This truck never gave me a problem pretty reliabl

2006 chevy avalanche powered by the 5.3 liter engine. I've had this truck for a couple months did changes here and there and doesn't give me a problem. Doesn't waste oil no knockings nothing at all. Frame isn't rusted. I recommend buying these trucks there pretty dam good! I use the truck for towing my boat and transporting family pretty comfy.

4.0

Comfortable truck

I was looking for something that would be able to transport tall things occasionally, room for 4, comfortable and reliable. The Avalanche ticked all the boxes. Based on a Suburban frame, it is definitely comfortable, enough room for all I need to do, and can haul small loads with ease. Very impressed with the 22 mpg I got on the highway once, although 17-18 is a little more common. Owned for almost a year and it has been trouble free!

5.0

VERSATILE, COMFORTABLE, CAPABLE

This truck may be the most functional personal truck ever produced. All of the power and strength of a 1500 Silverado with the comfortability of a Tahoe. Use it as a family vehicle, towing truck or for city style. Perfect for a fun seeker of any interest!
