#10210 of 18329 krystalg - Baffled?
Feb 19, 2003 (1:38 pm)
How is it that you have an '03 Bravada in this post krystalg Feb 19, 2003 10:06am , and your husband has a TB... both complaining about problems!
yet krystalg "Isuzu Trooper" Nov 18, 2002 8:14am here, you have an '02 Trooper Limited and your husband has an Envoy?... not to mention you are ripping on the Ascender as being identical to the Triplets.
BTW, these aren't the only posts... Do you really have that much free time on your hands that you feel you need to fabricate posts just to flame owners of particular vehicles?
#10211 of 18329 Dealer agrees, the vibration does exist

Just getting them able to recreate the problem is 1/2 the battle. He test drove it with me and said lets try the balancing first. He did it as a first step and will now call GMC for the next step since this didn't aleviate the problem. The TSB #03-04-17-002 for the drive shaft referred to here on the board is for axles with 4.10 gears and that whine from the rear end. Stay tuned as the dealer & GMC have to tough out the vibrating pedal mystery. Stay tuned!

She is also single, according to her bio, which makes it tough to have a husband.

Probably an imaginary husband along with her (probably his) many imaginary vehicles.
There's some real nuts out there I tell ya.

Point is another name for a percentage. ie: 10 points off means 10% off. Good luck and good decision!!!!!!! Elliot

About Onstar making me give my credit card information to them before they would give the police the information, they now admit that I had paid the bill in full back in June, it was their mistake. So had my envoy been recover 1/2 hour earlier, would it have hit several cars and been damaged as bad. Right now it's at $5,100 (back bumper, new tailgate and rear passenger quarter panel) and still counting. I going to the dealer tomorrow to go over all the other damages inside and out.
One good point, the guy that stole my envoy had cut the cable for onstar at the antenna thinking that it would not work, boy was he wrong. It still worked.
Now I think onstar owes me more than the 3 free months they have offered.
By the way the guy was charged with Robbery and Assault so far, with more charges pending in the city.
My insurance company got a Trailbrazer for me to drive while we decide what happens to my envoy. Sorry Trailbrazer owners but I prefer the Auto-ride air shocks in the rear, ride is much smoother on bumpy roads.
Can't decide if I want my envoy back with all the damage and how they drove it. But if I don't keep it, I will buy another envoy.

Im glad you are safe, what an experience. Having said that, I hate my Onstar and feel its way way over priced. I was stuck getting the system since I bought off the lot and have refused to use it even though I have it free for the first year. They had a salesman call me to get me to buy additional services and told him its not even worth 1/2 of 13 dollars a month they charge. Good riddance to them when it expires.
If you are going to buy a new Envoy, get one with a limited slip differential, you wont regret it come the inevitable next snow storm.

First of all I did have a Trooper didnt like the way it drove after driving my husband's Envoy...He now currently have an TB because the Envoy was switched under GM for staying in the shop at least 2 days every other week for squeaks and shifting problems. As far as my BIO I truly didnt think anything of it to update it, but i see I should...and As far as vehicles...if you really want to investigate go to the Lincoln board...I have also owned a LS...Chrysler 300M...Chrysler Cirrus...and several other vehicles....I was merely looking for advice here not personal comments of what i do or do not have....BUT if I must prove myself to you sir, then I will truly send you a free of charge copy of my credit report which verifies what i have and have not owned. Like i said, I was here looking for advice on my vehicle not to be put down or looked at as a liar...and if you know anything about the DC, MD, VA...area one dealership sales several different brands of cars so the work is not hard to get out of one into another. and currently married (dec 7 02)...and the trooper was traded in late november in Silver Springs Maryland at Herb Gordon Olds....
Maybe if you are really interested you can give them a call and have them look me up to see what I drive since that is more important to you then answering a question regarding AWD.
And for the record, my engine light came on today at 3100 miles and will not go off...at this rate I will be at another dealership to trade it, so I will keep you posted sir as to what i purchase next if anything..
To everyone else, thanks for your input to my question and to you sir.. i hope next time someone is asking a question regarding a vehicle your response is to the vehicle not diggin into someone's past that you have no clue about.
