Avalanche is no longer produced by Chevrolet; there are many still on the road.

Good gas mileage, comfortable ride, good sound system, standard size bed that expands to 8 feet when rear seats folded down and access panel lowered. Rear window removable if necessary to carry large size loads. Being ten years old, there rubber parts are declining and have been or will be replaced. O2 sensors have been replaced as well as various engine belts and parts.

Love the space and the cargo size that it offers.

Love my avalanche all around good truck, the only thing I didn't like was the facts of the flex fuel 5.3 lt motor the new DoD motors. Do not last or work nearly as good as the older motors. This would be the only reason that I give it a 3 grade on the 10 scale, if this truck would have stayed with the older style vortex motor this would be an all around 10 on the scale.

Chevy avalanche is big in bed and cab.

I love this truck. It has big enough to haul stuff and big enough cab to carry four passengers. It is very reliable. I do not think the seats are very comfortable. I wish there was a lock on outside of truck to unlock. I like the ability to unlock all doors and roll down all window from control on driver door.
