Vehicle
2003 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 4dr Crew Cab Rwd (5.3L 8cyl 4A)
Review
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?
Favorite Features
Locking boxes and tailgate. Versatile vehicle and interesting concept. Engine power.
Suggested Improvements
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.
