"Nothing about it I don't like. GM didn't notify us of speedometer screw-up so I had to repair it myself. Other than GM not doing what they should on recall, the vehicle is great, Avg gas mileage is 16 mpg but it is a heavy truck."

Pros: "Versatile"

"Still hard to believe that they quit making this vehicle last year. One of the best driving, and most versatile trucks ever made. Drives like a "Cadillac", but can haul my 6k pound boat with ease. What a fantastic overall vehicle. The ONLY bad thing I can say about it is the gas mileage - but then again, it will haul 2k pounds and pull 6K with ease - it's just not a economy car."

Pros: "very comfortable ride, good gas mileage for a V8,"

Cons: "the brake calipers seem to sieze up unexpectedly"

"I bought this Avalanche with 74,000 miles in 2010. In the 4+ years (90,000+ miles) that I have owned it I replaced the water and fuel pumps and also the brakes all around. That is it! Minimal rust on hood. Rides like a car, yet I have taken it in rugged wilderness areas in Michigan without a problem."

"very reliable, I drive one of the worst roads in pa {645} from Schuylkill haven to Lebanon, was good on gas until ethanol, was hit in parking lot on drivers rear side, got fixed, but body at gas cap could of not been that great because of rust there, everything in suspension & drive-rain was replaced when it had over 120000 miles, new oversized top name brand tires, never left me down, looking to downsize, check out map & see my route to work, and I do not baby anything, before the avalanche I had a 1994, z71 5speed 1500 and sold it with 1750000 miles, wish I had it back loved the 5speed manual tranny"
