The big overall question!
Looks like most would own again!
How is your AV doing?

It depends on what they have for propellant, and when. The gasoline fiasco didn't seem to change things much; they're still producing gasoline (gasoline/e85) only Av's. When they find a more cost-effective fuel, and maintain at least 80% of the range, maybe so.

At least a hybrid, then maybe.

The grain alcohol production is not the answer, IMO.

okay, Okay I'll bite! 
I purposely held my DD when I heard the AVA was being introduced! 
I was headed towards a Extended Cab, even entertained the AWD Silverado SS.
We bought the wife a 02 Tahoe while I waited for the bugs to be worked out. 
In 04 on my B-Day I drove by the lot and saw my AVA :o  I drove straight to the wife and picked her up from work and showed her the AVA she even said "Honey we got to have that Truck".  To me the wait was well worth it.
So no I wouldn't want to get rid of my 04, :needhug: but if she had to go I would buy another AVA again :A:

'03 Z66 and I voted yes. The only trips i took to the dealer were for the tailgate cables, a bad fuel tank gasket, and I had the review mirror replaced becuase the temp/compass was always messed up.

I'll bite as the first 2007 owner to reply (but not nearly the longest ownership experience yet.. with only 2 full days under my belt now).

I voted yes.  Then again, I would've had an Av years ago if-

1. I could've afforded it (2002-2003), even with the cladding, which I didn't (and don't in most cases) care for.  No offense to those of you that love it.
2. There would've been any at the dealership (Oct 2004, NO Avs on the lot, ended up with a Trailblazer)
3. The only Av on the lot would've either
   a. Been equipped as well as the Silverado I bought AND been priced fairly close (instead of less equipped but $2k more), or
   b. Been priced lower than the Silverado (since the Av had much less equipment)

So when the 2007 photos were released and I was actually in a good financial situation I jumped on it.  Might call me a serious Av fanatic, just waiting for the right opportunity.

And the best part- as much as I was turned on by what I've read everywhere, I still didn't expect the amount of pride I feel after switching from the Silverado to the Av.  I knew I'd like it better, but after only two days with it I'm actually a bit surprised by HOW MUCH better I like it  :A:.  I was starting to have second thoughts about going through with the whole thing last week, and fully expected to miss the Silverado quite a bit, even if the Av made me happy.  But I'm finding that I DON'T miss it at all!

Good job with this one, Chevy.   :B:

After I got my 2002 AV back in 2001, I thought it was the best truck I had ever owned/driven. When the new interior came out in 2003, I decided that in 2004 I would get another AV. In 2003 I got a 2004 2500 AV and loved it even more then my 2002.

I sold the 2004 AV last year and after seeing the 2007's I thought that "This truck is only getting better"

Well I finally got an 07 AV LTZ. After putting 1000 miles on it, I am dissapointed in the whole truck.
After 2002, GM has steadily tightened the leash on the performance characteristics (Torque Management) Sure the 2007 looks different then the original AV and it still has a Midgate, but the "being One with the vehicle" feeling is gone.

I always felt that on the original Av, I was driving the truck and could feel everything it was doing.
On my 2007, I feel the AV is driving me and the driver sensation is minimal at best.

The 2007 feels heavy and massive.
Both my 2002 and 2004 Av's felt more nimble and predictable.

I do love all the new gadgets on the 07's and if those were all present on the previous AV, I would probably go back.

The DOD is a joke.

Just my opinions of course

Have had 02 and 04 and 07 Av's.  I sold the 07 and downsized.
The 04 was my favorite.

People are not posting in this thread but are voting. I don't think one or two bumps a year are out of the way, kind of keeps it going....... : :B:

Thank you z66 BUTCH, yes that was my intent for the bumps. Back in 2004 when I started these polls I asked for them to be tagged or whatever it's called so they stay at the top of each problem section to make them easy for new members to find.That didn't happen so I try about once a year to bring the polls to the first page so that newer members can see and vote on them or answer a question they may have on a problem.
Also I was hoping that more than a few hundred people would cast their votes considering the thousands of members we have. I was also hoping that Chevy was monitoring the site and maybe if a problem pattern emerged then maybe they could do work on solving the problems.
I admit I'm not as optimistic about things as I was back in 2004 but I don't like to give up if I think my efforts may help someone. I would like to see many happy and confident owners of the AV and if the polls can help show a true picture of AV ownership and not just complaints I will think this once or twice a year effort is worth it,at least to me.
To answer the queston, I guess I care somewhat but I am not asking anyone else to care.
I also have no problem with anyone else's polls or threads, If I am not interested I just don't open the thread......I also don't criticize those who post what they feel is relevant.

Not to be critical of bringing the old polls back up once in a while but this poll in particular is slightly irrelevant, I had an '02 for three years and have had an '04 ever since. I suggest you close this poll with information left intact and replace it with a new poll, multiple choice as many have owned more than one Avalanche.

Maybe Original Owner Satisfaction By Year ? and a second poll for Second Hand AV Owners ?
