First of all I must confess, I used to
hate trucks and SUVs. After my
purchase of the Avalanche, I must
confess I really fell in love with it.
A lot of people complain about the
fuel economy and the exterior styling,
but I love the styling and buying the
truck knowing the fuel economy, so
that should not be the consideration
factor. The ride is excellent even
with the z71, the usefulness is
amazing with the convert-a-cab, and
most importantly, it is such a fun
vehicle to drive. I would recommend
this truck to anyone without
Convert-a-cab, fun factor, comfortable
ride, able to haul so much of my junk
and still seats five, side storage
boxes, believe it or not, styling!
Torque management makes the truck real
sluggish off launch (I am still a
performance oriented), interior
squeaks and somewhat cheap looking for
a $35k+ vehicle.
