About Chevrolet TrailBlazer

The midsize 2009 Chevrolet TrailBlazer SUV may be one of the older designs on the market, but its combination of size, power, interior room and price make it a force with which to be reckoned. The five-passenger TrailBlazer comes with a potent yet fuel-friendly in-line six-cylinder engine that's perfectly suited for towing moderate loads. The TrailBlazer is also available as a high-performance version wearing the famous SS logo and packing a 390-horsepower, 6.0-liter V8 under its hood. Still, the TrailBlazer is beginning to show its age and faces tough competition from within its own family. For about the same price, the new eight-passenger Chevrolet Traverse offers more interior room, better handling and safety features and superior fuel economy.

"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!"

"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!"
