Trailblazers Are Great Small Suvs — I've owned this vehicle for over five years now and it still runs and drives great, is comfortable and spacious! The style is pleasing to the eyes and drives well on just about any condition. I love the Trailblazer and would recommend it to anyone looking for a first vehicle or a small SUV.

A Nice Looking Ride — This thing has gobs of power. It is all wheel drive which makes it great in winter driving conditions. I have no problems getting around, and getting there as fast as I want to. The air ride makes the ride comfortable to ride in as well.

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.

An Excellent Suv For An Awesome Price — Its a beautiful suv, right size ver comfortable to drive and sit ride in. Never had an issue with any mechanical. Just normal fluid changes, tire rotations, and wiper blade changes. Never heard any strange noises. Drove car off road, highway/freeway and city, no issues. Not saying that because i would like to sell my car but honeslty because its an amazing car. I wouldnt think about selling it if it wasnt for the price of gas and economy, and financial changes in my house hold and needing downsize.

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.

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.

Awesome engine, off road capability

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.

25

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.)
