Gm Should Quit Purposely Designing In Problems!!! —

The good:smooth ride,quiet cabin,decent power from 6cyl, looks nice The REAL STORY:The 2003 Envoy XL which I currently have is not the original car picked up from the dealer.The first one, an SUV with a sticker of just under $37,000.00 came with side view mirrors which were MANUALLY AJUSTED-meaning they have to be moved by HAND!!! THIS IS INSANE! All GM emlpoyees who signed off on this before they actually sent these to market should lose their jobs. The XL which is the long wheel base, was not designed to fit 4x8 sheets inside with the hatch closed,my gas tank started to leak immediately after the warranty expired,the tachometer, oil pressure and engine temp gauges all quit working. The only gauges that work are the speedometer and fuel,(how long have gauges and gas tanks been used in cars???),the design/shape of the window and doorlock buttons is poorly engineered causing your finger to tend to slip off the closing end of the buttons,reverse light keeps filling up with water and therefore does not work,key gets stuck in the ignition,the 6 disc in-dash changer radio -which is an EXPENSIVE option package upgrade-has a cheap amplifier which drops out all low end bass when the volume is turned up (some good features of radio i.e. speed sensitive volume control but many annoying design issues),why does GM continue to put wheels on its vehicles with easily stolen and very expensive to replace center caps??!,the rear hatch has a difficult and awkward to grasp SLOT to close it as opposed to a handle,the windshield wiper/washer fluid controls were designed to force the driver to totally remove his hand from the steering wheel to operate even for a brief or short wiping/washing need (this should not have been incorporated with cruise control and turn signal all on one little stick),no light under the hood,no light in the glove box, no key hole on the passenger door or on the rear hatch, seat belts built into the seats are awkward and I'm a slim person,4 wheel drive has intermittant problems which of course don't show up while in for service, 13 MPG!!! This is all I could quickly think of while writing this review, but this is not by any means all of the issues I've had with this vehicle. I do not see a time in the future when I would consider purchasing another GM vehicle. This is a large reason why Toyota is moving ahead of GM in sales.
