2005 Chevrolet TrailBlazer EXT LS 4WD 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)
A complete lemon. We purchased the car in 2005 and have had more problems than we ever had with any other car.
Year 1, trips to dealer for repairs 4
Cause, after market DVD player falling off the ceiling and no volume in stereo.
Water leaking through window seal.
Year 2, trips to dealer 3
Cause, broken belts in two tires, that they denied were a problem. Resulted in complete replacement of tires and wheel hub and bearing assemblies.
Year 3, Replaced breaks and rotors
Year 4, Replaced tires and exhaust system which had completely rusted out.
Year 5, New breaks and idle pulley and serpentine belt. Also new water pump.
This year, needs new shocks, struts and tires. Power steering line has to be replaced. Rubber lines have rotted and burst.
Poor quality and workmanship as well as terrible mechanical design.
