2008 Chevy Trailblazer — Drives well, Horrible on gas but its an SUV what do you expect. Accelerates well good brakes, handles well. Exterior paint job is great. Reasonable monthly payment, but about $60 -70 to fill up the tank. Fun to drive, I have done 2 road trips in it. Would recommend the SUV to someone interested in a midsized SUV. But this is the last year they are making them.

Sweet Trailblazer Ss — The performance from the 2008 Chevy Trailblazer SS is amazing, the response time, handling, climent control, and the ability to feel safe in a sports utility vehicle. The Trailblazer SS is a blast to drive. Next on my list of SUV's to drive will be BMW x6 or landrover sport.

Have Fun — Power was ok but not best. True V8 would do it justice, Icey road conditions was good just got to rember to use the breaks sooner an watch your speeds. Can't say much about the over all of the truck. It did its purpose an then some. 20MPG on highway at best with the V6 model. Great to shuttle people to Airport for there long Cancun trips lol

Loved It — By far my favorite car i have owned. However with gas prices, its financially responsible to downsize. Great color, smooth ride. Safety with 4wd and dashboard notifications! Blind spots minimal, never took it in for any mechanical issues because it never had any. Back Seat has air control which was way nice when the babies where in the car, very easy to reach while you are driving.

Awesome engine, off road capability

Cons

Handling, interior, gas mileage

Great Standard Suv — Overall a very good car. My mom leased this car and I drove it for several weeks at the end of the lease. Only two drawbacks were handling and interior quality. Handling really stunk with the exception of having very good steering feedback. Interior had too much hard, cheap, gray plastic. Excellent Bose audio system. The inline 6 engine in this car is AWESOME! Very fast

Pros

Great aggressive exterior styling, pretty good acceleration.

Cons

Junky interior plastics and design, radio and speakers suck.

Chevy Trailblazer — The TrailBlazer isn't very amazing, just your everyday, entry level mid-size SUV, I really wouldn't recommend it to anyone, its not the best, interior quality and the price is overly rediclious. Haven's had many issues involving repairs other than the junky bow tie emblems. Overall, its an okay car.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Nice Vehicle. Comfortable And Safe. — It's a nice, roomy solid vehicle. It's big enough for the family and groceries at the same time. Would recommend to anyone. Price is a little high, but worth it. Makes me feel safe and secure when I'm driving. Takes off at agreen light quick and is fun to drive and it's nice looking.

Gas mileage could be better

The Rockin Family Cruiser — Went from an Uplander to the Trailblazer. It was a night and day difference. It is not as quick as the SS but not a bad family wagon. It has been driven to Disney World and Texas from Chicago and it is an awesome vehicle. Fuel mileage could be better but it makes up for it in overall satisfaction.
