Nice Mid-Size SUV

Going from two vehicles (a GMC 1500, I used only when needed and a Pontiac Grand Prix used for my daily travels) down to one, I wanted a vehicle that could pull my 20' Bass Boat every other weekend and still give me decent fuel mileage with my every day use. My Trailblazer fit the bill. Although a larger vehicle probably would give a better ride when pulling my boat, I don't pull my boat every day and didn't want to give up the mileage of the smaller SUV. Since the Trailblazer came into production, the exterior has always caught my eye, but the interior is lacking slightly over other models. Since buying my Trailblazer, I haven't had any maintenance issues. And if its anything like the other GM trucks I've had in the past, I'll have it for a long time.

My 2004 Chevy Trailblazer is awesome! I got it a little over 2 years ago with 73000 on it... I fell in love with it when I test drove it so needless to say I bought it! I travel to Chicago from Rockford (about 300 miles round trip total) A LOT!!! It has never given me any issues really! Being that I am the only one in my family with an SUV we took it to New Jersey and on top of all the trips to Chicago it was the most enjoyable car we have ever taken! Handles great in snow and can Haul! My 6'2" dad didn't even have a problem riding in the backseat! Overall one of the best cars I have ever driven!

Second Blazer I have owned.

First blazer I owned I bought in 1991. It is still working with 200,000 plus. New 04 model has more than a decade of improvements on it which makes it even better than the first. Bought it used with 35,000 miles have put another 35,000 hard miles on it. About to do a 2,700 mile road trip with not many worries. Gas mileage for this SUV is awesome Over 300 miles to a 17 gallon tank. Cargo space has doubled it seems to me. The fold down seats are a breeze to work. Cup holders built into all four doors, and two in the front between driver and passenger. Seats are a lot more comfortable. Lots of leg space front and back. Will have it's real test on my mining property this summer.

I traded my ford escape in on my trailblazer because we needed more room. I drove it and immediately fell in love. I chose the trailblazer over a denali because of how well it handled and the price. I've just tripped 80,000 miles and haven't had any problems. It has plenty of room for my kids and their 6 foot 5 uncle in the back, does great on trips, plenty of cargo space, and all the options. We have enjoyed it so much we are considering an extended version. And for a SUV the gas mileage is great. I get no less than 23 mpg! We were really suprised at first and thought that was a fluke but it's been over a year and still going strong. I don't use the 4 WD often, but it does good when we do get snow and on the beach.

I have owned my trailblazer for about 2 months. I am very impressed with the 4 wheel drive and the stabilitrack feature. It gets great traction and control on the ice and snow. the sound system has improved over the 2001blazer i owned previosly.The on- star tecnology with hands free calling is state of the art. On the freeway this feels like it floats down the road. What a smooth ride! Absolutely the best vehicle I have ever owned!!!

I bought this car new in 2004. It is the V-8 version with 4wd. Can't say enough good about it. It has 83,000 miles on it now and have only changed the brakes twice. Did have a problem with the Dual temperature sensor in the back part of car but mostly a great car. We did recently have to change the ABS sensor as well. This is just wear and tear to me. It is still very quiet in the engine and it is 2011!

Not Bad

I bought an 04 in 2010 with 97k mi on it. It now has 164k miles on it and it is still an excellent car. I wish we would have pruchased the AWD version, ice and snow do not like this car at all and vice versa. As far as maintenance it was simple wear and tear. However, the motor in both of the windows went out and cost me $350 to replace ONE. So, needless to say the passenger window will have to wait. The headlights are constantly going out but that's no big deal the automotive shop always fixes it cheap. I haven't really had any major repairs needed to the car (knock on wood) this is definitely an excellent car. I've driven from Chicago to Springfield, MO (about 900mi round trip) several times with no issues.. I love this car.
