"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."

"This is the second certified used Trailblazer XLS I've owned and if they still made them I would buy another. Works good for hauling the whole family and our lightweight travel trailer on vacations as well as hauling larger items home from the store with the seats laid down. Besides normal maintenance issues I've never had any major mechanical issues with either of the trailblazer's I've owned."
