Hello All !!

We took delivery today of our first Avalanche. 2007 LTZ 4wd.  Loved these since I was working with them at the Milford Proving Grounds. Our department had a few over the years as our business use, always the top of the line with every option, made for a easy resale for GM at the end of the year.  This is the wife's truck that she will let me drive once in a while.  She retired from Ford and kept having me look at their products, what a bunch of crap they now produce.  Some were two years old and the cab corners were already rotten, doors, quarters all just falling apart.  I was raised on blue oval paychecks and how they have fallen away from decent products.  I have a 2008 GMC Envoy that I just love.

Hello, I'm new to the forum and just wanted to introduce myself. I recently purchased a 2012 Avalanche LT model with 53k miles, and really like this vehicle so far. Was in the market for another truck and didn't really know anything about the Avalanche until I happened across this deal. Should have looked into these things sooner.

Happy to have found this forum and read a ton of good info on this vehicle!  :wave:

New member checking in. 2010 LTZ with 125k on the clock. The body & oil changes were well cared for, but I'll be catching up on some of the standard preventive maintenance in the next week or so. I started with plugs/wires yesterday, up next is every fluid/oil except maybe the brake fluid. Pics to come!

"new" owner of a 2008 Avalanche.  Many cars and trucks later I bought this one.  Very clean for years and miles!  Thought I would stop in from time to time.

New Member here and thanks for the add...  Just picked up my 2010 Summit White LTZ yesterday and options include Nav, Sunroof and rear seat DVD.  It has 57K miles and fairly well cared for.  After general maintenance, items on the to do list are:
 - Brakes - probably resurface or get new front rotors as they are pulsing, probably warped.
 - Floor mats - probably Weathertech
 - Air compressor for suspension.  It is very, very loud but works.
 - Console bin (ashtray) lid is broken, get a new one to replace.
 - See what I can do about the cracked dash.  I hear it's a common problem.

Good Morning Club. I have owned a 2007 Avalanche for 5 years now.
It is an LTZ model, but does not have to "wood" trim that goes over the cup holder and cubby hole located in the center console.
Does anyone have an idea where one could be located? I am also interested in updating the radio from an internal CD changer to an OEM screen with a back up camera instead of just sensors. Suggestions?

Thanks,
Devo

 :welcome: devo,

I'm not sure the 2007 LTZ came with the fake wood grain doors over the cup holder and cubby area but you may find it in another branch of GM such as GMC or Cadillac console covers?
As far as radio upgrades you should check with customer service at www.crutchfield.com they are very helpful and can set you up with all things needed for the upgrade.

Been lurking on here for a while getting information and tech help. But now I am in a pickle so I joined for some purchasing help. I have had my 2010 Black LTZ Avi for 4 years now and love almost everything about it. Except my dashboard is about to fall into my lap. I have some other gremlins popping up also so I am looking at upgrading.

I thought I read on here where 2010 was the last year that the dashs were cracking so I started looking for 2012 and 2013s.  I test drove a beautiful 2012 gray Avi that is in great shape and when I got in the first thing we saw was the dash was cracked.

1. Does anyone have a dash that isn't cracked?
2. Does anyone have a preference over a 2012 or 2013 with similar miles.

Thanks,
Bill
