I always loved the style of Avalanche, and made it a goal to own one. Well, I finally own one and love love love it! I had a 95 Nissan Pathfinder before, and it was ok, but this is the most comfortable ride ever. It was worth every penny. Maintainance is a little pricey, but so is everything for the new vehicles. Chevy warranties are pretty good too.
The luxury for the price. Heated seats, leather, climate control, auto everything, and the sunroof.
The cladding is a little hard to maintain. Especially in the winter with the salt from the roads.
