Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2002 GMC Envoy Owner Comments

problem #3

Dec 022010

Envoy SLE 4.2L Inline 6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 160,000 miles


The blower motor only worked on high and eventually knocked the fan off balance due to being on high all the time. Sometimes it didn't work at all. It was the blower motor resister which was a very common problem with the GMC Envoy. You can get the part for $30 to $45 depending if you have auto A/C or not. The cheapest place I found it was at AM Auto here is the link.

If that isn't the problem you may have to change out the blower motor itself and that's an extra $51 or so. Hope this helps.

Envoy SLE V6

its always something. i've taken my truck in for repairs on the alarm going off when i open the hatch or the back doors. the wipers didnt work, numerous recalls (at least 6), half of the rear defroster doesnt work and its not covered under the warranty. i was told it would be about $700 to get a new rear window. nothing was fixed with one trip to the dealer.
