2002 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 4dr Crew Cab 4WD (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I bought my truck new, I now have 316K miles on my truck and I still love it, you would never know this truck has so many miles on it, it still looks and runs like new,of course we've taken good care of it, from what I understand they don't make the Avalanche anymore and I guess I know why because they just keep driving on and on with no problems.


Favorite Features

The crew cab yet you can make it into a full size truck bed, seating is comfortable,everything is great


Suggested Improvements

None

2002 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 4dr Crew Cab 4WD (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Bought my Avalanche with 12K miles in 2003, it now has 167K and going strong. Considering the miles, other than routine things like, brakes, shocks, oil and tires, this truck has broken down very little. I had some front end work done, pitman arm and ball joints at about 100k, and a knock sensor at 150K. I replace the water pump at 150K because the gasket was leaking and I had to remove it to do the gasket. The original brakes lasted 100k. Still on the original alternator, radiator, exhaust etc.


Favorite Features

The side panels and overall look of the truck. Very comfortable ride for trips to the cabin, even drove to Aspen CO from Minnesota. It tows, hauls and gives a nice ride.


Suggested Improvements

The drivers seat is junk, kills my back after two or three hours.

Review

This vehicle has been nothing short of great. It's dependable and looks great. The only problem I ever had was the front bearings at 92k. I'm ready to purchase another soon and looking forward to another great vehicle


Suggested Improvements

Overhead console with dvd player

Review

I had a 2002 and put 200k on it b4 I sold it. Never had a problem other than a plugged sock in the fuel pump from dirty fuel. never rattled, squeaked. flexed. I towed the heck out of this truck and changed oil at 10k to 12k miles. after about 200k was using 1 qt in between changes. I now have a 2007 w/ 130 and it's even better.
