I also have an 07 Trailblazer. Never had any problems until today. It has rained for three days-almost continuously and I noticed the foul smell first. I then checked the back of my truck and the upholstery and all the items that were placed in the cargo area are soaked! Needless to say, my extended warranty does not cover leaks...upset.

EPIC FAIL ON GM'S PART!!! I also have a 2007 chevy trailblazer and have developed a leak in the rear cargo area as well. We live in a very rainy place so we have had to put an electric dehumidifier(totally worth the money) in the car in order to get the carpets completed dry, that is the ONLY way to remove all of the water from the rugs and get rid of the smell/mold/mildew. So far we have found a leak coming from the luggage rack bolts but will be removing the headliner to investigate further/fix. In wet conditions using soapy water and air will help you tell where the leak is coming from. We have removed several side panels and once it was dry have been able to find a pretty clear trail to where the leak is from... GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!
