Pros

nice small suv for families that want a suv but don't need a big one. great mileage.

Cons

back seat space.

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.

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!

Pros

Roomy, quiet, reliable.

Cons

The breaks SUCK.  They wear so fast. Had to go to ceramics.

Good As Gold — Roomy, good cargo space (can fit 6 bales of hay in there :) ), nice on road trips, low maintenance, mileage isn't bad if you use a gas additive. Reliable. Minimal repairs and over 100k miles. Interior keeps up nicely and love the door panels look fancy. Pretty basic amenities, stock radio sucks,speakers fade in and out, front bumper plastic facia warps and looks bowed.

Good power, comfortable, good smooth ride.  It hauled kayaks, hang glider, on the top rack and pulled a tent trailer without any problems.

Cons

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.

Good Mid-size Family Suv — Runs great considering the mileage it has, but wish that it had a little more pick-up. Overall it's a good truck and hasn't broken down or given any problems. Has a very smooth ride and plenty of room for your stuff.

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

Great Overall Truck.runs Like A Chevy Should. Im A Chevy Guy And This Truck Hasnt Let Me Down. — performance- braking is amazing with all wheel brakes. handling is awesome. you can change between 4wd and all wheel drive if you want. build quality- never needed any engine work. needs a touch up on body. no squeaks or rattles. appearance- interior is great in appearance and exterior like i said needs a little touch up. cost of ownership- it gets the typical suv gas mileage that u'd expect. 16 city and 19 highway. i give it an oil change everytime at 3000 miles. i keep the car clean and washed. fun factor- 4wd in the winter time and for off roading has to be the funnest part. the suv has to be the funnest and nicest cars i've driven yet.

Dont Buy One — would never buy another one. it handles well. if you need to do anything under the hood - forget it, under the hood is covered in plastic, but underneath it is an intertwined mess. the mileage is alright as long as its distance trips
