#1 of 28 Drivers side wind noise
Jun 10, 2007 (4:56 pm)
I have a 07 Av LTZ and have had a problem since day one with it. Its a drivers side wind noise coming from either the drivers side door or the drivers side rear door. Starts about 55 mph and gets increasingly worse as the speed increases. It doesn't leak when raining out or going thru the car wash. But, the damn wind noise when cruising down the highway just sucks and is annoying as hell.
Anyone had this problem and is there a fix?

Any one have a problem trying to isloate a dragging/rubbing problem on your 2005 Avalanche. I have the Avalanche LT 4X4. My dealer says it's tires; but, I've went to Michelins now (quieter) and the noise is more noticeable. Thanks! Skip

I had the same problem with my '05. The molding at the top of the door was creased slightly. Sometimes when the window was rolled up it would create a small gap not enough for water to leak in but enough to make that iritating noise. I straightened out the molding and have not had a problem since.
Hope this helps.

No sound inside my Avalanche...No radio, no open door ding, no clicking from the blinkers..nothing. Would this be a speaker issue, maybe a fuse?

I have one and it as a lot of air noise I have taken it back 2 times and the are telling me that it is within tolerances. Any ideas it seems that it is an excuse.

Go back to your dealer and ask him to show you the wind noise on the "Options" list or "Features" list on your window sticker. Nonsense. File a complaint with the BBB or go to another dealer.
#8 of 28 Intermediate steering column
Feb 26, 2008 (10:06 am)
I had an 04 Avalanche that needed the intermediate steering column repacked. From what I heard at the time, it was common in this truck. I'm now looking at the new 08 Avalanche. Is this still a problem. I think there was a service bulletin for it, but no corrective remedy(recall) on it.
#9 of 28 popping noise while turning left
Apr 20, 2008 (6:23 pm)
I have an 07 AV LT with 10K miles. Right after buying it, it started making this popping noise after the engine is warm. It only happens while turning and as the car gets warmed up the louder the popping is. You can even feel it under the drivers pedals. Te dealer insists that is the lubrication on the frame mounts but this only helps 1 or 2 days. Any one has had this problem?

asylum575, I have a 03 GMC Sierra Denali (by the way Sierra Denali is a ) and they did the same thing with mine! Later they had to replace my steering shaft. Lucky it was covered under warranty.
