GMC Envoy owners have reported 57 problems related to wiper (under the visibility category).
When using the wipers, they will wipe ok for a couple of swipes and then get stuck and shimmy down the windshield. Sometimes they just stick in place. It doesn't matter what speed we go or if we are stopped.

While servicing my vehicle at an authorized gm dealership, I was notified of the recent recall regarding headlamps which get hot and can fail. It has been nearly 8 months since that recall was issued, and yet there remains no identifiable remedy or solution as to how they will resolve the issue and repair / replace the defective components. . Entitled to safe vehicles, I am unsure as to how or why gm would believe that 8 months to not even have announced a solution is an absurdity. At this point, the period of time in which the manufacturer has had to develop and implement a solution is simply unacceptable as a consumer. I am under the belief that their solution to the problem is simple, they are going let the vehicles age a few more years and hope by that time, additional vehicles requiring repair will no longer be on the road and the issue will magically go away. As owners of this vehicle, I am entitled to the remedy as promised under recall gm 14291, and I do not think that it is acceptable for manufacturers to sit on open recalls for vehicles currently on our roadways which have been already been identified as having a safety defect in need of defect replacement or repair.

My car was parked in the driveway of my home. My neighbor alerted me that my rear window exploded. I went outside and subsequently observed glass everywhere inside, on top, the bumper of the vehicle.

My driver side power window / door regulator assembly cable frayed and the window would not move up or down until repaired. This happened to the driver side door window in August 2014. Now in March 2015, being 7 months later the same issue has happened to the front passenger side door window / door regulator assembly. I use this vehicle for less than 5000 miles a year, I feel this issue needs to be looked in to for the defect of faulty cabling / poor quality. This will be the second time that I will pay out of pocket for the same issue within a year.

Following an independence day baseball game and fireworks display, I went to the parking lot to load my family and some personal belongings. I opened the rear hatch and felt a slight baulking on the right side. In the next fraction of a second a shot gun sound went off and the window exploded in my face raining heavy glass into the back of the car and the parking lot. Miraculously, I received only a minor cut across my eyebrow, but a large chunk was cut out of the thumb of my right hand for which I had to go to urgent care and may have to consult with a plastic surgeon as it heals/ scars in order to retain flexibility in my thumb.

Simply driving down a smooth road, no bumps, and rear hatch glass shattered. I've read hundreds of complaints about this happening to other people's Envoys. At first I thought somebody shot out my window because who has ever heard of a window just exploding for no reason. Well, apparently GMC found a way to make windows, "just explode", and then weasels their way out of paying to fix this embarrassment of american engineering. From what I've read GMC has refused all cases compensation for this problem, so I came here to voice my frustration because I don't have $795 to fix my truck. I am wondering if this problem should be considered for a class action lawsuit. My 1999 vw jetta was part of a class action lawsuit because the ground effect trim would get caught on parking blocks and cause damage, but this window exploding is a much more serious problem. So I will call GMC on Jan. 2 when offices open back up, and depending on how that goes I might call up a buddy who practices law to see what the chances are for a class action suit.
Wind shield wipers would go on . Now they won't go off. Engine light wont go off feels like the car is going to stall out. Mechanic said it will get worse and will start stalling out. I see a lot of complaints on these cars about the same thing I have going on. My gas gauge wont work. I brought my car for the recall for the drivers door last year and now my keys won't unlock the doors. Only the remote will open it. When I called about the doors and windows not working they said my VIN wasn't under recall I called you and you got it fixed for me. I think they need to check the electrical problems on the Envoys. I have the same complaints so something is wrong with these vehicle.
Vehicle wipers starting turning on when wipers were set to off. This problem has progressively gotten worse . It started as only intermittently and occasionally having the wipers turn on for a couple swipes and then shutting off. Now they (the windshield wipers) start swiping when the vehicle is started and you can hear the windshield washer pump running, the wipers will run until I turn the vehicle off. At times this is for 30 minutes or longer.
After six months having purchased this used vehicle from a local dealer, I noticed that the driver's door was not working properly, nor were the power window devices, controls, power locks and also the visibility of driver's rear window. I noticed that the door would overheat and sometimes I can smell an odor similar to when something is burning. I have taken the vehicle to a mechanic and finding the solution to the problem has been difficult. On June 2013, I read on the msn website that the GMC Envoys for 2006 and 2007 were being recalled (recall #13v248000) in regards to driver's master power window switch. Since I am having this same problem, with my 2003 Envoy, I called GMC and explained to her that I am having that same issue with my 2003 Envoy. She indicated that GMC would pay for the diagnostic fee labor even though my car's mileage was not under warranty and that the recall was only for 2006 & 2007 Envoys. She connected me to keisha kennedy for an appt. With balise the following day. She assigned a case number 71-1219059371. The following day, August 28, 2013, I went to my appointment at 11 am. And left my car. About an hour later, I get a call from GMC indicating to me that she was sorry, but that GMC could not cover the cost of diagnostic fee labor. I said, "that is not what you told me yesterday" and she replied, "I am sorry, I was not authorized to tell you that". I said to her, "I wouldn't have taken time off from work, ask for a ride, be without transporation if you had told me that before". I also said to her, "how can you tell me you are covering the cost yesterday and today change your mind". All she responded was, "I am sorry". I asked to speak to her supervisor by the name of michelle and the supervisor just said that her employee was not authorized to say to me that GMC would cover the cost. I still have the same safety issue.
Low beam relay (headlamp driver module (hdm) burned out--same thing happened 4-9-2015. This time melted the fan relay and fused the two relays together. 2006 & 2007 Envoys were recalled for the same identical problem. The hdm overheated and caused headlamp and daytime running lights to fail and not illuminate. GMC plans to charge approximately $800 for entire new set up because box is not sold without all relays. Was told possible further expense if electrical problems are found.
