Pros: seat heatersLove it never had a problem with it.
I love my Trailblazer
Cons: that they discontinued the body styleI wish they still made the Trailblazer as it is a perfect fit for my needs. 4 wheel Drive so I never worry about driving in the snow and plenty of room to ride in comfort. The back seats are as nice as the front and riding in it is great, no mater where you sit.
Pros: 6.0 liters of refined power
Cons: fit and trim could be better
Advice: good compromise for a sport car lover that has to do the family thing.395 h.p., what more can you say? This 'truck' is great fun to drive. Highway mileage at about 16-17 mpg and city at 14. Good in the snow and can pass just about anything that you want to except a gas station. Intoxicating exhaust sound adds to the experience. 17,000 trouble free miles now and still enjoy it as much as the test drive.
Pros: Everything is laid out in easy reach.
Cons: Overall fit and finish, gas mileage
Advice: Ask for a gas cards for birthdays, holidays and 'just because' days.I've owned this car for 2 years now. I loved it at first, it has great utility features and a very smooth ride. It's absolutely loaded and I do enjoy the features but the quality issues started arising. Paint came off the radio buttons around 10k, chrome accent pieces came off by 20k, the front bumper is warping and its a very sloppy fit and finish. Plus, the rear door weather strip is loose and noticeably hangs in the rear wheel well. There are several squeaks and rattles in the interior. I have 37k on it right now and there is also a hollow clunk when stopping. I take very good care of it and maintain it well but I can't see this vehicle lasting me. The vehicle is a hog on gas and I average 16.5mpg. An SUV enthuaist would appreciate this vehicle but for everyday driving its a bit overkill. Just be prepared to know your gas attendant by name.
Pros: Power and stability and comfortable driver seat when it works.
Cons: Poor trim and a paint job that scratches with very little effort.
Advice: Enjoy the ride and hope you have a dealer that can maintain the little things.Following one year of ownership, the drive is almost as exciting, as any sports car. It should not be said that it is a luxury vehicle. We have been anoyed by the noise from the allwheeldrive system in the front portion of the drive train. The transmission is not very smooth. We have experienced alot of problems with the power seat on the drivers side. The plastic trim on the body portions of the car are attatched poorly and make for poor visual lines and loose fitting attatchments. The front bumper looking plastic is the weakest, loose, poorly fitted trim piece ever.
