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.

2006 GMC Envoy - fuel gauge shows empty regardless of how much fuel is in the tank. Since I have no idea how much fuel is remaining, I have run out of gas several times, including a couple on the interstate. The problem started around October of 2008, but costs almost $700 to fix, started at 37500 miles so it was just out of warranty, and there are hundreds of postings online about this problem stating it's a defect with the fuel pump.

2006 GMC Envoy, 59000 miles and the fuel gauge has stopped working. Have found many others that have the same issue. GM acknowledges a problem but will not fix.

I'm an owner of a 2006 GMC Envoy slt. Unfortunately, the fuel gauge no longer functions. At first, the gauge would swing between full, empty and half full. Now, it just lives at 'empty'. resetting the trip display after refilling at 220 miles is getting old and inconvenient. I don't like not knowing exactly how much gas I have - especially when I'm driving in areas where there isn't a gas station on every corner. Because this seems to be a recurring problem, it should be covered by GMC.

2006 GMC Envoy fuel gauge stopped working around 40K miles. Always shows to be empty with low fuel light always on. Have not fixed yet. I always reset trip meter in order to refill tank every 275 - 300 miles. Waiting on recall.

I own a 2006 GMC Envoy. I have experienced intermittent fuel gage failure. The dealership wants $600 + to fix the problem. After doing some investigation on the internet I learned that this is a common problem and GM may have a "silent recall" of this part. I believe this is a safety problem due to the possibility of running out of gas and becoming stranded in rural Iowa during inclement weather. I believe that GM should recall the part.

I've owned my 2006 Envoy for about a year when the gas gage kept saying that it was empty even though it was full. I had it fixed but it is upsetting I had to come up with the money to fix this problem myself. I find it interesting there are so many other complaints about this issue and there is nothing being done about it.

Failure of the fuel sending unit on my 2006 GMC Envoy and others GMC Envoy and Chevy trailblazers. A flood of information is available regarding this problem on the internet. Most can not understand the lack of a recall to fix this situation. Situation: Erratic or empty gas gauge reading even when the tank is full. A full tank reads empty right out of the gas station. The gauge moves up and down with no reliability. The reading is fluctuating the entire time spent driving when not reading empty. The problem occurred within a month of the warranty expiring.

2006 Envoy only has 50,000 miles and the flywheel is going bad which may lead to future problems with the transmission there is also a fuel gauge problem where I fill up the car completely and it still reads empty. To replace this would be $800 dollars!!! I have found other websites where other people who own this car are having the same problems. There needs to be a recall!!!!!!! this is ridiculous. Thank you for listening.

I own a 2006 GMC Envoy that was purchased in March of 2008. The vehicle worked perfectly until June of 2008, when the fuel gauge began behaving erratically. Anything less than 3/4 full tank was registering as "empty". at this time, February 2009, the gauge constantly reads "empty", even after filling up. I have seen numerous consumer complaints on automotive forums and the GMC website, however, no recall has been issued for the fuel float that causes the problem. I personally cannot afford $300 for parts and labor to fix this problem, and have been reduced to carrying paper and pencil to try and monitor my fuel consumption and mpg so I do not run out of gas in the middle of nowhere with two small children.

My 2006 GMC Envoy's gas gauge has been fluctuating from empty to full on fill ups for over 2 months and now it is stuck on empty even when tank is filled. My mechanic said it would cost $800 to replace the fuel sending unit and fuel pump. Many other owners have similar issues.

Envoy 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 56,098 miles
Starting in December 2007 every time I fill my gas tank the sensor light comes on and stays on, after a few miles the check engine light comes on. The gas gauge reads empty, then it will read something else. So I have to always reset my mileage so that I know how far I have went. This GMC is only 2 years old. It drives me nuts with this problem. It will finally reset to where the light goes off and the check engine light will go off. For a couple of days then I have to fill it again. I almost dread going to put gas in.
