Vehicle's first engine began to smoke
heavily during start up the first week
we owned it. GM said it was defective
PCV. After that didn't fix it, they
finally replaced the motor. The
dealer's quality on this engine swap
was terrible. My test drive off the
dealer repai lot revealed a heavy
knocking sound from the passenger side
of new engine. GM had to replace
engine again and have aera rep
supervise the installation. I doubt
that Toyota or Honda would have had to
replace the motor twice!
We really use the midgate and hard
tonneau cover. We love the heated
power seats. My wife loves the
intimidation factor the Avalanche has
on other motorist.
