While on paper the Envision checks many boxes for features, user interaction with the vehicle is awful and dated. Pressing the button to change the radio is a comical affair, it takes so long to change the station that you can forget that you pressed the button. The glass buttons

Theres a shimmy/shaking when accelerating. Its very annoying & the dealership says GM is aware of the problem. However, being aware is not fixing it. It drives great & is very comfortable. The noise is more pronounced on the highway than what I expected.

Adaptive cruise control [ACC]works fine if the vehicle camera sees another vehicle in its path, however if it does not the cruise control will shut off. To correct this you must stop ,shut the vehicle off and restart it or drive for many miles before it will kick in again.
