MALFUNCTIONING OF INSTRUMENT CLUSTER AS DESCRIBED BY THE DEALERSHIP. SPEEDOMETER DISPLAYS INACCURATE SPEED, OTHER READINGS ON PANEL FLIP-FLOP ALSO. ADVISED BY THE SERVICE ADVISOR THAT THIS WAS A NOTED DEFECT WITH GMC AND THEY HAD ALREADY STARTED REPAIRING LARGER GMC'S AND SHOULD GET AROUND TO MINE LATER IN 2008. YESTERDAY, GMC INFORMED ME OF A SPECIAL POLICY ISSUED FOR THE PROBLEM, BUT ONLY FOR SIERRAS AND YUKONS (7YRS 70,00 MILES). GMC TOLD ME THEY WERE NEVER NOTIFIED OF THE PROBLEM WITH THE ENVOY'S. I ONLY HAVE 56,000 MILES ON THIS CAR (FIRST OWNER). NOW THE A/C HAS GONE OF BY ITSELF TWICE THIS MONTH AND THE PRESET STATIONS HAVE VANISHED.

FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE

7/5/2008 - SCOTTSDALE, AZ
I COULD SMELL A GASOLINE ODOR AROUND MY 2003 ENVOY (45,860 MILES). TOOK VEHICLE TO COULTER OF TEMPE (AN AUTHORIZED GM DEALER) AND WAS ADVISED OF A LEAK AT FUEL INLET TO TANK PIPE AREA. WAS TOLD GAS TANK WOULD NEED TO BE REPLACED. GM HAS HAD A SIMILAR PROBLEM WITH THE 2003 ENVOY XLS AND ISSUED A LETTER DATED JUNE 2007 COVERING THE ENTIRE AMOUNT OF REPLACING THESE FUEL TANKS FOR 10 YEARS OR 150,000 MILES. THIS COVERAGE SHOULD BE EXTENDED TO ALL 2003 ENVOYS AND A POSSIBLE RECALL ISSUED AS THIS LEAK AT THE FUEL FILLER NECK SEAM AT THE TANK IS NOT EASILY IDENTIFIED UNLESS VEHICLE IS HOISTED ON A LIFT. THEY DID OFFER US A DEAL WHERE WE WERE CHARGED A WARRANTY DEDUCTIBLE OF $500, BUT I FEEL THIS REPAIR SHOULD HAVE BEEN COVERED IN ITS ENTIRETY.

6/26/2008 - CALIFON, NJ
SPEEDOMETER DOES NOT WORK ANYMORE. I CAN BE SITTING AT A STOP LIGHT AND THE SPEEDO WILL BE PEGGED AT 120MPH. OR WHEN DRIVING IT WONT MOVE AT ALL. SOMETIMES...I'LL START THE CAR, AND THE SPEED WILL BE SITTING AT 40 MPH. HAS BEEN HAPPENING OFF AND ON SINCE NOVEMBER 2007. THE DEALERSHIP & CUSTOMER ASSISTANCE (800-462-8782) WILL NOT HELP ME. THEY TELL ME I HAVE TO BUY A WHOLE NEW INSTRUMENT CLUSTER ($475+) TO RESOLVE MY PROBLEM. THIS IS A VERY COMMON ISSUE WITH THE FULL SIZE VEHICLES (2003 AND UP). GM HAS ISSUED SPECIAL COVERAGE ADJUSTMENT #07187 ( 9/28/2007) TO REPLACE , FREE OF CHARGE, THIS BAD CLUSTER BUT WON"T FIX THE SAME PROBLEM IN THEIR SMALLER SUV"S.
