"I bought a 2004 Envoy used in 2006 with approx 20k miles. It needed tires and the brake rotors gave a pulsation from the rust that accumulated due to it sitting at dealer lot for a while. They put new tires/brakes on it, and I replaced tires at 85k and they were by no means bald. And the brakes I recently replaced (120K) with about 15-20 pad left and rotors still ran out straight creating no pulsation in the pedal whatsoever. Other than that, at approx 80k I replaced spark plugs (no wires-coil on plug), fuel filter, serpentine belt, and FPR. I use the factory Oil chg monitor and Mobil 1 5-30. That is it. Not a single breakdown, original battery still has loads of power, every single feature in the car works as it did they day it was made. I am a mechanic, and I do maintain my vehicles meticulously, but I have never had one go this long without a water pump/fuel pump/alternator/wheel bearing/u-joint, etc. failing. Best car GM ever made too bad it was short lived!!!!!"
"WE HAVE PUT 200000 MILES ON THIS RIDE. GREAT CAR, REASONABLE FUEL MILIAGE FOR A FULL SIZE SUV. ONLY DOWN SIDE IS THE SLACK IN THE AWD MODE. 2WD AND FULL TIME 4WD ARE GREAT. A GREAT CHOICE IF YOU NEED A DEPENDABLE SUV WITH GOOD LUGGAGE CAPACITY AND GOOD TOWING CAPABILITIES."
Pros: "Dependable, good ride, great size, comfortable"
Cons: "low gas mileage"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9
"Owned vehicle almost 8 years, and it has been a great investment. No problems whatsoever. Replaced the battery twice, windshield wipers, and performed regular maintenance. Just rolled 100,000 and going strong! Great vehicle that has been reliable, and I would highly recommend it!"
"Purchased my 2002 Envoy brand new in Oct. 2002. For 5 years my commute miles were approx. 600 miles per week. Never had any major problems until with vehicle until now...a cylinder blew. The SUV rides great and handles the road with ease. Love this vehicle and will have seperation anxiety when time comes to put her down."
