I purchased my 08 Avy LT, three weeks ago.  According to the carfax statement, it sat for two months and racked up 42 (test drive) miles before I bought it.  I found it on the next to the last row in the back parking lot.  My wife was thinking that it was placed "back there" on purpose for someone who wanted it but could not acquire it at the present time. 

I will be reunited with my Avy in three days!

Have never heard from any dealer about my 02 Z71, they would most likely as i just turned 79000 miles here in Pa. if you tell your insurance co. that you only drive 50 miles a day after they checked milage i saved 400.00 off my next bill.     

Not sure how that works ???, 50 miles/day would be 18,250 miles/year, above the national average, I would think they might try to raise your bill.

My dealer gave up asking some time ago, my 1994 S10 and '04 Avalanche have under 50,000 miles each.

I bet I could get fair market value for my Avalanche from a dealer  :B:

Mine still hasn't given up and that includes mechanics come yearly inspection time........even admirers I find waiting in the shopping lot, especially when its metal flake sparkles in bright sunlight........almost every time I roll in my cherry condition Fairway Green '13 Z71 with under 7K miles with Nav/REC all the chrome options and auto folding mirrors not available with the "Z" package that I swapped from my '12 before trade. So much interest that I'm careful where I drive and park.

Burned all my mileage in my '12 and now burning up the '15 AWD Traverse to assure my last Avy, now relegated to a Sunday cruiser, will outlive me. It will sit in the garage if there is salt on the roads and I'll even rent a vehicle rather than chance using a parking garage/lot or parking in a craphole neighborhood.

Mine is now locked away in a storage unit until we move and buy a place with a garage big enough.

My dealer offered a trade when I was there doing a service update. He said the truck is in high demand and wanted to do a deal. I walked out to the show room floor and pointed to the 2018 Chevy Corvette for about $120k. the look on his face was like he was going to pass out. I said I would be glad to drive it out right now.
For some reason he had to pass on the offer :laugh: I also get letters from the local Chevy  dealers . so far the highest offer has been  32k for the 2013 Black diamond with 60k on it. Probably could get that or more on a private sale.

I get them all the time, so I ask, sure, Im looking for a 2018 Avalanche.  Then they say, they arent made anymore, and I said, I know.  So quit asking me.

Sounds like a good mechanic.

Make sure you keep using him as he may want to make sure your truck stays in good shape for when you finally are ready to let it go.

Just don't let your mechanic know that.

A dealer doesn't want your 6 year old poopbox.  The dealer wants you to buy a new truck.

Turns out that second gen late model rust-free poopboxes are holding their value pretty good!  :thumbsup:
