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
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.
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
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
Leather, Sunroof, Convert a Cab,
Power, Ride, Rubber Floor Mats
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.
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.
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.
Better stereo, power rear window,
tailgate lock control on key fob.
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.
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.
