"I have owned this truck for 6 years.It is equipped with the Z-66 package.Never had any problems with it .Not great gas mileage ,but what do you expect from a vehicle that weighs what this truck weighs.Most comfortable vehicle that Ive ever had.And that includes a Cadillac once.I also own a Ford . Not even close to this vehicle.Go buy you one and then compare it to other trucks you have owned.This vehicle is in a class of its own.Its the Cadillac of all the big trucks on the market today."

"2004 avalanche best vehicle I ever owned by far, would recommend to anyone. PRO'S: exellent in all driving conditions I live in upstate NY and rarley put it in 4 wheel drive I dont think the gas milage is too bad does better than my trailblazer tons of room and abalility to convert the rear into p/u is exellent the truck is gorgeous to look at especially with the body armour panels low maintnance CONS: 2 other people I know have avalanches one with an 03 identical to mine and the other an 02 we all have the same problems 1) the window motors are very slow and have a tendency to break 2) the rear tailgate lock fails 3) the instrument cluster goes bad and needs to be replaced ( chevy has riembursed for 04 models and up so exept for those minor cons overall everyone i know who owns one raves about thier truck and believes its the best they ever owned"

Pros: "Great for work and family trips to the mountains."

Cons: "Alot of exterior plastic/typical truck gas mileage"

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

"We absolutely love our 2002 Z-66! It's quite, comfortable, and very reliable. It handles very well, has plenty of power in the 5.3 liter engine and looks great. We love that the back seats drop and by removing the back seat panel, the bed of the truck extends into the interior back of the cab (very convenient!) It's also nice that the 3 locking panels that cover the bed are waterproof and that we can lock just one, or two in place if we need to (also very convenient). I wish there wasn't quite as much plastic exterior trim and that it got better gas mileage but that's to be expected (14-17 mpg). I love driving it and plan on keeping it for as long as it will go."
