"GM cars run badly longer than most cars run at all." That's what I think of whenever I see one of these making ugly noises but somehow going down the road.
The one with the roof panel that slides open was...novel. I'd like to see the dealer tech who still gets to fix that. (Also, nice job copying a 35y/o Studebaker design, GM.)
Otherwise, I got nothing. The SO's parents have one of these in EXT form. It's...a vehicle. There is nothing memorable about it.
I bought one 2 years ago for a Grand Canyon trip. I had just sold our 7 seater to my sister and was going to need something temporarily, so I bought a semi-rough Envoy XL with a 4.2 for $2100. It needed some A/C work and a window regulator, but it was easy work. Drove it to Arizona during the summer and got like 24 mpg. It's narrow and long, so it was hard to park because the turning radius wasn't great. It was comfortable and reliable, and I bought it home and promptly sold it for like $3800 with about 170k on the odo.
They're not perfect, but one of the best 3 row SUV's you can buy for the money, and you can tow with them too.
