we owned it for 9 years.
I hate giving it up. I judge other vehicles by the performance and reliability of this one. I won't give it away to a dealer based on similar cars if this type.
Great SUV for the price
This vehicle runs great, lots of room for the family, have not had any problems with it. I would recommend to someone looking for a larger vehicle.
very clean for being an 03 and Ohio car
We were looking for a winter car to take to Florida and leave and we had a piece range and size we were looking for. After talking with John he pointed us to car that fit our needs. Big enough and up off the ground to slide in and out of it has just the right features we wanted and and easy for my elderly mom to get in and out of. Plenty of leg room and 2 heater/air controls for both front seat occupant to be comfortable. Fold down seats so we can haul larger and longer items and even individual controls for heated seats. This car is great for what we needed.
A tough SUV
Owned mine for over 15 years. Reliable, good towing capability, just keeps running. Racked up over 255K miles and still going!
I still like driving it
I have owned this SUV for 14+ years and 255,000 miles, and still like to drive it. It has been reliable on the highway, commuting, and towing trailers to/from college for my kids.
Comfortable and reliable!
We bought our 2003 GMC Envoy used from a family member, and knew that we were buying well maintained and reliable vehicle. I am 6'3" and the leg room in the driver's seat was very nice. Most smaller SUVs don't have much head space or cargo space, but the 2003 Envoy has both! My car experience has been that Honda's and Toyotas are the most reliable, but this Envoy ranks right up there. We drove it up until 236,000 miles and when we sold it the engine was still running strong!
would not buy gmc again,
gmc has reduced quality on much of the interioy, 80 miles and stills runs great. Have had problems with drivers seat had to replace drivers seat slide mechanism. Leather on the drivers seat is all cracked and starting to separate. Has been treated four timesa year sense new. Always used name brand leather products. Low door panels have faded to a white color, never had a car do this before, My mechanic. said it was from wiping the panel off with a rag while rag that was was still damp from using Armor. in other areas.
Great car to own
I received my 2003 gmc from my grandfather just over a year ago. Since then it has reached 206,500 miles. I have only had to replace small things such as upper and lower ball joints and tie rod ends. The water pump and fan cluch have been replaced as well. I have towed many times with it and it tows pretty good. It has lasted 14 years so far, with minimal repairs. It is still on its original transmission, and the thermostat is stuck open, but she keeps going. The only problem I have with it is a starting problem that the engine turns over but won't start every once in a while, and no one can seem to figure out what it is, but she has been a tank and keeps picking through. Would recommend this car to anyone.
Plenty of room. But expesive gas gusler.
03 Envoy has lots of room. Heated seats helps relax you. But only get 13 mpg. I'm always at the gas station. So take into consideration cost to operate before you buy this car.
Great at first, especially for carpools.
Seats 7 people, the middle seat is located in the middle row and is actually quite comfortable. The top brake signal above the trunk door fell off after a few years, and we are now beginning to have engine problems.
