2008 GMC Envoy Denali 4dr SUV 4WD (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Hwy mpg is OK but city mpg is very poor. The seat belt cuts into my neck and needs to be repositioned. Denali exterior is an eye turner but the plastic "woodgrain" console looks cheap and tacky. Seats are comfortable but would prefer a softer leather. When I'm stopped for a light, after 10+ seconds there's a thud-like jolt & sound from under the car. Dealer has no idea what is causing this but has heard others complain about it.

Best Features

Exterior Denali styling is terrific. Smooth ride, great turning radius, easy to drive, on-board compressor, integrated hitch, running boards.

Worst Features

#1 - Need better city mileage!! Seat belts that don't give me a neck rash, integrated holder for cell phone, pull out door pockets or better designed console that can hold a small handbag, rear seats should fold flat like they did in my old Blazer (loved that feature & fold down gate in the Blazer)
