First the front passenger and eventually all automatic door looks stopped responding. If you look out there, it is a known problem with the Avalanche at least for certain model years. Basically the parts inside your door wear out prematurely. I think it was an actuator or something like that but not sure. Anyway, negotiated with the dealership as I felt this was ridiculous to have door locks fail at 75K. I made a point that I had a vehicle...

Chevrolet Avalanche Reviews

I have cracks in the dashboard and brackets holding dash just worked themselves free.

I love love love my Avalanche truck. But I have some of the problems listed above. I have the check engine light on a lot and it is usually because of the 4WD issue or because of the gas cap. So damage to something may not be present and yet it's telling the code reader the whole thing needs to be replaced. Just make sure you get a second opinion before committing to a whole piece replacement.

i have a 09 avalanche and i can't get the camera to work it was fot a min.HELP

service air light is on

I HAVE A 2008 AVALANCHE LTZ, THAT I BOUGHT NEW. CURRENTLY IT HAS 125,000 MILES AND I LOVE IT. THE ONLY PROBLEM I HAD WAS HAVING TO CHANGE MY FRONT BRAKES AND ROTORS FOUR TIMES. THE FIRST SET OF TIRES GOT 80,000 MILES (GREAT), THE SECOND SET ONLY GOT 35,000
MILES.
THE BRAKES SEEM GOOD FOR 20,000 MILES AFTER CHANGING AND THEN THE FRONT ROTORS START TO PULSATE. I WOULD BE AFRAID TO TOW ANYTHING WITH THESE BRAKES.

DOES ANYONE KNOW OF ANY RECALLS CONCERNING REPLACEMENT OF THE FRONT
ROTORS. MY MECHANIC TELLS ME IT IS BECAUSE THE ROTORS ARE MADE
TOO THIN TO REDUCE WEIGHT. I SAY, TAKE THE WEIGHT OUT SOMEWHERE
ELSE AND GIVE US GOOD BRAKES.

OTHERWISE, I LOVE THE THING.
