Honda Pilot-Functional. Affordable. Reliable.

2004 Chevrolet Avalanche Base

I love my Honda pilot. We have five people and a dog in our family. So the third row is needed, but I didn't want to drive a minivan. Our third row is a bit small and does not have very much leg room, but it works fine for our younger ones and it is worth the trade off of a larger vehicle. I love the gas mileage my Honda gets so I didn't want a larger gas guzzler. For longer trips we purchased a cargo luggage rack with a waterproof bag that easily attaches to our 2 inch tow hitch that leaves us the space inside for comfort. Since the rear storage is limited when using the 3rd row seat in the reclined position. Overall, the pilot has proved functional, affordable and reliable. I would definitely buy it again!

Chevy did not build the Avalanche to withstand the test of time.

2004 Chevrolet Avalanche Base

the dashboard display has ceased to show reliable information, including fuel gauge and speedometer. Replacement would require days of non-use. Rust everywhere. Electrical problems including seat heating persist. The motors operating the windows are unreliable. The sun roof has problems as well. I have had to replace tailgate mechanism at least four times. Truck was not built well.

2004 Chevy Avalanche Review

2004 Chevrolet Avalanche Base

The only thing I don't like about Chevys is they are very brittle. Tailgate handle broke with a normal pull. Although the truck itself has been a great purchase. I've had Chevys in the past but they didn't measure up to my avalanche. Besides the normal oil changes and tire replacements everything with this truck has been supreme. Top notch. One of the best purchases I've ever made.

Comfortable 4 door truck with perfect bed length.

2004 Chevrolet Avalanche Base

Truck runs great never had any problems, very comfortable. Love the back seats. Very dependable. The Bed is just the right length for hauling things. Kids have tons of room in the back seat. Love that it has 4 doors. Price was very affordable.Has over 100,000 miles and still runs good.

- Heather I

Interesting cargo options.

2004 Chevrolet Avalanche Base

So far it has been very reliable. The interior has seating for 6 people. The v8 engine runs very smooth along with the 4 wheel drive system. The best feature is the storage on each side of the bed along with the extra cargo space by removing the back window and laying the seats down.

- Jeremiah A

Great, Affordable, Family Sized Truck

2004 Chevrolet Avalanche Base

The Chevy Avalanche is a reliable truck, good for a family or single person use. The cab is roomy and the bed is decent; but could be longer. We have leather interior which has worn slowly over the years. With regular maintenance, the engine has proven to be powerful & durable.

- Katie T

Very comfortable truck with leather seats, seat heater, power windows and locks,

2004 Chevrolet Avalanche Base

Definitely one of the more comfortable vehicles I have owned, esp for longer road trips, decent mpg, very few issues or repairs needed in the 5 years I've owned it. Lots of room/leg room, decent storage in center console, love the seat heaters in the winter!

- Lori L

The heat gets really hot and the air conditioning is super cold.

2004 Chevrolet Avalanche Base

I don't like how big it is, the window on the passenger side doesn't roll down. The locks don't work. The heather makes a weird noise. There is a slight chug when you're not driving. The cigarette lighters do not work and the speakers are also not working
