Envoy SLT, Perfection

This ride has been outstanding. I am at 190,000 and just now having small issues that I am able to fix myself. I can get anywhere, even in 24 inch snow last year while others sat. I love my Envoy.


Electrical Nightmare

This was my second Envoy (tree fell on my 2003). Bought the 2006 used with 107,xxx miles on it, and for a while it was incredible. Setting aside the typical repairs of ball joints, rotors, and a few odd things like the transmission shift cable breaking, within 6 months this V8 began to mysteriously not start or turn over, out of the clear blue. Drive from home to get gas, then nothing. In one 4 week period it was towed 3 times to a very reputable mechanic. Such problems are known to exist in some V8s around 2006, and they are almost impossible to track down. Replace the starter/solenoid, worked great, then BOOM dead again. Ignition switch, boom dead again. Relay switch in the fuse box, replaced, then BOOM dead later on. Just dumped it as I couldn't afford to keep repairing it and being inconvenienced with the towing and shop interludes. Too bad, as I really liked the Envoy.


Great Vehicle for Towing a Boat and having Fun !!!

Roomy stylish comfortable with plenty of Power. This GMC Envoy Denali has all the extra's leather seats Bose stereo and great overall view of the road it makes traveling a long distance a breeze.


Great experience! Thanks again Curtis

I had a great experience with Curtis Robinson. He was a genuine sales person and knowledgeable of the product. I told him my price range and he didn't try to push me higher or out of it.


Love the Envoy

I fell in love with it when I first drove it. Love the sunroof and leather interior. It's my new baby!


2006 envoy

Hi we have had our 2006 envoy since new. I used it to drive across country as I live in portland oregon and have property in South Dakota. Never let us down. Sure it has the usual issues every few years ( cracked exhaust manifold) hub bearings but that is part of owning a vehicle right. It now has 290,000 miles and still going strong! That's right two hundred and ninety thousand miles and change. Still smells like new leather and drives like a new car. Will keep it untill it finally calls it quits which I do not see in the near future.


Saved my life! Never have to second guess an Envoy

So I've been driving envoy's my whole life, I bought my first envoy 2 years ago as a used 2002 SLT with 80,000 miles on it and yeah it needed the usual work every used car needs but once it had that done the car was a charm. Its high class at middle class rates, and features as good as any lugery car. The way it handles while driving is like no other and its turning radius is perfect! I've been driving ambulances and ALS SUVs for 3 years and everytime I get behind my envoy after work I'm the happiest guy in the world. I also purchased a 2005 a year later with 45,000 miles on it just to keep the car fresh and used my 2002 as a trade in for it. It again gave me no problems at all. The only thing was I let my girlfriend drive us home one day and we had a very very bad car accident thank god we were in this envoy because it saved us! The truck was hit by a 16 wheeler and flew over a divider and did a flip and the only damage it took was to the front and side all safety features worked all air bags went off and in the words of the state police if it wasn't a gmc we would've died! The truck suffered no interior damage and I owe my life to that truck for saving me! I used the insurance money to buy a 2006 SLT and I love it just like the rest it's even better then the others a d it handles so much better then my moms jeep or dads Benz . I will never stray from an envoy or GMC ever !


Perfect Mid-size SUV that tows

We bought a ?06 SLE2 new and have ~77k miles on it. The only issue it has had was something in the fuel indicator/sensor/sending unit that failed under warranty. It rides like a car, has a tight turning radius and gets the advertised 21 highway mpg. It can also tow two horses when we need it to. Beats the pants off its competition for towing. It?s a pity they discontinued this model because I don?t need the Yukon XL and the Acadia won?t meet my towing needs. We intend to keep it a very long time. It?s been a solid investment and very reliable. We drive all over the east coast with it. Acceleration is fine, engine is quiet, just an all around nice pick.


excellent vehicle

Went to cars.com to find a reliable slightly used vehicle. I had a 2004 Envoy in the past and had really liked it, so when my GMC Acadia lease was up I was looking for GMC quality but looking to reduce my payments. I founda 2006 with only 12,000 miles on it. It's just like new and I love it.


easy to like

i put lots of miles on cars and have bought low mi cars and trucks and kept them to 50k and this one is the easiest to like. time will tell about the value. you could spend a lot more $$ and not come close to what you get with this v-8 denali. always 18+ mpg. record snowfall in ohio this year, i think this is the best all around car/truck/suv i have had. from the luxurious steering wheel to the auto features, i can't think of anything i didn't like.
