SUV was purchased in Aug 2003, it presently has 203000 miles 90% percent highway driving; no serious problems in the first 3 1/2 years, in the last year, replaced air conditioning compressor; transfer case; transimission; alternator; front wheel bearings; front differential and more.
SLT/2WD has been a great option for 4 years now. Oil and tires changed/rotated every 3000 miles. 48000 now on original tires! Battery went Dixie after 38 months. Trip gas mileage has been respectable with the vehicle loaded at 22-26 MPG. All in all have been very happy with our Envoy!
The seats on this car, while attractive, are very stiff and not comfortable on long trips. The biggest problem, however, has been the noise - sounds like there is a valve "tapping". Local dealers have claimed that they don't hear the noise and that nothing is wrong. I will be stuck at time to trade/unload! Stereo has been replaced a couple of times. There were 2 recalls from the factory. Seatbelts also stick!
Very attractive SUV - OK to drive for commuting. I do feel safe in the car because of its size. Plenty of room - not too big, not too small.
Chevy/GMC should recognize valve problem and repair at their cost! New seats are suggested. Price adjustment - this ain't no Lexus!
No complaints here. I bought the SLT
because the difference in comfort and
trim level/options was far superior to
the SLE. The vehicle has many features
and options but is very intuitive.
Some of the questions asked on the
survey ask questions only appropriate
of a sports car and that is the only
reason why it did not get a 10 from
me. The Envoy is positively the first
in class having it all; comfort, style,
and performance. The gas mileage isn't
great, but is good for a truck-based
SUV. I would recommend this vehicle to
Inside comfortable, ride as an premium
car. But gas mileage 12.1 M/gallon,
Sticker says 15-21, what a lie!!! Turn
and accelarate sluggish, 4X4 can't
back up while turn! But price can't
beat. I paid $26800 brand new with
leather,sunroof,running board, side
airbag,etc. Think twice if you really
need a heavy truck like this for your
day-to-day life. Then consider
4X4 or AWD selectable by driver.

gas mileage, and please tell the
truth, I don't mind if I know it ahead
of time. Fix safety testing score,
even though I don't believe them.
