Recall information on the Chevrolet Avalanche is available from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration at Odi-NHTSA-DOT.gov or the portal to that site at Recalls.gov. The hybrid vehicle that was a cross between a pickup and an SUV was sold by Chevrolet between 2002 and 2013 and had several recalls.
The vehicle's first model year generated four recalls that included problems with substandard lighting, leaky fuel filters, unwanted anti-lock braking system activation and faulty tailgate cables. In its final production year, the Avalanche only had one recall. Many trucks were manufactured with broken steering lock cables or malformed steering column lock actuator gears. This allowed the vehicle to shift out of park without the key in the ignition or the brake pedal being depressed, causing an increased risk that the truck could roll away unattended.
