2005 Chevrolet TrailBlazer LS 4WD 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I purchased a 2005 TrailBlazer LS 4WD three months ago with 7000 miles on the odometer. No problems; everything works as it should. Living and driving in Chicago, it's a perfect SUV (for me) for this terrain. Excellent visibility, super-tight turning radius, and it surpresses all of those rough roads and pot holes with ease. Great power from the 4.2L inline six cylinder (almost 300hp) and experienced 17.5 mpg around the city and 21.5 on the highway. No drifting has been experienced at highway speeds. The TrailBlazer has been around for awhile and has a proven design that works well for most.


Best Features

V8 power from the inline 6 cyl with better fuel mileage. Sub-compact car- like turning radius (handy for city parking!). Comfortable seating and ergonomics. Excellent brakes for an SUV! Comes with Class III towing hitch. Handy storage areas built in.


Worst Features

More truck than car in the ride. Spend $ on some good running boards ($300 for mine); otherwise, you'll smash the side of the seat getting in and out. Rear seats fold almost flat, but not totally flat.

2005 Chevrolet TrailBlazer LS Rwd 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

This SUV handles great and will tow heavy loads with no problem. We have taken a long trip with 7 passengers comfortably. The seats fold flat easily and the ride is great. The gas mileage is its weak point 17mpg but we knew that before we bought it.


Best Features

OnStar / phone is great. Dual AC works perfect. Seats are comfortable


Worst Features

17 mpg could be improved

2005 Chevrolet TrailBlazer LS 4WD 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

We got our '05 Trailblazer LS 4x4 in Dec '05 and we love it. So much room, and power. A week after we got it we went from OH to CT, 740 miles one way, and averaged 21 mpg the whole trip and it did great in the snow.


Best Features

4x4, XM radio, OnStar, all the room


Worst Features

Making the trip computer standard

Review

I traded my Dodge Dakota for the Trailblazer as I wanted more room and better gas mileage. I found I got 20 MPG on the highway doing 70 mph, which was a huge improvement for me. I love the room it offers and it handles great in corners. The sunroof and 4X4 features are just an added bounce. All in all I'm very happy with my purchase.


Best Features

The leg room and the sunroof.


Worst Features

Seat belts could be mounted differantly as I find they cut into your neck while driving.
