Great, fun-to-drive small SUV!

Bought a Trailblazer LS new in May 2021 (had it for 14 months) and love it. Surprisingly fun to drive for such a small engine - both in town and on the highway. Great tech for the price range. Haven't had a single problem with it - only been in the shop for oil changes.


Not a Happy Car owner right now

Mine has 35,000 miles and the fuel purge pump went out! Not covered under warranty or extended warranty 😡 cost me 525.00 to fix. Thought that getting a new car would keep me from having such issues for awhile


Great car for the price of gas.

This car is awesome on gas. has plenty of get up and go. Looks awesome outside and inside. Im 6'3 and there is plenty head and foot room. It is easy to get into. love the scarlet red paint. I have the LT with the 1.3 fwd.
