Avalanche of Problems
By kirby28 on


2008 Chevrolet Avalanche LT 4dr Crew Cab 4WD SB (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Bought my "dream truck" in '09 with 5K on it. Pretty much downhill from there. I would'nt buy
another GM product. By 27K I had a vehicle that
felt like it was falling apart. The chronic drive
shaft issues that have never been addressed by
GM continue. Problems won't surface for a few
thousand miles then, good luck. Dash problems,
handles breaking, pieces literally fall from no
where, rattles abound. This one heavy beast
that drives heavy and gets poor gas mileage.

Best Features

drives like a cadillac, quiet, beautiful to look at.

Worst Features

Fix the trans issues, lighten the load, produce a tonneau cover that won't warp or fade.
