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.

Envoy 4WD 6-cyl

The speedometer on my 2004 GMC Envoy does not work properly. It will sometimes show that the vehicle is going a certain mph while the vehicle is in park. Example: Vehicle is in park. Speedometer shows 34 mph. When driving, the speedometer bases it's speed off of 34 mph being at 0 and actual speed is 34mph higher than what I am actually going. Also, vehicle speedometer will sometimes get stuck past 120mph because of the needle being at a certain speed when the vehicle is not even moving.

Envoy 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 42,000 miles
The mph and RPM gauges not working. Needle would not go down to zero. Would get stuck in one mph and continue to increase from there. Was able to get it down to zero in 5mph increments by starting and shutting down the engine, but then after driving it would stick at 40 and up. Thought it was strange that my other 2004 Chevy truck received a recall letter for the exact problem my GMC was having. Had to pay out of pocket to replace dash board cluster(over $500). I needed to know the speed I was driving. Very dangerous situation.

Speedometer has stopped working properly. Most of the time it is stuck above 120 mph. It never shows the correct speed the vehicle is going.

Envoy 6-cyl

My speedometer started going back and forth, then eventually would stick at a number. It would seem to work at one point and then go back and forth again. Going through town, it shows 120 mph at most times. Went to GM dealer, put new sensor on it, did not fix problem. Now have ordered a new cluster. Not sure if any of the other gauges work correctly. This is going to cost over $450 and from what I have read, hundreds of this year Envoy have this same problem. Our part was backordered, so that means there is a high volume requesting this same part. It should have been recalled a long time ago!!!

The headlights and dashlights flicker from bright to dim while driving and when braking. It's a dangerous situation to have other drivers as well as myself distracted by the constant flickering, but research seems to indicate that there is no fix for the problem and an overall lack of concern from GMC.

I have a 2004 GMC Envoy. The speedometer and instrument display console went bad on it yesterday (01/28/08) randomly. GMC acknowledges this problem with a recall with other GMC SUV's, but not the Envoy's. service shops also admit the Envoy's have this same problem and don't understand why GMC will not include the Envoy as part of the recall. Now, I am being asked to pay for costly repair.

I started my 2004 GMC Envoy and the speedometer was not working. When I started it, it went to 60 without even moving. Sometimes it stays at a speed no mater how fast or slow I go. If I am on a residential street, it says I am going 100. Also the clock just changed by it self. It went three hours behind. I have not repaired anything yet. I would like GMC to repair my vehicle at no cost because I know there was a GM recall for speedometers not that long ago.

Envoy 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 72,001 miles
Speedometer erratic; showing wrong speed almost all the time. 1000S of reports of this on internet in GM and Chevrolet SUVS of the same type. I have 2004 Envoy XL and this cost me around $600. This is a defect and needs a recall. I believe this same part is used on many of the GM and Chevrolet vehicles as there are even outside businesses who now fix this problem since there have been so many cases in gms. Please note that not all of the complaints are in the vehicle speed section but some are instrument panel section. There have been some recalls for some models but not my model. If it is truly the same part then why isn't my model included?

Trouble with instrument panel 1. tachometer not working for 1 1/2 years. 2. fuel gage not working right for over 1 year. 3. oil pressure gage went out not working at all 3 weeks ago. ( biggest danger ) 4. speedometer went out as of January 4, 2008 not working at all for one day. It is now working but showing wrong speeds. Could have accident because of wrong reading. I have found out the GMC has some recalls on the instrument panels. As of today 01/06/2008 no recalls for the following years. 2003-2008 GMC Envoy this is a inferior instrument panel and a danger to the public. My 2004 GMC Envoy should be on recall. Hope you can help. Number of failures 4. thank you thomas F. thompson P.S. under select complaint types. You have 4 listed to chose from. I am using ( vehicle ) my 1st problem started at 38,000 miles and my last at 54,000 miles. Speedometer not working right.

Envoy 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles
On 11/01/07 I noticed the speedometer acting erratic; it would stay on 10 to 20 mph. When I knew I was going faster. At other times it would creep up to 75 or 80 mph. And not go down when I slow down. Occasionally it would work fine. This went on about 3 weeks and I thought it might correct itself. It finally stopped working altogether coming to rest above 120 mph. On 12/07/07 I took my vehicle to the dealership. They said they would have to replace the whole interment panel at a cost of around $470. They also said if I didn't have over 60,000 miles on my car it would have been covered under the warranty. I had 62,492 miles on the day I took the car to the dealer.

Since car is new we continue to have melting issue with wiring and harness behind radio rack and areas that are affected in this instrument cluster. This has happened so many times GMC has extended the warranty on car to cover all of the car. It is again causing a problem, lights out on cluster, lighter inop, heater and A/C fans not always working.
