"I bought this brand new in 2008. I love this vehicle. It drives smooth and comfortably. It gets me where I need to go in the snow. It does a great job at pulling a trailer behind it, just as good as a truck. Gas mileage is about 22 on hwy and 15 in town. Not the best but I knew that when I bought it. I wish they stil made these because my next vehicle would be this again if I could."

A very impressive vehicle!

"I traded a 2001 Ford F150 Lariat 4WD with the Triton V8 in on this over 3 years ago. I am very impressed with the smooth power the 4.2L straight six has as well as the torque. I am over 6 feet tall and it is very easy to get in and out of which is a big plus. It has a very comfortable ride and handles well except in high cross winds it gets a little hard to handle. It tows well with the factory installed receiver and wiring harness. It is extremely reliable as I have only had to replace the battery, alternator, thermostat a fan relay since I've had it. It consistently averages 18mpg with the best being 23mpg on a trip from Texas to California and back."

"The 2007 Chevy Trailblazer is great! I love mine. 119,000 miles and still going strong. Paint still shines like brand new. Great ride quality, and great build quality. This is a very solid and car. my wife was hit by a pickup truck on the passenger side pretty hard, my wife was perfectly fine and damage wasn't too bad, other drivers insurance paid. Now its all fixed up, new front and rear passenger side doors, and its back on the road where it belongs. The 4.2L inline 6 is a great engine, runs smooth, has plenty of power, and doesn't seem lacking at all after 8 years and 119,000 miles. I change my oil every 3000 miles and follow recommended maintenance at proper intervals, and have no problems. Transmission is smooth. Gas mileage is pretty good. Overall great SUV. I would absolutely recommend."

"I bought it with the intention of driving it across country as a snow bird, but only made three trips before I moved to the warmer destination. It performed well and is very comfortable for both driver and passenger. One design flaw is the cover to a small storage spot on the rear deck. If you unlatch it and pull straight up you will snap off the cover tabs, but is the least of my worries. I did get 25 MPG on flat highways, as posted on the price sticker."

"Great family vehicle with lots of accessories that you can order online such as fitted mattress for the back and tent that attaches to the back of the vehicle which makes camping anywhere possible. The I6 motor is impressive with plenty of power. I put new shocks and coil springs on mine when I bought it because it definitely needed them(being 12 years old),and it has been an awesome vehicle ever since! Mine has cloth interior which is soft and comfortable."
