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


Review

The top parking light housing are like a piece of candy. the inside clamp that you snap the light in breaks super easy. Also the main driving light has a silver cap on the inside housing that falls off from the inside and eventually blows the inside bulb out. i'm writing this because something has to be done because this is my third top light housing that broke. This is my first main light housing that broke.


Favorite Features

the transformable pickup. you can do all types of things with it its great. i even found a custom speaker box that fits in the midgate area.


Suggested Improvements

shorten the antena. re-enforce the inside of the main driving light housing so that the inside doom doesn't break off inside of the light it self. Also make the top parking light inside where you clamp the light in stronger so it doesn't break of with the least pressure.

Tranny and drive line pops,dangs and jerks carnival ride! I'm going bankrupt on fuel, trading for Ford or Dodge ASAP!!

Review

I bought my avalanche in june of 2003 at 2 years old the transmission went out and it doesn't jet out like it used to. Then it leaks water inside because it got hailed on and now its messed up so i think it might have shorted my electrical system because my airbag light came on. Then my passenger window recently went out so.

Review

I gave up my 2001 Toyota Tacoma d-cab for a used Z-71 with 50,000 miles over 3 years ago. For a family of 5, the usability of the back seats is second to none. Where the Toyota 3.4L V6 screamed to tow my boat, the Avalanche handles it like nothing. The flexibility of the mid-gate is terrific. The bed tonneau panels are easy to remove and have remained water tight. The truck has a smooth ride on the road but can still perform off-road. Now I have 87,000 miles and only problem has been the rear power door locks have frozen up and need to be opened manually.


Favorite Features

Overall comfort, mid-gate w/ window storage, locking tonneau panels, locking storage along bed with grab handles


Suggested Improvements

Gas mileage of 12.5 - 13 in the city, 17-18 on the highway.
