The stabilitrak and the gas gauge on our 2007 Envoy XL started about a month after we bought it. It has been to the dealership 3 times. The told us it was the front end and wouldn't even let us drive it becaude it was falling apart. We had only 71,000 kms on it. Finally after 3 1/2 weeks we got it back. And can you believe the stabilitrak light came back on. We were so upset. So my husband took it to a different dealership. They charged us $300 but figured out the Stabilitrak issue is in the steering column and it is a computer module. It costs $1000 cdn to replace. So we are waiting on that. Now the gas guage is starting not to work. We have only had this truck for 6 months. We drove 6000 kms to California and the truck was awesome except for fuel consumption. (Used to a 4 cyl. car) So hopefully this helps with the Stabilitrak issue. When the Stabilitrak light comes on you totally loose your traction control. I almost lost control with my 2 year old in the truck and I am also pregnant. We have lots of snow in the winter where I am from. It was scary.
#5 of 192 2006 GMC Envoy Problems
Jul 25, 2010 (11:36 am)
My GMC Envoy Denali had the same gas guage proplem that was remedied by replacing the entire fuel pump assembly with the fuel guage float arm. A very small, flexible metal sensor had broken off causing the fuel guage to read "F or E" erratically.
HERE IS A CURRENT PROBLEM that I am experiencing with this vehicle: The rear load leveling shocks will deflate causing the car to "sit on its butt", when parked. This happens intermittently. The occurences are unpredictable and do not seem to be related to any particular weather condition, winter or summer, but, occur only when the car is parked. As soon as the car is started the shocks re-inflate and stay inflated while driving. The dealership kept the car for 3 days without diagnosing the problem. Has anyone else experienced this situation???

We took my car to two different dealerships. Both places stated that we needed new shocks installed on the car. Both dealerships verified that they were leaking through the air shock bags. This was surprising as the car has only 50,000 miles on it. We read online that this was a common problem, with the 2006 Envoy, and that the problem was a sensor that needed to be calibrated........ simple fix done at any dealership. Neither dealership that we took the car to, had any idea about a defective or uncalibrated sensor. Consequently, we had new shocks installed and have not had any further problems with the car "sitting on its butt".

I have the same issue with my 2005 Envoy XLS. The car died on the highway, just shut down and I had it towed to the dealer. They scoped it and had to replace the fuel pump and sender (total $1600) to fix the problem.

The 2004 envoy should be included for defective fuel gauge also I called the customer service dept. today 10/14/2011, to see if there was a recall for this problem, of course the answer was no. He suggested that I should take the truck to the dealership to have it check. I told him I would, if it wouldn't be a cost ( yeah right). I paid $35,000.00 for a truck, and I couldn't get any satisfaction.
#11 of 192 Gas gauge and oil pump problems

Maybe some good new for it all with this issue. I received a letter from GMC About the gas gauge issue at the start of OCT. It talked about the gauge jumping back and forth and the lights going on. GMC offered to a 50/50 spilt on the of the cost. It is for a 10 year/120,000 miles.
I had the sensor repaired last thursday oct 20,2011. But heres the fun part ... Let my daughter use the car to go to visit friends at a college (3 hours away) this weekend. Now, the car is running rough and stalling then shut off. the new light show the engine with a arrow pointing down. This mean the car is moving itself in to low power to save it's self from mass failure.
the first repair costed $164.00 I wonder what this one will cost.
#12 of 192 2005 Envoy XL Oil Pressure Issue
Oct 30, 2011 (6:43 am)
I too bought my Envoy new. I've had all of the same isuues with the rear lights going out, fan issues, gas guage and oil pressure guage. I paid the50/50 split to correct the gas guage. Then the engine light starting staying on. Then I paid the dealer $692 for labor and parts to correct what they called a cooling issue with the enfine and seals to the cam shaft. The next day, the oil guage starting coming on every time I came to a stop, with a message saying oil pressure low & stop engine!! Now the dealer says I need a new engine for $5,200 on an SUV with 125,000. They also appraised it at $4,000 and told me it's not worth spending the money on a new engine, but get a new car! After spending almost $1,000 in one month on repairs & maintence, now they say get a new car! A think a class action suit is needed after spending $35,000 on an SUV that can't last pass 6 years.
