Bought my '03 1500 with 185k miles.  Oil pressure is about 10 at idle, goes up to 30-35 when I throttle up.  I'm going to convert it to a manual transmission and have a replacement engine to drop in at the same time (actually have a whole 5-speed 4wd drivetrain).

Bought a 2004 Z66 brand new in December of 2003.  I now have 209,000 miles on it and the most significant repairs that I have made are replacing the water pump and having the alternator rebuilt.  This has been an absolutely fabulous vehicle!

This is a "good news" thread for me to be reading considering all the trouble I'm going through getting my new bumper and wheels installed.  I was seriously beginning to question my decision to not just keep it stock after my accident in December.  I got it in Aug of 2003 and it now has 66k miles on it now, so at this rate I'll hit 200k in July of 2026.   :P

I bought my 2002 Sunset Orange 1500 Avalanche in Nov.2001, I now have 242,000+ miles and still going strong. I replaced my transmission and rear end at 160.000 and replaced the fuel pump at 172.000. Other than that there have not been any major issue with my truck. I travel a minimum twice a year from Phoenix, AZ to East Texas 70 miles from Shreveport, La.. So far the truck has been there and back 15 times.
   My only problem I have with the Avalanche is the key (ignition), it has locked on me twice once under warranty the other cost $225.00 dollars. There have been 7 family members purchased Avalanche's after riding with me in mine. I'm now looking forward to getting my second one next year, only bad thing is that I can't get CLADDING AND BUMPER that came on the first models.

165K here...mostly highway miles.  

I only run Synthetic oil...usually moble one.
Trans, transfer case, diffs have Royal Purple.  

Every 50k miles I do a complete fluid flush.  Engine, trans, transfer case, diffs.
I had that "crank position sensor " problem and replaced that

Chevy replaced the gas tank after many problems the first year...it wouldnt fill.  

I have replaced one of the Catalytic converters, the brakes, tires, etc...

It does burn one quart of oil between oil changes....but has done that since new.  

It seems like I have to replace the serpentine belt every 3 months or so because it squeels.  


Now 206 K miles..

Recently did a lot of work.  
Rebuilt rear end
new windshield
new alternator
new fan clutch
new magnaflow cat back
new water pump
needs new tires soon
needs new radiator

***UPDATE***

I now have 307,000 original miles on my Avy. I thought she was unstoppable. On 27APR11 at exactly 0600, i found the one thing that could bring her down. At the same time, my family was given a second chance to evaluate our own lives and the lives of those around us. Once the rain finally stopped, I found the my truck crushed by a 24" diameter oak tree that once afforded us shade in the mornings.

Iv'e got 208,000 on an 04'. Nothing major, just routine stuff. Front end, shocks, brakes, tires. I change the oil every 3000 miles , and have used synthetics since day one. It has been a very reliable vehicle.

I'm at about 175,xxx.  Plan on keeping the Avy, well, my dad does, so I guess I'll keep driving it over 200k.   :B:

I've had several AC resistors die on me, and recently the resistor that controls fan speeds 1-4.  I can't seem to find the write-up on how to fix it, I remember seeing it in the past.
For now it either blows on full blast (setting 5), or I roll the windows down.     :P

I feel good reading all this...I have an '03 with 71,000 miles.  Just got my cluster rebuilt because the PRNDL light was out.  Been a great truck and plan on keeping it.  I can't believe my brakes are still good.  Pads still look  hardly used!

Hey, all you 200K+'ers out there...

Do you use I guess what would be known as regular oil, or the synthetic? I have a 2004 with 59K and would like to know if the switch is worth the extra cost? 6 quarts will be pretty expensive oil change, even at home. Let me know and thanks!
