2005 GMC Envoy Problems

Electrical & Lights -- Verified

The fuel level sensor in the fuel tank may fail causing erratic fuel gauge operation. Our technicians tell us that on high mileage vehicles you may wish to replace the complete fuel pump module assembly if this condition occurs.
On certain 2005 - 2007 vehicles, General Motors has provided a special service policy covering the fuel level sensor, agreeing to pay 50% of the repair cost. This coverage extends for 10 years or 120,000...

Suspension & Steering -- Verified

On vehicles equipped with rear air springs, the air compressor may fail causing the rear suspension to sit low.

Exhaust & Emissions -- Verified

Illumination of the Check Engine Light can be caused by a loose or worn gas cap.

Heating & Air Conditioning -- Verified

The HVAC blower motor may stop working at one or more speeds due to a faulty blower motor resistor block. Our technicians recommend to confirm the resistor is at fault by first checking the operation of the switch.

2005 GMC Envoy Reviews

I have always driven chevy's and now own a 2005 gmc envoy. I have never had any complaints before but this vehicle is nothing but problems. Now I have a problem with the fuel guage and I got a letter stating to get it fixed BUT they will only pay 50% of the repair AFTER I pay all of it. What is with this????? I like to support them but will reconsider with my next vehicle.

I have had this car for 3 years the air conditioning blower went out paid 300 to fix left brake light keeps blowing now gas hand and half the lights on inside work.Going down the road the other night all lights went out.no GMC dealer wonts to help thay say we will have to pay for all work. My sister in law has a 2006 Envoy and its doing the same thing. Will never own a GMS again and when i wreack due to lights going out Gmc will here from my lawyer

I have a 2005 Envoy SLT. It has been a decent car. It burns a quart of oil every 500 miles. I have had it into various dealerships and they tell it is normal and they won't do anything until a part failure happens. It has been like this for 3 years. now it has a missfire code. All the dealerships tell me it is not electronic issue put a new motor in it. Well, we have narrowed it down to an exhaust leak in cylinder three. And we found were the oil was going. strait into the spark plugs. GMC would not help us with anything for 3 years. Now I have to rebuild the motor myself because they ignored our complaints and questions. I will not buy a GMC or chevy product again because there is no one there that will help you.

I love my Envoy. The 30,000 mile tune up was a little expensive. Had to replace drums and break pads at 30,000. Thought that was to soon. The garage wanted 1000.00 to have them done. Had mechanic do side job. parts and labor less than 400.00

The smooth running V6 makes this SUV, and Lots of power. The ride is also good. Only a few minor problems. This truck just runs and runs.
