Anybody have any experience with Chevy avalanches? I'm looking at replacing my 93 K1500 with something a little bit newer. I want back seats and a v8, which is why I'm getting rid of my 93. I'm looking at mostly 2009 and up with 125000 miles or less. I don't drive that much, I work at home, so I don't wanna pay for really low miles cause I'm a cheap bastard. And i don't want a lwb truck right now. So an avalanche or Tahoe are my sights. I know general soft spots and Chevy trucks, like fuel lines brake lines. did both of those on my 93. watch for frame rust. Exhaust manifold bolts. Are the 6 speed automatic OK? Does the mid gate setup cause any problems? Is it useful?
