Cons

Blind spots, but I got towing mirrors for those.

One Of The Best Trucks Chevy Every Built. — Tons of power, it is a 8.1L we're talking about. Body cladding makes it look very aggressive and screams Chevy. Fuel economy isn't great, it's not supposed to be with big trucks like this though. This Av 2500 is amazing to drive.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Wears many different hats for your needs. Fun and easy to drive.

Cons

Big ouch at the pump, big truck means tougher to park, cheap plastic gm interior.

Very Versitile Truck, With Great Attributes!! — This was a fun and versitile truck for my needs. Seats 5 large guys comfortably, room in the back for anything, and if it didn't fit, the mid gate and/or back window could come down, and the cover could be removed when needed! Nice interior...though poor/cheap GM quality! Great acceleration considering size...braking however was a little on the poor side! I miss this truck...I don't miss paying for the gas!

Great Truck — This truck has taken my family on many trips and vacations. Seats are very comfortable, back seats have plenty of leg room for adults. The heated seats are great when it's cold or your back aches. Three passengers fit comfortably in the back seat.

Pros

It's BIG.  Its comfy, and has plenty of power

Cons

The price

I Will Buy A Newer One Soon. — I love the flexibility of my Avalanche. I can haul the whole family (6 of us) or fold the seats down and haul full sheets of plywood. I can tow 8,000 pounds with ease. We can comfortably cruise down the highway at 70 mph and still get 20 mpg. Not too bad for a 6,300 pound vehicle.

Pros

More than a Truck it actually has room inside for people as well as additional cargo.

Cons

actually having to put hands on the rear window running the risk of potnetial damage not to mentiion the poorly designed resin surround from cracking around the edge of the window.

Love My Avalanche Best Truck Ever. — I bought this truck to replace a truck and a crossover something for work and hauling kids and materials. someone mentioned to me try an Avalanche.. Why not? Truck look , truck style, comfort inside, power under the hood, modern toys and gadgets what more can you ask for. This truck drives like a dream and best of all its still a truck you can bolt on your stuff add upgrades and by god its a CHEVY.

Love This Truck — Best truck I have ever owned. I wish I did not have to sell this truck. I have to commute to far to work now. I need to get a small car for commuting. This truck rides like a Cadillac. Great Power and handling. You will forget your riding in a truck when driving.

Pros

Love that everything in the back or in the toolboxes can be locked up.  Love that I can use it when I need to hit Home Depot or just take the kids to soccer

Cons

Pretty much only the fuel economy

Love My Avalanche! — Love this truck one of my favorite vehicles ive owned. Glad I dont drive far though gas prices would make it impossible to own if I did at 13 MPG. Maintenance is pretty simple on it there is plenty of room to work on it if needed and the parts are common and inexpensive

Does everything I have ever needed it to do.

Biggest con is the gas mileage, which wasn't as much of an issue in 2003.

Reliable And Safe — I really like my Avalanche. I had a red one prior to this one that was wrecked. My Avalanche has hauled everything from feed, to groceries, to animals and held up remarkably well. It rides well, has plenty of interior space, is comfortable on long trips and has enough power to do whatever I need.

Perfect — It's my favorite truck ever, it's perfect, it can be a pickup, an SUV, anything, plus its rugged cladding keeps the paint nice. and you can't beat a chevy. that thing will live longer than i will haha. And the gas mileage isn't as bad as everyone thinks it is.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Awesome Drive — I love the look and feel of this truck. Rides nice and has plenty of power for towing the camper.I like the look of the non cladded Avalanche. The clean lines of the trim and bumpers is nicer than the plastic cladding kit. The only downside is after awhile the bed covers start to leak.
