Habitual Problems with the Avalanche

2008 Chevrolet Avalanche LT w/2LT

Unfortunately the performance from the vehicle doesn't live up to the advertisement in newspaper articles and marketing. Shifts through rough terrain with extreme difficulty,problems with transmission whenever climbing uphill. Gas guzzler, takes anywhere from 200 to 300 hundred dollars biweekly to keep tank full.
