    That is surprising....... must have been rigged! They are nice, but not my taste.

    I would have guessed the F150, Tundra or Tahoe @ #1.

    Here's a quote from the main story.

    "This survey has nothing to do with sales volume since plenty of cars sell well but don't make their owners as happy as cars that are purchased less often. Also, there's a tendency for more emotionally engaging or "quirky" cars to do well in this survey since owners tend to identify with them more, according to J.D. Power."

    Makes sence.... they are kinda "quirly" :slap:

    I've just never understood them. They are a crew cab, with a useeless box.... but than so is a crew cab!! (At least the 5'8" boxed ones, like I had last!!)

    I'm glad to see the Avy getting some love. I've owned a ton of cars/trucks and the Avalanche is my favorite all around vehicle. It does everything I need it to do, drives great and still looks good. It wouldn't make sense to use it as a construction-type work truck but for just about anything else, it's phenomenal. I think a lot of people would be surprised at how useful it is if they used it for a week.

    Only complaint is that you can't access the cargo area without folding down the entire rear seat. Should've done a 40/60 split that folded individually.

    The only reason I can think of why they didn't do the 40/60 is because then you can't use the midgate to store the back glass.

    I wished it were more accessible from the cab though.
