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

I am a Ford girl who LOVED her Envoy

At 30,000 miles the movie player died. At 85,000 miles all gauges, power/heat for seats died. Gas mileage is horrible. I get 12 miles city and 16 highway (V6). I cant understand why their isnt a recall on the dashboard gauges, its infuriating. Has completely turned me off to all GMC products.

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.

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.

I purchased this car new and it has been nothing but problems. Every month their is some problem. The sensors are always going out. The lights has went out. Right know, another sensor has went out and know there is a crack in the gas tank. The service engine soon light stays on, for any reason. If you don't have the gas cap screwed on the right engine soon light comes on, if you leave the car running and put gas in the check engine soon light will pop on. Oh and yeah the fuel pump is going out also. I wish that I had taken out the extended warranty you will really need it. I did not think that you would considering this is suppose to be a top level vehicle. My Kia was better.

"service engine, service 4wd, change oil".......my dash looks like a lighted christmas tree and no one can find anything wrong. Door moldings falling off. Rear wiper washer broke. Knocking noise underneath. Shifts hard and clanks often. No recall for hole in gas tank or cracked gas cap compartment. Fuel mileage stinks. NEVER AGAIN. Going back to a Nissan or Toyota!

I do not know if there is a recall on the ignition.I turn the key and all gauges on the cluster go crazy.I got to turn the key to off and keep on trying until it catches then it's good to start. Also i had to replace all seals in the rear-end,some how water got in it with the other owner and around later November of 08 i started to hear a loud noise,i took it to the garage and they found i nice chunk of ice the belly of the rear-end. It cost me $1200.00 to replace all seals.I had to change both front wheel bearings and a left tie-rod at 89,000KM. I love my Envoy but they are very costly to repair..

Bought it new, 94k+ miles and no repairs 1st set of brakes @ 60K, 1 battery, 2 trans flushes. It's seen the dealer once for a small recall item and headlight bulb replacement. This vehicle has a dual personality. The body is a rugged truck-like body on frame design but the in-line 6 is more like a BMW engine. It's smooth and docile until you punch it. Once it downshifts all hell (and the 290 hp)breaks loose. Unlike most SUV engines its torque peaks @ 4700 rpm and it loves to rev. All and all its been a great vehicle.

I think Envoys are the best. I will buy another one after I get out of school. The only real problem I have ever had is that if there is a bump or crack in the road and you hit it too fast the car will feel like it is out of control and the gear shifter nut always comes loose causing the car not to move. I know when it acts up just to crawl under and tighten up the screw. The dealer wanted 200 for the part and I made my own.

Good reliable SUV overall. Works well for hauling the kids and getting groceries. Tows well, very happy with the 4 wheel drive system. Fuel mileage decent for mid sized SUV. Nice leather interior, easy to use instramentation. Only downfall is poorly fitted shell and bumper, lots of air noise at higher speeds, not very exciting to drive. It a great family car to get you from point A to B, but the trip between is predictible and boring.

I have thoroughly enjoyed this mid-size SUV, my first such vehicle. I bought it because I needed to tow a fiarly heavy boat and the Envoy with its standard In-Line 6 engine and standard towing package would tow just over 6,000 pounds, and only a few hundred pounds less than choosing the optional V-8. I've taken care of it and have driven only 10,000 miles per year, but it has rewarded me with no problems at all--not the first rattle or squeak. I beleive the style has "held up," too and even at 4.5 years it still does not look old.

I have enjoyed a lot about this car. I got it Jan of 2007 and it has been in the shop 2 or 3 times totaling about $2000. It's fun to drive and looks great but has broken down on me enough that I am now shopping for something else. The first repair was $1000 to reprogram the computer something or other. Then the battery died. The rubber around the doors has almost all fallen off, the power seat control panel just fell of the other day, and the cd player does not work. All sorts of check lights go on and off in the dash all the time and I still can't figure out how to work all the lighting! Like I said, pretty car and fun to have! And not all bad but personally not worth the monthly note!

I was leery of the I6 but it performs well at 275 hp. Gas miles are good for a vehicle of this size. If you've never had a information center option-get it, it's great. Controls mirrors, seats, lights, headlights, tilt down rear view mirror, etc. Mine has leather but it's not necessary. All in all the only problem I had was a bad temp sender for the driver/pass ac control. They fixed for no charge. Ive had a good experience with this vehicle.

Ran well for 1-1/2 years until the transmission needed a $1000 repair and the catalytic converter needed replaced. Since September '05 have replaced the catalytic converter 3 times - GM says nothing is wrong - I beg to differ. The car clunks despite changing stabilizer struts. The car rocks forward to back which is a little annoying. The 4WD service light is coming on intermittently. Gas mileage is okay until the catalytic converter goes bad then drops significantly. Enough wind noise that you can't talk to the third row of seats without yelling. The engine sounds like a diesel when it is first started and the transmission isn't very smooth, especially during acceleration.

Purchased my Envoy new late in 04. I haven't had any major problems with my SUV. The engine was running rough at 40,000 and the dealership repaired no charge. (sensor failure) Other than that it has never been in the shop and we now have almost 60,000 miles. It is very versatile and functional vehicle. I am a homeowner and going to Lowes or Home Depot I can buy almost anything and don't have to think about how I can get it home. I love the back glass opening as it makes it easy to hual my surfboard without having to put it up on racks. When I go golfing I can put transport the whole foursome with clubs and everyone is comfortable. I love my Envoy!

Love the leather and the XM radio, and the heated seats rock! So happy I went with this after looking at TrailBlazers, Equinox, Tahoes, etc.

This has been a good experience from the get go. No problems, followed GM maintenance schedule, not dealers. It is high enough that you get good visibility, comfortable ride and interior and exterior paint have held up very good. The gas mileage could be better but it gets 20mpg on a highway trip. Not great but acceptable. Around town, rural area, it gets 17-18 mpg.

Bought this vehicle as new because of the spacious interior (had third seat option) and ability to pull a boat. Luckily, I purchased and extended warranty. However, I still have a $200 deductible to pay for each repair. Thus far, I have already had to replace the radiator and water pump. The vehicle is back in the shop today for replacement of the back lift gate window hinges, and for an engine rattle. I have also had occasional problems with the "Service 4WD" coming on at random times. In addition to mechanical issues, the highway and air noise when driving is fairly annoying.

Great vehicle! Has power, comfort and safety features galore. Fuel injected v-8 can run with anybody, yet if you keep your foot out of it gets relatively good mileage. We have the SLT XL package. It's loaded with leather and all the other bells and whistles. Do yourself a favor, drive one when you get serious about looking for a quality ride.

I bought my Envoy new and I absolutely love it! I have had minor problems. Driver window sticks 2/3 of the way down and will not roll up or down. It has been in the shop 19 times and everything has been replaced but the wiring and the window. The 4wd light is starting to flash for no reason so it is going back to the shop. Other then this, I love the Envoy. The Envoy with the 3rd row seat has a much better ride the the ones without! It glides down the road just as well as a Cadillac. My husband refused to drive it because he is afraid he will fall asleep behind the wheel because it is so smooth.

We have had our Envoy for about 2.5 years. We started noticing electrical issues last summer. We noticed the lights dimming and blinking and one day completely dead, just a click. They towed it in and replaced the battery. We still had the blinking lights and eventually replaced the alternator after initially telling it was a normal condition? All OK untill this week when it was dead again. We had noticed blinking lights a couple weeks ago, also. The dealer had it 3 days and couldn't find anything wrong. I picked it up last night and in the dealer lot the lights went dim, also this morning. We love the way it rides but reliability? Dealer admitted they've had lots of problems with these.

I would love to trade this thing in but, the dealer just laughs and points at an endless line of used Envoys that they're also stuck with. Now I know why they were giving these away. My motorcycle has less wind noise, and there is always some sort of rattle. There has been a clanking sound, like something's loose under it ever since we got it and even with the numerous trips to the dealer for all the other problems they never found it. And now that it's out of warranty every time you start it the reduced power light comes on and runs rough until you shut it off for a few minutes then start it again. I advise against buying an Envoy, but if you still want one I have one for sale real cheap.

I special ordered this vehicle with specific intent to travel with it. To avoid extreme temperature changes, we ordered cloth interior with dual power seats. I have this vehicle over 2 years and have not had one thing go wrong with it, even one rattle. I average 19.5-20MPG with even a little more on long trips. The power reponse and ride is excellent for a truck. My biggest complaint is that the seats are just not comfortable at all. We tried both the leather and cloth and thought the cloth was more comfortable.

I've had this Envoy with V6 engine SLE for over 2 years. The ride is still smooth as butter. This vehicle suprisingly, still handles the bumps very well. Like if I've just purchased her yesterday. Haven't had any major problems with her. Being a home owner, I'm constantly making trips to Home Depot and I'm glad I have the Envoy. The snow is never a problem for the Envoy. The running boards are a big plus to have. Did I mentioned the power...love the power she has. I've driven other SUV's and so far, none can compare to her power.

Like the look and drive of the car. My main problem has been reliability issues. I have had the fuel injection system replaced along with issues with the air pump. Also, service four wheel drive light has come on teice and was unable to put the Envoy into 4wd. Envoy currently has 35,000 miles and I am questioning whether or not to keep it.

This is a solid, body-on-frame truck -- no jacked-up-car SUV wannabe. I also think it is one of the best looking SUVs on the market. GM went to great lengths to create a soft ride, but with the result that it compromises handling. I installed aftermarket shocks, springs and sway bar to lower it and give it the handling it should have had from the factory (see what Saab has done with its version). The engine and transmission are great, but do not work as well together as they ought to. I'm looking forward to a Hypertech or Superchips programmer. So far, however, I have had zero problems and this is a very comfortable, entertaining vehicle. My dogs love it!

I have owned my 2004 GMC Envoy for a little over a year now and I'm very pleased with it. The ride quality is great for long trips and I love the exterior styling. It's been fantastic for my many trips to Home Depot. The wide cargo opening is definitely a plus. The dual climate control is great because my wife is always cold and I'm always warm. I have brought it back to the dealer a few times for a few problems that were fixed under warranty immediately. The gas mileage could be better, but I knew about that before I bought it. Since I don't drive too much, it hasn't been a problem even with the high gas prices.

I use the SUV as a around town car and a tow vehicle for an RV. Ease of towing was pprime reason for buying but I was pleasantly surprised when I started using it all the time. Ride is nice but firm enough for good control. Seat back has lumbar support for my bad back and is great. An all around great car for what I use it for. No problems with it at all.

Stepped down from a 2002 to a 2004. Cruise unsafe going down hills. Ride has went from good to bad. Suspension not as firm as in 2002. Bose sound system is not worth the extra cost of the option package. Seems GMC is cutting corners for profit.

Great Value, Great Utility

This vehicle meets the expectation for a utility vehicle in that it serves many uses. It has the power to pull a trailer and the space to support a tailgate party at a ballgame. It is comfortable and easy to drive and park.

Cool

I love my Envoy. Looks great! I feel like the king of the road when I'm driving it. However I have heard both the regular sound system and the Bose and I HIGHLY recomend the Bose! And I wish that I would have got the XM radio. But the Envoy is awesome, much better then the Trailblazer (I've had both).

Well Done

Compare to all the cars that I've drove.. MDX, Pathfinder, highlander, nothing near the power of the New Envoy. It's totally Roomy and powerful. I dont have the roof retrack option but that a brillian Idea. I love it

great SUV

I have wanted one for several years but the price this year was great. It is comfortable and I just love all about it. I am surprised at Edmonds with their review. I can't beleive with the way the Ford Explorer flips that they rate it higher. This one is luxary inside and it is so roomy. I am very pleased with it

Nice truck with great standard features. Slightly disappointed in the noise level inside of the cabin at highway speeds. Truck looks good and has a very strong engine in this mid- size SUV class.

My GMC Envoy has been a pleasure to drive.I like the way it handles on curves,very smooth! Interior design was well thought out,before manufacturing. Automatic transmission is one of the smoothest shifting, I have ever driven. Exterior design caught my eye,because it wasn't overdone, like some SUV's I test drove.

Wind Tunnel

please NOTE: I have the GMC Envoy XL V8. Plenty of power, smooth V8. There is a wind noise problem. Inside the Envoy it sounds like you are riding in a Wind Tunnel or a convertible with the top down. It starts to get"windy" at 50 mph and by 65 to 70 the wind noise is unbearable. Only the Bose stereo can drown it out and it needs to be "crankin'". You can hardly hear yourself talk or think. GM can't fix it. The Dealer has tried a bug deflector, but that did not work. Poor design in and around the windshield area.

I love it

This vehicle is fun to drive and has great performance. It also has a lot of great features on it like programmable settings for two different drivers that get reset depending whose key is used. the xm satelite radio is also a great feature. We bought black exterior with tan leather interior and several people have stopped to compliment us on the car.

My wife drives above average number of miles each year. It was time to replace her GM vehicle. GM has great customer incentives at this time and the Envoy was a step up for us. The vehicle is really "Professional Grade". James Rivard GMC are outstanding in providing for our transportation needs and wants. The shopping and sales experience was great. Likewise, the service department appreciates us and takes excellent care of us.

Good Car and fun to drive

This is a great car. There is alot of room for our three kids (we got the third seat). Very comfortable interior for adults to sit in the rear seats. Only problem is it uses alot of gas, but we expected that.

My new fun vehicle

I enjoy driving my envoy very much. I like the feel of being a little higher than someof the other vehicles and I think it handles very well.I have had 3 new pontiac Bonneivilles with all the bells and gadgets. I enjoyed them very much, but there wasn't enough room to take what I needed to with me to winter in Florida. I really feel my Envoy compares with my previous cars very well. I hope I have as good luck with this vehicle as I did with my Bonnevilles. I like this one very much.

It's Great

This is my second one, and I like it more than the first. I recommend it highly.
