Pros: Bose Premium Sound System
Cons: Running Boards
Advice: Test drive one ASAP!I have owned a 4Runner, Explorer, Blazer and Tahoe SUV's and the TrailBlazer is by far the best of them all! Quiet, smooth, car-like ride; 270hp that absolutely flies. This vehicle has more features/options/gadgets on it than a Cadillac or Lexus. QUALITY-You've got to test drive one for yourself!
Pros: all wheel drive
Cons: the price was a bit steep
Advice: Drive it!The outback had great power! It's comfortable,elegant and handles easily.It is a great combination of luxury car and SUV.
Pros: handling characteristic
Cons: grab handle on front passenger side
Advice: I think its an excellent choiceAcceleration from an on ramp to highway speeds somewhat sluggish with the air conditioner turned on. The back window rattles on bumpy roads. This model does not have cross bars for the roof rack. Overall, I'm pleased with appearance,roomy interior space and driveability. Extraordinarily stable in most all driving conditions...side winds, 18 wheelers passing, roundabouts, quick turns. An improved and pleasant driving experience from the older model Explorers.
Advice: wait a year before you buy this onegood performance and ride for the first 600 miles then it was recalled I have been with out it for 10 days and GM can't tell me how long it will take to fix it
Pros: performance&easy to use controls
Cons: the recall
Advice: It's well worth the buyhandles well and has a very smooth ride
Pros: 4-wheel drive
Cons: Lack of heated seats and sunroof
Advice: Be sure you need this performance and check roomNice performing car. Not so good gas mileage or ride quality though.
Pros: Drive feel
Cons: Lack of sunroof & heated seat's options. Also back seats a little hard to get into.
Advice: Definitely worth a test drive.This car is wonderful. It has more overall power than most people need. While it's not superfast when you first step on the gas, it picks up steam quickly. The handling was great, good road feel. The seats hug your body and are supportive. The sound system is good, but a bit bassy for my tastes. Rear seats fold flat - a nice feature.
