2003 Chevrolet TrailBlazer LT Rwd 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)
We had this truck for 11 years, bought it new, put over 150K miles on it.
It was our most comfortable vehicle for long road trips, though fuel economy did sometimes cause us to drive the Camry.
We lost this hard working truck to a head on collision with a drunk driver in a Dodge Ram and it kept my husband safe in that event (he walked away with bruises and a single broken bone in one hand).
In all the time we had it we never had to do any major repairs, it still had original brakes, transmission, etc.
From day one it vibrated when idling at 750rpm, never figured out why..but it was never a real problem.
Reliability, Safety, no major repairs needed in 150K miles of driving it.
Ability to easily fit two car seats in back seat...and squeeze someone in between when needed (though not a comfortable place for an adult for a long drive).
