2007 Chevrolet Avalanche Expert Review
2007 Chevy avalanche review.
My truck has over 180, 000 miles on it, and still runs like a champ! A majority of these miles are highway miles. Living in Wyoming, having a big truck is a necessity when it comes to driving in the snow, and my avalanche has never had any problems with driving in harsh weather conditions. However, because it is such a big vehicle, it is hard to navigate through smaller areas such as parking lots, etc. The turning radius on the truck is not the best either. As far as comfort goes, there is lots of space! It seats five, and I usually take four other friends with me and they all have room to be comfortable. It rides smooth, and the sound system is great. It has a sunroof and I usually have it open as often as I can, weather permitting. It is a super safe vehicle as well.
Good on rough terrain, does not have size capacity for hauling or loading cargo.
I noticed immediately that there was something wrong with the electrical features. The headlights, tail lights, and blinkers would randomly stop working at times but when we replaced the parts they still wouldn't work times or would quickly stop working again not long after replacement. I guess the wire harnessing kits are prone to connection issues if you drive on rough or bumpy terrain or during rainy or snowy conditions. So that was really inconvenient. Aside from that it handles the road wonderfully, especially in the winter with icy roads or even in deep snow. I have never ever gotten stuck and not been able to get out.
Love her but she has a few quirks.
My vehicle is more than a car it is an SUV with 4 wheel drive, great for snowy climates and off-road terrain. If you like tailgating it is perfect for storing and hauling items in the bed of the truck. It has built in coolers and sits high enough to look down on others. The sunroof is perfect and the back window is removable. Bad side is it is not kid proof, my kids have broken the tuner dials and outlet covers. I have also replace the seat adjuster handles on the minor side of things. Major repairs include a new rebuilt engine and the more miles the more frequent oil changes.
