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


Review

The truck has been wonderfully comfortable to drive. Easy to turn, drive. I get 20 MPG with the 5.3 liter motor, though most of my miles are highway. Glad I bought this truck.


Favorite Features

1. Covered bay area that is easy to remove, 2. Driving stability, 3. High performance, many whistles and gadgets AND 20 miles per gallon.


Suggested Improvements

Continue the good work.

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


Review

This has to be the best personal use truck on the market. 16 mpg city, 22 mpg on highway, tows my 7000 pound boat without trouble, rides great, and comes standard with removable bed cover, built in locking storage (which work great as an ice chest), bed mat, etc. No mechanical issues, warranty expired without ever needing service.


Favorite Features

Great ride, good mileage for size, dependable. Can't wait for the 2007


Suggested Improvements

More power, back up assist.

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


Review

This truck rides like a dream! I have found no other brand of truck that rides as smooth and quiet. Everyone who has been a passenger in this vehicle is extremly surprised at the quality of the ride. People find it hard to believe it's a truck!


Favorite Features

Plenty of power, great for towing. Power folding, heated, electrocromic mirrors(auto dimming). DVD player awesome onboard computer.


Suggested Improvements

Bigger breaks would be nice. 07 has added rear camera which is a must.

Review

The versatility of the truck is unmatched. I have been able to use two tiered hauling, filling the area under cargo panels and then stacking an equal amount of weight and stuff on top. I can haul 2 yards of mulch in the back, hose it off and go out to a nice dinner that night.


Favorite Features

The midgate has come in handy, I have even had scouts sleep in it with the midgate down. The side storage areas are great as well.


Suggested Improvements

None really.

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


Review

I have put over 65,000 miles on my Avalanche in two and a half years. The only problem was that the tailgate latch broke. On the highway I get between 18 and 21 MPG even on the 75 MPH interstates. I have hauled 12 ft. 2x12's inside with the tailgate closed. The bed cover is secure yet easy to remove. In short it is a GREAT vehcle with multi-talents.


Favorite Features

The lockable bed and the great gas milage for a vehicle of this size and power.


Suggested Improvements

Improved lighting in the rear seat area.
