Pros

Good power, comfortable and reliable, seating for 7 includes all adults, even in the back, though not for someone over 6 ft in third row for longer trips.  Mileage ok for larger vehicle on trips.  Drives fine in the snow, great for trips to the mountains.

Cons

City driving mileage could be better but still it is a larger vehicle.  Varies for all city use from 14 to 15 mpg.

Good Vehicle If You Need Seating For Up To 7 And 4 Wheel Drive. — Good car for groups of up to seven people. Great for going up to the mountains and on trips. Handling is typical for a larger vehicle, not a sporty ride but not bad either. Fuel economy varies from 14 to 21 for the worst (mostly city) to the best (all highway) I've seen. Typically I get 16 to 17 mpg with mostly around town driving.

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

Reborn Chevy Fan..... — This vehicle has renewed my faith in GMs. Just bought this (in Sandstone exterior) & already love it. It has all the bells & whistles (except sunroof & running boards). Can't wait to take the family in it on 1st big vacation.

The Family Vehicle — This thing is great. Seats 7, has towing ability, horsepower, pleanty of interior room, decent gas mileage for an SUV, looks good, and most importatnly isn't a minivan or station wagon! Bought this when it was realized that a larger vehicle was needed for the family. Love having it, driving it, and won't get rid of it until it's DEAD

Cons

Gas mileage

Great Truck For All Around Family Use And Towing — I have the 5.3 in my trailblazer and it goes good has great take off but loses at high end... gas mileage is about16.5-17.3. I bought it with 30,000 and has just about 70,000 miles now and has had no major problems. The truck is fun to drive especially with having 300 horse but the gas milage does hurt a bit on long trips.

A Good Truck — I purchased this vehicle used in 2010 and it has had its share of mechanical issues. Thankfully I purchased an extended warranty. She's very reliable and fortunately all of her issues were able to be handled easily through the local GM dealerships. I still would recommend this vehicle if you have the opportunity.
