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


Review

I'VE HAD MY AVALANCH FOR ABOUT A MONTH NOW. GAS MILAGE ISNT GREAT BUT FEASABLE. I AVERAGE ABOUT 350 MILES A TANK. ABOUT $47 TO FILL UP FROM EMPTY AT ABOUT $1.79 A GALLON. REGULAR UNLEADED SEEMS TO PERFORM BEST IN THE ENGINE. POWER IS GOOD ALTHOUGH THROTTLE RESPONSE COULD STAND TO BE A TAD BETTER. SOME OF THE INTERIOR IS SOMEWHAT CHEAP BUILD BUT MANAGEABLE.


Favorite Features

I LIKE THAT THE REAR WALL CAME OUT. I HAD THE REAR WALL REMOVED (WHICH ONLY TOOK ABOUT 10 MIN TO SLIDE OUT) AND A NEW WALL MADE OF MDF INSTALLED AND A SUB ENCLOSURE BUILT INTO THE BACK OF IT FOR MY SUBS. DIDNT HAVE TO SPEND MONEY DEFACING THE TRUCK BY HAVING ANYTHING CUT OR DRILLED.


Suggested Improvements

GAS MILAGE. THE INTERIOR COULD BE OF SLIGHTLY BETTER BUILD QUALITY. LESS FLIMSY PLASTIC AND MAYBE MORE STANDARD FEATURES. ALSO NEXT YEAR COLOR KEY THE PLASTIC AROUND THE BED. MAYBE AN SS VERSION BUT THAT MIGHT BE ASKING FOR TOO MUCH BUT ID TRADE MINE FOR ONE.

Review

Total mileage 37,011. Failure of bearings in the differential; Failure, bearing in rear axle on passenger side. Leak in same bearing. Oil lelaked onto emergency brakes. Cost me $1,332.89. 9. Designed to fail at 1,011 miles beyond warranty???? Dealer claiming no GM responsibilty. Results (2).. 1. I pay the bill. (2) Toyota has genuine, non mis-leading total quality throughout. Chev Avalanche taught me to avoid GM PRODUCTS. I AM PURCHASING A TOYOTA AVALON as soon as my Avalanche is available from its costly repairs. READER: Are you capable of learning from the above experience. It's only your money.


Suggested Improvements

Upgrade the quality of the vehicle.

Review

This is the ultimate toy. Able to go from a cool looking SUV to a working truck in less than a minute. So easy that one person can do it. Looks like a radical truck but rides like an expensive car.

Review

I have had my Z 66 for 9 months and almost 16000 miles and it is superb. Only one small problem with a rear end bearing, otherwise flawless. XM is great. Ride is super. Towing is very good. Utiliy and versatility are 11 on a 1 to 10 scale. I just cannot say enough good things about it.


Favorite Features

XM. Dual A/C controls, I like it very cold and my wif likes it much warmer, and now both of us are satisfied!!!! Superb seats for comfort and seating positions (AN1 leather OPTION).


Suggested Improvements

Tailgate lock be tied into the electronic locking system.
