the truck has been 100% reliable with 110,000 km on it. Average fuel economy has been 23.5 mpg. I did not care for the factory seats so I upgraded them to buckets with a console. I use the truck alot for towing snowmobiles on a trailer up mountain roads and for work. the truck has also performed well off road when required.
Engine has good towing power and the drive train has taken alot of abuse and is still very solid. The locking differential and 4wd system seems to work well off road
The seats from factory stink. The inline 6 engine in the TrailBlazer would be a nice option.
