I purchased a 2002 Avalanche a few months ago. I must say, WOW! I absolutely love it. Probably the most comfortable vehicle I have ever had. Thankfully the previous owner was very very nice to it. Great versatility for a full size truck. I absolutely am getting a newer Avalanche for my next vehicle. Don't believe what you read, this truck is absolutely great.
Suprisingly very smooth ride. Comfortable for even 5 adults to ride in.
