Trailblazer Ltz — The trim was LTZ I'm pretty sure that's the fully loaded model, not extended just regular Trailblazer. It was a solid car, you could feel it when you drove it. Never needed repairs, nothing ever went wrong. Loved driving it, but it was really bad on gas and my dad had put an exhaust that woke the dead on it hahaha. This was my first american car and I really liked it, I'm a fan of chevy. great car to have if you have the money for the gas. Very safe, awesome options on the LTZ, and tons of space. gotta love it.

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.

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.

This is a great truck that was purchased new from the dealership. Most of the mileage is HWY travel between Dallas and Little Rock.

Cons

Not big enough for a very large family.

Outstanding Suv. — I like the power, space, color and that its a Chevy. This vehicle handles well both on and off the road. It has been on many hunting trips and served as my primary means of transportation. You will love this SUV.

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.
