2005 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 4dr Crew Cab LS Rwd (5.3L 8cyl 4A)
I was more than happy to be able to upgrade my Chevy vehicle from a Tracker (2WD convertible) which was fun to drive-like a golf cart, to the Avalanche. WOW! I have had it for 3 months now and enjoy every second driving it. Power, style, and smooth ride. I should mention that the stock stereo/CD system works just fine. I have Bose in the house and thought I'd be spoiled and would need the Bose quality in the truck-NAH. It rocks just fine.
I love the flexibility to go from SUV to truck. Hauling the kids or a stack of sheetrock-it's all good! The ride is smooth and engine gets it done.
The gas price increase was the last thing I needed and the worst thing about the Avalanche-I suppose that is true about every big truck. It just costs too much to fill up. I have opted to just accept it because it is a new truck. Will be something I look at next time.
