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


Review

This vehicle has been used to tow our show car all over the country and hasn't missed a beat. Storage is one of the best features. We will be looking at the new version when it becomes availiable.


Best Features

Storage and security are the biggest items we like


Worst Features

More power, it's OK now but that would make this vehicle even more pleasant to live with

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


Review

I am a new/used Avalanche owner, and I am so happy with my purchace. Somebody pinch me. I traded in a '99 Tahoe, which I was very happy with, but we were approaching 100,000 miles, and hubby said it was time to trade it in. I only test drove Avalanches, because I liked the size and interior of my Tahoe, but would like the versatility of the box for bikes, fishing poles, etc. Also love the look. Love the zip, steers like a car, so so happy.


Best Features

Stereo rocks, looks hip and sporty, drives well, dual climate control.


Worst Features

Every Avalanche we test drove whined in 4WD. We were told it was an Avalanche thing. Also would like to be able to unlock the tailgate with my keyless or from inside.

Review

This vehicle does it all and looks good doing it. Doesn't beat you up on long drives. Pulls heavy loads with ease 2 horses in a 16 ft. stock trailer no problem. Zero mechanical problems love the engine it even sounds strong. Interior is very comfortable and has toys everywhere. Dual zone temp control works like a champ.


Best Features

You will love the ride of a truck this huge and the covered bed makes life easy. All my friends like the rear cargo storage pockets they are very deep and can hold cold beverages with ice. The tilting rear mirror option is pretty cool. The sub takes the stereo above the rest.


Worst Features

Make the tail gate lock electric with the doors. Open door warning for the tailgate. Can't tell when it is down and can't hear it if it falls down going down the road. Take out the rake looks better setting level. Through in a 20 inch rim option and a bigger sub for the stero.

Review

I had an F150 before the Avalanche. The Avalanche's ride and quietness rivals that of a quality sedan. Bose stereo is incredible. Love the midgate and what it allows you to do. No other truck can do what this truck does. I've used this feature several times and am glad I had this vehicle. A negative would be having to move the fronts seats foward to allow the rear seat to fold down to fully lower the midgate. A removable rear seat headrest would solve the problem. I now have 71000 miles and have yet to do anything but normal oil changes. Brakes are original still. Still love the truck


Best Features

Smoothness of ride and quietness and the functionality of the midgate.


Worst Features

Make use of the midgate without having to move the front seats forward. Fuel module went out at 80mph, shutting down EVERYTHING. Coasted to the shoulder and towed it to dealer. 3 days and $850 later, they found and repaired the problem. No answer on how or why it occurred. Ext. warr. next time!
