Used 2004 GMC Envoy XUV Consumer Reviews
GMC has a known instrument cluster problem whereas all gauges stop working, the speedometer does not register correctly, but GM will not perform a recall even though it is a factory defect. $500 to $1000 to fix the problem out of the consumers pocket. GM should be ashamed of themselves! Never again!
We were going to buy a Nissan Murano but after test driving the XUV we went with it. The best thing about this vehicle is the retractable roof and it offers a SMOOTH ride, something we didn't expect. This vehicle compared to the Murano wins hands down. The price is pretty reasonable for this vehicle. The blind spots is what keeps this vehicle from being perfect. Its very hard to see out the back and even harder to see small cars but even with this flaw its still a great vehicle.
This vehicle rides like a luxury car but hauls better than a pickup, with the ability to haul an enclosed load or an open, tall load...true versatility. The durability of the rear bumper cover is questionable, and useful life of all the motors/switches used to power the retractable roof and cargo-area windows is yet to be determined. Only time will tell, but if the watertightness of the roof seals and the overall quietness of the passenger cabin are any indications, GMC has delivered a real winner! If your kids are grown and you don't need to haul the entire soccer team to practice and a five- passenger capability is sufficient, then this SUV is for you!
The XUV is great. It hauls all my DJ equioment perfectly. Plus, everything is sealed off from the weather & secure.
I owned a 2005 with all the bells and whistles and loved it. My son totaled it and walked away without a scratch on him. I was only able to find a 2004 to replace it that had some of the options I wanted. Would not have been satisfied with another truck style. Everything else I even remotely liked was over $50,000. One terriffic truck to own and drive. By the way the 2004 has a V8 that gets better milage then the six in the 2005.
