Pros

This SUV is roomy and comfortable.  I'm just ready for something new. I can honestly say it has never left me stranded.  

Cons

This SUV is a rear wheel drive

Love At First Sight — I have replaced the gear shifter, the power steering lines as well as the instrument panel. It has tinted driver and passenger windows, moon roof, V6 engine, abs breaking system, aftermarket HD Radio(JVC) and an after market Remote car starter.

Pros

Great space for a SUV. Easy to DIY maintenance like Plugs, Shocks\struts, fuel filter, oil changes.

Cons

This SUV has had numerous reported issues with poor engineering. Issues like headlights shorting out, doors locking\unlocking on their own, speakers stop working when turning left, overhead lights only turn off when using the override button. Hitting any bump causes numerous rattling that sounds like vehicle components are falling off and causing a hazard to the public in general, even after NEW shocks all the way around have been replaced. This vehicle has shut off in the middle of an intersection

2004 Trailblazer Ls — Despite all the cons, and the fact I'll never own another Chevrolet with this being the 3rd one that I've owned with numerous problems, I still like this SUV. I Have spent about $1500 on maintenance in the 7 years I'v owned it. I have replaced numerous items myself easy enough.

Good At First. Bad As We Went On — I loved the look of the vehicle especially with the two-tone leather. I have had amny mechanical problems, less than 50,000 miles and the gas lines rotted, the under carriage is rusted, I have many electrical problems, something on the engine went...I got a bad one. I will never buy a Chevy again!

2004 Chevy Trail Blazer Ls 4/d Third Seat — Very nice to be able to depend on a vehicle when the weather is bad and the kids are playing in the back. It's always nice when you can put the key in, start her up and begin the long trip to the beach feeling the comfort of getting there safe.

Great Family Vehicle With 4x4. — The trailblazer is a great vehicle for a family. Plenty of space for the kids and for putting things in the back like groceries, sporting equipment, etc. Has tow package to pull a trailer. It is one of those vehicles that has many uses. The only problems is some repairs can be expensive but I guess they can on any vehicle. The thing I hate on the trailblazers is the secondary air injection system which is a feature that doesn't really do a whole lot and goes bad quite often. I don't what this to turn you off from this vehicle as it is probably one of the best all around vehicles to have as a family, but does have some minor problems.

Pros

Starts right up everytime.  Very smooth ride.  Very handy vehicle.

Cons

I'm glad it's only a 6 cylinder.  An eight cylinder would burn too much gas.

Very Glad I Made The Purchase. — I can't really say that I dislike anything about the car. It's more than I thought it was going to be and I don't regret anything at I that I bought this vehicle. I would definitely recommend it to anybody who asks me about it.

Like Driving On My Couch — The 6-banger provides ample power for a truck this size. The interior, while not cushy, is VERY comfortable. The 4wd system is excellent...she hasn't gotten stuck once in the snow, despite my best efforts. I've had her for almost five years now and still love her like the day I bought her.

Pros

Comfortable ride, 4x4 works amazing!

Cons

Not the best fuel mileage, heavy truck, road noise, little to no options for aftermarket customization

Glad I Bought! — Overall, the Trailblazer is a very solid truck to drive. It is a little noisy with the windows up. Fuel mileage is not the best, although I believe it is a lot better than some of the other options out there in the same class. Performance is pretty good from the 4.2L, and has no problems pulling out and passing people.

Fun To Drive — very comfortable to drive on long drives, brakes extremely well, has plenty of power,steers very well. I towed two cars back from out east on a trailer with no problem what so ever. Plenty of storage and holds five adults very comfortable. We have driven this truck to Florida and Virginia on vacation and it was a very pleasant drive. Very comfortable lumbar seats for long drives. Factory Bose stereo system holds 5 cd's, . Moonroof. This truck does not have any rust on it.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Smooth Ride — I like the trailblazer as a whole. Everything about it is great. The only downfall is that I can't put things, such as dirty, greasy, oily things in it due to the fact I don't want to mess up the carpet. Hunting in it is fine if you don't bag that trophy, or else you will be strapping it to the roof, which would suck.
