Used 2005 GMC Envoy XL Consumer Reviews
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.
The in-line 6 cylinder has good pickup with its 275 horsepower. We went on a trip the week we bought our Envoy, so I filled the 25 gal. tank and hit the road. To be as big as the XL model is, it did great on gas. We drove from Columbus GA. to Chattanooga Tenn. and back to Atlanta before we had to get gas. That's about 450 miles or more driving on the highway and around downtown in traffic.
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!
I had my Envoy XL for four days when a drunk lady rear-ended me. I was stopped at a red light. She hit me going about 35mph. My baby boy was in the back seat. The seatbelt his carseat was in stayed tight. We were both safe. And like the lady on the freeway I only needed a new rear bumper. Although greatful for the safety of my son and myself, my feelings were sure hurt. Thank you GMC for your safe cars.
