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


Review

Have sunk at least 15k into this vehicle for repairs starting from the fog lamps, the interior, and almost everything to the back windshield wiper. Have owned dozens of vehicles in my lifetime. I wouldn't sell this POS to my worst enemy

2005 GMC Envoy XL Denali 4WD 4dr SUV (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Poor MPG (17.5) , but it is a V8 and will fly when needed to go around another. Although it has a class3 hitch I have never towed any thing so I don't know how it performs when towing. I now have just over 50K miles and everything works. I did have to replace the battery in the key fob, it only lasted 13 years lol .

Review

Here is something funny! I have a problem with the fuel sending unit.
I get it fixed under warranty.
I have another problem with fuel sending unit. (Funny right)
I have to fix it by myself because it is out of warranty.
I have a third problem with fuel sending unit.(Not Funny)
I call GM and complain.
I write numerous emails. Nothing.
I call the dealer to get an answer. Nothing again!
They go out of business because of GM closing down dealers.(Great)
I get a letter in the mail from another dealership saying they know there is a serious problem with the fuel sending unit and they are willing to pay for half, yes half of their crap sending units!
Toyota or Nissan here I come!


Best Features

Room......


Worst Features

Fuel Sending Units, Rear Heat (Everything to do with it and how it doesn't ever work), Oil Pressure Sensor, Customer Service!

Review

Bought my Envoy brand new in 2005. Was my first car that had EVERYTHING I wanted on it. Absolutely love sunroof and satellite radio. Car has been very dependable. I've only had to replace belt and do routine maintenance. Very comfortable inside - especially on a 13 hr ride on vacation! Would definitely recommend this car! Lots of room for luggage and carrying capacity.


Best Features

Sunroof, Satellite radio. Interior room. 3rd seat


Worst Features

rear camera as the back of the car is sometimes difficult to see
