I've had this Envoy, SLT-XL V6 since new in 8/2002, 6.5 yrs. with 115K miles. It has been great except for modulator for A/C replaced at 4yrs. Everything works fine, ride is great, carries 7 avg. sized men with room for a large cooler. Great gas mileage, 24+ highway and 17+ around town. On occasion will shift from 2wd to AWD for no reason. Mechanic has looked at twice. This has actually been in the shop less than my friend's 2002 Acura TL. I have back problems and the driver's seat is the best around for the electric adjustable lumbar support. Overall very pleased with this vehicle.

Another great GM vehicle

I bought this Envoy XL new and love it. It has hauled trailers, doors, 2X4s, furniture and many other things including 7 passengers. This vehicle has only been back to the dealer twice and once was for a beauty item that I didn't like the looks. Sadly, it is time for a new vehicle (every 7 years as the GM credit card dollars start to expire)and I do not like the replacement Acadia due to the back glass not opening.

I purchased my 2002 GMC Envoy 4 years ago with 43k miles on it. The only maintainance I have done is change the oil, brakes, and tires. Sometimes I will wash it. This has been the most reliable SUV I have ever owned. How do other people drive and maintain? Easy on the gas and this SUV will take care of you. I currently have 188,468 miles on it and still runs as smooth as butter. It is a 2002. 8 years later and still runs like new. Time to buy a new and pass this to my daughter.

I love my Envoy

Great vehicle with great leg room in 3rd seat. The 4wd sometimes comes on with the switch in 2wd and they have replaced the switch once already. Has been very dependable with adequate power, nice luxury, and good handling. I will definately look to buy another GMC before anything else, including imports.

We purchased this vehicle in Aug of 2002. Mostly for the 3rd seat. Has been in shop countless times in 4.5 years, all kinds of electronic failures, connecting link replacements front and rear new AC compressor, window motors 4WD lights doing what ever it wants. The dual memory feature has been a joke! The passenger mirror is in a new position everytime you turn the key! The dealership as normal is less than helpful. Will definitely trade for a European or Asian AWD vehicle and never look back. Nice Job GM, you lost another one!!

All the reviews you've read about reliability problems ARE TRUE. Thank God I bought the extended warranty. The dealerships have absolutely no committment to the product and service is horrible. Sadly, this seems to be the trend with all American made cars. I will never buy GM or Chrysler again (300M was a bigger nightmare) and I haven't been brave enough to venture Ford. Toyota (Lexus) or Honda (Acura) will be my next vehicles for a long time to come.

Good Truck, but has problems

My family got this truck about three years ago and for the first year and a half the truck was wonderful with no problems. Soon after that, we started having many problems. The brake lights go out all the time because of the wires or something. That problem was on going for about a year, I know they recalled it. Know problems under the hood are starting to surface and the things that are not working are very expensive. The car overall is good for that first year but after that it might be a good idea to trade it in, but is a great vehicle other than the problems. Overall this is not a truck you would buy if you were planning to keep it and then give it to your kids. I was expecting to at least get five years out of it.

Bought my Envoy XL in Aug. of 2002 and it has been in the shop 9-times. Had the A/C compressor replaced twice, power steering pump once, rear shock replaced, On-Star system repaired, cracked fuel tack replace at 5k miles. I am very unhappy with GMC and this truck. I went from a 4Runner and will never buy a GMC again! Marketing is a wonderful thing, if your are close to the truth, professional grade?

This vehicle is excellent in winter - it's a good solid vehicle and very dependable as well as comfortable. I always had a problem with the view - some very big blind spots, which are to be expected with a bigger vehicle but, they also existed when looking for traffic when crossing a road. I'd look one second and not see anything and look again and a car would be whizzing by me. Maybe it's just the way I sat in the car but, it was also the thickness and tilt of the window as well as the oversized mirror with the Not Used OnStar stuff - a smaller rear view mirror was not an option at the time of purchase. I liked the vehicle but never got over the view

Great package as far as room, style, and garageability. Ride is very smooth and fine steering for a big package. Radio is great. BUT...this rig has more mileage going up on a service lift than on the road. Everything electronic keeps going wrong. 4WD system breakdowns, twice towed, lights and switches working as if possessed. The dealer acts as if we are crazy. When a modulator(?) broke, he actually said that if we brought the car back to the dealership for regular oil service, they can continually update the computer. Whaaaa? Mr Goodwrench is a fraud. Looks are deceiving. Avoid this car.

Power driver seat broke, Both rear door latches,rolls backwards when on an incline. engine shudders when in Idle,replced front stabilizer links,door panels needed to be reglued together,roof rack luggage strips had to be replaced, Dealer fixed all but what a pain to keep bringing it back in to them. Many a time they would say can not duplicate problem even when it had been in there twice for the same thing

Quiet as a church mouse. Heated seats are great. Great mileage for a full size rig. Don't like fold-down design of backseats - they interfere with moving front seats back. Cup holders awkward. Great power. Great looks. Comfortable front and rear. Don't like automatic temperature control much. Dual temperature controls are great.

My Envoy has been in the shop 8 times the first year...no a/c; 4 whhel drive that stopped working; two recalls; running boards falling off; possessed wipers that do what they want when they want; a speedometer that says I'm driving 100 mph in my neighborhood. Absolutely ridiculous stuff for a brand new car. And the service tech said all I have to do when the a/c goes out is take out the fuse, wait 5 minutes and reinsert it!!! If that isn't adding insult to injury, I don't know what is!

We brought the Envoy XL for the smooth ride and 7 seating capability. Initial quality was a disappointment - required front differential kit, audio tuner, and mirror auto-dimming repairs before 10K miles. Since then the mirror auto-dimming has ovurred again but no other problems. Not sure if I would buy one again - dealer has been moderately helpful but was a real pain on the differential problem.

If I were you, I would stay clear of buying a 2002 Envoy. So far we have had this thing in the shop 5 times since we purchased it. It's been recall after recall and we have had to have this thing towed to the dealership 2 times because of re-occuring problems with the vehicle not being able to start or turnover at all. Haydocy's service department has been very slow and non responsive. They offer absolutely no restitution at all !!!

I resent so much buying one it's unbelievable. Within a year the car has been in the service department 7 times; wipers stopped working, a/c broke twice and still having problems with it, car turned off by itself a few times, rear noise (transmission or differential joints were replaced), fan clutch replaced; wind noise is terrible in this vehicle, cracking noise on the steering front end (twice has been taken to the dealer for this problem) and a few other items I can't remember now. It is a nice looking vehicle but quality wise sucks!! GM could have done a better job.

We purchased our Envoy XL SLT approximately 2 months ago after much research into 7-passenger SUVs. Although we love the comfort, styling, and features of this vehicle, we have been very disappointed in its reliability. We have had it in for service 4 times in two months. The problems have involved the fuel line and fuel system (2 separate repairs), the solenoid, and the wiper mechanism (replaced wiper module after wipers and windshield wash squirters would not turn off). Needless to say, at this price and with a brand-new vehicle, we have been more than disappointed.

I researched many SUV's that would handle 7 passengers and the Envoy XL was the best I came up with considering price, options & cargo area. Upgraded to the SLT and wanted the DVD but by the time I bought it, I had to get the moon roof instead and had them install the DVD (3 kids). Owned 1 month. Rides like a Caddilac. This is my first experience with trucks and I was plesantly surprised.

I waited until GMC came out with the XL edition for the third seat capacity; however, the biggest advantage is the smoother ride that the additional wheel base offers. Exterior detail is easy on the eye and makes the truck look bigger than it is.

After wanting to move out of minivan land and into an SUV I chose the Envoy XL. As soon as I test drove it I knew this vehicle was for me. Mistake number one. Although I love the ride, comfort and convenience it offers the GMC professional grade claim doesn't hold ture. My Envoy XL has been plagued by trouble as soon as I wrote the check and tried to drive it off the lot. Trusting they would repair it and make it right was mistake number two. Electrical problems, air conditioning failure,twice,squeeking, what next?

My wife and I recently bought our Envoy XL SLE with the 1SJ package. I must tell all of you that this is by far and away the best SUV that I have ever bought or owned. We also tested the Chevrolet Trailblazer EXT, but it did not compare as far as ride, options for the price, and it did not seem as well built. The 1SJ package is basically all the works to include the DVD player for the kids. Well worth the money, especially if you have multiple children. Plenty of room and a dream to drive. Would not consider any other SUV for the price, room, options, or ride. Simply put, the best SUV for the price!!!

GMC finally has a midsize SUV with all the right ingredients. The Envoy XL is an attractive and comfortable SUV that delivers in smoothness and fuel economy. The ability to carry 7 adults is a big plus. Unfortunately, GMC's spotty reliability keeps me from recommending this vehicle to anyone. We have had vehicle for three months and it has been in for service 5 times. First, alignment was out, shortly afterwards the vehicle developed a vibration at around 70 mph, two weeks later the AC quit working and just recently the rear end started making a humming sound and will need to be replaced. Get an Acura MDX or Toyota Sequoia instead.

Purchased XL in late June and drove on 400 mile trip one week later. The Envoy was a pleasure to drive. It is very comfortable, rides extremely smooth and quiet, gets good mileage for its size ant the DVD is a cool extra. My wife drives it daily and loves it. Only problem so far is water leaked into left rear tailight assembly. Would highly reccomend the XL.

Once I got used to driving a much bigger car than the old Jimmy, I couldn't think of any other car to drive! My wife and I are now fighting over it, and the kids want to just sit inside and watch DVD's. So far, not one flaw and seems to get about 22 mpg on the fwy. GMC seems to have a winner. My only comlaint is that they added a new incentive AFTER I bought the car!

This has changed my entire outlook on SUV's! Previously i had a '97 Chevy Tahoe LT and i always felt that it was too big. The XL is the same size, but the way they designed it made it feel much smaller. I've gotten it with nearly as many features as my husband's LOADED Cadillac DTS, and it drives almost as smoothly. Its sold at a great price too, several thousand less than most comparable SUV's. This is a great car and I love it.

Terrific so far!

I just bought an Envoy XL with 1SK last week, much to the horror of my import- loving friends and family. So far, I can't find any faults with it. Very powerful engine - accelerates smoothly, handles and drives like a car, with the capacity and towing capability of a true SUV. The only thing better in the Acura MDX is the navigation capability. The Honda Pilot will be similar but lower priced (before greedy dealers start marking up over MSRP). The Toyota Sequoia is a little more spacious but to get it similarly equipped will cost almost $8K more, and you lose about 4 MPG. Other 7-seater SUVs: Ford Explorer and Dodge Durango - their designs seem dated in comparison to the Envoy.

A bute!

This vehicle is sooooo nice. Just about every feature you can think of is laid out in a consistant, sophisticated manner. I am very tall and the XL has great headroom. With the regular Envoy, my sightline had me looking into the bottom part of the visor. The XL is taller, even with the Sunroof. The back seats are incredibly easy to get things in and out of. The 3rd row has more room that most Standard SUV's 1st row. Very excited to have this loaded XL. Have the Black SLT with moon roof, chrome wheels, and Dealer installed DVD. Pleasantly Surprised that I average about 15mpg. Thought it would be more like 12.

For a sport utility, the Envoy XL rides like a luxury sedan, and has all the comfort of some of the best luxury vehicles. It is easy to drive and rarely ever feel a bump in the road. My wife insists that her back feels better after riding in the Envoy. I originally intended on getting the Yukon, but after driving the Yukon it felt more like a truck and did not have the comfort of the Envoy. In addition, I do city driving and the Yukon is much wider than the Envoy, but the Envoy with a third row seat gives you the same seating without the bulky size. Overall, an EXCELLENT sport utility.

Envoy XL SLT w/4WD and all options except DVD and chrome wheels. Ride is exceptionally smooth and the handling is good, if not X5 caliber; the 270 HP V-6 pulls strong and steady without hesitation. Only complaint is an occassional squeak on rough roads...not sure if it is from a seat or the chassis. Otherwise, the vehicle has exceeded expectations except fuel economy. Rated 15 City and 20 Hwy, but so far getting 13/19. Expect that will improve with break-in (only 600 miles). Considered the Acura MDX, Sequoia and Mountaineer. At this point, I'm happy with my choice and the value for the price paid. I still worry about eventual resale value.

Not all its cracked up to be

I enjoyed my Envoy SLT for a while and then the heated seats went out, then it was the power mirrors, then it was the windshield wipers. Sorry to say that for the commercials on TV this is far from professional grade. I plan on trading mine in as soon as I find something other than a GMC to turn my head. Hope everyone elses is ok I believe there are too many bugs in mine.

I LOVE IT!

I recently went on vacation and all that was available was a Chevy blazer, UGH. You forget how good you have it! Seating is so comfortable, truly drives and handles like a cadillac. I have found NOTHING I would change!

WOW !!!

We purchased the Envoy XL with the 1SJ package. The ride in the Envoy XL is incredible. Bumps, train tracks are non existant. I am more than pleased with the comfort of all the seats. My kids love the DVD player. Callers on the cell phone have to ask if I'm driving because they don't hear any road noise. I'd tested the Explorer, Durango, Trailblazer and Highlander they don't compare to the XL. The best feature according to my wife is that it still fits in the garage. After all the research and time spent testing I know that we made the best choice.

Excellent SUV, Drives Like A Lexus !
