#20 of 29 Surrounded by suspension sagging SUVs! and I own one too!
Apr 14, 2012 (7:38 pm)
I have the same problems that you all have on my 2007 Saab 9-7x. I live in a GM town (Lansing, MI). Nearly every time I'm at stoplight I see another Envoy, Trailblazer, Buick or Olds equivalent, or 9-7x sagging to one side. It is a shame that GM has not done anything to fix this issue. It is a blatant error on their part, and a poor display of their product! In addition to the horribly designed, sagging air-suspension, my Stabilitrak activates almost every time I enter the expressway using a circular on-ramp. This cuts the throttle making it nearly impossible to accelerate and merge into traffic. This "truck" is to the point that it is unsafe to drive. Just like the Envoy and Trailblazer, my Saab is GM's poor attempt at a luxury SUV. Can anyone offer guidance on how to resolve these issues with GM? Thanks

I also own Envoy Denali (06) with sagging rear suspension problem. I have been a GM owner for last 4 vehicles and somewhat mechanically inclined. The last 2 visits to GMC dealers have not gone well. I would like to know if GM has some kind of customer service help for possible recall. The rear suspension works fine one day and will sag the next which is a safty issue that needs to be corrected...

#24 of 29 Noise from rear end & check engine light on AGAIN
Sep 22, 2012 (12:22 pm)
I have a 07 Envoy Denali and I am scared of this thing! I have owned it for 19 months and I have had nothing but trouble from it since the 1st month! I have had numerous issues but the main problem has been repeated issues with the rear end and once again the issue has started and this time my warranty is expired. Dealer says there is nothing they can do for me now, Factory warranty, extended warranty and Dealer warranty recently expired. I am so sick of this thing breaking down!!!
It starts with the service stabilitrak light coming on and then within minutes from the light coming on a loud thumping noise will start coming from the rear end and then it acts like it doesnt want to move forward.
Worst vehicle I have ever owned and so disappointed!!!

Like everyone else I too have this issue on my 2007 Envoy Denali. I vetted this issue with a spray bottle of soapy water and found that the part of the air ride bag that collapses on itself due to a lack of air causes a breakdown in the rubber thus creating cracks in it. My repair guy says that this is partly due to dirt and debris tearing into the rubber as the bag collapses. I say a contributing factor is the design. Unless there is a leak why would the air escape? Now I am looking at several hundred dollars in repair. Additionally I understand that the duty cycle on the compressor is only 20%. It comes on every time I start my SUV. My biggest concern is the possible replacement of it!! Is there a recall or assistance that GM can provide? I really like my vehicle but such issues will not keep me a lifelong customer!

I have a 2007 GMC Envoy Denali and it also has the sagging suspensions and the compessor os working overtime to keep it up my wife and kids drive this car we do not have 1000 or more to put air bags or tubes etc. We need to know what GM is gong to do about this obvious design flaw that has by my count affected THOUSANDS of vehicles. I have not taken to dealer yet I am sure this would be a 1200 fix. The owners that have has this issue have been loyal chevy and GM owners to shell out what we paid for thse suvs and to have them sag down like a jalopy like that is unsafe and how this has not resulted in a recall I do not know.

Suspension sagging constantly working compressor. Need to know what GM is going to do about this it has affected thousands of vehicles, the truck is undrivable and unsafe in such a condition I wonder if any accidents have been caused by this? Here is a link to a kit on strutmasters to rip out the air and put springs and shocks for $199
