"Have owned this trailblazer for 6 years now. Love the 4 wheel drive. Pulls trailer well. It's been a good vehicle, I bought it with 30k miles on it has 117k now. Have had a few issues. Idle pulley, water pump, transfer case seal, wiper module, high speed blower relay, idle air control valve. tie rods, starter. Has check engine light on now and has an idle problem sometimes dies when stopping. Lights flicker at times. Dealer cant figure out the problem with that. I'm tired of paying diagnostic fees and they cant fix it. (3 times now). Been driving it that way for two years now. Overall good vehicle for a newer model. To bad they can't build em like they did in the 60's and 70's to last a lifetime with minimal problems."

"Our 2005 Trailblazer is the best we've ever owned out of 3. Aside from a couple of fuse problems over the years, we have yet to have any sort of major mechanical problem. The car handles extremely well, on and off road. We have been in all sorts of weather conditions, and it has gotten us anywhere we wanted to go."

"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)"

"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."
