Chevrolet Avalanche Prices Paid and Buying Experience

124

Comments

  • If you are looking to buy a 2004 the current rebate is $3500 plus $1000 if you finance through GMAC, and an additional $500 if in the military. I think the $1500 rebate is currently on 2005 models. Given the state of the economy and rising gas prices, I'm sure dealers will have trouble moving the 2005s as well. That being the case, it's only a matter of time before the rebates on 2005s increase. Though it's impossible to predict when or if the rebate will reach $4000.

    If you plan on keeping the truck more than 5 years I would recommend trying to find a 2004 with the options you are looking for. Dealers are eager sell them.
  • Why did you say 'if' we plan to keep it for 5 years 'then' buy a 2004? Thanks for responding.

    Chevrolet sent several dozen Z71 WBH Avalanches to New Orleans for the 2003 Bass Masters Tournament. After the show they were offered to the public at $10,000 off list price. The trucks were all equipped the same way in the same color. Mileage varied at 200 to 400 miles per truck. List price was over $42,700. My price was then $32,700 plus TT&L. GM would not let me use my GM Gold Card rebate so I save it to use on my 2004 Grand Prix GTP with the COMP package that I bought in 1/04. (Very fast car)

    I need a new truck for my growing business, and one of my requirements is it must have stability control and side airbags for safety. (I currently have an 00 Mercedes ML 320) After an initial search, the Honda Ridgeline and Chevy Avalanche were the only 2 models that met my needs. After further evaluation, I found the Avalanche provided the most flexibility with the folding midgate and lockable tailgate and cover. If the Ridgeline had the folding midgate, it would hands down be the winner from a reliability standpoint, but I figure with the new extended GM warranty, I should be fine.

    Any experiences out there anyone wants to share? I'm looking for an LT3 2WD, since there's not much of a price spread between the LS and LT trims. Prices paid, dealer willingness to deal, and OTD pricing BEFORE TTL would be helpful to know. :shades:

    Boy, the Avalanche forums are slow these days. Update on our purchase. Ended up buying an LTZ 2wd, sport red metallic with sunroof. No nav or rear dvd. Sweet ride! The DOD though doesn't seem to kick in very often though. Hopefully after the break-in period it will. Avg mpg so far is around 18 mpg - not bad!
  • Anyone in Eastern Massachusetts with some feedback on outgoing 06 4x4's? Are they dealing yet? My 2003 is starting to N&D me to death so I would like to upgrade to a new one before I hit the 100k miles mark.
  • Car Man:

    Recently got a quote on an 2007 Avalanch LT (sale price $33,321). Asked for figures on a 60 month buy or 36month/12K mile lease with no money down. This is what they gave me, which seems high.

    $634 month (includes tax) on lease
    $750 month on 60 month buy.

    Is this reasonable, and if not what would be?
  • I got a loaded 07 LTZ used with 1700 miles for $35.7k out the door.. it was in service for 2 months then traded back for a different car from the same dealer.... i'm very happy... let me rephrase that; I could not be happier
  • that included an extended warranty package that i had refunded. so make that $33.8k
  • jfritschjfritsch Posts: 958
    Just Fyi but OTD can include $300 - $2500 in sales taxes depending on the State so it is better to itemize the details so folks can get the true deal.

    enjoy

    I believe you should be able to get about 9.5% off the MSRP on a 45K AV. I am on my 3rd one now!
  • jfritschjfritsch Posts: 958
    I would want $10000, or 20% off a 45k avalanche at least. They were blowing out the 37k 06's last year for 10k off.
    Silverado's too.

    Edmunds TMV has a MSRP 38000 Avalanche LS Going for 34000.... What a joke, many times that TMV is a gift to the manufacturers.

  • Great deal. Who was your dealer. I would like to see if I can get a simlar deal on an 07 avalanche.
  • jhinscjhinsc Posts: 399
    If your deal was on an 07, it sounds pretty outlandish to me. For an 06 or earlier, maybe it's possible.
  • 2007 LS $36,380 sticker this is a 48 month lease with 12,000 miles a year : i owe 21,500 on my trade-in that they are giving me 18,700 ( 06 subaru forester x ) 0 down $646.05 this sofar is the best i have gotton , my wife is not really happy with this car and loves the avalanche its just the extra 150 a month thats going to hurt ! but we still owe another 4 1/2 years on this car so ? what do you guys think ?

    " got a loaded 07 LTZ used with 1700 miles for $35.7k out the door.. "

    Not so outlandish for a used vehicle...
  • All,

    I am considering buying a 2007 Avalanche Z71. The MSRP is $42300 and out the door, I can get it for $37,500. Does this sound like a good deal. I am in Las Vegas. If not a good deal, what do you think I should pay for this.

    thanks

    I live in south Orange County California and am searching for a good deal on an 07 LTZ 4WD. Anybody snagged any good deals now that the 08s are hitting the showrooms?

    Does anyone know if GM will be offering any additional incentives for Labor Day or after the current incentives expire on Sept 4th?
  • I couldn't agree with you more... you're dead on accurate. Edmunds TMV is a joke. According to them I would of spent an extra 2 grand on my last purchase and an extra grand on a purchase I made a year ago.

    where is everybody....can't believe no one posts to this anymore.. I tried to start a new one but it was ended and reverts to this one..

    anyone have any info on prices paid for a 2010 Avalanche.. I just missed the one I wanted in Wilmington NC at Jeff Gordon Chevy... GMAC..oops now ALLY.. was 'late' with sending me my Bonus Cash certificate of $1500 bucks... so I waited a week longer .. got the Bonus Cash certificate and the unit I was looking at got sold .. Black Z71 4wd with 2 tone Cashmere interior

    I have a black 2008 Avalanche that's coming off a lease in 3 weeks...

    now if they just stick 0% and 72 on the new 2011 models I'd be happy
  • I purchased a 2010 Black Chevy Avalanche LTZ on March 31, 2010. It was listed at $51,820, I paid $44,200. I obtained my own financing at 3.0%.
  • 2011 Avalanche LT w/ offroad Z71 package
    MSRP $44,980
    Buying for $40,220 includes fees
    + 8% tax
    =$43,437 - $8,000 rebates =

    $35,437 otd

    72months @ 2.79%
    535 per month

    This seems like a great deal. Thoughts???? We have to pay off our current lease with 3 payments remaining for a total of $1,019. Is this deal worth paying off lease early or should we wait the three months and try for a 2012 hoping the rebates will be the same?

    Bought my 2WD Avalanche new in March 2010 in eastern NC. It's an LT with additional option packaging that brings it pretty much on par with an LTZ. MSRP was $47,500, including a $1,000 discount for the special option packaging...otherwise, list totaled $48,500.

    I had a lot of pricing incentives in hand at the time, including the local dealer discount, Chevy Truck Month discount, former Pontiac owner certificate, GM Card points and a small trade-in allowance on my '02 Bravada (167,000 miles) that had been technically troublesome almost from Day One.

    Closed the deal with an offer of $37,500 ($7,500 cash plus $30K bank loan for 60 months @ 3.67%).

    Seemed like a great deal until the dealer had to replace the valve lifters a week later @ 100 miles (built with wrong parts!) and then the transmission torque converter went south 7 months later at 12,000 miles. (Yes, I have a few posts under the "Avalanche Transmission Problems" thread. ) Still driving it, but my faith in the reliability of this product is badly damaged.
