Amazing — put a k&n air intake on it and it added tons of hp made a big impact. the truck does amazing off road and it has plenty of power to get from one point to the next i love it

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

Pros: a truck with a sporty feel

Cons: gas!!!

My Truck Is Stock — I like almost everything about my truck except the body cladding (although it is useful). I wish GM was planning to have an option for the 6.6 Duramax instead of the 4.5 though.

Ode To The Giant Truck — This was a Christmas present my beloved Jeep had died. When I first saw how large this truck was I freaked out, but once I took her for a test drive I fell head over heels. My truck handles just like car. I love the radio, the adjustable pedals and the extra large seating. This is the truck for the soccer mom who doesn't want to drive a mini van {BLAH}.

Pros: The smooth handling and towing ability

Cons: gas prices

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!

Pros: 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.

Functional — Best investment I've ever made. With the covers off I can haul trees, my motorcycles or just about anything else. With the covers on my luggage or items I want to keep out of the weather. Perfect vehicle for family recreation.

This Is One Of Those "should Have Never Sold It" Cars!! —

The first generation Avalanche was a love/hate vehicle from a styling standpoint. Personally, I like the body cladding for a few reasons beyond just the looks. Mine was a 2003 model and the cladding did need a little care to maintain it's color (not nearly as bad as the 2002), however, it's durable and gives the truck a tough, finished look because of the cladding on the sails. The ride is fantastic. It does not ride like a traditional truck because it is based on the Suburban platform. The bed and midgate system are amazing. First, because the bed is made using the room BETWEEN the wheel wells, you end up with lockable storage over the wheels. These bins are foam lined and have drain holes at the bottom...makes for a great cooler. Fill it with ice and toss your drinks in. Next, the midgate system is what makes the Avalanche the coolest truck around. If just need a 5' bed...no problem, it's there all the time. Need 8'? Drop the rear seats and open the gate. With the hard covers on over the bed, this makes an 8 foot bed that is climate controlled. Need vertical space? Remove the rear glass and store it in the midgate. Another fun thing to do is to remove just the rear glass, then drop all your windows. It's just about like having a convertible. If you ever need a good mixture of Truck and SUV, this is it. I'll make this simple... I WILL buy another one!

Pros: Seats 6. Weather proof bed. Mid-gate system. Tows beautifully! Rides
great. Most versatile car I've ever owned.

Cons: Gas milage. (why is it the cars I enjoy most have the worst gas milage?)  Also, this model did not have leather and the seats made me feel like I needed and extra 2 inches of lift to see over the dash. (I'm 5'9")
