Advice: buy it, buy it, buy itThis is not about a test drive--this is a BIG thank-you for high quality construction of my trailblazer--I was in a wreck May 14, 2005--if I had been in any other vehicle I could not have walked away with just broken ribs--THANK-YOU
Pros: Dashboard layout

Advice: I would spend a little more money and get the TrailblazerI owned my 2004 Blazer for 1 year. After I bought it, I left the dealer lot and discovered when they assembled it at the factory they hadn't put the strap to the fuel tank on. It hung down. Bad start there. I thought the ride is a little rough. It could be wider for better handling. It can use more power. It was good in snow. The speed sensor went bad on the highway when it was 1 year old and left me stranded. The rear tire developed a bubble on it. All covered under warranty but left me wondering what would happen next.
