Dec 14, 2010 (5:47 pm)
I bought this Envoy new in 2004 Here are the PROBLEMS I'VE HAD SO FAR:
*Front differetial - replaced...Cost $3600.00 Dealer split difference w/ me since just out of warranty, and previous complaints from me about FWD performance.
*Transmission - went out... Just happened 100k miles. Cost $3000.00
*Rear tail-lights - continuously burning out
*Cigarette lighters - continuously burning fuses
*Radio lights - Half of radio lights are burnt out
*A/C - Fan blower will not work on highest (5) setting.. Cost wanted $500.00
*Windshield washer fluid motor - burnt out. Has been for a long time. Cost wanted $500.00
*Rearview mirror - Broke... Cost wanted $500.00.. You've gotta be kidding!
***Many other problems, but I am tired of complaning and coming upon deaf ears. Thanks for listening. I will never buy a GM vehicle again!

Were you able to determine what was causing the noise?

I have the same car and same issues; transmission, differential, tail lights, interior lights, and now?
The emblems on the side are wedging against the front quarter panels and are flipping off...
I had everything fixed, by the way. The price tag now? Over 12,000.00 in repairs, not to mention the payment itself...
#151 of 161 2005 Envoy various problems
Jul 25, 2011 (7:46 am)
We have a 2005 Envoy. Recently the four wheel drive service light, the ABS light and the brake light on the dashboard came on and stayed on. Also the heater/AC fan will not work. My mechanic changed the fan motor and the resister and the fan worked for about a minute and then quit. I have an appointment to take it to the dealer tomorrow but I am afraid of what the repairs will cost since I am on a fixed income. I am also not secure in the knowledge that the repairs will solve the problem since I have had repairs by my dealer in the past that were not satisfactory. I am beginning to think that the public is being ripped off by GM.

I apologize for the problems you are experiencing with your Envoy. Please keep me posted on any information from the dealership.

It turned out that the ignition switch was bad. When it was replaced, the problems were no longer there. The problem was not the fault of GM.

I have a clicking noise seems to be coming from behind the dash glass. Also had a dead battery. Battery was replaced, but I still have the noise. Dealer service writer was stumped as to origin of noise. Can hear it really well with key in "on" position, engine not running. You too?

I have a 2002 Envoy. I have the same clicking which varies in speeds. My family member is a mechanic, he advised it's relatively a simple fix. It's just getting to the problem that's the problem. It may be a fan that is related to the heating/cooling. This can be fixed/replaced. However, getting to this fan means the whole dash, or most of it needs to come off.
#157 of 161 More service needed on my 2002 Envoy
May 05, 2012 (10:26 am)
My dashboard recently lit up like a Christmas tree, just as the yearly registration was due. It seems I've been lucky with my vehicle up to this point. The day of my registration the "service airbag" light came on. Quite frustrating since my vehicle appears to be deteriorating all at once.
GM customer service only advised there are no 'open recalls' for the airbag problem that I'm having. He then asked me when, where and what time I plan on having the problem fixed since it was a safety concern. I'm not sure that I want to pay the price for the dealership to fix the problem. But I'm also concerned that GM will void the recall for my vehicle if I don't have the dealership fix it.
Does anyone know about services done on a potential safety recall situation like this?
