Pros

Great looks, versitile vehicle, great for using as a truck when you need it, or a family vacation hauler. Pulls my car trailer with ease. 5300 is a great engine/

Cons

Rear cargo covers are only water resistant, not water tight. Plastic parts should have been painted like the Escallade. Fuel penalty for such a big vehicle, but it's not too bad.

Great Vehicle For Long Family Trips, Great Wrok & Family Vehicle In One. — The Avalanche fits the bill very well. A great road trip vehicle and a good work truck when needed. Very comfortable. Not quite as long as an extended cab PU, and much shorter than a four door PU, but has more useable box space with the midgate down. I have driven this vehicle to Florida 3 X and never get tired driving it, very comfortable.

Pros

Reliable, reliable, reliable. As with any truck, if you take care of it, it takes care of you. In this case, I've been using this as my daily commuter and have never had any issues.

Gas mileage is great for a truck. I average about 20mpg between city and highway driving.

Suspension and steering is phenomenal. The turning radius is great, and it's very nimble in turns.

Cons

If anything, it can get too comfortable on long trips.

One Truck That Does It All. — I bought this truck because I wanted a daily commuter that would turn into a weekend getaway. I don't tow, or carry loads other than my luggage, so I can't comment on the technical aspects most people would buy a truck for. Instead, I can say that I'm accustomed to Mercedes sedans, so transitioning to a big truck was a bit unnerving at first, but the Avalanche made it easy. It handles so well, you forget it's a big truck. Everything about the truck is luxury, from the driving computer, to the ample seating and headroom, to the suspension and steering. I would highly recommend an Avalanche to anyone who thinks they need an SUV, but really want a Truck. This is it.

2004 Chevy Avalanche 2500 — We use this as a commuter and in the winter it gets used as a plow truck as well. It is a very large vehicle and it feels like it to, especially when driving around town it feels like the large truck it is.

Awesome — I really like this truck. It is great. You get a pickup and a SUV at the same time. Gas is crazy expense where I live. So that is the only downfall. When we go camping everything is in the back. It is totally covered whether rain or shine. I love the seat recall and the seat warmers. The tailgate light is super awesome also.

2004 Southern Comfort Edition Chevy Avalanche — I love this truck, very dependable and looks good!! This has been a very good vehicle and it has low mileage. This truck has had only one original owner and has been very well taken care of. Must see to appreciate.

Love My Avalanche — A solid Chevy truck with unique twists. Store things in the "saddlebags," convert the midgate for more cargo room, bench seat allows me to take the whole family out for fun. Great support websites to find answers to almost any problem, issue, or upgrade.
