2009 Chevrolet TrailBlazerSUV may be one of the older designs on the market, but its combination of size, power, interior room and price make it a force with which to be reckoned. The five-passenger TrailBlazer comes with a potent yet fuel-friendly in-line six-cylinder engine that's perfectly suited for towing moderate loads. The TrailBlazer is also available as a high-performance version wearing the famous SS logo and packing a 390-horsepower, 6.0-liter V8 under its hood. Still, the TrailBlazer is beginning to show its age and faces tough competition from within its own family. For about the same price, the new eight-passenger
Chevrolet Traverse offers more interior room, better handling and safety features and superior fuel economy.
Love this SUV!

I own this car - My approximate mileage is 112,000
"After test driving 10 SUV's, the trailblazer was by far the most comfortable ride. This truck has never let me down and I have not had to put anything into it except for regular maintenance. I would highly recommend this vehicle!"
"My 2005 Trailblazer is the best vehicle I have ever owned!! I bought it for $18K at auction when it was 6 months old and had 8K miles on it. It was a previous rental in New York. I've had it for 5 years and it now has 59K miles. I've only had to fix minor things like headlight wiring harness and muffler, and replace the tires once. I need to have the brakes done soon though. The gas gauge has been broken for about a year now. I was told it would be about $500 to fix, so for now I just reset the trip odometer every time I fill up and know I need gas again when I reach about 275 miles. I'll have it fixed eventually. Four wheel drive has been awesome for the New England winters, and front and rear a/c great for the summers. The third row seat has been fabulous for driving my kids and all their friends everywhere. Everyone loves the shelf in the back that is great for putting groceries on without everything getting squished. We can put the seats down and haul big things purchased at Home Depot. The only disappointment was that it did not come with OnStar, I thought it did when I bought it but it didn't. Oh well, next time I will be sure. It is a bear to park sometimes but that is to be expected with how big this vehicle is. Also a gas hog, which was no fun when the gas prices were so high a few years ago. All in all, I love this truck and would recommend it to anyone with a family who is looking for a safe, comfortable, dependable vehicle."
