    Hi, everyone.

    I have a 2006 Denali envoy, and i am having the same problem, with the rear air suspension.. all of a sudden the car got soooo low to the ground. and i thought maybe i got to heavy and the car just went down on its own.. but now i am reading this forum and i see there are a lot of us having the same problem. Have you had any luck with taking to gmc and having the issue fixed. I am very discussed with this vehicle. I have so many problems with this car, it 's not funny. Has this issue been recalled???

    somebody please HELP. VERY FRUSTRATED!!!!!!

    My 2003 Envoy has a problem with the engine sputtering when I brake especially when moving at slower speeds. It seems to be worse when I am lower on fuel. There are also times when the engine dies when the car finally comes to a stop. It feels like a braking problem but I know it is something with the engine. The engine also revs as time and won't shift gears which makes me think transmission but its random and not happening all the time. The "check engine" light has been going on and off recently as well. Not sure if all of these issues are related. The car has about 70K miles on it. I have not brought it in for service yet.
  • My rear air suspension sometimes causes my 06 Envoy denali to go low to the ground. I can hear a noise when this happens. There is no heavy loads in the truck. What could be the problem. I only have 43,000 miles.

    I to have the same problem with my 06 Denali, as my rear suspension goes down to the ground, to take into the dealer they want to charge me about $2,000. to fix the problem.. When i spoke with a rep from GM they tell me that there is no recall on this issue. So tell me why are so many of us having a problem with the rear suspension on these models. I think we have to take this problem back to GM. and have them look into it. $2,000. is a lot. considering we had nothing to do with abusing the rear suspension.. and believe me we are not alone with this issue.

    Good morning engelhard2,
    I checked in my general information on the 2006 Envoy and did not see any information that would be helpful in troubleshooting at the moment. Have you ever had your vehicle evaluated at a dealership? If so, we're happy to follow up with them on this diagnosis.

    Best,

  • No. I am almost afraid to take it to the dealership, after reading some of these postings. It doesn't happen all the time. I was wondering if its safe to put it on the road. According to the manual when the vehicle sets up for some time, the rear end will go down but this is happening sometimes during the day after being parked for a short time.

    Why is so many of us having the same problem. I only have 43K miles.
  • You are absolutely correct. Why should we have to shell out that much money for a repair. It seems like GMC would admit that there are a lot of flaws in the 06 Denali.

    My concern is if I put it on the road, will it come back up if the vehicle is loaded down.

    I understand your hesitancy. If you do decide on working with your dealer, or if you would like for us to look into anything, please contact us via email at socialmedia@gm.com (include a summary of the situation and the last 8 digits of your VIN).

    Kind regards,

    I do have my 2006 Denali on the road, and the rear suspension, goes up sometimes, then lowers itself. even if the vehicle is loaded down it will still come back up, but I find that the ride is very rough. And I agree there is definetly something wrong with this model... It is pretty hard for me to believe that the rear air suspension on this vehicle could break down from simple wear and tear.
  • I too have a 2006 Denali, that is at the dealership right now getting repaired for the rear suspension air leaks. The dealer says it's the airbags that are leaking (which is the immediate response I have received from other shops) so it sounds like this is definitely a defect. The dealer says there is no recall on this problem. I'm wondering if it's a problem with the airbags leaking, is this a safety issue if the vehicle were to get into an accident? If it's such a common problem, how can we find out how many denali's have had this issue? I've seen another denali in town just like mine, rear end dropped to the ground. Very disappointed in this high end vehicle. BTW- the repair is going to cost over $600.
  • We hope that everything went well with your dealership and the repair on your Denali's suspension. If we can look into anything further for you, please send us more details at socialmedia@gm.com (include your name and contact information, the last 8 of your VIN, and the name of your dealership).

    I see you have the same problem with your DENALI, you mentioned that your vehicle is at the dealer right now.. Doesn't the dealership think that it is odd to have an issue with the rear suspension, i am sure that you were not the only customer to come in with this problem.. GM why aren't you taking resposibility for this problem!!!!!!!! There are serveral people having the same problem.... HOW CAN THE CONSUMER GET YOU TO REALIZE THAT THERE SHOULD BE A RECALL ON THIS PROBLEM, BEFORE SOMEONE GETS INJURED BECAUSE OF THIS PROBLEM!!!!!!! I need to bring my 2006 to the dealership too.....

    very dissappointed

    I bought a 2006 Envoy Denali on 8/10/12 and it broke down on Monday 8/13/12. The car alams and sensors went off and the stabilitrak turned off. I could only go 30 mph and could not accelerate. I took it to the dealer still running but they didnt diagnose it and the next day they realized the code did not save. They say now they can not recreate the issue...Very nervous about the car I just bought. And they notced the air bags for the compressor were leaking. They are fixing that...HELP
  • Good evening dkrenecki,
    We're sorry to hear about the alarm, sensor, and stabilitrak issue you had with your new-to-you Envoy. We understand that you visited your dealership on this already; if you would like for us to check into this further or if this issue happens again, please send us an email at socialmedia@gm.com with the following information so we can set up a Service Request: your name and Edmunds username, phone and address, the last 8 of your VIN and current mileage, and the name of your involved dealership.

  • The dealer replaced the throttle body assembly and the rear air springs. Lets hope this is all...If it happens again, I will email you!
  • A faulty camshaft position sensor or camshaft position sensor might give that symptom.
  • A faulty camshaft position sensor or crankshaft position sensor often will give those symptoms.
