I always want a Envoy and finally got it it runs good but a couple small problems the radio doesn't work to good the hatch to the rare window I'd broken causes the window to not open ..and there's this annoying noise underneath the vehicle the man said it was the spare tire under the car but it's been removed and the noise is still there with another noise added to the one I first heard I wonder what could it be but other than all that the suv is beautiful
After reading others' reviews of the Envoy, I have a few comments. For people complaining of "knocking underneath, rough shifting" get your front suspension checked (tie rods/hubs...) I'm 20, make $10 an hour, These are NOT EXPENSIVE TO FIX (Cheapo's, come one, seriously, though.) Not only is this truck WAY better looking than any 4Runner, Explorer, Whatever; but it has THE SMOOTHEST ride quality out of any Comparable SUV I have ever Ridden in (I've ridden in a ton of SUVs). My Envoy has 170,000 miles and I have yet to experience a smoother riding vehicle. If you go to a reliable service center, you will realize this is one of the best late model trucks on the road today.
Gear Ratio, Smooth Running Engine (Inline 6), Leather seats, BOSE STEREO!!!, Exterior (And Interior Looks), Way you feel when driving it (I had an LR3 once upon a time, no comparison -- especially when considering cost-to-own), Commanding view, Bells & Whistles, Looks from other drivers (Mine is fully loaded, Black, SLT -- Super attractive), SUSPENSION/EXTERIOR BUILD QUALITY (Stupidly Hit Front and Rear Driver side on a Median going 45-50 mph and ONLY threw out alignment!!!! -- Not a THING was bent/ broken!), 4x4 System (Will not ever get you stuck)
Only 1 --> Improve Door Panel build quality (Bose System Vibrates certain sections of front interior door panels -- Although, do consider the fact that the Front BOSE Speakers are actually Woofers -- so amazing -- unlike most other comparable trucks)
I have had this envoy since April 4, 2004 it has 172,000 miles on it, been across the states east to west and north to South. Had an emission sensor problem when it was new, a computer problem about 3 years cost approx $2400.00, just tried to have it smogged in Calif and it has a bad valve in the 3 hole and a bad left front bearing. All in all it has been a good vehicle and I believe we have gotten our moneys worth would buy another if I ever get rid of this one.
comfortable to drive
Seat belt placement pulls down on shoulder and can be uncomfortable.
