Pros: Power of the car for mountain driving.
Cons: To new to know
Advice: Drive it first then compare other similar SUV's to it's performanceHandles very will, very responsive on drive to Lake Tahoe. Comfort was great, did not feel tired when I got out of the car
Cons: no room
Advice: Look before you leap!After test-driving this SUV I came back to the problems that I had when I owned a Blazer. If the back seat is folded down and I sit in the drivers seat, I am unable to move the driver’s seat back so I can sit with proper line of site of the road. I wish they would give six more inches between the rear seat folded down and the front. Also I noticed again that their is some type of equipment 'box' located above the passengers feet, should this SUV for the great outdoors not allow people with boats on to sit in the front without hitting the 'box'. I also found that the rear latch handle seems to be weak. We have decided to move on to a different SUV. Sorry, I thought the new design would catch these problem areas.
Pros: The look of the vehicle
Cons: So far nothing
Advice: If you haven't driven a TrailBlazer I highly recomend it for SUV loversThe Chevy TrailBlazer is out of this WORLD. I've been driving vans,trucks and suv's all my life and never have I driven a vehicle like the TrailBlazer. This vehicle is in league of it's own. OK where can I start first. The performance of the engine is superb. The engine is so quiet when the car is running, sometimes I have to check to make sure it's running. Next the smooth ride, it provides as well as great steering and handling features. Also the comfort and leg room of the TrailBlazer. I could go on and on about this vehicle. Let's just say you have to test drive it to understand what I'm trying to say.
Pros: Driver memory features via DIC (Driver Information Center)
Cons: Inability to remotely open rear gate
Advice: Get options from factory; dealers can't get/find a lot of options. Also, longer wheelbase version coming!!!Very quiet at any speed. Excellent power at any engine speed. Well placed controls and lighting. Rear AC and stereo controls. Transfer case neutral for towing.
Pros: RIDE AND HANDLING
Advice: CHECK IT OUTREAL NICE VEHICLE
Pros: 6 disc in dash CD changer
Cons: Small gas tank at 18 gal.
Advice: Buy one!This car is just AMAZING! I have owned many SUV's in the past and this is a truck that is a pleasure to drive. VERY comfortable to drive and the proformance is top notch. I haven't been this excited about a car since my first one years ago! The options are plenty, sound from the stereo is better then expected. Towing with the truck is a pleasure. This truck is a head turner! I have received several comments about it. 'NICE truck!'.
Pros: Radio controls in rear passanger seats
Cons: So many controls to figure out
Advice: Go ahead and TEST drive the others!I shopped for a month before I discovered the Trail Blazer. I thought I really wanted a 4 runner until I test drove one, and the inside was tight. The Trailblazer drives smooth. I have gotten complements from everyone on the look. I have also gotten great gas mileage.
