Review of the 2003 Chevrolet Avalanche

  • Combining the comforts of a Tahoe with the practicality of a Silverado, the Avalanche is a crossover vehicle that creatively provides the best of both worlds.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Versatile and innovative cab configuration, strong V8 engines, substantial towing ability.

  • Cons

    Some cheap interior pieces, lifeless steering, limited drivetrain choices.

  • What's New for 2003

    The Avalanche gets numerous interior upgrades for '03 in addition to the midyear introduction of a "decladded" version that does without the oft-derided extensive lower body trim. Dual-zone climate control is now standard equipment on all models along with multistage airbags and a passenger airbag sensor. A redesigned instrument panel houses a more comprehensive driver information display; and an optional multifunction steering wheel puts climate, radio and trip computer controls right in the palm of your hands. New entertainment options include a Bose stereo system, XM Satellite Radio and a rear passenger DVD video system. Other new options include the StabiliTrak stability control system on 2WD half-ton models, adjustable pedals, and a fully automatic multizone climate control system.

Disappointed

by on
Vehicle: 2003 Chevrolet Avalanche 2500 4dr Crew Cab 4WD (8.1L 8cyl 4A)

My experience has been one of dissatisfaction. Knocking in the engine, oil consumption, irregular tire wear, flutter in the dash board below the windshield, grinding in the front end(drive Train).I have burned a qt. of oil every 1000 mi. since I purchased the vehicle, and the engine knock sounds like a diesel.Though not all vehicles are experiencing the problems I have, it appears a number of them are experiencing some of the problems I have when refering to the TSB quick look. Buyer Beware!!!

Great truck

Vehicle: 2003 Chevrolet Avalanche 2500 4dr Crew Cab 4WD (8.1L 8cyl 4A)

I really like this truck. We purchased it to pull our Airstream trailer which it has done flawlessly. Ours is Arrival Blue which is nice but I sure like the yellow. I don't expect to use the back seat access feature to the bed but really like the fold down backseat for our dog.




The 2500 is sooo much

I could NOT tell you how much I LOVE my truck! I tryed the smaller Avalanche 1500 first and really like it, but the 2500 just blew me away!! I could not sign the papers fast enough to get this baby in the garage. I can't imagine driving anything else. By far the coolest truck on the road. ( as far as I'm concerned) It Rocks~

A great combinaton of SUV and pickup all wrapped up into one. A truck that rides like a car on the highway and has all the features of comfort of a car put into a truck package.
