2005 GMC Envoy SLE 4WD 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Bought this Envoy used at 48K miles. So 10K miles later no complaints. Easier to drive than most other SUV's. Good acceleration, however don't expect a lot of MPG if you tend to speed. Though looking at these other reviews I get about 19mpg on this with normal driving.


Favorite Features

Good acceleration, OnStar, flip down rear seats.


Suggested Improvements

Better MPG.

2005 GMC Envoy SLE Rwd 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

After year 3 an oil pressure sensor went out, idling issue, not sure why. Dealer could never tell me why either. Since there is no fuel filter, i am wondering if there could have been something restricting the fuel flow!!!. Year 4, tensioner pulley bearing went out, Year 4.5 traded the Envoy in for a Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. Probably never buy this model again, it was transportation and cheap. Sticker was $29,500, after discounts and rebates i paid $19,500. it was a good price on a SUV to haul my kids around.


Suggested Improvements

GM needs to go buy a Ford SUV and sit in their seats (very comfortable).

2005 GMC Envoy SLT 4WD 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Good Looking SUV. Poor mileage, poor fit and finish. Seat belt not adjustable, high tension. Noisy ride due to air leaks. Transmission shifts from 2WD or AWD into 4WD on its own. Seats are not as comfortable as in my 2003 Envoy.


Favorite Features

No longer a favorite.


Suggested Improvements

Build as advertised. Professional quality.

Review

BEING A LONG TIME OWNER OF SUV'S I find my new envoy to be the worst one yet. The front bumper cover doesn't sit straight,back to dealer 4 times in less than a month for that. It rattles and makes all kind of strange noises. It is really underpowered with that 4200 6 cyl. that feels like a 4 cylinder under my foot. It is being serviced more than it is in my garage ! all this trouble and only driven it 275 miles and owned it less than a month. I am VERY disappointed with it and my selling dealer will do nothing about it !!

2005 GMC Envoy SLT 4WD 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Overall, a pretty good SUV. The cabin is comfortable. Although not super quiet inside. The front seat sits a little high and the back does not tilt. The pickup on the road is decent but underpowered at times of steep incline. I definitely believe there should be a V8, but there is not. The gas mileage for the daily traffic is horrible in town. Usually 12-14 at best. Highway, impressively up to 22 at times. The Envoys center of gravity is righ at the armrest, which makes for good turning. Last but not least, not very good use of space for seating.


Favorite Features

The favorites would include the seats are very comfortable. And the quick turn 4x4 modes.


Suggested Improvements

The doors on the back are a little light, and do not close all the way without slamming the door. Additionally, the truck needs some more power. The gas mileage already reveals V8 mileage but 4 cylinder power at times.
