2002 Chevrolet TrailBlazer - LTZ 4x4
Pros: Heated leather seats
Cons: Gas mileage
Advice: None - it's a fabulous vehicleThe Trailblazer is absolutely AMAZING! Not only is it a sharp looking SUV, but it's powerful yet comfortable. It handles like a car...smooth, quiet, and refined. It also has a great turning radius. The interior is spacious with lots of leg room. With a 270-hp engine, getting around the mountains and towing a boat has been a breeze. Highly recommend this vehicle!!

2002 Chevrolet Avalanche 1500 - 4x4
Pros: Conversion from a SUV to a truck in a flash!
Cons: Parking the vehicle.
Advice: Drive it and you will love it!It drives like a luxury car. The steering has a little play in it, but manageable. The get up and go of the vehicle is not that great. Pf course, I like speed! When driving the Avalanche, you do get alot of head turns! What is that??? This is the look you get on the road! Great SUV! I will not call it a truck!
2002 Chevrolet Monte Carlo - SS
Pros: There are three things I like most about the 2002 Monte Carlo SS...it's appearance, handling, and the On-Star Security.
Cons: Two things I like least include the 'pull knob' for the headlights (which seems outdated) and turning on the fog lights each time you restart the engine is cumbersome.
Advice: With the access consumers have to internet information, I would simply suggest to fully research your vehicle(s) of choice before visiting a dealership. Being an informed consumer will help you, AND the dealership get you into the auto of your choice!!The Monte Carlo has a smooth ride and decent acceleration. Being a former Pontiac Grand Prix owner, I was skeptical about moving on to another vehicle. I wasn't sure I would be happy owning anything but another Grand Prix. I was pleasantly surprised with the handling and ride of the Monte Carlo. Driving on the highway is great...the Monte Carlo offers a smooth ride and is just fun to drive. The sleek look, exterior and interior is classic, yet sporty! The built in On-Star security system also offers peace of mind. On-Star assistance, combined with the On-Star calling features were a great selling point.
