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.
Comfort and features of a suburban front half with the functionality of pickup truck bed.
Not sure why they have not been able to make the midgate window power operated yet!!!! Until then I have no reason to upgrade.
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.
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.
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.
Leather seats are very comfortable but heated seat on driver's side stoped working shortly after purchase. Interior squeaks and rattles all over!!! (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!!
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.
