How Many 02 First Owners Are Left
« on: 02/17/06 12:04 PM »

I wanted to see if anyone knows or if the Orignal owners of 02s that still have their trucks would post up, just to see how many of us are left, and how many have recently upgraded to a newer year.

I traded my 02 Summit White Z71 last November for my 05 LT Z71 WBH SBM. Some of both I really like. Wish I could take the 2 of them and mash them together. Mike

I'm still here, although I have been so quiet and the Av has never actually been mine  :D.  48,500 miles and still going strong, although it's in getting a leaky shock replaced right now  :(.  I'm hoping we can be a 2 Av family later this year when the '07s come out!

I still own my '02. No desire to sell it. Was offered $20,000 last fall from a co-worker, and I turned it down being that I could not think of anything different that I could replace it with other than an EXT. When I bought mine, I got one with every option the colors inside and out that I wanted to make sure I wouldn't have any regrets that would send me shopping again.

Purchased it new in Feb 02, have 38K miles and just got back from the dealer with my scheduled oil and lube.  I do have my eye on the 07 AV and look forward to a possible trade in.  Oh yeah, on my way home a guy with a 02 AV (just purchased used) stopped me to ask about my sportwing.  Needless to say, I told him about the club and our local chapter.  Glad to see my AV can still turn heads.

Have my "original" '02. 106K, 3rd set of Goodyear HPs, still on original brakes, Mobil 1 5W30 since 10K, Intermediate steering shaft replaced at 35K, no sign of looseness since. still original Sachs rear shocks, replaced Bilsteins in front with Monroes. No oil usage to speak of between 5K changes, always use Delco PF59 filter. Replace rear axle oil with Mobil 1 75/90 every 30K, as well as fuel filter. New OEM air filter every 30K also. No squeaks, rattles or creaks, yet. Going for 200K. Can buy a lot of gas with no car payment...

Ever since 1997, I had been searching for a full size truck (at the time I owned an S10), Silverado, Ram. . . (no I didn't consider the Ford trash), neither of these grabbed my interest enough to justify a purchase.  When the Av came out, I immediately liked the new look.  I purchased my first Avalanche in Nov 2001.

After 95,000 miles, I just traded it in for an '06 on Feb 10th (nearly identical Z71).  Some things '02 is better, others '06 is better.  Overall '06 is a better vehicle.

Got our in Feb '02 and have loved every mile we put on it.

Not sure how many miles are on it, as I don't drive it that often.
I would guess it is around 50k miles on it now.

Love the cladding, so no plans on getting rid of it anytime soon.
Would only trade or sell for a new AV anyway.

Maybe in '08 GM will come to their senses and offer the cladding again.

still going...........................
have had 13 trucks, used to trade every 10-12 months (silverados, sierras, rams). 
93000 miles, mobil1 every 3k, no real interest to trade. 
every year after '02 GM decided to take something off instead of add on. 

only faults:
1. too few add-ons for '02s
2. HU changed out
2. BIGGEST-bed still leaks at tailgate where it meets #3 panel, did when I got it,
did after dealer adjusted everything, did after i added weatherstrip to tailgate,
but you know what, looked at an '06 this weekend, IT WAS LEAKING IN THE SAME PLACE,  so why trade??????????

only regret:
bought z66 instead of z71

If I got more checks in the mail than bills, and gas were .99/gallon, I might would trade for this:
changed to linky thingy2500 4WD
But 'till then, I will count my blessings,

Bought my 02 AV in January of 02.  Just turned 70,000 and looking to begin the lifting.  Wife can't complain about any mods since she is paid for.  The truck, not my wife.  Since the mods are on the way, NOT even thinking about getting rid of it.

 :help:
I do need some help though.  I want to lift and I am not sure if I will be able to fit her in the garage with a 6" lift and 35's.  I have a 7 foot/84" opening. 

She is a 1500, Z71 and I would like to keep the original wheels.  To actually keep my wife from complaining about more $$$ being spent.  I currently have 265/70/17's and would like to go to 315/70/17's.

I am new to this so any suggestions, measurements on what you have, height of your Av, etc. would be greatly appreciated.

I am interested in air lift kits or the "regular" lift kits, as long as they will let me keep my original wheels.....for now.
Thanks!

I've still got my '02.

I ordered her late summer '01 and got delivery Nov. '01.

Just turned over 35,500.  DH makes fun and says I can't see over the dash in my "tank". 

I really love it and i'm so torn up about getting something new.  I just don't know about the '07's.  They don't look as cool, but that's just my opinion.  And I NEED cladding!!!
Guess i'll wait to check out the Z71 in the Fall.

I still feel nostalgic toward my '02, only put 13k on it in 3 years. Screwed up when I ordered it in April '01 so I swapped to a loaded '04. I don't regret the decision, I just wish I could have kept both.

Still trucking with my 02.  Purchased 6/5/03 (my birthday).  78,000 miles and still loving it.  Probably won't ever trade up - especially since they may not have cladding anymore.

Purchased new October 2001, 40K, new battery and tires, everything still stock.  Can't say it's in "showroom" condition as have some straches from driving around on the ranch but it's interior is excellent.

I still enjoy it, it just looks better than a regular truck.  The 07's are cool but not the look that attracted me to my 2002.

Well I got one of the first 2003 models, not a 2002. I really like it. Have about 41,000 miles on it since dec 2002 new. Replaced the tires at 35,000. Those goodyears seemed to be unbalanceable. Put michelin on no problems. Had to add a little freon to recharge the AC only once last year, now it blasts cold even in 98 degree heat. Right before the warranty ran out I had all the creaks and squeaks fixed.

Sometimes when driving in town I still can't remember that I'm driving a much bigger vehicle than most people and I still get odd looks from other drivers. Maybe it's the truck or maybe it's because they think I'm spending my last penny on gas. It now costs $74 to fill it up.

I don't like high gas prices anymore than the next person, but I can still afford to put gas in it so I will keep driving it probably until the fenders fall off.

Still have my pewter 2002 Z-71 bought Aug 2002, 67000 miles. As a GM employee I tried to get a GM PEP vehicle to save money, but time was running out on the 0% 5Yr financing so I bought one off the lot with my employee discount.

The very next week I receive a letter from the GM PEP program saying a YELLOW 2002 Av was available. ??? As most of us know yellow was not an option in 2002 and was not available until 2003 model year. It was a test color for the PEP program (which is what the Performance Evaluation Program is used for). I was seriously bummed that I missed that truck by one week!! :( It would have been so cool to own a super rare color in a 2002 Av!!  And yes the VIN coding actually was verified as a yellow 2002 Av.

Well i think i got all u guys beat as to when we got it delivered, 5/26/01 with 8 miles and well technically my dad got her because i didn't even have a drivers license back then. :A: He got the first one off the truck and i remember being there when we drove it around and people were looking at us and giving us thumbs up and asking what is that thing? Too bad that doesn't happen anymore haha. But we took it offroading to the top of a local mountain the first day we got it!! And now shes all mine!!!!!






P.S. Like parts and pieces from what I've seen of the new 07 but i like the aggressiveness of the cladding on the older ones...

Since gas prices got so high, we have had some (nonserious) discussions about downsizing.  We were only towing a popup camper at the time.  Well, last month we bought a 26' travel trailer at 5000 lbs.

There will be no downsizing anytime soon!   :A:   Besides the Av is 4.5 years old and is only now approaching 50K miles.

2002 Z71 delivered around 9/16/01 and have crossed the 200,000 mile mark. STILL GOING STRONG! :A:

Good grief  :o Way to go, you must take good care of your AV  :B: Well, I am an 02 first owner and I'm still here but the AV is gone (see sig. below). Would loved to have held on to the 02 but after being laid off at the end of 02 I had to sell it after a few months  :needhug:. When I got a new job I bought a new 04 to replace it, and had nothing but little "drive you crazy" problems with it so traded it in about a month ago on one of the last cladded 06's. Really hoping it mirrors my 02 since the only thing that I can remember giving me a problem on that one was one of the bed panels started to leak, which was no big deal and I would have gotten it replaced under warranty if I hadn't had to get rid of the truck. Got a little over 5K on my new (ok, not brand new anymore) 06. Don't ever plan on getting rid of it regardless of gas prices. I have no commute (home office) so I mainly use it for weekends, errands, and GTG's!

I've still got my 02 and it's running like it's new with 162,000mi currently. The funny part is that I'm just now getting around to modding it some.

Hats off to you all! :1:

I wanted one from the first moment I saw one, but I really couldn't afford them when they came out.  Come Sep-Oct of 02, when the 03s first came out, I was still looking at slow bankruptcy if I bought one.  Finally, in May 03, the numbers were right.

Hope you keep your 02s forever!

Proud owner!  Bought 10/01; 53K miles.
Replaced the 16" stock tires w/ 20" touring Pirellis for a few years, but now wanting to replace those to make it look more like a truck again.  Had friends ask when I'll trade it in, and I've told them no plans to do so at all!  Like the darker cladding of 03+ better than light gray w/ the black truck, but like the cladding of all colors better than w/o.

Anyone put black rims on a black w/ gray clad Av?  Can't picture it too well in my mind, but I think that's the direction I'm headed.

Still have my '02. Turned 100k a few weeks ago. Did a tune up and put in Taylor TV50's and the truck is running better than the day I brought i home  :D

I have been thinking about getting a newer one but I don't like the '07s and I can't justify spending the money on an '06 when all I get is a truck with less miles and different color cladding.  I'm waiting on the Z-71's to come out and if I don't like those then I'm probably going to start doing some serious modding to update mine a little. 

Still love this truck  :1:

I got my 02 in 11/01.  I have 87,000 miles with it, but that is due to traveling back and forth 70 miles a day for a few years.  Now I'm back down to 20.

Original everything except brakes, tires, serpentine belt, a lot of motor oil, cabin filters, and factory mirrors swapped out with '03 power folding/turn signal mirrors!

Thinking about Gatorback (still owe Rob a call back when I get a chance), just looking for somewhere in NJ that I trust.

Other than that, regardless of tree sap and other assorted goodies, AVy's holding up and now that they don't sell cladded models, I don't want to give 'er up.  It is a great truck, I could not have been happier, other than the cladding fading.

My Av is going to be paid off in February when it turns five years old.  Only has 53K miles on it, and haven't had to perform many repairs or maintenance other then brakes, tires and I just had an A/C recharge.

The only think I don't like is the fading of the bed and sail panels, but that isn't too big a deal.

At some point I may start looking at a new Av, since I can't think of another truck I would want to replace the Av with.  But for now, I'm still loving the 02!   :A:

Purchased mine in 9/2002, been basically  :cool: over the 61000 miles I've driven.  Becoming a little  >:( over the intermediate steering linkage lubes and the recent carrier bearing rebuild.  Both should have been covered by a 100K drivetrain & steering warrenty -- as they are doing now.

I traded in my '02 NFE for an '04 wbh about two years ago. The deal was too good to pass up.

After 161000 miles I have put it on retirement. Trying to hold out till the 08 Hybrid Tahoe.   :B:

Still have my '02 Z71.  Just changed my tires after replacing the stock Wrangler ATs after 88,000 miles!  She is starting to shimmy & shake...(not sure why-Before and after new tires, but new tires did improve it by 80%)

4-Wheel Drive & ride can't beat it! 

'07s look fantastic...I know if I test drive one I will have the same feeling come over me as with the '02 - I bought it!

SRFNSNO  - Did you experience shimming/shuddering over 65-70 mph when traveling on uneven pavement?  How did you come up with the solution?  My dealer wants to have his mechanic take it for a day to diagnose.  From reading other posts including yours, more and more things can contribute to this problem. 

I will be in the dark in terms of ALL the "suggested" problems and fixes presented by the dealer vs the real problem and the real fix.

Thanks.

1st I am Running 35's and had 55K on them.
I was starting to get bump steer and it was time for some new tire. (I have a Stabilizer also)
When Changing the tire. the Mechanic shook the Wheel It wiggled back and forth (Jiggle it)
It should be tight. Mine was not.
also hag my alignment chked it was OK.

Others have had steering shaft issues.

I've had mine for 5 years next month and just keeps getting better with age. It should be turning 90k this or next week. I have done everything with it. I have towed with it, had it off road, I plow with it, and in the summer it transforms into a show/race truck :4:.

At 88k miles I was able to get a 13.5 1/4 mile run. The only thing that hasn't held up is the rear diff, but that's my fault. If I never did another thing to the truck I'd be happy, but I know that will never happen :A:

I still have mine.  2002 Z71 Green about 74,000 on it. No problems (knock on wood) only the lights for the dash RPM and the 4 small buttons (rear defrost, circulation and ac) no longer light up.  Do not like the look of the '07's and think removing the cladding was a practical and visual mistake (personal opinion).  BTW, new member to this site :)

I really like the 07' look but I'm not going anywhere for awhile.

Add me to the newly 02 list. Just got my 02 Summit White with 59k miles.  :wave: So far I like my 02 better than my 05 I had. It has options my 05 did not....like footwell lights, rear door lights, cabin air filter...etc. Call me crazy but I love the jump seat in the front better than my 05 console. I have more leg room up front.

I got mine in December of 2002.  Sunburst orange exterior and black leather interior.  Still smells new when you get in and has been babied.  32000 original miles-all of them totally enjoyable.  I still forget to LOCK the rear gate and it predictably falls open in the first mile or so.  Great vehicle.

hey yo...im new....to this site...but i bought my avalenche in jan 07, 2002. i had to get all the bells and
whistles...i got a champage silver...2500-with the 411 gearring (and it does make a huge difference) all leather, moonroof, audio package...camping package etc...etc...and i even had the bed line-X'd..... i paid 44k. but well worth it. my first week i had a computer chip supped up-went from 365hp-to 500 (after all its a 8.1 liter-might as well use it! i love this thing...well its getting a bit dinged up. my girlfriend got into a fender bender this winter with it (trucks body cladding needed to be replaced....but shes ok and she was preggers at the time-)i am still pissed-but she and babay are well (just delivered) so i went to such for another heavy duty-but it seems that going green is taking the fun out of shopping for another truck-i cant drive a pick-up-(doesnt feel the same) and i want the versatility of the bed....anyone agree with this assement with regards to the new avalenches out there?

First off .......Hello everyone, I'm new to this group.

 I still have my 02, just hit the 83K mark. So far I have had good luck with the truck but I am having small issues pop up now. The fuel pump just went out last week to the tune of $1,483 for repair.......... they also had to replace the ujoint since it was froze. The front differential is leaking and the tranny seems to take it's sweet time between shifts now when I really step on it. Anybody out there replace either the differential seal or the bearings on the front end?

FYI, I read in one of the blogs that people had some issues with the front shocks going out, especially the passenger side. That is a defect of GM's, I had a chance to speak "off the record" with the national parts guy from GM, they will replace it under warranty once and then it's up to you to front the bill..............at least that is the song and dance he told me.

The fix is to never use a jack to lift the front end since the shock takes the stress of having to stock the movement of the upper and lower A-arms as well as the weight of the tire.

Got my '02 Onyx Black NFE with 700 miles on Dec.31 2002.  It's still going strong at 60k miles, and I plan to keep it for as long as I can.  Only major problems is that the front driver shock started to leak at aroun 50k miles.  And also not my FTDRL are out...I need to diagnose it and hopefully it's just a blown fuse and not a fried harness.
My next mod will be to get Gatorbacked in DRK Gray cuz mine are faded now.

I am new to this site, but picked my baby up on Thursday February 28, 2002.  About 89,000 miles on her, Love my Truck!
I actually just took it to the Dealers for the 3rd time because the Brake pedal Pulses when I brake.  First Brakes are good, Second changed the Drivers side from Wheel Bearing, now they think it is the rotors.... Hmmm Bit happy that it took 3 times and some money to figure it out.  But that does not make me want to get rid of my baby blue!  Will keep her for a long time!!!  Works great out at our Property and for Hunting.

I still have my Red 02 Z71 with 55,000 and zero problems. Unfortunately for Chevy I'm gonna keep this one a long time. I could barely afford this one back in 02 and I'd have to hit the lottery to get a new one anyway. Best truck I've ever had.

I am new to this site, but picked my baby up on Thursday February 28, 2002.  About 89,000 miles on her, Love my Truck!

That's too weird because that's the exact date I picked mine up.  It was the last day that Chevy was offering $2002 rebates so I went for it.

Last weekend I went back to the dealer I bought it from to look at the 2007.  They had an orange LTZ that was tricked out and absolutely beautiful.  Then I saw the sticker price of $48K  :o  and decided the 2002 will have to last a few more years!    :B:

My father still has his original '02 1500 4x4, about 47,000 miles now. He is not a member (no internet). I bought a low-mileage Z-71 '02 last week just for the fact that I like his so well. Very happy with my red '02 so far. Installed my Prodigy brake controller this afternoon in the place of the ashtray, also my old BEL 950 radar detector wired right up to the spare block in the underdash panel. This vehicle rides so smooth and is so quiet (compaered to my silverado) I have trouble staying under 65 on the highway.

Got my '02 Z71 4x4 brand new and still have strangers complimenting it and how it looks.  Black with leather with 39,000 miles.  Never had any mods done...it's still 100% stock.  Curiosity has had me looking for a newer vehicle but once I jump back in the AV I can't pull the trigger on a trade!  I'll just drive it until it falls apart beneath me.

Still riding my '02 Heavy Chevy and I love it  :A:, although it starting to shudder a bit when shifting from 1st to 2nd.   My baby's at about 88000 miles & from what I've been reading, that's about the norm for the trannies to start acting up it the Aves.

Nov 01.....133K miles, original front brakes, no other problems other than the int. steering shaft. Got the new replacement a couple of months ago. Still drives and rides great. Change oil, (Mobil 1), every 5k, new fuel filter, rear axle fluid, (mobil 1), and transmission fluid and air filter every 30K. Original rear shocks, replaced fronts with Monroes, ( however there did not seem to be anything wrong with the OEM Bilsteins, just thought it must be time.) No other work of any kind done on vehicle. Amazing truck...

Still here...  April 17th 2002, 18 miles on it.  Today, 151,000.

Only minor maintenance issues with the truck, and after the abuse I put it through and the offroading, that's saying something!

I think the worst thing I had happen was the knuckle on the front diff crumbled, and that was an aftermarket drive shaft anyhow, so not the AV's fault!!

Bought mine in Oct 03 second owner.  No probs, but just started towing an 18 ft TT pioneer Spirit.  My mechanic is doing the 50,000 and 52,500 Mile service.  He is also going to  install a Tranny cooling Unit in it.  She is the only vehicle garaged full time.  My wife's Bonneville has to stay outside in the summer.  Green has 54900 on her now.  Still owe alot but hopefully will pay her off before next October.  Was toying with getting a 2500 to pull the TT with, but I really love my '02 green machine.

Me!  First post here to boot!!!  I bought mine Dec 2002, it has 92K miles on it, Light Pewter 4x4.   No problems except tranny went out at 80K, GM didn't cover it.   Had the plastic cladding re-done at GM by Dr.  Vinyl; good job, much better than the Armodillo products of years past.   GM will do it at no cost too!

Still have my '02 Indigo.  Now at 99k miles.  She's paid off, and I got her in 11/02.  I'll hold onto her as long as she'll let me.

Course, gettin' ready to change plugs for the first time.  But I think it is needed.  I noticed a log of hesitation backing up with the A/C on the last few days.  A little more gas usually solves the problem :D

EnkieAvalanche still has his '02 Indigo Blue, he's still online but can't post.

I think Glenn got his in April or May 2001, it's one of the first.

Still have mine.  Still loving it.  CAFCNA still Awesome!

Stearing column fixed last year and still no clunks.  New battery and tires (Revos), too.  All off of advice from the site.

Just paid for a new tranny, cladding on sail panels just starting to look discolored.

Otherwise, stock all around and still running strong.

Planning to put the drinkholder mod into the rear bumper, but having trouble finding the right sized insulated holder.

Woo hoo!

I've still got mine also (Z71). . .  just spun 58K coming back down from NH tonite . . .  she's still pretty stock except for a few exterior touches & new Cooper sneakers back at 53K (originals still had more miles to go, but were dry rotting out on the sidewalls between the tread lugs!)

Love the Ole girl, just wish GM would do sumthin bout the damned ON-Star issue!

Still have mine.   I bought it in August 01, but I only have 49K on it.   Other than a few scratches from some camping, it has been a great truck.    For me, I am just getting past the new phase, and haven't really done anything too it.   This fall I am going to put a 6" lift and upgrade the suspension, tires, etc.   This is the first time I have been back to the fan club since I bought, so it looks like I have some ready to do before I start upgrading.

2002 2500 8.1 purchased new.  still own with 33k miles.  never been back to the dealer since it was new except for tailgate cable recall.  almost flawless truck.  a little piston slap until it warms up but not to bad considering some i've heard.

Just an update, I posted earlier, I think at 85K miles.

Still have her, now at 105K, and I still get compliments. No major issues (KOW). Just changed out the Elec. Brake Control Module with a rebuilt from Module Master. Worked great!

I love my truck!

We may not have owned her first (Bought our 2002 Z71 used with only 19K back in May of 2003.), but she is our first AV.  The previous owner was a salesman at the James Wood of Denton dealership in Texas.

She now has just over 71K on her.
