Chevy avalanche is reliable.

It is very reliable get me from A to B. I have had it for six years and have not had any major issues. You shouldn't have any issues as long as you keep up the maintenance and regular checks. I love that it has five seats and a bed so there is plenty of room. It is comfortable and convenient if I need to drive in any weather.

Great for a work truck and traveling.

The only thing I can say about this is electric problems with the dashboard maybe the first owner but I had problems with my radio cutting the headlights off while driving. Never could find the problem with it other that got for work on the road gas was great. Kids love to take trips on the road comfy for kids back seat.

- Shay F

The vehicle always had very smooth turning. Even when it was at its worst.

I am not gonna lie, the vehicle has problems. It needs a front end align bad. There is also problems with a brakes and the mileage is very high. But when it was performing at its peak, it was a very good car. It has a good comfy cloth sheet and a DVD player in the back for kids. It is a very nice addition to the truck.
