#407 of 515 2005 Fuel Sensor Malfunction
Dec 09, 2011 (8:56 am)
Everytime I fill have up the gas tank on my 2005 ENVOY the check engine light comes on the fuel guage reads empty when the tank is full. I received a letter from GMC stating they will pay for 1/2 the cost to repair which I think is unfair. With so many customers having this problem there should be a recall on this item. However they will not take responsibility for item. After talking to representatives from GMC I was asked to take it into a GMC dealer to check it out. I took to the GMC dealer for them to check it only for them to tell me that I would also be responsible for the cost of a diagnostics. This seems like a very unjust request since they are very aware of the problem. This is my first GMC vehicle and will be my last. Every where I go people want to know how I like my truck I use to tell Very much. Now I will tell them to stay away from GMC because they are not loyal to there customers or there product.

I have to say that I agree, Lilcutie1. Before having this fuel gauge problem (and a couple more), I would have recommended this car to anyone. Now, I wouldn't. And the fact that GMC will pay for 1/2 of the repair indicates that they know there is a problem. They should pay for the full repair cost. I own a small business, and I can't even imagine not taking care of my customers. Don't they realize that, by not paying for the repairs, they will lose return business, which must cost a lot more in the long run than these repair costs? It simply doesn't make sense...

I have back and forth in communication with the corporate office and they don't seem to get it. We really need to look into what our options are for a class action case.
#411 of 515 Envoy XL SLT Gas Gauge Broken
Dec 09, 2011 (7:15 pm)
I am the first owner of a 2005 Envoy XL SLT with 86,000 miles. I have had a couple major problems with my truck. First problem the truck was burning oil. Thank goodness this problem occurred while the truck was still under warranty. Now that the car has reached 7 years old and is out of warranty I have encountered new problems. First the RPM gauge stopped working temporarily. The head lights turn off sometimes and it doesn't respond to turning the switch on and off. The air condition trap door, which is located under the dashboard is stuck, so if I turn off the air it makes an annoying clicking sound. Penske said it will cost $1000 to repair the air condition door. The newest and most frustrating problem with my truck is the fuel gauge is broken. When I fill up my truck the gauge bounces up and down and the electronic mileage display indicates "---" or it states "fuel level low". Penske stated that I have to pay $175 to repair this problem and GMC will pay the remaining portion. I think it is unreasonable for them to charge me anything because the average gas gauge sensor lasts 12 to 20 years without a problem. GMC should recall the part and pay for the entire cost.

Welcome to the club!! I saw a lady the other day driving an Envoy and ask her about the truck. She said and I agree, "It rides good but NONE of my gauges work and I bought it new!" GMC SHOULD recall ALL of these vehicles! Anyone you ask will tell you they have the same issues!! We were stranded on the interstate with a 3 month old baby in the back seat when ours ran out of gas..in a construction zone!! And they say it is not a SAFETY issue?? If you don't use the rip off dealers they will not refund you anything!!!

I can understand why you are frustrated. I have posted in response to other forum members who have a similar position to yours in regards to the repair on the gas gauge inviting them to open up a Customer Assistance Case, and wanted to make sure that you knew you were invited to do so as well.

I Agree with you Alihs, from the day i bought my used GMC Envoy till now i 'm having issues with my GMC Envoy 2004. At times i'm driving with my family and the car begin to feel like it just cant go anymore, the wheels become locked up along with the engine making a lot of noise with the car moving really slow. I was also stranded at new york when my GMC decided not to start, after i had it towed to the closest mec shop i was told that it was the battery, so i bought a new one, still didn't work, took almost the old day for them to figure out that it was the ignition switch. I've been trying to trade this car in for the last three years but no dealership is willing to take it, they are even willing to let me keep the envoy along with giving me another car. Really don't know what to do, i'm only sure that i worry everyday my family and i get in that car.
