Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2004 Chevrolet Avalanche Owner Comments

problem #3

Oct 272011

Avalanche Z71 5.3L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 119,303 miles


window regulator switch failed. VERY common on chevy trucks/avalanches of this era 1999-2004 at least.

Take door panel out and replace window regulator. Part alone is around $100 PER DOOR.

So if you have 4 doors.......400 in parts if they all failed roughly. That does not include labor. And the worst part is.........the new part you buy from the store will eventually fail too. It is no better, you are just replacing the faulty part with a new one that is designed bad and gonna fail in time as well. My 93, &94 Chevy trucks never ever had that problem. Prob , crap design & cheap parts made in china.

Avalanche 1500 8 cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 50,000 miles

The electric passenger side window does not work most of the time, sometimes it does ? I had it down while driving and it started raining, it took two people standing on the side of the road in the rain with one pulling up on the window and the other pushing the electric window button. You would think that after years of the power window motor invention that the sharp minds at Chevrolet could figure out how to make electric window motors that would last longer than 3 years.
