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
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
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
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.
