Pros

It' very nice having an SUV with near 400 hp.

Cons

GM's indifference to replacing burned out lamps in the steering wheel.

Bring Back The Suv With The Corvette Motor... — The Corvette motor in the SUV is a great idea. The power from acceleration is exciting, and the feel is even better because you typically only get this in a sports car that's much lower to the ground. It's a shame 2009 was the last year for Chevy's highpowered SUV.

Videos From Cargurus Makes It Easy To Work On My Truck — the fact that i had to replace the front wheel bearings with 57,000 miles on it did not impress me. i thought i should of gotten at least 100,000 miles out em. other then that i think it's been a great vehicle.

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.

Very Reliable — This truck has been very reliable. I just put a new battery in it about 2 months ago. And have the oil changed every 3 months. Other than that I haven't had to do anything to it. I take it camping when I go because of all the cargo space and with the seats flipped down it gives you a lot of extra space.

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.

Idk What This Is So Im Just Going To Type Something Random. — what i love most about my car is how fast it is and how sexy it looks.. 390 hp that will whip the passengers neck back.. soooo niiiiceeeee mmmmmmm. I use to have a saab 93 which was also quick.. but nothing compared to the ss. also the look of the ss is very sexy i have black headlight and tail light covers so its completely black and i covered the chevy symbol on the front so the whole front grill is black

Pros

4x4, pretty good on gas

Cons

not a ton of space.

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

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!

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.
