    Great Truck! — Love this truck and hate to see it go. But due to size and Military move we have to. Great in all weather conditions and very safe and useful. Uses more gas but has great torch and power. Great Family Vehicle.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Nice, Big, Spacoious, Great handeling, Good breaks, stearing and accleration. I Love this truck and feel very safe and comfortable when driving. Nice look.

    Cons: Since it is a bigger vehicle it's a little harder to park in small spaces and uses more gas.  Replaced the battery once and brakes 3 times. Normal matinence, tune ups and oil changes.

    Mood Vehicle — I love that she has lockable tool boxes on each side of bed. I like the cover and that I can decide how much I want to take off. I like that it has class not just a truck look. I like that the girls can listen to their own music. The bose speakers are awesome!

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Great truck with alot of lockable storage space to organize.

    Cons: I cant think of any Cons.

    2005 Avalanche — I love the Avalanche, except for the fact that I have put quite a few dollars in repairs, and for the fact that it is underpowered for what I need in towing power. For a single guy it is great. It looks great, sounds great (after an aftermarket exhaust), but for a famly of 4 with a 25 foot camper, no! I will be selling and upgrading to a 3/4 or 1 ton truck!

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

    Pros: I like the looks and comfort!

    Cons: Fuel economy sucks and it has quite a few problems!

    I Love It — Truck is extremely solid. over 110k miles and still like brand new. she is gorgeous, second only to my woman. loaded inside and out. gas mileage is anywhere from 18-20 with low maintenance. I love my Avalanche, and wouldn't give her up

    Pros: Perfect for what I need it for, full size truck with covered storage

    Cons: not high towing, not the best gas mileage

    Chev Avalanche — great big truck, lovely to drive around town or on trips, drives great, the traction control is too sensitive and the cd player doesnt like it when it is very cold, heater takes time to get warm and the chrome rusts quickly in the winter

    Pros: looks good

    Cons: bigger than most parking spaces

    Avalanche — WOW what an incredible vehicle! I chose this particular truck due to its versatility. i can have all of the comforts of a 5 passenger truck and not have the wheelbase/bed to long. THis has the biggest Literage engine that you can put in a truck at 8.1 L. After having this motor everything else seems to be left in the dust. Downside 14.5 MPG.

    Pros: 8.1L V-8, Great for 4-wheeling, 4WD

    Cons: MPG and the Price tag

    My Avalanche — It does everything and it is not as bad on gas as you would think. I love love love my Avalanche!!!! IT accelerates fairly quick handling is like driving a car. Not needed any major repairs and it's been well worth the money. Glad I picked this one over a car.

    Pros: can use as a truck or suv, not bad on gas

    Cons: not enough people buying them and need more add-ons for them
