Nice Truck by Avalance Owner on 10/21/2011. Trim: 2002 Chevrolet Avalanche 2500 2WD, Owned 9 years.
Pros: The space. It is unbelievable how much stuff and people you can squeeze into this truck without comprimising comfort and safety. We take our family of 5 camping in this truck. We all fit comfortably in th cab. We can even fit stuff under the seats to. We take tons of stuff camping and we camp like kings.
Cons: We had a lot of problems with the fuel guage sensor & had the fuel pump go out twice since we bought it. You can tell when its about to go, as soon as the fuel guage starts showing that very little gas is being used for trips that normally take longer, thats how I know the fuel pump is about to go. We also have problems with (& I see lots of avalanches on the road that have this same problem) the daytime and fog lamps going out. One side will go out, then as soon as you change those, the other side goes out. It doesn't matter if you change both sides at the same time. Also, if you drive through flooded streets during a rainstorm, if enough water gets up in the engine, the horn goes out.
Overall review: This truck is really nice (minus all the problems we had with it). I still own it today. I guess the dealer finally fixed the problems with the fuel guage, we haven't had problems since. It does get really bad mileage (I have the 37.5 gallon tank). If you can drive this truck and leave the lead foot at home, you'll be suprised at how much longer your tank of gas will last. At today's gas prices, I'm paying about $140 for a tank of gas
