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.

My fuel gage suddenly stopped working on my 2007 GMC Envoy. It read that I had 1/4 tank left, so headed to the gas station on a city street. I turned the Envoy off, for about a 15 minute stop, and when I turned it back on, the gage said it was empty. I filled the tank, and it still said it was empty, and the light is on. About 25 miles later, the gage popped up to 1/4 tank, but quickly dropped back down to read as empty again. The light stays on now. All other gauges on the dashboard work properly. The check engine light also came on, and is still on. I made sure my gas cap was on properly, and it was. I just purchased this vehicle on 12-30-15, so I do not know if there were any previous issues. My 2007 Envoy had 61,061 miles on it when this occurred, on 3-4-16.

February of 2014, gas gauge started to go haywire. After approximately 100 miles, needle of gas gauge goes to empty and low gas indicator light comes on. November of 2013, passenger air bag indicator light stays on. Does not matter if seat is empty or occupied. July 2011, right/front window regulator cable broke-replacement cost me $340. At this time shop found that front differential case leaking. This was replaced at no charge. Have not owned a GM product in over 15 years, now I know why. Come on GM stand behind your products, no matter what year they were manufactured. You claim that your vehicles are on the road for years and years, really...kind of hard to drive and trust a vehicle that does not function properly.

I was at a stop light and when I pressed on the gas the vehicle stalled. I had to have a tow truck come and give me gas to get me started. This is ridiculous. Now I have a check engine light on because of the stalling cause gunk to get in certain engine parts. I am extremely upset and do not think it is fair that the driver has to pay for 50%. GMC should pay for 100%. period.

I have a 2007 GMC Envoy. The fuel gauge reads normal after a fill up and then soon drops to empty. It does not give an accurate reading of fuel in the tank and the low fuel light is usually on. The check engine light is also on. It seems that this is the most common complaint among Envoy owners with NHTSA (note there are 5 other name plates under which this vehicle was sold). I have called GMC and they claim no knowledge of the problem. They offered to help me contact a dealer, but were unable to reach one. I called the selling dealer on my own. The service adviser seemed to know what I was talking about but was non-committal. The defect started after the warranty period expired due to time, but not mileage. Finally I have always considered this an annoyance but I recently changed my opinion on that. My wife, who drives my kids around, pointed out that if she runs too long without topping off or if unknown to her, her fuel mileage declines she very well could run out of gas and be hit by a vehicle behind her. There would be no warning to her or to the vehicles behind her ie no brake lights to warn that she is stopping. Of course there would also be a loss of steering and brakes. In my mind this is a serious safety concern and it should be investigated. If GM is unwilling to fix the problem and NHTSA rules that they should not have to, at a minimum they should be required to notify owners of the need to fix the issue and the safety reasons why.

I have purchased an 07 GMC Envoy 9/2011. I have encountered multiple issues with the fuel gauge after I would fill up my tank, within minutes after leaving the gas station, fuel gauge would float from full to half of tank to empty. I did reach out to GMC and customer service advised they will only cover 50% of the repair, why not 100% of repair cost.. this should be taken care of my the GMC.ugh but what I don't understand how is that some consumers are able to get GMC to cover the complete repair.

We bought this vehicle 2 months ago and it is a 2007 Envoy. After doing research this vehicle has a history of the gas gauge going out of it. The dealership and GMC should be fixing this not the consumer. It is despicable that they do not consider this a safety recall. I should not have to pay half after only owning the car for 2 months. The dealership and GMC knew that this is an issue and refuses to pay for it. Someone needs to do something about this!!!

The contact owns a 2007 GMC Envoy. After refueling the vehicle the contact noticed that the fuel gauge was providing an erroneous reading of empty. The fuel and check engine warning lights were also illuminated on the instrument panel. The vehicle was not taken to the dealer for diagnostics or repairs. The contact stated that later, the tire pressure warning light also illuminated although the tire pressure was accurate to specifications. The vehicle was not repaired. The approximate failure mileage was 28,000.

Envoy 6-cyl

  • miles
Nearly 2 weeks ago I noticed the gas gauge acting up. I'd fill the tank, and within a mile or 2, the gauge will drop to E, and the light will come on, bell will sound. This happens constantly, the gauge is showing 1/2 full, then empty, then 1/4 full. At any given time, I have no way of knowing how much fuel is in my tank. I am afraid that I will run out of fuel while driving my kids to school or on the interstate. I have researched the problem a on the internet and have found a lot of people with the same problem. I firmly believe there should be a recall for this severe problem before someone really gets hurt.
