Fast grocery getter

Cons

gas mileage

Love My Tbss — I love my TBSS, the ride, the handling, the appearance... I have been happy with all of it. The gas mileage is not that great but not bad for V8 SUV that is as fast as it is. Always fun to pull up beside a car that does not know what it is and blow by it. I have gone thru a lot of cars and this one I have kept the longest and have been the happiest with.

I Love My Truck. I Wished It Was A Little Wider On The Interior. — Car has a lot of acceleration speed. There is an addition performance chip. If a new exhaust and air intake system is placed on the vehicle - it has great speed. The trailblazer is good on gas - I specifically use it for driving the hilly areas of Pennsylvania. I would recommend this vehicle to anyone that wants style for an economic price.

A Great Family Car. — I like having an SUV because it does well in weather. I would like my next car to be electric or hybrid though. If your into music I would definitely instal a auxiliary cord too because right now it only has a CD player.

Pros

A rarity in the market of performance sport SUVs. With some mechanical aptitude, this vehicle is very fun to own and drive daily. You can smoke just about everyone off the line! A large online community of owners will help anyone maintain these vehicles with very little out of pocket expense.

Cons

Nickel and dime maintenance repairs required; modification from stock components is a necessity. Careful attention to engine, transmission, gear oils needed. Best case gas mileage is 17 on the highway.

A Really Unique Head-turner — The 2006 Superior Blue model is a 1-year production. You will not find many of these on the road, so people notice the uniqueness of the ride. Comes stock with 20" rims, air ride suspension, and AWD option makes this vehicle feel like you are driving a fighter jet and riding on rails around the corners!

It's big.

Cons

Gas expense, engine light won't turn off, acceleration.

My Stupid Trailblazer. — Eh, not a fan of it. It's a ridiculously huge vehicle. The sound system is nice though. It takes forever to accelerate, but the brakes are good. :P It's an SUV so obviously its a gas guzzler, with around 15mpg.

Sounds good, looks good, can have 5 people in it

Cons

if you dont need something to tow

Love The Truck — Sounds good, hauls very well, but needs the LS2 from the TBSS ;) Pulls trailer very easily and its got just about 300HP. Need an exhaust, short ram intake and a throttle body spacer to make it have a little more punch.

Pros

4x4, pretty good on gas

Cons

not a ton of space.

45

Trailblazer — Handles great in the snow and muck. Most times you don't even need the 4x4. When you do it gets you unstuck in a hurry. Pretty good on gas but we should've ponied up a little more cash and gotten a Suburban. With a kid, a dog, all the crap it makes road trips really tight! Thank goodness for roof top carries

Sick. — best purchase ever. i got a steal on this truck. it only had 18K on it when i bought it used. Great buy would recommend to anyone who needs room and also the power that comes with the corvette motor. it has 400 hp and 400 lbs. of torque. this is one of the best suvs out on the market right now.

The Ride For The Entire Family — I love my my trailblazer it is been very reliable and helpful through my college years I was able to use the vehicle to carry around friends, and my furniture for moving into my apartment. I could comfortably get up and down the road with no problems. We got the car when I was in college so I would have something safe to get to school. The gas mileage is not great, but the car has been very dependable.
