2005 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 4dr Crew Cab LS Rwd (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


I had every intention of buying a 1500
silverado crew cab. However, I took the
Avalanche for a test drive and
immediately fell in love with it's
ride, power, comfort and most of
all..."versatility". I'm not the type
of guy who will spend $4k on exterior
mods for "others" to look at.....I deal
strictly with functionality and
reliability. The Avalanche not only fit
the bill for everything I wanted in a
truck......but it also gave me a "built-
in" bedliner, a bedcover, extra storage
and lots of other bonuses that most
consumers end up spending lots on after
they buy a new truck.
This truck also has great brakes and
plenty of power.

Best Features

self dimming rear-view and side mirrors, heated seats, mid-gate, hard-cover bed panels, cargo lights, foot step in rear bumper for getting up into the bed of truck!

Worst Features

tail gate lock should be integrated with door locks and bed cargo lights should be "switched" to tail-gate! Also, need a passenger airbag "OFF" switch.
