I have a Corvette convertible that I love but for fun and the dogs we take the butt kicking SS. One of the dumbest things GM did was kill the TBSS. Drive the speed limit and you can get high 17 mpg, have fun and you're at 15. Heavy trailer or boat/camper just mash the gas and go, pass any other puller on the road. Have 89,000 on mine and it would only go away for a lower milage TBSS. Buy the gas and enjoy or drive your 200 horse box, I'll see you in my mirrow-briefly.

i have owned this vehidle for about 2 months and have been nothing but impressed with it ! The 4x4 stabilitrack feature gives great handling in the snow and ice.the bose sound system is top quality as well. I am very impressed with the way it handles on the freeway at 70mph. It seems like it just floats down the highway.The on-star tecnology is very convienent. Abosolitely the best vehicle I have ever owned!!!

I bought a new Trailblazer in 2004 and ran up 139,000 miles. Loved it and always felt comfortable in it and when I had clients in it looking at homes. While I didn't have any issues with it...I thought it was time to get a new car and confidently sold it to a relative. I test drove the new Acadia and Traverse, but these don't ride the same way or sit the same as the Trailblazer does. I like to see where I'm going:) So I bought a used 2008 TB with low miles, leather and all the bling this time. I'm looking forward to putting another 100,000++ miles on this one! Hopefully Chevrolet will bring the Trailblazer back when I'm ready to change vehicles again.

I needed a truck power to tow but didn't want the big monsters. this was a great compermise. on cross country trips comfortable for the wife and get between 22.5 and 24 mpg. around town mpg stinks because I like to use the power to often. If I behave myself I get 16-18 arround town. in winter with cold weather auto4 and defrost on I have gooten below 13mpg. don't like that i have to pull the front seats forward to put the rear seat down. worked great to camp in alone. (no tent set up) auto4 has work superbly in the snow slush and ice of N. illinois. the rear resenator blow out it's stuffing. no big deal no ill effects (except rattle in exceleration). She has over 102000 miles on the clock no problems in sight. I plan on keeping her for a long time unless someone wants to trade even up for a new one

I've gone from the 2 door Blazer in 1989 to the 4 door model in 1998 to the 2008 Trailblazer. It is a significant improvement over previous models and appears to be wider and heavier with more solid handling and traction. I'm sorry Chevrolet chose to end it's mid-size SUV line in 2009.

I have owned my trailblazer for about 1 yr. now and have been nothing but impressed with it. The 4x4 stabilitrack feature gives great handling in the snow and ice. The sound system is great. The on-star technology with hands free calling is state of the art.It seems to glide down the freeway at 70 mph.Thanks to the cars .com website for providing the information I needed to find this vehicle.

I love my trailblazer. It is comfortable, fun to drive and has tons of power. The only thing I didn't like in the Trailblazer was the stock radio. I upgraded mine. The drivetrain on mine is the 5.3L and 2WD. It does fine in snow with the Stabilitrak feature. It rides nice and smooth down the road. VERY pleased with my Trailblazer. It's sad GM got rid of this line of vehicles. I hope to keep this for a long time since GM doesn't make a truck-based mid-sized SUV anymore.
