"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."
"This car has been absolutely wonderful. the Bridgestone tires consistently last 75k miles, new brake rotors are needed every 80-100k (replaced pads at 120k). Consistently gets 21MPG highway and is such a comfortable SUV to drive when compared to our 4Runner. The turning radius is also one of the tightest radii out there, car or SUV, great for parking. At 175k the maintenence that has been done outside of the normal fluid and tire changes is:
- Drivers side tie rod (90k - $80)
- Brake rotors (90k - $230)
- Spark plugs (100k - $45)
- Brake pads (120k - $120)
- Ambient temperature sensor (150k - $6)
- Water pump (166k - $70)
Overall it has been an extremely reliable car."
"It has run beautifully for many years, but now it is approaching 150,000 and is starting to show its age. Until last year, I've haven't done anything to it except regular maintenance. Now I'm looking for a replacement and there nothing that compares; either others get great mileage and are too small, or are too big and get lousy mileage. So I'm going to keep it another year. It still drives and runs great!"
