94000 miles of no repairs

Vehicle2004 GMC Envoy SLT Rwd 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)
ReviewBought it new, 94k+ miles and no repairs 1st set of brakes @ 60K, 1 battery, 2 trans flushes. It's seen the dealer once for a small recall item and headlight bulb replacement. This vehicle has a dual personality. The body is a rugged truck-like body on frame design but the in-line 6 is more like a BMW engine. It's smooth and docile until you punch it. Once it downshifts all hell (and the 290 hp)breaks loose. Unlike most SUV engines its torque peaks @ 4700 rpm and it loves to rev. All and all its been a great vehicle.
Best FeaturesVery tight turning radius. Great for cramped parking lots. On the highway you ride high but its very stable in cross winds.
Worst Features5th gear and/or more low end torque. Better gas mileage. But since 2009 is it's last year it is what it is.
