Used 2002 GMC Envoy XL SUV Consumer Reviews
I purchased my 2002 GMC Envoy 4 years ago with 43k miles on it. The only maintainance I have done is change the oil, brakes, and tires. Sometimes I will wash it. This has been the most reliable SUV I have ever owned. How do other people drive and maintain? Easy on the gas and this SUV will take care of you. I currently have 188,468 miles on it and still runs as smooth as butter. It is a 2002. 8 years later and still runs like new. Time to buy a new and pass this to my daughter.
I enjoyed my Envoy SLT for a while and then the heated seats went out, then it was the power mirrors, then it was the windshield wipers. Sorry to say that for the commercials on TV this is far from professional grade. I plan on trading mine in as soon as I find something other than a GMC to turn my head. Hope everyone elses is ok I believe there are too many bugs in mine.
I've had this Envoy, SLT-XL V6 since new in 8/2002, 6.5 yrs. with 115K miles. It has been great except for modulator for A/C replaced at 4yrs. Everything works fine, ride is great, carries 7 avg. sized men with room for a large cooler. Great gas mileage, 24+ highway and 17+ around town. On occasion will shift from 2wd to AWD for no reason. Mechanic has looked at twice. This has actually been in the shop less than my friend's 2002 Acura TL. I have back problems and the driver's seat is the best around for the electric adjustable lumbar support. Overall very pleased with this vehicle.
I resent so much buying one it's unbelievable. Within a year the car has been in the service department 7 times; wipers stopped working, a/c broke twice and still having problems with it, car turned off by itself a few times, rear noise (transmission or differential joints were replaced), fan clutch replaced; wind noise is terrible in this vehicle, cracking noise on the steering front end (twice has been taken to the dealer for this problem) and a few other items I can't remember now. It is a nice looking vehicle but quality wise sucks!! GM could have done a better job.
After wanting to move out of minivan land and into an SUV I chose the Envoy XL. As soon as I test drove it I knew this vehicle was for me. Mistake number one. Although I love the ride, comfort and convenience it offers the GMC professional grade claim doesn't hold ture. My Envoy XL has been plagued by trouble as soon as I wrote the check and tried to drive it off the lot. Trusting they would repair it and make it right was mistake number two. Electrical problems, air conditioning failure,twice,squeeking, what next?
