Then get the Camaro. Too many people bought trucks and SUV's 'just in case' and also because, well, see highlighted. Besides, the Camaro will get better gas mileage.

Yeah I would say that if you don't "need" the utility then def wait and get a Camaro. It will be worth the wait. But nothing wrong with getting the Avalanche, it's a great truck and if you can get one for 10k off then that's a pretty good deal. I think they are awesome trucks. Very versatile.

I've always driven small two door coupes my whole life, 84 Celica, 89 Daytona Turbo, 01 Cavalier 2dr, and currently my 06 Cobalt SS/SC.

I sorta went through what you are going through, because I plan on breaking away from the small 2dr coupe mold for a while (even though I love them) and plan on getting a TrailBlazer SS. Then after I pay it off get a Camaro SS or a used Corvette or something later down the road.

I also believe that you said you won't be able to purchase one until around summer of next year, which hey that's like 6+ months away so that's a ways away. If you don't want to wait that long then jump on the Avalanche, but just really think it through because you don't want to be kicking yourself in the pants 6 months down the road when it's summer and the Camaros are out and you're saying "I wish I had waited to get the Camaro", so also try and think of what option you think you will regret the least, but only you can make that decision.

Yes, but they still have that same plastic on top of the bed, around the top of the tailgate and surrounding the rear window. It still fades over time and looks crappy unless you paint it.

They have a product called gatorback that stops that fade. If you r under warranty the dealer will cover the cost under warranty. But the fact that GM knows of the problem since 2002 and doesnt apply gatorback at the factory is odd.
