#10 of 30 2007 Envoy Denali Rear Suspension
Oct 16, 2010 (4:12 am)
I purchased a 2007 Envoy Denali in Nov. 2008, 26000. I now have 51000. It's a good riding SUV and I really like it. My problelm is with that my rear suspension has lowered way down and when I called a GMC shop to ask about it, the customer care rep told me I would have to replace the rear airbags????? at a cost of $2800!!!! - I told him he must be kidding!!! I am making a car note and this repair is rediculous!! I'm taking it to the shop this morning to see what a Technician says.
Anyone have any suggestions!!!!!! Thanks, Rose

I saw an Envoy on the highway with a cover over the trailer hitch opening in the bumper with GMC printed on it. The cover filled the entire opening for the trailer hitch. Anyone know where I can purchase one?

I really don't like the air suspension on the Envoy. Mine runs all the time, well, not all the time, but way too often. And the pump is so darn loud, it's kind of embarrassing when it happens in town next to pedestrians, like my truck just farted. I wonder how hard it would be to convert it to a coil spring setup with trailblazer parts.
Other than that i do like the truck. I have a 2007 4x4. I love the V8. If it had 3.73s it would be an absolute hot rod, but with the 3.42s it moves along better than most. It's a beautiful vehicle, especially in black. It's a little cramped inside, but comfortable. I don't really understand why the dash has to be so bulky, just like the S15 Jimmys which preceded it.

I know it's been awhile since you posted but I just wanted to say that I just had to pay over $1,000 to GMC for the exact same problem. I have a 2007 Envoy Denali with about 40K miles on it. It began sagging in the back and so I took it in and they said that the rear air bags were "cut" somehow?? I immediately asked if they meant someone had done it and they said "no, it was probably just that one got cut somehow and affected the other" or some BS like that. I couldn't believe how ridiculous it was but of course had no choice but to have it fixed. I'd like to know how many others have been affected by this same problem. They shouldn't get away with these things. They always manage to happen JUST when the vehicle goes out of warranty too. It's obviously a problem with the way THEY made these vehicles, not a coincidence. This is a relatively new vehicle. There should be no major repairs to pay for before 100K miles. It's no wonder I've always bought foreign cars before this. I was trying to get out cheaper but it looks like I may not in the long run, with them pulling crap like this.

Rose and berry,
Same for my denail, My body shop guy notice it when detailing the car. He fixed it for $700 as it was only the pump that was bad.
Body shop guys need work too.

I just noticed last week I had some stains on the headliner of my 2007 GMC Denali (only 42K miles on it) and contacted the dealership. My daughters seatbelt was wet when I discovered this. I am not prepared to spend this kind of money to have this repaired. I am prepared to take this to the sales person whom sold me this vehicle. I hope it's only the drain that needs repair and not the whole entire job. The toyota and Kia vehicles I have had over the past 15 years HAVE NEVER HAD THIS PROBLEM!!!!

We can set up a Customer Assistance case for you if you like. Please send us an email with your name, contact information, the last 8 digits of your VIN, the name of your involved dealership, and how many times you've been in to the dealership for this issue (it's okay if it's none, we just need to know to assemble a case). Any other information you want to add is welcome.
