Small Suv For A Family Of 4 Or Less. — very easy driver no issues with engine or transmission yet but just broke 100,000 miles. small back seat space so if you have more than 2 children in car seats almost impossible to fit the third one, but spacious enough for a small family with one kid no doubt.

My Chevy Trailblazer — I love everything about my Chevy Trailblazer. It has great spaciousness, a wonderful ride, awesome acceleration, fantastic braking, and superb handling. With gas prices on the rise, it has been taking quite a chunk out of my pocketbook, but I'm not separating from my Chevy. I have taken several trips out of town in my Trailblazer, and I thoroughly enjoy having enough room for all the luggage for three people, with enough room for everyone to ride comfortably. After having owned several small (foreign) cars, it's nice to be driving a bigger American Chevy.

Get One — IT KICKS ASS! Very nice in the winter! Winter tires on it help a ton! Four wheel drive is nice! Roomy! Great acceleration, braking, and handling! Fun to drive with friends or with a trailer! Looks nice! I highly recommend a trailblazer.

Not too good on gas.

Good Reliable Suv — I liked my trailblazer a lot. It always gets me to where I'm going. I have had up mountains, at the beach and cross country and it always performs. Now if they could make it economical at the same time but maybe that's asking too much. Good comfortable ride and handles well in all situations.

My First Chevrolete — My review is overall this has been a good vehicle. I have no complaints mechanically only replaced brakes, tires, battery and some type of pulley belt twice cost less than $100.00 to replace. Has been a very dependable vehicle kind of sad to let it go but need something bigger to accomidate family size.

Review — Overall, I love this car. I am really happy with my purchase. The gas mileage isn't that great but it is really comfortable. This is my daily driver and I'm going to make this car last forever. 116,000 miles and still going strong. - Scott

Pros

Love the way my truck looks, handles, and seats my family and all the gear that goes with them!

Cons

Being an SUV the gas mileage is higher, but it is what you would expect of a rig this size. The seals on the doors all need redone and I've read that this is not uncommon of this model.

Owning A Trailbeast — Overall I really love this truck. It handles well, it's been great for our family, and extremely comfortable for long drives. I'd recommend it to friends, and am glad I purchased it. Here's hoping the next 10 + years ownership go as smoothly as the first few have!
