Still here. Purchased on 2 May 2002 from Family Chevrolet in Shingle Springs California. I remember about a month after I bought it and had signed the papers, they called and said that I owed them additional money since they calculated the fees incorrectly.

I remember laughing about that. I never did call them back. I never heard from them again. They went out a business a few years later. I can't help but feel somehow responsible.  Big laughter with tears

Oh well.

About 231,000 or so.

Still have mine, purchased new in August 2001 in Bellevue, WA. It has about 160K miles on it, and I've just started towing a travel trailer with it. One transmission repair at about 80K, and that's it for major stuff. I do need to find and fix one or more cab leaks though.

It's been a long while since I've posted, but I bought Clifford new on 1-16-02 and still have him.  162k miles and still rollin'!

This is the list of major items I have fixed up to this point:
- 2 windshield replacements
- Alternator
- A/C compressor
- 2 ABS controllers
- 1 Airbag module corroded due to water leak
- Rear axle bearings
- 3 sets of tires
- 2 transmission flushes and fills
- Anti-knock sensors
- Water pump

Other than that, the drivetrain is still 100% factory (and still on original muffler and exhaust!).  The LM7 engine, which has had Mobil 1 since the factory oil was drained out, still purrs like a kitten.  I'm still on the original fuel pump (knock on wood).

I have had my 02 since new.  It has approx. 170k on it and over half of those have been pulling a 6000 lb work trailer all over the Southeast.  I am considering repainting and coating the cladding.  Just installed 20 inch Silverado wheels and Mich. tires.  It has been overall the best vehicle I have owned in 50 years of driving. chevy

What were the symptoms of the rear axle bearings needing to be replaced?  Reason I ask is going around turns I hear a noise from the rear end like a muffled scraping noise that isn't present when driving straight.  I just did an entire refresh of all the front steering components and omg I can't believe how much better the truck drives now. 
guess 180K does wear stuff out!

You better replace the fuel pump!   Mine died 40 miles out side of Grand Junction CO just about 45 minutes after I had gotten off a mountain back road where you see about 10 cars a day and no cell coverage....

Bought mine in June of 01

Still have my 02 Avalanche Z71 that I bought new in July 2001. It has over 224,000 miles on it and runs well. I do have to take care of a minor oil pan gasket leak. Even with this leak it still gets 2000 miles on a quart of oil. I saw items on google that a new generation AV is coming in 2018. Would be nice as this was one of the best and most versatile vehicles we ever owned. Hate to get rid of it.

Wow JJL/RML you have been a member since 2004 and only 8 posts? (must be the strong silent type.. Cheesy )
Personally I would't hold my breath for a new Avalanche. Most of the stuff on Google has been discussed in old threads on this site from photos of a SEMA concept AV from about 10 or so years ago passed around as new or the 2018 Chevy Silverado "High Desert" model pickup that has sail panels and hard bed covers with side storage bins....No midgate though. Check the threads for photos.
Good going on keeping your AV on the road!
