I am the second owner of my 2002 Envoy.
Bought it in 2006 with 52k miles.
It presently has 110k and had never once needed repairs.
I've had to replace the battery and tires, but those are expected repairs.
Yesterday, I took it in for the 90k service and also requested a complete check of all parts, engine and otherwise.
The original rotors and brake pads were due for replacement - but, I was told they could last another 2,000 miles.
The serpentine belt had minor cracks, and was told it would last a few thousand more miles.
Needless to say, I replaced all that was found after looking at the old parts myself.
After 110k there have been no major mechanical problems. Very impressed.

I have a 2002 Envoy SLT beautiful with all the bells and whistles. I have had nothing but problems since I purchased the truck in 2004 with 30k miles. It has been at the dealership 18 times in the last 3 years. I am finally getting it fixed for the last time to trade it off. So many problems too many to mention. It has been a money pit for me.

We bought our Envoy when I was expecting our 2nd child. I am so thankful we did. In December of this past year we were in an accident. My Envoy was totaled but we all survived. My 4 year old had to have 3 stitches above his eye and my 7 year old walked away without a scratch. I had internal bruising from the airbag. We hit at 50MPH. It was a front impact then the other car spun around hitting my 4 year old directly in his door. This vehicle crumbled, but the inside structure stayed perfectly intact. Only 1 door would open. It was a bad wreck. We knew we wanted another vehicle like this and searched until we decided on an 06 Trailblazer EXT. I pray it's as good as the Envoy.
Long overdue for a redesign, GMC's all-new Envoy finally gets the goods to compete in the highly competitive midsize SUV segment. An all-aluminum inline six-cylinder engine replaces the aging 4.3-liter V6, and a revised suspension dramatically improves the ride. Unlike the 2000 Envoy that was virtually indistinguishable from its Chevrolet and Oldsmobile siblings, the 2002 model now sports a new look that is unique to the GMC brand.
