My wife and I were looking for a big
vehicle for all of our hauling and the
two children and their friends. We had
the opportunity to drive the Envoy and
fell in love. We were a little
concerned with the Six Cyl 4.2 Engine
but WOW are we impressed now. We have
never felt like more power was needed
and the fuel economy is outstanding!!
I have friends that have driven these
veh's hard and the mileage is in line
with the V8 models but I drive very
conservativiely and love the ride. You
drive this truck like you should with
precious cargo on board and you will
love the ride, power and MPG!
The ride and the Engine! The air
suspension is like nothing I have owned
before. The engine is the best! I get
25 mpg on teh highway and 18 to 20
around town! This thing is huge at 5500
lbs. Yet is rides and runs like most
trucks half its size.
I have no suggested improvements. This
truck is perfect as far as my wife and
family are concerned. Big and safe,
Great ride and powerful. What else is
The Envoy XL is an outstanding luxury
SUV with lots of room for full grown
children (6' plus) and adults.
The ride is outstanding and better than
any luxury car (mercedes, cadillac,
buick). Love the moonroof feature with
the tinted glass and being able to open
up. Superb handling in a SUV. Have had
a great experience with the car, but...
have had a "Service Engine Soon"
light. The dealership has worked on it
4 times and it keeps appearing, but the
SUV has not shown ANY degradation in
performance and handling. GM has said
this is one of only four to have this
problem. Other than the light, I have
loved driving it, and plan to continue
to or have another.
Handling, ride and seating comfort.
The noise level and the 3rd seat option
and the configuration of the a/c great.
comparable to a large SUV. Love the Red
Medallic color and cloth seating on SLE.
Like the storage tray system.
Console needs to be reconfigured
because to hold large cups. The fuel
economy on the six is OK, but probably
would be better with an eight.
my brother in law bought this car last
year and loved it. i bought one this
year and i totally love it. it drives
like a car. i just recently went away
on vacation and my family of 5 fit
comfortably with all of our luggage. i
would recommend this car to any one
its good and reliable. get it or be
sorry. there is nothing that this
thing can not do. it handles
perfectly, heats and cools without
problems and gets some of the best gas
mileage that i've seen for an SUV.
looked at Pilot, Trailblazer, Yukon,
Explorer, Durango and 4Runner. This
vehicle tops all the others. It run
perfectly and while being an american
made car hardly shows it. HERE'S TO
THE REBIRTH OF AMERICAN QUALITY CARS.
XM Radio is amazing but is available
for purchase ouside of the vehicles so
it is not exactly a determining
factor. Styling and engine power is
very good though.
If your going to get the SLE, get the
1SB package. Basic model has many
ammenities yet lacks power mirrors,
cruise control and rear defogger. Get
a security system and look into the
side airbags. ONSTAR is good but
hardly warrants the $700 price.
These are minor problems though &are
