2003 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 4dr Crew Cab 4WD (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

This truck was great until 18 days after I bought it. I heard the horn and went out to find the interior in flames!.. The fire bureau said it was a short in the dash and 17 days later , I still am waiting for GM, Chevrolet or my dealer to give me any word on what they are going to do for me. They have been absolutely no help at all!!


Favorite Features

The ride was great, the looks were great, the room inside was great.


Suggested Improvements

I would not park this in a garage until this is investigated. It would be nice if GM had even sent a letter saying their working on it!

2003 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 4dr Crew Cab Rwd (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Great truck/SUV fills both perfectly. Holds 5 comfortably, and converts to fit 4"X 8" sheets in under a minute, and only take the #3 panel off to carry home your lawnmower Side storage great for stuff and as a cooler. Great ride. Almost bought a F-150 crew cab but this out shines it all the way.


Favorite Features

Mid-gate, side storage,leather seats.


Suggested Improvements

Better storage for top panels.

2003 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 4dr Crew Cab 4WD (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I bought the "without body hardware" model and what a nice change it is! This has so far been one of the nicest riding,running,and looking vehicles I have ever owned.So far absolutely no problems with my Avalanche. Great dealer service and honest advice.


Favorite Features

Fold down midgate, removable back window,hard bed cover


Suggested Improvements

I think Chevy would sell even more of these trucks if they only offered the no body armor version......

2003 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 4dr Crew Cab Rwd (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

This vehicle is a homeowners dream come tru. Functions as a very nice comfortable car most of the time, but you can move a refrigerator or haul trash to the dump if you need to. Go to "chevyavalanchefunclub" on the web to find more than 8000 happy owners. That's the best site for all sorts of Avalanche info. I would recommend this truck to anyone. Best turning radius of any crew cab, shortest wheelbase, longest bed of any crewcab except duelies. Parks like a car!


Favorite Features

Of course the utility. Stylish, gets lots of second looks. Not just another box on wheels. Your family wil love it. Kids think you're cool. Gotta get the steps because of its height. XM is fun.


Suggested Improvements

Builtin computer navigation. Onstar is not as good. Backup object sensors would help a lot. Otherwise pretty much perfect.

Review

Chevy did EVERTHING right on this baby. Positioning of the controls, comfort, lotsa interior room & it rides and handles so smooth its like driving a car, has full sized truck bed space and the design lets it stand out from any truck on the road.
