Wears poorly with time.

2002 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 4dr Crew Cab 4WD (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


AV is a good idea for those looking
for room, ride and the benefits of a
truck. Unfortunately, like most GM
products, this truck doesn't age well.
After two years and 36k, problems are
starting to pop up on a regular
basis.The truck is babied and serviced
regularly, but exhaust baffles just
went, steering coupler seized up, ABS
sensor died etc.
The good deals on new Avalanches mean
huge depreciation for used units.
Buyer beware, buy one to run to the
grouond, not for just 3 or 4 years or
epect to take a huge hit. Good for a
few years or low mileage users, but I
fear how long this truck will hold up.

Best Features

Tonneau cover is first class. Ride qulaity is good, though wind plays havoc with steering.

Worst Features

Yes its a large SUV, but fuel economy could be much better. Best three improvements:Improve quality, quality, quality. If you want quality, look elsewhere.
