I found this Avalanche online. When I talked to the salesman I asked repeatedly if it had rust. That was my biggest concern. The pictures looked fine and he assured me that it didn't have "any more rust than any vehicle that age." I got a ride from my boss from Rapid City because he was going there anyway, but I didn't have a ride back. When I got there I noticed a lot of rust underneath and on the engine. They assured me it was a local trade-in, but I found out later it was from New Jersey. When I was driving home, the check-engine light came on so I went back to the dealership. They reset it and said it was nothing. Within 15 minutes the light came on again. They told me to have it looked at when I got back to Rapid City. It also started leaking antifreeze when I got back to Rapid. The mechanic said it needed a new water pump. J&R decided they would give me $100 toward the $350 repair. Also, I had put $200 down and they took 3 weeks to get it back to me. I feel like they were deceptive and if he had been honest I would not have bought the truck. But since I didn't have a ride back home, I felt like I had to. I should not have put myself in that situation I realize but I just trusted them too much.
