Getting firsthand information from an actual car owner is one sure way to get an idea of car performance once it leaves the lot. Autobytel features real consumer reviews that give the unbiased experience of a car.
Unfortunately they don't sell them in the US any more, otherwise I'd get a new one. The mileage isn't awesome but it's the best car I've ever owned. I specially like that the turn radius is better than most sedans. With the large cabin the a/c is sometimes challenged but the fan motor can keep up.
Pros: 4 wheel drive
Cons: no tint on windowsGood vehicel for the price
Not good at all
Pros: The Speed
Cons: The quiet StereoIt has a smooth ride, it will go if you give it gas, and it is practical. The gas mileage could be a bit better, but overall this car is solid. It is also surprisingly quiet and it has given me no engine trouble.
Pros: 4 wheel drive that I can set
Cons: the interior finishes were very basicMy Trailblazer has been a great vehicle for 6 years - I couldn't have asked for a better vehicle.
Cons: No under hood light.
Advice: BUY!The Trailblazer is far superior to the Honda Pilot, so I bought one. Did I choose the right color though? Silver? A fine SUV with no under hood light. Trailblazers are also better than 4-Runners and Explorers.
Cons: rear window noise when rolled down
Advice: I will buy another.I have owed my Trailblazer for 11 months. Not one problem. It is the best vehicle I have owned. I have put 31000 miles on it driving in Houston traffic and get 18.6 miles per gallon. I drove it to New York last fall and got 24 mpg. Straight six seems like an electric motor it is so quiet and powerful. I real pleasure to drive.
