Old but still a reliable car.

2012 Chevrolet Avalanche LS

It is an old car and it is definitely not in perfect condition. It makes noise when my husband drives it but other than that I do not think we have any more problem with our car. Performance wise I believe my husband is still happy with it, we never had a problem with it suddenly stopping in the middle of driving. Radio works great, we just had a radio installed by best buy few months ago. I can say it is comfortable and reliable to ride it except that it is kind of noisy, probably because the engine is old already but overall it is fine.

Love my truck. Love everything about it.

2012 Chevrolet Avalanche LS

My truck is amazing.From the gas mileage to maintenance it's a true gem. It has never broken down the most work was just a battery and windshield wipers.Never no major work was done, and I love the make, model and year.The point its cheap on gas and the oil change is hardly now or never.Thread on tires is great.
