2002 Chevrolet Avalanche Owner Comments

problem #2

Mar 152005

Avalanche 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles


While driving, the front seat back moved on its own. The driver tried to make an adjustment with seat, but it failed to adjust properly. The problem still remains, and the driver was able to maintain control of the vehicle. The vehicle was taken to the dealer for inspection and the mechanic advised driver that the seat was operating as designed. The left front seat back cover bolts were loose at the frame. The fog lights contained condensation.

The driver's seat would move while driving at any speed. When applying normal braking consumer can hear a popping noise. The truck would jerk a litte and continue on before stopping. Also, when applying the brake at a sudden stop wheels would lock up. The dealer was notified.
