2004 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 4dr Crew Cab 4WD (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

We are having to replace the brakes every 20,000 miles. Dealer says that is normal. GM says they stand behind dealer. Would be unsafe to stand in front because brakes don't work. At same visit, tech says brakes shot, service manager says brakes ok. Three months later, brakes and rotor have to be replaced. GM says believe dealer? Two different stories, how can they believe both? I will never buy another GM product no matter how much I like the design. Nice to look at, practical design does not get me where I am going. If GM blindly accepts whatever the dealer says, I do not trust them and will no longer deal with them. No tears from me in they go bankrupt, maybe they deserve it.


Suggested Improvements

Take responsibility for service problems and design flaws

2004 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 4dr Crew Cab 4WD (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

would not buy another one, fit is terrible, rattles, paint has blemishes, vehicle wanders all over road, transmission clunks, and the mileage is not what the manufacture says it is. The worst design i could have purchased. Neat concept but the bed leaks and the plastic is fading. Ok mr.goodwrench what's next.


Favorite Features

The size of the vehicle.


Suggested Improvements

Have the vehicle built in america with a little higher quality control, Stop putting the dealers and customers second to fix things after the product is built. For 38k the thing should feed you breakfast in bed. Not Leak and rattle. There are no excuses for poor craftsmanship.

2004 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 4dr Crew Cab Rwd (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I've had intermediate steering shaft problems, replaced both Idler arms , water pump , blower modular, stereo, and now my transmission is burnt out I'm real disappointed. What happened to reliability and pride in workmanship. I paid cash for a truck loaded with problems. Dont buy this truck! After 3K miles the first truck was replaced because the steering problems could not be corrected. All the problem above are on the second truck. I've had it with this truck.

Review

this vehicle leaks loads of dust into the cab and bed, the torque is too low for large loads, the storage boxes on the outside of the bed are useless(leak dust and water), back seat room is very limited for an adult on an extended road trip, dvd player doesn't rotate to side views(you have to sit in the middle of the rear seat), rear radio controls are confusing to use, exterior plastic trim is poorly attached to the body and makes a lot of noise at road speed because it buffets in the wind, seats are hard and impossible to adjust to a comfortable position, you cannot load a 4-wheeler in the bed.


Favorite Features

my spouse likes the quiet and smooth ride. goody


Suggested Improvements

extend the rear seating area at least 12 inches and call me next time.
