I've owned my 2009 Chevy Avalanche for ~6 months and have thoroughly enjoyed driving this truck. The ride height is great and the ride is very smooth. The four-wheel drive has worked well in the limited snow / slush we've had, didn't slide around at all. Good acceleration and power. A bit thirsty, but not much more so than was my Montero Sport.
Reliable despite having some of the known issues that blazers commonly have. 220k miles and still going strong
WE HAVE OWNED 4 TAHOE SUV's OVER A 12 YEAR PERIOD. THEY ARE THE BEST VEHICLES WE HAVE EVER DRIVEN, AND WE ONCE TRIED THE FOREIGN SCENE. GAS ECONOMY IS OUTSTANDING FOR THE SIZE AND WEIGHT OF THESE VEHICLES DUE TO A FUEL MAXIMUM MILEAGE SYSTEM. ON A TRIP THE TAHOE IS IN THE V-4 GAS MODE FOR A LOT OF THE TIME. WE OWN A BEAUTIFUL RED TAHOE AND STUNNING BROWNSTONE TAHOE. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
2005 Z71 56,000 miles! This is our 4th, 4X4 Blazer/Tahoe. All excellent! Many offers to buy from spectators.
Body in great shape, very little rust. Some paint peels in small spots. Front end damage that was not fixed. Electrical problems, i.e wipers have some hesitation at times; all air/heat settings not working; fuel gauge not working at all; lights flicker slightly. Right now, needs brakes and 2 new tires for inspection this month, June of 2016.
