GMC ENVOY

Seriously thinking of buying the new ENVOY XUV. Anyone have the Envoy SLE or SLT. I want to hear your impressions of it in terms of reliability, which engine to go for, comforts etc.
Thanks in advance

I have a 2003 Envoy SLT. Love the comfort, power, looks.
But it's been in to the dealer more times than I care to admit. I'm very disappointed in GM's lack of responsibility and their follow-through. I have an intermittant problem that GM admits is a wide-spread problem but they won't tell me 1) what the exact problem is or 2) when a fix will be available.
The truck has a "stutter" or "hiccup" when stopped (tranny in drive) at a stop light/sign for over 30 seconds. GM sent me a letter upping my tranny warranty to 100,000 miles and considered the issue closed.
We had to escalate the issue to the BBB.
Other problems I've had: A/C blowing warm air (fixed), rear license plate gasket shrinks (repeat), wind noise from front doors (dealers says it's normal), headliner sags at rear of sunroof (fixed), external temp sensor not working (fixed).

A/C blowing warm air (fixed), rear license plate

Every single one of these issues are with the early first year Envoy/Bravada/TB. These have all been remedied, and no '03s should have any of these issues.

I guess I'm just unlucky then... mine is an '03. I've owned several GM vehicles and have been very pleased. But our experience with this one has been disappointing and frustrating. No one at the dealer or the GM Customer Serivce Center gives us any indication that they care to fix the tranny problem.
A simple "Yes, we know we have a wide-spread problem and are ACTIVELY working on a fix." is what I expected. Not the "Here's a letter extending your tranny warranty; case closed. Don't call us back. Escalate to the Better Business Bureau if you care to." that we received.

Have the 2003 for last two month with 4.2 l I6. So far not bad except that the rear seats do not fold flatly, as they did in my old blazer. I think this is due to fact that the ON STAR and vehicle computer (and Fuses), are mounted under back seat, as well as the jack. I have to look more closely there. BTW, this is my first encounter with ON STAR and I think it sucks. I have some GPS running with my PC navigating before that way and of course I have the cell phone, so I am not impressed with this.
Ziggie.
