    Re: [RC] Chevy Avalanche - Lysane Cree

    Hi Roy,

    Well, I am in Canada too so if your Chevy guy is saying that about the warranty then its probably going to apply to me as well! :)    I did see on the GM Canada website though that there are two "models" of the Avalanche - one with a stronger engine than the other, more horsepower. I wonder if this would make any difference, or perhaps the warranty is the same for both (?)

    How sad, I thought the Avalanche was cool and would have looked mighty fine in front of a gooseneck....Oh well... I suppose I could look at other trucks that are similar with the extended cab :)
