"Comfortable, handles well at any speed, tows well, convenient drop down features allow hauling full plywood sheets. Mine has full vinyl wrap which avoids most door dents etc., descent mileage for a vehicle over 5,000#. Only problems have been light lens UV clouding, heater blower replaced twice, alternator replaced, tail light connector."

Does everything I need it to do!

Pros: "Fun to drive, Great looks"

Cons: "City MPG, Leather could be better, Cladding"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"Bought my Avalanche 18 months ago with 85k on it and runs like the day it left the factory! Love the thought Chevy put into the truck such as the bed liner, side saddles, side step into the bed, mid-gate with removable back window! My truck has all the bells and whistles with comfortable leather 6 way power driver and passenger seats that are heated too! Only downsides is to keep it looking fresh I constantly have to apply back to black on the cladding but other than that fantastic truck! Also the City MPG is bad too at 13-14 city but on the highway I got low 20s with AC blasting which is not too bad for a 5.3l."

"I purchased it "New" off the showroom floor. EXCELLENT VEHICLE!! FUN! I've received a Constant flow of Compliments since the 1st day I got it, to the present. NEGATIVES: 1- Replaced Transmission @ 65,000 miles 2- The "Fuel-to-Performance" ratio MAKES NO SENSE AT ALL! [MPG = 13/15]. I've owned it for 12 years. It gets the same MPG when traveling 600 miles w/ a FULL SIZED Trailer, as it does driving around town!! Makes NO sense to me. IF THE FUEL-TO-PERFORMANCE RATIO WAS CONGRUENT... IT WOULD BE A P-E-R-F-E-C-T All-Purpose Pick-up Truck. Superb~"

"Such a great vehicle. Z71 package and four wheel drive has never left me stuck. I bought the 2005 truck in 2007 and loved it ever since. It currently has 320,000 miles on the original engine and transmission. Love it but getting a little worried about how many miles are left in it before something expensive breaks. It's amazing how long a vehicle can last when the oil is changed every 3,000 miles. The truck's 320,000 miles speak for the self."
