GMC Envoy XL Guides

Six Things to Know about the GMC Envoy XL

  • The GMC Envoy got its name from the French word "envoye" which directly translates to "messenger." The GMC Envoy XL, on the other hand, is an extended version of the standard Envoy SUV with a third seat row to accommodate more passengers. The nameplate started as a commemoration to the luxury trim of GMC Jimmy, an earlier SUV model from the make.

  • The GMC Envoy XL received considerable number of awards and recognitions from automobile critics throughout its production years such as Motor Trend's Sport/Utility of the Year for 2002. It also made its way to different lists including the 2005 IntelliChoice Top Ten Lowest Maintenance Cost in Class List and Consumer Guide's Recommended Buy for years 2003 and 2004.

  • In 2005, luxury trims of the standard GMC Envoy and GMC Envoy XL were unveiled-the GMC Envoy Denali and GMC Envoy Denali XL respectively. The introduction of these trims is considered a crucial step forward in producing more comfortable and luxurious SUVs. The GMC Envoy Denali XL was also praised for its smooth handling and quiet cabin. It can also tow 6,100 lbs of cargo.

  • The GMC Envoy XL made a cameo appearance in the 2010 feature-length documentary The Parking Lot Movie. The film revolves around a group of parking lot attendants who are faced with different customers that range from drunk, rude, vandals, and cheapskates. The movie shows how the attendants examine different aspects of human behavior.

  • General Motors made various versions of the GMC Envoy line with the process called badge engineering. This means that the design and engineering of the GMC Envoy, Envoy XL, and Envoy XUV were reproduced under different makes. The Envoy made way for the Chevrolet TrailBlazer, Saab 9x7, Isuzu Ascender, Oldsmobile Bravada, and Buick Ranier.

  • The GMC Envoy XL was discontinued in 2006 when the Oklahoma City Assembly plant closed in February 20, 2006. The Envoy XL was replaced with the GMC Acadia in 2007. The Acadia proves to be a ground-breaking model as it is the first crossover SUV from GMC as well as the make's first vehicle with a unibody frame.

GMC Envoy XL Problems

The GMC Envoy XL is the extended wheelbase version of the standard GMC Envoy. It is also the GMC counterpart of the Chevrolet TrailBlazer. The SUV boasts of a standard four-wheel Anti-lock Braking System as well as driver and front passenger airbags, earning it a four-star rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Despite the safety features in the model, it is still prone to various problems that are reported by owners in the past.


Steering

A common problem with the GMC Envoy XL involves the power steering system wherein owners report difficult or extra effort in turning the vehicle. This is caused by a power steering hose that is not compatible with the SUV. As a result, rapid turning can break the hose and cause a fluid leak. This results in irregular power steering and power break assists. In worst case, the leak may be sprayed into a hot engine and catch fire.

In 2005, General Motors did a recall regarding the issue. Dealers were made to inspect affected units for problems with the steering hoses. Damaged hoses were replaced for free. A reported 123,592 units were affected by this problem.


Locks

Another issue that is reported by a lot of GMC Envoy XL owners is latch problems wherein their hatch latches do not lock well. This is a result of corrosion due to road debris and other contaminants from the weather. General Motors saw this as a security issue wherein a passenger might fall out from the rear of the vehicle while on the road.

In October 2005, General Motors made a recall wherein the lower part of the latch was sealed to prevent entry of contaminants. The latch mechanism was also inspected for free. The recall was open to 98,007 unit owners.


Visibility

A lot of GMC Envoy XL owners complain about their windshield wipers. The problem ranges from wipers that do not operate, wipers that cease operation while being in use, and wipers that do not turn off. General Motors pointed out the issue to be caused by the presence of water or other contaminants inside the wiper modules, causing a short circuit or corrosion. Needless to say, this is a security issue that can result in a crash depending on the weather the GMC Envoy XL is driven in.

Fluid Changes that Your GMC Envoy XL Needs

Your GMC Envoy XL is one big car. And it just goes to saying that it is also going to need a bit of effort in ensuring that it runs flawlessly and efficiently. Aside from the regular maintenance checks, you should also take note of the fluid changes your car needs. Here are fluid changes you should check to keep your GMC Envoy in pristine condition.

  • Have an oil change at least once a year.

Your engine oil needs to be flushed out and replaced at least once every year. Yes, only once every year and not every 3,000 miles, which is a common misconception. You need to flush out the oil to ensure that the fresh, new one you would be putting in will not be contaminated with the dirt and debris from the current one. Clean oil is vital to how your engine works and ultimately, the overall performance of your car. So don't forget to check up on your oil levels every month and refill them accordingly.

  • Keep tabs on your transmission fluid

Just like the engine oil, you should also check your transmission fluid every month. Take note of its color; it should be red and not brown, and definitely, it should not be giving off a burnt smell. If it already smells burnt, then you need to replenish it right away. And while you're at it, check for the transmission fluid level as well. If it has gone low then you need to get your car to a mechanic and have it checked for leaks because your transmission fluid shouldn't be losing volume, only quality.

  • Keep your coolant within the prescribed level.

Adhering to the prescribed level of engine coolant is vital if you want to avoid an engine overheat and getting yourself stalled in the middle of the road. So make sure to check on it at least twice a year: just before summer starts and again before winter. And if it does become low, then refill it with the same coolant you're currently using. Don't just pour some tap water into your radiator, or use a different kind of coolant. Because each type of car needs a specific antifreeze and using outside the prescribed type could cause your radiator and engine to malfunction.

  • Replenish your brake fluid.

As with the other car fluids of your car, your brake fluid also gets contaminated and degrades over time. Replenishing it isn't a question of if, but of when. If you're starting to have some trouble putting your car to a stop, then check the condition of your brake fluid. If it has already turned from a golden color into brown, then you have to replace it already. Don't delay replenishing it because if you continue using the degraded brake fluid, there's no guarantee that your brakes would function properly, putting you and everyone on the road with you in serious danger.
