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 4.2L

2014 had to drop $3000 in transmission twice to be rebuilt and $700 in repairing the coil pack. Has been working up until August the truck shut down for about three weeks then had to drop another five on replacement of a starter and a month later the truck stops and gauges all shut down smells like something is on fire. I've never had to put so much money into an vehicle. Seems like every other month something going on with this truck. Just found out there's a recall on this truck. And this is my only transportation for me and my 11 year old daughters to get trapped in this truck! It's very scary, while driving and everything starts to shut down. Please tell me what to do. Can not afford another one right now. This truck has been giving me problems for the last three years.

Envoy XUV V8

  • Automatic transmission

There is some sort of electrical drain that has been going on for a few years. Battery fine, starter fine, alternator fine, yet I almost always have a dead battery. Keep replacing the batteries; that's not the problem. Battery tender now not even helping. Mechanics and dealership are stumped. Need to know if anyone else has had and fixed this issue.

Oil leaks out but not on my driveway. Must be burning out. Constantly have to top off. Air bags in suspension system leaked; after work each day the back end was almost touching the ground. Sun roof died. Back door won't open. Curb view mirrors won't work anymore. Retractable roof gets stuck 1/2 way open/closed. Static from right speakers occasionally. Center window won't go back up. Really sick of this expensive, always something breaking, POS. My last car lasted 14 years - would probably still be fine if some idiot hadn't wrecked into me. I was planning to keep this Envoy (purchased brand new) forever. Such a disappointment.
