Should have read ALL reviews before
buying. Water Management System does
not meet my needs for dry cargo space.
Tried to salvage vehicle investment
with Snugtop/GM XUV cap. X = eXpensive,
but would be worth it if it kept water
out. It doesn't. Snugtop sales said "Of
course it's watertight"; now service
says "weather resistant not
waterproof"; no other response to
dealer request for help. Have owned
truck 33 days (25 with rain), 500
miles. Am trading it in tomorrow.
Performance item: auto. transmission
slow to downshift (book says to floor
it!), but may be normal; have had
manual transmissions for 35 years.
Cover that keeps water out of cargo
box. Although I don't really care now.
My daily driver, inherited at 89k; now 120k. Constant electrical problems. Wheel/steering shimmy. Tailgate cables broke. Electrical: tach and fuel gauge occasionally misread, reduced engine power comes on on cold starts and not as over-heating protection; AC comes on in recirc mode, rear door locks only work manually and they keep blowing unlock relay fuse, difficulty starting-starter may be wearing out. Lumbar support is terrible for drives over an hour, but who can afford to drive that far anyway? Ring and pinion gears needed replacement at 115K. I've read tons of problem blogs regarding electronics. Is this truck a lemon?
Locking boxes and tailgate. Versatile vehicle and interesting concept. Engine power.
Too large, bulky, rear visibility, mpg. Here's some advice GM:Fix the problems you know you have. General electrical sys, e-brake; build reliable vehicles and you won't have to worry about foreign comp. Dealers can then make money on sales, not constant repairs and your consumers can believe in you.
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.
Sorry I ever saw one of these things.
Seemed pretty cool at first but
quickly got ugly. Sucks gas like my
old Hemi 'Cuda of 1970 vintage. Poor
build quality and generally worthless
design. Not really a truck and not
really an SUV. It gets increasingly
uglier every day and the plastic trim
everywhere, inside and out, won't stay
attached. Will dump it on the used
car market soon. Certainly, Dodge and
Ford have the edge.
Acually purchased July5,2001. I love
this truck and am fixing to buy another
one. Only one major problem. I use
truck off road a lot where there are no
roads. When I first got I had trouble
with the plastic coating on the front
bumper. Ever time I touched something
or pushed over a small bush or tree the
bumper split . Chevolet would not
repair or give me a solution to the )I
immediately designed a 2-inch tube for
a "bush pusher" to be mounted in front
of this plastic bumper. It cost me
about $5.00 for material, 15 minutes
labor and my company epoxy power coated
Make a $25.00 "bush pusher" for the
front end as an add on and make it "off
