Pros

I love my car! It has all wheel drive, heated seats, good air conditioning, a cd player that holds up to six CD's, a radio, and much, much more. I love how it has a hatch back and it has side compartments in the back as well as a cover to put over your things so people can't see what you have in the back hatch! The fuel is also pretty impressive in todays economy.

Cons

There is less leg room in mine, and the back seats cannot be heated. I also don't like how the people in the front of the car must control the air/heating and how if you want to listen to the radio or a cd in the back, you have to ask the people in the front to change the cd or the song.

A Good Car With Impressive Gas Milage! — back and it has side compartments in the back as well as a cover to put over your things so people can't see what you have in the back hatch!

Other than those little irritants, it's a great car.

Very Nice Suv For Me And My Family — Got my used a week ago...beautiful truck. My only concern is gas mileage, but I probably just gotta get used to having a bigger and more powerful engine. It is a nice upgrade from my '99 Tracker..love my "new" ride.

Envoy - Practical And Functional Work Horse. — Inexpensive, practical, powerful engine, mushy handling. Inexpensive, practical, powerful engine, mushy handling. This vehicle is likely no longer logical with the new crossovers coming from GM and others. Not sure why a 2008 model was made. The handling is mushy. the engine is strong. The ride is bouncey and road and wind noise is too loud. Engine starts loud. Breaks and traction lights always coming on at weird times for no apparent reason. With all that said, this type of car us a must have for my life style. Next time it will likely be a slightly smaller crossover for me. Times have changed Pros: roomy powerful Cons: mushy handling, interior noise, old style

Great Long-term Vehicle. — When I first got my truck, I loved sitting up high...tee, heee...but I enjoy it for the independence of carting all the stuff I need. It's fun to drive, large enough for my family! Her name is Crystal!

Pros

Looks great, drives well, has a lot of power, and tromps through the snow great!

Cons

It's been in the shop over 167 service days in the two years I've had it.

My Envoy Denali — I've had a lot of problems with my vehicle. It has been in the shop a total of 167 service days since I leased it in 8/06. They almost bought it back but then told me I WOULD HAVE TO PAY THEM TO TAKE IT BACK- $8000!!!! The vehicle has been in over 4 times for transmission, road harshness, tire, brake, body moulding, and belt issues.....it will never be right. I am totally screwed once the lease is up. I feel like the vehicle is comfortable, though. It has great power and is a trooper in the snow. She is gorgeous....just a pain in the butt. The dealership hasn't been great- which is a disappointment since I work there.

Pros

It has a nice feel to it on the open road and has plenty of power once you get it going

Cons

not alot of room unless you get the model with the 3rd row seat unlike mine

Not A Bad Vehicle Not Enough Options For What I Spent On It Or Room — Could have more pickup from the start,the weather stripping in the dr jams comes off to easily if you bump it,could be a little more roomier inside and for what I paid for it should have more options such as moonroof/pwr seats/better stereo/.Gas mileage is good and the trk drives very nice and is a good looking.Seems to eat up the goodyear tires though had them replaced at 15k miles.

Denali = Good Car — have had this car for over one year and only had to replace one major part that had a rock chip in it. over all for the having a V8 it gets decent gas at 19 in the city. and the V8 has the power to get you on the highway very easily.
