Review

My Envoy just burned up -- fuel leak. Previously had transmission problem (went dry), but it was covered out-of- warranty because the dealer had just serviced it, and they probably didn't fill it right or left the plug loose. Right headlight went out 3 years ago. Two part light, $375 per part but not sold seperately. Got a junk yard (only one of two in the country at the time) for $500 plus an hour of labor. GM did not help, dealer or corporate. When burned, the left headlight was out, not available in junkyards at the time. I also lost the third brakelight, costing ~$500 and not properly repaired.


Favorite Features

Trailer hitch


Suggested Improvements

Fire the engineer who designs expensive lighting system that are incompatable with GMC Jimmys and Chevy Blazers, which are changed for the subsequent year, without adequate supplies, no aftermarket solution, no corp help. Maybe he's now the CEO or in charge of employee benefits and pensions.

Review

A great SUV for family trips. Night time visibility is superb with the high intesity headlamps. I love the interior and Bose sound system! It plows through the snow in 4 wheel drive with no problems. Gas mileage is around 15 in the city and 20-22 on the highway. No mechanical problems so far with 78,000 on the odometer.


Favorite Features

Bose sound system, adjustable rear air ride suspension, heated seats

Review

Was very disappointed to find it takes $700.00 to replace a headlight, you MUST replace bulb, ballast, everything. Interior molding is very cheap for this vehicle, held on with velcro, and it doesn't do a good job at all. Several pieces off, and won't stay on before 30,000 miles. Passenger seat adjuster broke right off on letting the seat back, thank goodness it was in the upright position already. Everything I've replace on this vehicle has been high dollar. Nice, pretty, but not well designed. No wonder they didn't make this style very long.


Suggested Improvements

don't sell any more of this style.

Review

This Envoy has been one very nice vehicle. Very versatile, nice lines, high intensity headlamps are awesome! The vehicle is loaded with many fine features. Programmable buttons for the garage door and security gate are a nice extra. All leather interior is standard and there are lots of plugins for all sorts of gadgets (cell phone charger, fuzz buster, etc), air compressor in the rear is also very convenient. I would definitely buy another!! This vehicle comes equipped with every feature imaginable and that's standard!


Favorite Features

The high intensity headlamps and the heated seats, Bose sound system is very nice. Good all purpose vehicle! Looks good when driving to the office yet very reliable and dependable when heading to the horse farm. Fun for towing and 4-wheeling too!


Suggested Improvements

Improve the idler arm. Shouldn't have to replace 2 times within the first 50k miles. Other than the idler arm, I have no complaints, only praise!
