Pros: Cab layout seemed to be okay.
Cons: the time spent in the dealer for warrantee repairs.
Advice: If dependability is essential, don't buy this pick-up.I have never had a vehicle towed during the first 3 years of use, that is until I got my S-10. I have never spent more time at the repair shop for warrantee repairs during the first 3 years of use, until I got my S-10. The only good thing is I leased it. I'll be getting rid of it soon, and I will not be considering another Chevy or other GM product. The pickup was comfortable enough, a little underpowered, but the flip side is it got reasonably good mileage. If you are looking for dependable transportation, this is not the truck for you.
Advice: Do ItI first leased a 2001 Toyota Corolla Sport 1 Month later the trans went out .Next car was a 2001 nissan sentra gxe had 3 recalls. i now own a 2002 Cavalier ls sport loaded and i purchased it.I am keeping it What does that tell you!!!!!!!!!!!
Cons: narrow wheelbase
Advice: get the 4 wheel driveGreat suv. No real problems. Runs great. If I had to do over I would have bought the 4 wheel drive.
Pros: Performance and Appearance
Cons: This car has a tendency to throw you around over average to above average bumps.
Advice: You should get leather and either a Z28 or the SS and not the V6.I bought a 2002 Camaro SS in January. This car is sweet. It has an automatic transmission,t-tops,leather,and well every other optional feature. This baby can fly to 60mph in only 5.5 seconds. More than that i love the roar of the engine. You cannot beat the sound of an American V8. I am thinking about putting a turbo system in there a few years down the road. It will be very costly though. I was originally goin to buy a stick shift Z28 but I saw this car for the zero percent fincancing and bought it right off the lot. Im getting more car for my money. I would have got a stick shift but well they are very hard to find as they are not being made anymore and everyone wants them.
Pros: inside space
Cons: there's nothing not to like
Advice: don't go into analysis paralysis, just buy the thing...one doesn't need side air curtains and a bunch of feel good safety equipment when one drives 3 tons worth of truck....
Pros: 4x4 on the fly!
Cons: Lack of remote hatch release
Advice: Strongly consider LS loaded over the LT. Same engine and ride but lower price tag.After owning a 99 blazer, I feel as if I took a giant leap up in the Trailblazer. I considered the LTZ, but after reviewing the options and comps., I found the loaded LS is the best buy for the money. Suspension and engine are standard on all models so the upgrades are really just personal preference options. I found that what you get in the LT and LTZ as options are over-priced in comparison to other SUV's. (Personal opinion) It has a great feel and ride and plenty of room inside. I have the loaded LS and added running boards. I am completely satisfied. The ride is incomparable to other SUV’s I have driven. It even rides better then some cars I’ve been in. A great SUV!!
Pros: Perfect suspension, swift and precise steering, powerful and gas-merciful engine.
Cons: The darn 'CHANGE ENGINE OIL' warning noone seems able to fix ...
Advice: For the everyday, comfortable and relaxed life, this is the way to go. Fits a modest budget. :)We were car shopping for mom's b/day, and came across this Impala. Fell in love with it from moment 1. Runs and drives silky like a dream, corners like no other. Smooth gear shifting, sufficient stop-and-go horsepower. The only problem we had with it is a computer warning light 'CHANGE ENGINE OIL' that keeps coming on. We had the on-board computer reset once at 11,000 miles, and the problem was fixed. Then it recently started warning again, at 21,000 miles, even though the oil was just changed. The techs at dealership reset it again, but a day later the warning was back on. So far this is the only problem, and a minor and neglijible one. The rest of the car - a job well done by GM. We own 3 other Fords, and, besides being gasers for 4 and 6 cylinder cars, they truly and sadly live by their name: F(ix) O(r) R(epair) D(aily).
