More Bang For The Buck. — Performance gets 4 stars, she's got power galour. runs smooth, driver friendly the quality if this SUV is outstanding,Apperance of the car: the interior is stylish, maintenance has been excellent, other than regular servicing I have not had to have any major repairs to this vehicle. Its pretty cool, equipt with ON STAR, CD and cassette player. Lots of extra plugs for add ons, like your phone charger, navigational device and laptop computer. The sun roof on a cool spring day is awesome...this car handles like a charm. the rear seats are 60/40 split. Seat two and fold down one, or Seat one and fold down two...leaves plenty of room for our 107lb Yellow Lab and our luggage too.

White Gmc — what I like about the car is that have a lot of space and what I dislike about the car is that you have to press brakes from far away or you will hit someone because the car is to heavy.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

It's A Very Nice Vehicle, But Not One Of Gm's Best. — Has a smooth ride, smooth acceleration, quiet on the road, handles very nicely on the highway. Braking is very smooth and quiet. The interior styling is nice and more upscale than the Chevrolet or Oldsmobile counterparts (TrailBlazer and Bravada). The Envoy has every option you could think of. Downsides of the Envoy include poor fuel economy, and lower quality than other vehicles I have owned. I have had 2 wheel bearing hubs replaced, the AC compressor replaced, the air pump for the rear suspension replaced, and have had a new tie rod put in. There are problems with the front suspension and the engine is VERY noisy and sluggish when cold. When I first start it up on cold morning is sounds and feels like a diesel. It is as fun to drive as driving a mid-size SUV can be... The engine and drive-train are reliable, but many other components are not.

Great Family Ride — I love the way the 02 GMC Envoy is styled. The newer models have changed the body style. I love this version. It is a great family vehicle for those long summer trips. The SUV gives plenty of leg room for the front and back passengers.

Pros

EXTREMELY comfortable ride, ALOT of power for an inline 6, very roomy inside, great gas mileage for a 5,000 pound SUV

Cons

transmission could be built a little better to handle tougher conditions, and the AWD fails if it's not used for awhile

One Of The Best Suv's Around! — Very nice car for those looking to have room, nice pickup and towing, and good gas mileage. The Envoy performs excellent under any conditions (that I've been through at least) and continues to perform well beyond expectations. The engine has enough power and torque to leave V-8's hanging at the line, but that's not it, it can also tow large boats with ease in the AWD and can handle mountains with the 4HI and 4LO settings.

Love It! Now That I Put Money Into Brakes And Tranny — 109,000 miles, I love her but she's cost me this year! Now she's like a brand new truck! Tranmission needed rebuilt (ask for the new version rebuilt kit, more heavy duty. Same as on the yukon), tires, hubcap, brakes, tranny flush, cv joints & O2 sensor. About 6k inc.labor. But everything else runs & looks great! Never getting rid of my trucky! Great space for a family of 4 and 2 dogs :-) Very powerful engine, original tranny just couldn't keep up. Go ENVOYS!

Great — Performance for a straight six is better than the V 8 model. It has ALL the goodies and rides nice and even does some 4 wheeling. It's not on gas on tghe highway but a killer around town.We love our Envoy
