When buying one or the Blazer Trannys & Ball Joints can be an issue around the 160k mark on the 4x4 models. Other then that pretty much good oil changes and turn key. When I get around the 300k mile mark I usually give them to my bro and he puts another 100k.
I got my envoy back in 2006 for a good price of 4,790 with 119,000 miles on it. Its been very great and only had one problem with the audio controls which is getting fixed next month. The style is ok its kind of old S10 look. But the interior is amazing. Comfortable seats and wood and chrome trim makes it look nice. The ride is amazing except off-road it rock just a little. Gas mileage could a little better as well.Overall Its been a great vehicle to us.
Mostly Problem Free
Car like ride
Gas Mileage could be better
Needs Better styling exterior
Wish Had more Value
We found an Envoy that had been traded back to the dealer because it was too small for the original owner. They bought a Suburban. It had only 6500 miles on it. We scored. We love it, using it mainly for skiing. It has been a real find.
The ride package in the Envoy is fantastic. It does not have the "truck" ride that most SUVs seem to have.
Can't think of any. We love it and will drive it until it dies.
The 2000 GMC Envoy has good quality throughout and a very comfortable ride. It drives more like a car than a truck. I have not had any reliability issues in the five years and over 100,000 miles that I haev owned it.
The Bose sound system, sun roof, and onboard air compressor (you can't begin to imagine how handy it can be until you have one).
Improve the gas mileage. I am currently only getting 17 mpg in town and 20-21on the highway.
Beautiful interior /exterior, all the
little extra's on this model made it
seem almost too good to be true.
Unfortunately performance hasn't been
that great. When I bought the vehicle
I thought it only needed a front end
alignment and was given $30 by
dealership to fix, I bought it out of
state). I found later it really needed
upper & lower ball joints, idler arm
and front end alignment (cost over
$1000). After having it under 5 weeks
the transmission went out... very
disappointing. Doors also should lock
when in motion, but don't. Temperature
control needs improvement - doesn't
seem to reach temperature setting
Power moonroof, audio controls on
steering wheel & heated leather seats -
it gets pretty cold in Michigan.
Temperature control - poor in
regulating heat to the temperature you
want it at. Mechanically poor - or at
least mine is. Doors should lock after
inital takeoff but don't. Gas mileage
