"Solid car. Reliable, comfortable with kids, dogs, babies, etc. Moved two kids cross country for college and jobs without incident. Towed boat back and forth to lake and storage without problem. Gas hog, however. Around 14 mph in town. About 18 - 20 on highway. Only selling it because of gas usage in town."
"I bought this Envoy in 2008 with 35,000 miles on it. Drove it from NJ to NM with a friend in 36 hours straight. The only problems have been with a failed fuel gauge (fixed under warranty) and a failed speedometer (fixed by a local mechanic).
The handling isn't great, but the vehicle has motored through some very heavy weather (unplowed roads, heavy mud) and never missed a beat. To me, the ability to switch to AWD and/or 4WD is valuable. In the middle of nowhere, with unpaved roads, SUVs aren't just a fashion statement.
The local mechanic said it's good for well over 200,000 miles. The only reason I would trade it would be for better mileage."
