Pros: THE RIDE AND CONVERTABILITY
Cons: GAS MILEAGE, BACKING
Advice: BE PREPARED TO GET ABOUT 11 TO 12 MPG AROUND TOWN IN THE 4WD MODEL.THE AVALANCHE HANDLES LIKE A DREAM, MUCH BETTER THAN MY 1500 SILVERADO. ALSO HAS A PLUSH INTERIOR. CANNOT SEE VERY WELL WHEN BACKING. IT NEEDS A BACKING SENSOR TO COME STANDARD.
Cons: engine size,power
Advice: definatley buy one,but watch for the good rebates,drives real smooth,easy handling,could use a little more power.but overall real nice,and what a looker,got the dale earnhardt model,gotta love it.
Pros: On Star
Cons: Payments but 0% is pretty good
Advice: Try it - you will like it.I have been looking for the right new car for several years. I finally saw the new Chevy Impala LS and fell in love with it. After driving it, I had to have it. I feel like I am driving a true luxury car. I love the heated leather seats, the programable driver center that show the direction I am traveling and the outside temperature. It also has 3 buttons that you can program for garage door openers. No more looking for the remote.
Cons: Small back seat
Advice: Buy the extend cab with the 4.3 liter engineThis is my 2nd S-10 4X4. I've owned a Ranger, B-4000, and a Tacoma. This is by far a better truck than any other I've owned. The powertrain of a 4.3, mated with either transmission has much more low-end torque than the others; I highly recommend the 3.73 rear differential. Going over the mountain passes in Colorado is a breeze with the S-10. Off-road, it has performed without a flaw. In my opinion, this is the best compact pickup made.
Pros: GERTAG SHIFTER
Advice: DEFINITELY INVEST IN THE LS SPORT PACKAGEWIPERS ARE INFERIOR. PLENTY OF POWER. NICE, QUIET RIDE. EXCELLENT SOUND SYSTEM.
Pros: ride and handling..... gas mileage is also good.
Cons: automatic headlights
Advice: buy it.very good vehicle. power seats on both sides a real plus. paint chips very easily. first gear shift is hard at light throttle.
Pros: dual memory seat controls for my wife and myself
Cons: no third row seating.....but that feature is coming in an ex model late 2002 model year
Advice: the correct financing makes all of the differenceStylish enough for the wife....performance equipted for me.........and a dvd entertainment system to keep my boy happy. Who could want more?
