I purchased a 2006 Chevrolet Trailblazer EXT 2 months ago. Overall I have been pleased with the vehicle although I had to take it back to the dealership for a few repairs. I purchased the vehicle with 47,000 miles which is fairly low. I also purchased an extended warrantly for 3 yrs/36k miles. Even the vehicle is certified and came with a 1 year warranty I felt more secure with an extended warranty. I took the Trailblazer back to the dealership because I could hear some noise underneath the vehicle while driving it. Also, the wheel alignment was off and the right rear door was dificult to close. The dealership replaced the left front wheel bearing which took care of the noise. They also did a wheel alignment and replaced the check link on the door. I was disappointed that these repairs had to be done because the vehicle was certified and should have been fixed before I purchased the vehicle. However everything was done free of charge so no money out of my pocket, just time at the dealership.
The vehicle itself is fully loaded with almost every option offered. It has heated, power, leather, memory seats, DVD player, rear climate control, 6-disc CD player with Bose speakers, and steering wheel controls. It also is an EXT with a 3rd row seat that folds down. I like to option of being able to seat up to 8 people, or fold the seat down for more storage room. The DVD player is convienent when your on long trips with kids.
The engine is a 6 cyl that has decent horsepower and not too bad mileage for a vehicle that size. I just drove from Michigan to Maryland and averaged 20 mpg. The Trailblazer has a nice smooth ride and handles nice.
