2008 GMC Envoy Owner Satisfaction - Consumer Reports
The GMC Envoy has a good basic design with roomy, quiet accommodations and a compliant ride. But handling is less than agile overall and sloppy at the limit. Braking isn't very good, either. We also found the front-seat-mounted safety belts uncomfortable. Stability control improves handling considerably in emergency situations.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Consumer Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How? Our survey data reveals whether, all things considered, owners would buy the same car again. The answer to that question is what determines our owner-satisfaction rating, which is a powerful piece of intel because it predicts how well a particular model will satisfy other owners.

What Owners Say

"Nothing better than a throaty V-8 sound and the accompanying performance level. Highway mileage is still 22 mpg."

Anonymous, WA (2008 GMC Envoy)

"very good acceleration with the V6 engine tight turning radius for an SUV of this size handles nicely, feel safe cruising at 80 mph on the highway"

Neil-Edward H., NJ (2008 GMC Envoy)


Includes seats, climate control, noise, and ride

What Owners Say

"Quiet and comfortable with power heated leather seats"

Daniel U., IL (2008 GMC Envoy)

"Best seats ever put in Mid price GM vehicle. Cannot match them 8 years later unless I go to $60,000 vehicles. Dealer service reps know that Envoy was one of the best vehicles GM has made in last 15 years. Owners won't trade unless forced to do so."

N S., NY (2008 GMC Envoy)

"Lot of wind noise even with the windows closed. Need to turn up radio to hear it"

Percentage of owners who would definitely purchase that same vehicle again. Owner-satisfaction Ratings are determined by the percentage of those who answered "definitely yes" to the question asked by the Consumer Reports Annual Auto Survey "Considering all factors (price, performance, reliability, comfort, enjoyment, etc.), would you get this car if you had to do it all over again?". If we don’t have sufficient data, a similar model might be used to form the owner-satisfaction score.
