2006 Chevrolet TrailBlazer EXT SUV LT 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Just got back May 23rd after leaving on the 14th of May to Memphis TN,and out west to Arizonia to the Grand Canyon, and over to Nevada to Las Vegas,Hoover Dam, then to Wyoming to Yellow Stone National Park,before heading back to Bowling Green KY.... While pulling a 2,000 lbs of a Pop-up Camper. I only got 16 miles to the gallon while towing camper trailer... But can honestly say that mechanically,driving,and the ride was excellent,didn't have any problems drove 4,995 miles including the trip back to Bowling Green KY... And I will add that we didn't let any grass grow at speed at 70-73 miles an hour even when we went through light rain showers.. It went right through the wet roads just fine..


Best Features

Handling,ride,and fun to drive....


Worst Features

Improve Gas mileage,make Bose radio with 6 CD changer not to skip when you hit bump of any size.. Add Lumbar Support to Passenger side not just driver side... Also for better seeing in all weather conditions add Fog/Driving Lights to all TrailBlazers EXT not just few,replace Doors Weather Stripping

Review

Definitely more bang for the buck. Very functional in design and the most comfortable 3'rd row seat ever. This SUV will turn on a dime. Any family should feel safe riding in this vehicle.


Best Features

Room, Ride, Comfort, Stereo, Steering


Worst Features

Could be better on gas mileage, but most SUV's are not that great on gas mileage anyway. We drive them for safety and functionality.

Review

To sum it up I have been trying to give it back since 3 days after I bought it. In one year no exaggeration it has been in the shop at least 50 times. Four times LAST week with another appointment set up for next week. This vehicle is poorly made, maintained, assembled and all around junk.


Best Features

Don't laugh, it has a great heater and the horn works, thats the only good qualities about it.


Worst Features

Junk the whole line and fire the designers/techs/and anyone else who thought of this horrible vehicle.

Review

MPG= 15 regardless of city/highway. This vehicle has spent more time in the dealers shop than my garage. Trans, rear defr, a/c, engine bearing, brakes have all been serviced, some of them twice. I'm not hard to please, but this is the worst vehicle i've ever owned from a maintenance standpoint. (and they keep trying to upsell me some $500 maintenance package everytime i go to the dealer). I never had these issues with the Tahoe I owned prior to this.


Best Features

XM radio, rear door access


Worst Features

How about some back seat leg room and mechanical integrity.

Review

Good News: Has lot of power, and it's comfortable for 3 kids, and 2 dogs. Bad News: 1 week after purchase, the air bag light kept coming on. Needed a new sensor. Then the OnStar would not work properly. Had to have that fixed. This winter, the molding on the hatch broke, last month, the starter was stuck. Luckily this was all under warranty. Not too happy with my Blazer being in the shop 4 times since the purchase of it 5 months ago.


Best Features

The room


Worst Features

Need to have better workmanship on product if you want to have customers come back. 4 times in the shop in the last 5 months is not something that brings loyalty to your product. Fuel economy was rated at 18-22 miles. I have never seen more then 13 in town and 17 highway.
