2006 Gmc Envoy Denali - 1GKES66M166- Cleburne, TX: October 6th, 2011
About three months ago the fuel gauge, after filling the tank, would read empty for a period of time. Then the gauge would read full, then it would go back to empty. This would continue for a short period of time and eventually the correct (i assumed) level would be shown until the next fill up. As time has passed, it takes longer for the gauge to finally settle down and read normally. I have now received a letter from gmc stating they are aware of the problem and will pay for half the repair cost. My question is that if this is a premature failure, as the letter states, why gmc is not responsible for 100% of the cost. The letter also states that the fuel level shown may read more than the actual level. Could lead to running out of fuel on the interstate, getting in an accident trying to get off the road, and/or injector damage.

2006 Gmc Envoy Denali - 1GKET63M162- Clinton, MD: September 19th, 2011
I bought a used 2006 gmc envoy denali with 69,000 miles in june 2010, by july i was replacing the air shocks on the right side of the vehicle. On about 7/28/2011 on the beltway where the speed limit is 65 i was in the far left lane approaching a left hand exit when my car stalled, i had run out of gas with no indication. I waited over an hour for someone to come put gas in my truck in about 100 degree tempature. I later ran out of gas on a back road coming to my house at night. Again no indicator light came on to let me know i was low on gas. Now the gas gauge floats between full and empty contionusly. This was a very dangerous and scary situation both times. My flashers were on the whole time and i had to change the battery. Now the air will not come out of the vents only the floor and defrost. But the most important thing is the gas gauge, i could have been involved in an accident both times. *kb

2007 Gmc Envoy Denali - 1GKES63M972- Fresno, CA: September 14th, 2011
At 38,000 miles on the my suv my gauge stopped working, and ran out of gas two times. I've had to keep an eye on how many miles i drive and fill it up every 250-300 miles. Also i've noticed that sometimes my brake pedal stalls for a quick second. I love my vehicle but very disappointed in the problem it has in its early years and to find out the there are hundreds if not thousands of people that have this same problem and gm wont issue a recall on there vehicles. It is very unsafe to drive not knowing how much gas you still have in the tank. *kb

2006 Gmc Envoy Denali - 1GKES63M862- Texas, TX: August 16th, 2011
Rear air shocks that bled down after sitting for extended periods of time. Took to dealer for evaluation and was informed that the air shocks needed replacement. Was also informed that normally the air compressor is replaced also because it is the cause of the leaking. I decided cost was too great so i chose to add springs in place of rear air shocks and was informed that the air compressor would continue to function. Now the air compressor does not work, took back to dealer to find out what the problem is and was informed that once the rear air shocks are removed the air compressor is disabled. *kb

2006 Gmc Envoy Denali - 1GKES63M562- Arizona, AZ: July 18th, 2011
Fuel sensor failure in the gas tank. Causing the fuel tank to read empty when full, causing the suv to stall when the tank is full, causing the check engine light to come one. This is a safety issue. *kb

I've got a 2006 gmc envoy and the gas gauges never reads full. It's always readying either empty or full. I've been dealing with this for about 4 months now. Hoping that something would come of this before i just go out and have someone fix it. My check engine light is on due to this problem. Thanks! *tt

2006 Gmc Envoy Denali - 1GKES63M662- Scottsdale, AZ: July 4th, 2011
Fuel gauge is not working properly on my vehicle. It stays on "e" when there is plenty of gasoline in the car. There have been several complaints about this that i have seen on websites. Occasionally the gauge will move up but then go back to "e". I went to dealer and they said it is a bad fuel senor gauge which is in the gasoline tank. Seems like this is a common issue and could cause other problems. The fuel gauge has been like that for over 6 months, as the cost was astronomical and i believe there should be a recall. Additionally, recently my oil pressure gauge has shown the max amount and then last night it went down to the lowest amount on the instrument panel. It goes back and forth from high to low and the oil pressure low light comes on the instrument panel and then goes off. It says to stop engine. There does not appear to be anything physically wrong with my engine and i will be taking it to the dealer tomorrow to confirm that. I believe both of these issues are caused by a faulty instrument panel or electrical system included in gm's models. I have a family member with an older gmc suv with similar issues and they also had issues with a gmc truck they used to have but got rid of it, due to the malfunctions. Seems like a very common issue that should be resolved by ge.

2006 Gmc Envoy Denali - 1GKET63M262- Piscataway , NJ: May 23rd, 2011
The problem is with my 2006 gmc envoy denali edition. About january 1, 2011 i received gas at a shell gas station. After receiving fuel the fuel gauge remained at e and did not g to f signaling a fuel tank. Every time i refill the tank the gas needle swings back and forth between f and e. Around half a tank the needle drops to e. The fuel gauge is not reading accurately and has caused the truck to stall once while driving. The check engine light is constantly on. I have not done any repairs because i've been told the fuel assembly has to be replaced which is a costly repair. To prevent the truck from running out of gas while driving i've been monitoring the trip meter and going by the gas mileage.

2006 Gmc Envoy Denali - 1GKET63M662- Crown Point, IN: March 3rd, 2011
Fuel level sensor failed at just over 52,000. Miles. From my research this seems to be a recurring problem with many 2006 gmc or chevrolet vehicles from the same year range 2005 to 2006. The recommendation from the dealership was "if you don't want to pay the $500. 00 plus repair estimate, just do what many other people are doing and reset your trip meter at every fill up. Look to re-fuel between 250 and 300 miles. " in my research i discovered a person whose vehicle did the same exact thing. He was using the trip meter as the gauge and even with fuel in the vehicle, he was left stranded in an interstate due to an entire fuel system failure. Should this happen to a family during inclement weather there could be serious safety situations. In light of the fact that the vehicle that we own was priced at $38,000. 00 plus msrp,i would expect that the fuel sending unit would perform beyond the 50,000 mile range. I'm sure, by now, that your organization has heard from other gm owners about this same situation. I am interested in your response.

- the contact owns a 2006 gmc envoy denali. There was a vibration in the vehicle when the gas pedal was applied while traveling between 30 and 40 mph. The vehicle would also vibrate at any speed. It felt and sounded as if it needed to shift gears, as in a manual vehicle, but was in the wrong gear. It was involved in a crash in november 2006. Two dealers stated that there was a technical service bulletin that referenced the failure, but there was nothing they could do to correct it. When engaging the brake the vehicle would move forward and a noise could be heard. The noise frequently occurred after a quick stop. This failure had occurred during the same period of time. The dealer diagnosed the failure, and stated they have repaired the noise, but it continued to occur. The current mileage was 14,000, and the failure mileage was 13,118. *ak
