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.


Best Features

Trailer hitch


Worst Features

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.


Best 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.


Worst Features

don't sell any more of this style.
