2012 Chevrolet Avalanche LT 4dr Crew Cab SB (5.3L 8cyl 6A)


I've never spent more than $18k for a new car so this was a real splurge for me, but I am totally in love this 2012 Avalanche!
We raise and show rabbits and I got it to take our rabbits and equipment to the shows.
It has not disappointed me.
It's easy to drop the back seat and midgate and I have LOTS of room to put rabbit cages, grooming table, etc..., and the best part is that I can keep the rabbits cool or warm, as needed, because the bed cover keeps the elements out.
The ride is very nice, not at all like a truck.
The only thing I'm on the fence about is the AFM (active fuel management) system.
If I have to press on the gas there tends to be a slight lag before it accelerates. Update 2016 - still love my Avy! Gas mileage has gone down a little and I wish the A/C blew a little stronger but overall I'd buy it again if I could. I keep getting offers to sell, but there is nothing else out there with the same features to replace it with so I'll keep it as long as I possibly can.
