Pros: the smooth ride and the appearance
Cons: before the problems nothing
Advice: My advice would be to run awayI was very happy with my purchase for the first few months , now I can not keep it out of the service department(going on the 8th time). the more research I do on the popping noise,electrical and the rest of the problems I'm having I see these problems are common! I will never recommend anyone to buy an avalanche!
Pros: My favorite feature is the 12 way adjustments and heated front bucket seats.
Cons: I have found nothing about this vehicle that I like the least.
Advice: Be sure you check the sticker to see options before deciding which series you will buyMy 2006 Chevrolet Avalanche is a very comfortable and a pleasure to drive. I purchased the truck new in May,2006 with 6 miles on it. I have found it well put together, excellent paint (black), and am pleased with the performance. Everyone who has looked it over and/or driven it has nothing but praise for the truck. With the back seat folding down, access to the bed of the truck by folding down the door to the bed, I have hauled 8ft. lumber, sheet rock, and other things finding it not only useful to transport 5 adults (I have bucket seats in the front)but it handles well as a hauling type truck. The inside is put together very well, with the heated leather front seats to the carpet, I have found it all to be quality. I have the 5.3L, Z71,L3 package, get 14+ in town and 19 on the highway. I am well satisfied with my Avalanche. Try one, you will find the Avalanche a great SUV/Truck.
Pros: Aggressive appearance
Cons: Door locks are a bit chincy
Advice: Buy the truck prepare to buy the gasI just purchased a 2006 Chevrolet Avalance 1500 Z71 and could not be happier. I highly recommend this truck.
