2004 Chevrolet TrailBlazer LS 4WD 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)
Bought this TB used with 30,000 miles. Have had nothing but good luck with it. I beat the hell out of this car (muddin and taking my toys out) and still have had zero problems with it (knock on wood). The I6 is an awesome engine, can hardly feel any difference when towing. The 4X4 is mountain goat strong - go anywhere. Comfortable for long trips, even to sleep in for a few days. Massive amounts of interior storage. All in all a good truck. Traded in from a Nissan Xterra - this is on par with an Xterra. Just a whole lot cheaper due to GMs crap resale value. Ground clearance stinks however, had to put a 3" lift on it - althought 98% will never leave pavement - still good offroad
Strong 4X4, comfortable, solid frame, can handle its own off road, plenty of power - both top and low end. Great in the snow/ice and mud. Fuel economy not bad for a larger SUV, even towing or in 4X4.
Higher ground clearance. Cute-utes have higher ground clearance than this does. More options are needed - KC lights anyone?
