"I flew to Albuquerque, NM for a job interview with an aviation firm in 2008. My flawlessly performing Chevy Silverado was at a San Antonio Chevy dealer having a fuel pump changed after about 144,000 miles. I was driving a rented Dodge product when I saw this blue Avalanche on a street corner. I said to myself 'now that is me', and kept going. On arrival back in San Antonio, a salesman asked me if I was ready for an upgrade. He showed me an Avalanche excactly like the one I saw in Albuquerque. The rest was history.
All I can say folks, is that this Avalanche is the best vehicle I have owned to date. Pricey? yes, but this truck delivers. Everything Kelly blue book says about it I have to agree with. One of the few complaints I have though, is the paint. It is chipping in certain areas,if you look closely enough. After it is paid off (I owe about $17,000.00 after about three years), I plan on having it repainted anyway. Nevertheless, the vehicle still turns heads. Right now the government is subsidizing E85 fuel, and that helps on the refueling side. Oh yes, after three years, the lock on the front seat center console storage box lid (plastic) broke, a new lid would have cost around $400.00, so I bought some $1.99 velcro strips and installed it, now everthing is good again. Looks good, runs well. To be fair, not cheap. that's Chevy Avalanche."
