2002 Chevrolet Avalanche Crew Cab 2500 4dr Crew Cab 4WD (8.1L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Not a bad truck. I had a K1500, and this is nicer than that truck, but still isn't as good as I could (should) be, especially considering the price. Workmanship/quality isn't nearly as good as it should be. I have upholstery coming unstitched, rattles and vibrations that can't be diagnosed, etc. Overall it isn't too bad though.


Favorite Features

The flexibility of the bed can't be beat. The hard, 3 piece cover is nice, as is the midgate feature. I also like the removable rear window, and steps and handles in the rear.


Suggested Improvements

2500 Avalanches should have towing accessories STANDARD! No towing mirrors, brake controller, etc. That's crazy. I have a $35,000. truck with $20. strap on mirrors. Workmanship sucks. Should come with a seamstress to fix the seats as they unstitch themselves!

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


Review

When I first got the Avalanche I knew this was going to be a good truck. It looks great from the inside and out. Lots of features and it stands out. There were lots of changes from 2002 to 2003 such as the dash, radio look, heated seats on your back, BOSE stereo, and the stereo controls on the newly designed steering wheel. The convert a cab is great. Didn't even know how to take it apart, with no manual took it apart in under 5 minutes and put it back together in 5 also.


Favorite Features

Leather, Sunroof, Convert a Cab, Power, Ride, Rubber Floor Mats


Suggested Improvements

The dashboard is very boxy. They have had the design since about 1995. Also some wood trim would be nice. BOSE sound system should also come standard.

Review

Have owned my Avalanche for a little over a year and have found it an excellent vehicle to meet my needs. I wanted a vehicle that could comfortably haul 5, tow a car trailer, and be used to carry clients to lunch. Ford SuperCrew was light on tow ability. I liked the looks of the Ram, but ride was harsh and the new Hemi was not out. With 15K miles, averages 14 around town and 17 highway. Very quiet confortable ride. Makes 5 hours on PA Turnpike an easy trip.


Favorite Features

Awesome ride for a truck, smooth 5.3L, seats comfort, North Face option gives a cool rugged look. Midgate gave me flexibility to haul 4x8 and lumber for projects. Rubber mat, rubber floor mats, hard bed covers offer great value.


Suggested Improvements

Better stereo, power rear window, tailgate lock control on key fob.

Review

This is a very versatile and fun vehicle with an exceptionally smooth ride. The covered box is very convenient for all-weather hauling, and 3-pc.cover is easily stowed in the bag provided. Every feature of the bed and midgate allow the user many options because of the different combinations of open or close, on or off, etc.


Favorite Features

Changeability of midgate and covered box. Side storage compartments with lights are excellent places to store the things that you would normally put in the trunk of a car, as well as tie- down straps and tarps.


Suggested Improvements

None.
