I LOVE MY TRUCK and wouldn't get anything else

2003 Chevrolet Avalanche Base

When I first got my Chevy avalanche, it ran great. It; s so roomy. I could fit everyone in it with no problem. The radio searched for my kind of music and programmed it in. Everyone that road in it LOVED it. I took it on long trips and it would start right up. If I ever needed help, there is a button I can push and someone would ask me if I needed help. It's all electric so you know if something goes wrong with it, it's going to cost a lot of money to fix. I have soft seats that recline. I love that for when I go on trips I can sleep in the truck. I can remove the back window for more air. And the very back of the truck, is as big as a regular size truck.

Best truck I have ever bought and reliable since day one.

2003 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 5dr Crew Cab 130' WB 4WD

I have an 03 avalanche that I drive daily. I love it,I've owned it for 9 years. The only problem I have had with it is my air conditioner had a leak. I got it fixed now it works excellent. It does have a small bed but with the back window able to come out completely it makes it a longer bed. The inside is very spacious,I've had 6 people in the truck and they still could move around freely. It has a moon roof that's nice if I don't want the side windows down. I have taken the truck on many trips and always got to point a and b safely. I also have loud pipes on it which my son loves:). I would definitely buy another one any day.

Chevy Avalanche: good looking and versatile

2003 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 5dr Crew Cab 130' WB 4WD

I think the seats are very comfortable. There are lots of adjustments so it can fit any size person from short to tall. I love the versatility in the bed size where you can have the 6 foot bed or you can make it longer by removing that lids and putting the back seat down. I do not like that it rusts on the back quarter panel over the tires every avalanche I've seen rusts in the exact same place and it rusts a lot. It's been very reliable for me as a four wheel drive. I've never gotten stuck. For a 1500, it's got pretty good towing capabilities.
