser in a midsize SUV, the Envoy XUV has the competition beat -- in fact, there really is no competition.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Strong six- or eight-cylinder power, clean interior design, reconfigurable cargo area.

  • Cons

    Spongy suspension, numb steering, some low-grade interior materials, odd exterior proportions.

  • What's New for 2005

    Seating has been restyled and boasts comfort and quality improvements this year. A touchscreen DVD-based navigation system is now available, and the SLT trim includes burled wood accents inside. A stereo system with CD/MP3 compatibility and full-length side curtain airbags (replacing last year's front-seat side airbags) are also new this year.

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

Everything electrical has gone wrong, gas gauge, speedometer, cd player, elec seat control, air conditioner dual accuator replaced both $1900, replaced thermostat and fan clutch, oh and wires were melting behind the controls of the Air Conditioner $490.00. I am the only owner and my miles are only at 55,000

Great - except...

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

After about 20,000 miles the check engine light came on then off. It does this reguarly about 1000 miles off and 100 on. By the time I get a dealer appointment it is off again. Other than that an excellent buy.




Good suv great price

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

I bought this at simpson gmc new for $19,999 (list was $32,500) so it was loss leader. Envoy XUV backend is too big, but otherwise its a great deal
