2003 GMC Envoy XL 6 cylinder in line from North America
I bought this Envoy new Dec 2002, purchased an extended warranty, which I have never done before on a new vehicle.
Two wiper motors and rear-end replaced before 36,000 miles, transmission shortly after that.
Have had it to dealers from OK to Ca to determine why it sounds like fan-belt hitting shroud, no one could diagnose problem.
Last month the engine was surging while driving; took it to the dealer, said it was a sensor in the A/C, also had them check for fan belt noise, they said it was the tensioner, had them fix the sensor, but took to another shop for tensioner as the dealer's price was ridiculous, they said there was nothing wrong with it.
Now I was driving, and the service engine and reduced engine power went on - could only drive about 20 mph. Took to it the dealer; they said it is the clutch fan, to the tune of 750.00. 425.00 for the part. My son, who works for a parts distributor in the Midwest, says the part costs 200.00.
I bought my vehicle from the dealer where it is serviced, but after such rip-off, I will never buy another GM product.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
