02 Avalanche is a good fun truck.

2002 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 5dr Crew Cab 130' WB 4WD

Had more problems with the brake system than anything. Has 198k miles on it and the rear ended just seized up. Replaced tranny 2 years ago and replacing engine next year. Being able to open up the back of the cab is a great feature! Also like all the extra storage. Have no intentions of getting rid of.

The lifesaver of the my life for every year.

2002 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 5dr Crew Cab 130' WB 4WD

The only problem on my car is my bearing and my abs system and it got lots of rust on it but it still running and take me where I want to be so still more life on it. The good thing I like about my car it save me money on gas the mileage still low I do long distance twice already it still running good.

My 2002 Chevrolet Avalanche

2002 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 5dr Crew Cab 130' WB 4WD

My avalanche does have some flaws like the rust above the back tires. I have owned it for more than 5 years now. It does need maintenance like the starter, water pump etc, overall it has been a very dependable vehicle. I haul rock, tow cars, it's been a family driver as well. I do love my avalanche.

Reliable and capable, but it will drink fuel.

2002 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 5dr Crew Cab 130' WB 4WD

Honestly out of every car I have ever owned my avalanche is my favorite. It's the perfect mix of comfort and function for me. It can be a little tough on fuel but is a very capable vehicle. It's going on 250,000 miles now and never had a major problem. Honestly I would buy another in a heartbeat.

Old truck last for a very long time.

2002 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 5dr Crew Cab 130' WB 4WD

Being 17 years old. It's quite reliable. Yeah there are minor things wrong like no radio( got stolen) to only some interior lights working (might need just bulbs or are unplugged) not sure yet. But overall major medical is fine. Highly recommends it.
