As a female car owner, I generally dread visits to the car repair shop - as a total layperson, I usually do not enjoy being convinced that my car needs (in my view) unnecessary repairs/upgrades. Branson assessed the situation, proposed solution and in less than 90 minutes I left the dealership with a fixed car and good feeling. I really enjoyed the little touch of a cookie left on the passenger seat with a note from the Service Department - these extra little touches will help me coming back whenever repairs/car consultations are needed.

good vehicle overall it help me throw college and it is fun to drive and easy to handle. Ill recommend this vehicle to friends and family because if anything goes wrong with them it will be easy to repear
Purchasing a new car is stressful to me; however, VanDevere made the experience pleasant and took some of the stress away. I found Rita Furino, Bob Berger and Joe Caspary very helpful, honest and friendly. The facility was welcoming and it had a wonderful area to discuss the car, wait for needed paperwork and make the necessary business arrangements that I needed. I will definitely be a return customer!
Very reliable car

This is the perfect car for me. I have taken this car everywhere! From highways to rough dirt roads on hunts. This car has it all. It’s got great power for how small it is. You’d be pleasantly surprised at how smooth of a ride it is too.
At Budget Car Mart I was greeted and showed all my options. They were knowledgeable about all there options. I was showed the perfect vehicle for me and they got me to a fair price. Thank you for all your help!!

I needed a larger vehicle, I purchased this about 3 years ago. Great vehicle, no major problems so far. A little noisy compared to newer vehicles.
My salesperson, james, was very nice and knowledgeable

2008 Chevrolet Trailblazer LT

I'm very happy with this suv, I had to change the tires, because the dealership gave me used old tires, had to change the radio, to add a backup camera. Now its even better, adding the crash bars on the front and back for security.
When I first walked in I was greeted at the door by the associates. Sam was very fast, professional, and proficient. I would reccomend him to anyone

The car meets my needs. Carries full load of fodder for soup kitchen at church with back seat folded. Exhaust manifold and catalitic converter melted at 83,000 miles. No warranty allowed. Radio is junk. Panels on front seats have broken loose. Interestingly, original 2008 battery works in all seasons. Vehicle sometimes sits for two-three weeks and starts on demand. Mileage on road is low 20's. Alignment has been a challenge. Ride is good and pulls 2,000 pound boat well.
Honest friendly car dealer. The photos online provided an excellent overview of the vehicle we intended to purchase. We arrived knowing what to expect and were not disappointed. We were very pleased with the car, dealer and transaction. We would buy from this dealer again.
This has been a great car.

I love chevy trailblazer. I think there a great car. I would pick a SUV over any car. They feel safe to me. I think they last the test of time.
Very good customer service. The salesman stayed late to wait on us and complete the sale.
Strong engine and great turning radius
by Sailingsoon from Louisiana

Overall this has been a good car. The engine is strong and relaible. However there have been isues with the fan clutch, electric windows, and emmisions sensors. Over 15 years and 200,000 miles I have probably spent over $6000 on repairs other than normal maintenance and wear and tear. I like the way the car drives and the size- not to big and not too small. It tows well and has a good turning radius.
These were honest, fair people who know cars! What a pleasure! No nonesense negotiations. Very friendly and informative. Made car shopping low stress and no pressure.

Excellent SUV Ecellent Value
by DEF 1967 from PULASKI,VA

This SUV met all of our requirements and needs stop.. Price was a great value and almost a steal... salesman was very helpful and knowledgeable... Finance manager was very personable and pleasant... And the general manager is an awesome gentleman I already own one Chevy Trailblazer ... we purchase this one for my wife... And she got a better deal than what I received on mine and I received a great deal from anotherr dealership... Though it was within The Duncan Family ... very funny music... Dot-dot-dot you can truly eat off of it... Looks like new tires on the vehicle... Couldn't have asked for a better vehicle for the money
This was a great experience working with the purchase of my Durango. I was looking for weeks at the Big dealerships they would not deal on trying to make a sale. This dealership was friendly and made you feel welcome
V8 pulls our camper great!

Even as an older vehical it's a great ride and I love the extra room in the extended cab for strollers and such, plus enough room for groceries.
Down fall is that you can't access the 3rd row seating with 2 carseat in the first row unless you crawl over the seat... fine for kids and little adults ?
I purchased a vehicle from this dealer customer service was awesome they answered all my questions I was very impressed I even recommended a friend and she also bought a car from this dealer.
Most reliable vehicle I have owned.

This vehicle is amazing! Wish I had another again. It met all my family's needs. Space, comfort, reliability it had it all. Never had an issue in the snow. Took us where we needed to go without the stress.
I can't say enough about how pleasant this car purchase was. Ryan was very low key but eager to do what he could to help us get into the car that we were there to get. I originally found the car on-line and just happened to be in the area, so I figured I would stop in to take a look. He didn't act like the typical vulture that attacks you as you step onto the lot. He simply said hello and stepped back while we looked but kept himself available for questions. We actually did not come to a deal on that first trip, and we were both totally ok with it. I called him back almost a week later and we were able to work something out. I told him I'd like to think about it over night and he said to "take as much time as you need". I drove back up their (2.5 hours) 2 days later and made the purchase. This probably wouldn't have happened had Ryan been pushy. We had a blast driving our new car home and I've been happy with it since. I was very impressed with Ryan.
Great Bang for your buck

This truck is amazing, I’ve owned it 2 years and it hasn’t broke down on me once. All I’ve done service wise is change the oil every 3000 miles and it runs incredibly smooth. Great for hauling around friends at 3AM to nowhere, perfect for family gatherings with plenty of leg and head room in the back seats for passengers. The seats are incredibly comfortable and if you can opt for the power seats definitely go for them. Also impeccable handling off-road! If I could attach a video of me driving down my friends rough road in the woods I would but I can’t but I can tell you it’s pretty darn rough and this car takes it like a beast. 167,000+ miles and still running strong (Bought with roughly around 145,000 miles on the odo). Thanks for reading my review and definitely look into buying one of these early 2000’s gems! They’re a beautiful fleet of vehicles with very few problems !
inquired about vehicle and they responded very fast. decided to go for different type car so did not return their call. probably should have called to let them know my bad
I've loved owning this vehicle!

This is the first SUV I've owned and I've really enjoyed having it. The Trailblazers have good functionality, nice visibility, smooth driving experience, multipurpose uses, are easy to repair/maintain, and did not give me any major issues. I acquired it as a "fixer upper" with lots of little things needing attention. With the care I gave it, I definitely got out of it what I put into it! This is a great vehicle for nearly any driver.
Fantastic experience! Joe is the absolute best! He made us a fantastic deal and went the extra mile to ensure all of our questions and concerns were answered. Family health challenges made use of our current car difficult, and Joe helped us get into an SUV that fit our budget and had all the extra comforts for the many trips we need to make for appointments. Go see Joe for an honest, fair deal.

I overpaid for this pc of crap, but trans brakes electrical, basically if /when it hits 100k--plan on replacing EVERYTHING. Every turn signal, brake light, headlight, stereo quit, etc. 4wd was best feature--Never got stuck in Mn winter! 10 mpg on a good day, not comfy at all, etc...
