This is a great truck. It will do
anything you want it to. Take the kids
to church or the movies, haul supplies
from the Home Depot or Menards, take
your toys to the lake or out in the
wilderness, you name it. The ride is
super smooth and handling is
excellent. Go out and buy one and
Midgate and security of removable hard
covers over truck bed. Locking
tailgate gate standard.
Make sure you get nerf bars. It's a
little high to get into the vehicle.
Gets great mileage for a truck (about
20 mpg highway, but 18 in Atlanta
traffic). Lots of room. Put the midgate
down, and with a sleeping bag, the
three teenagers can sleep while dad
drives on long trips.
Extremely solid vehicle with engine
performance that exceeds expectations.
It handles well, especially on tight
corners. The interior design is very
user friendly and the BOSE sound system
is far superior to any factory installed
system I have ever heard.
Satellite Radio option
Auto-Dimming rearview mirror

I just recently purchased a Chevy
Avalanche. I have wanted one since I
laid eyes on one for the first time. I
finally was able t obuy one, so of
course I got the exact one that I
wanted....a Dark Blue Metallic, loaded
with everything but a DVD System. I get
lots of looks with it, and everyone
that gets in it loves it. I have shown
people the Avalanche, and most have
never actually been inside one, or
don't know what it does, with the drop
down "midgate" which turns it into a
pickup. I am a SCUBA Diver, so the
Avalanche is the perfect vehicle for
me, with the secured box to keep all my
dive gear locked up and secure. I love
the way the interior is laid out also.
I can't say enough about it!
I think my favorite things about the
Avalanche are its rugged good looks,
versatility, and ease of driving. I
also love the steering wheel controls,
and the sound system, complete with XM
Satellite Radio. The Bose speakers
sounds great, even at a high volume. I
get nothing but comliments!!
The only thing I can think of to
improve the Avalanche, is maybe a
little better fuel economy, and a
little more resistance in the steering
wheel. It turns so easily, it takes
some getting used to trying to keep it
steady while driving. Other than that,
I have no problems with the vehicle
