Great Car With Quality And Utility — The 2005 GMC Envoy is a great car. Handles well for an SUV and changing from 2 wheel drive to 4 wheel drive on the fly comes in handy in rain and snow conditions. Interior is very nice with the upgraded leather, heated / power seats and Bose sound system and sunroof make this a fun car to drive.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros

Great looking SUV with real towing capability.

Cons

Fuel economy could be a little better in the city but low 20's on the highway is pretty good for all the capability the SUV has.  
Wind noise during a cross wind at highway speed is loader than I expected.

Great Mutlipurpose Suv, The Perfect Size For All Occansions. — This car has been great to me, just your standard wear and tear maintenance. No major mechanical issues. Smooth ride of an SUV with plenty of power and loaded with features. I wish they made a new one just like it and I'd buy it in an instant!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Impressed — Comfortable, affordable luxury. Powerful, spacious, dependable, affordable, reliable, and stylish for an SUV that is not considered a luxury brand. Resale value after 10 years is pretty good, and has over 200k miles yet, runs quiet and strong, like brand new engine. Will keep and not trade.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Mid Sized Suv With Luxury — This vehicle gives you the power of the larger full sized SUVs but in a mid size. The comfort is consistent with the Denali line and its well appointed. You will enjoy driving it but not all the stops at gas stations. Still the cargo space is impressive.

Good Gmc Suv — Car dealers have sent me letters asking about selling it for it's resale value. Apparently there is a big market for the Envoy in good condition. Mine has dents and scratches and stained rear carpet (kids) so mine would not be the one they want. But I see a lot of Envoys on the road so they are lasting a long time.

Pros

It is safe

Cons

Gas Mileage

25

Great 3 Person Family Car And Good For Outdoors — The envoy overall is a great car. The leather seats are very comfortable the automatic seat setting is awesome. The seat warmers come in use in winter. It is great to take off the road. But the gas mileage sucks I would not recommend to someone that cant afford the gas to drive it!

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

A Good Car For Long Journeys — An exelent car long ways and "family transportation" and can also be used for towing a boat etc. It has an exelent driving performance and a good luxorious interior.But it has a bad mileage performance and cost of maintanence is sky rocketing

Its Fun To Drive An Envoy — There is not much that I can complain about when it comes to the envoy. I will say that it is no Land Rover but I also didnt spend $60,000 on it. The rise is amazing the interior is spacious and comfortable in all aspects. The one problem I have with the vehicle if you could call it that is that the engine lacks the power to really get up and go when you need to, but that is also coming from a person who has been drag racing 2 of his last 3 vehicles. I would suggest this vehicle to everyone.
