im very happy with my new 03 avalanche..
i had a 99 silverado Z71 ext cab.
previous to this avalanche and a 96
chevy silverado before the 99.. im a
chevy person and buy thier product for
the dependability.. in my business i
need something that will handle the
mileage and the weather.. having 2
growing boys and a dog just as big i
wanted a new vehicle for room but still
have my truck space for work and camping
supplies... (the avalanche has a tent
and air matress that can be purchased
for it.. which to me is a good
investment.. all in all, its a good truck...
the tent and air mattress for the bed of
somehow make the plastic molding along
the bottom of the doors and rocker
panel, close up against the bottom of
the door instead of having it exposed to
the elements.. this way dirt and grim
wont get up in between the door and the
molding and create rust...
Gutsy SUV combo, many uses. Will fit in
most gargages at home. Solves trade off
of long length with midgate.Owned my '03
Z71 Avalanche since December 2002,
equiping with Convenience and Personal
Security Packages, Sunroof, Leather and
HD Tow Pkg. Best vehicle I've even owned
in over 30 years of driving. Solid and
rugged. Chevy did something unique with
the Avalanche. If you're not accustom
to larger SUV's or pickups this may not
be the vehicle for you. However, if you
want something tough but comfortable and
can climb into the vehicle, you found
it. "Like A Rock" -- I love my Avalance.

Offer better tires than Goodyear (may
improve steering and braking performance
which could be better), better gas
economy without performance sacrifice
I have always been a truck consumer. I
had overlooked the Avelanche in the
past thinking it was a gimick vehicle.
After driving it and really looking at
all it has to offer, I am hoping that
in three years when I need to replace
this vehicle there will still be
another one available. I love this
truck and all of its features.
I like that they offer many of the
sterring wheel controls that you would
find in a Caddilac. I also find the
ride to be outstanding for a truck.
I have the sport cloth and I am
dissapointed that it does not have
lumbar support. I would add this to
all future models
Siyle, comfort, useability, size and
all around good looks. I chose not to
include the add-on plastic, it looks
tackey and has no use. I have been
delighted with the ride and power. I
purchased the 66 towing package and the
best seats. I am one happy camper.
