2003 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 4dr Crew Cab 4WD (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I bought this truck used with 133,000 on it and I love it. I would buy another avalanche in a heartbeat. I have used it for hauling a trailer, used the midgate several times to haul wood for projects.


Best Features

Side tool boxes and Midgate versatility


Worst Features

Fuel Economy

Review

This is a great truck and family vehicle all in one. I have owned suburbans and this allows the large quad seating area for the family when needed and then haul dirt with having to worry about destroying the interior. Mission accomplished for multi purpose vehicle. Performance is great as I tow boats and trailers regularly. 3/4 ton would have been nice at times but for the average person not needed, probably why they discontinued the option.


Best Features

Comfort and features of a suburban front half with the functionality of pickup truck bed.


Worst Features

Not sure why they have not been able to make the midgate window power operated yet!!!! Until then I have no reason to upgrade.

Review

The top parking light housing are like a piece of candy. the inside clamp that you snap the light in breaks super easy. Also the main driving light has a silver cap on the inside housing that falls off from the inside and eventually blows the inside bulb out. i'm writing this because something has to be done because this is my third top light housing that broke. This is my first main light housing that broke.


Best Features

the transformable pickup. you can do all types of things with it its great. i even found a custom speaker box that fits in the midgate area.


Worst Features

shorten the antena. re-enforce the inside of the main driving light housing so that the inside doom doesn't break off inside of the light it self. Also make the top parking light inside where you clamp the light in stronger so it doesn't break of with the least pressure.

(dash,console,doors,etc.) MPG is horrible sticker said 12-16, this one gets 12.5 going down hill on the highway and that's on a good day!!Bed cover leaks like it's not even there!! Tranny and drive line pops,dangs and jerks carnival ride! I'm going bankrupt on fuel, trading for Ford or Dodge ASAP!!

The whole truck...Front bumper to Rear bumper!!!

Review

I bought my avalanche in june of 2003 at 2 years old the transmission went out and it doesn't jet out like it used to. Then it leaks water inside because it got hailed on and now its messed up so i think it might have shorted my electrical system because my airbag light came on. Then my passenger window recently went out so.


Best Features

sits up high


Worst Features

powertrain
