2004 Chevrolet TrailBlazer LS 4WD 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)

Review

I purchased my 2004 TrailBlazer around a year ago and have put around 14,000 on it since. As of 43,000 miles there have been no real problems thus far. The engine I find is perfectly powered to deal with towing boats, trail riding, and on-ramp acceleration. I have only two complaints the 8" ground clearance when I am on trails or the beach (my girlfriends Rav 4 sits higher) and the whopping 18mpg on the highway. At $4.20 a gallon where I live its a beast keeping the tank full. As far as cornering, it's an SUV. What can you really expect.

Favorite Features

Curb appeal. It truly is a good looking SUV compared with the EXT (family wagon)and most other foreign made SUV's. The Onyx black color that I bought looks sexy day or night.

Suggested Improvements

Hindsight is 20/20 and in 2004 18mpg was not quite as much of a worry as it is now. With that in mind improvements in efficiency would be great and perhaps another 2" in ride height.
