"This car has been such a lemon that I am considering no more Chevys! But, knock on wood, it is still running like a champ. All the shocks went bad, the heated seats have been faulty twice, 3 years in a row one of the coils went bad, The anti-lock braking system is completely gone (which does not effect my actual brakes at all and would cost almost the value of the car to fix), The AC went out once, the seat memory system (for 2 different drivers) has lost it's memory, The makeup mirror on the visor broke & doesn't light (but the bulb still works when pushed)"

I bought this SUV new and would do it again.

"This truck did all I asked it too, I drove it hard some times, had a few reasonable repairs over the years. Drove it across country with five passengers and all our soccer gear."

"Like the 2005 so much we purchased a 2009 as well. Can't understand why Chevrolet quit making this vehicle. The 6 cylinder engine provides plenty of power without the excessive fuel usage."

"I purchased my 2002 LS in 2003 with @ 30k miles; the previous owner had it 2 years before me. I maintained regular service on it and took care of it and in turn, this Trailblazer gave me excellent service for 10 years and good service this year (in 2014). The leather and carpet still look brand new. It is just now giving me some issues that I've had to fix i.e. fuel pressure regulator, throttle body, catalytic converter. Now, it is time to get something else and am underwhelmed in finding something comparable. I have a pretty base model, but I do have leather seats. Not only am I NOT finding mid-sized SUV's, but leather seats is so hard to come by (seems to be reserved for limited editions in each brand). There are small SUV's and crossovers...both sit lower than my Trailblazer. I have to go large size just to stay sitting at the same height! I do get the advantages of the smaller builds, but there should be height requirements to be considered an SUV. I didn't realize just how good I've had it until now. She will be hard to replace."
