For the Money, Best SUV on the Road
By Mel Turner on
2005 Chevrolet TrailBlazer LS 4WD 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)
We've put over 134,000 miles and this baby still sounds brand new. Engine so quiet, I can't hear it idle at red lights. I only use Mobile 1 synthetic oil. Only two problems since ownership, fuel gauge and ignition switch. Warranty covered them. This is the only vehicle my wife drives. We have two Volvo s80s that's collecting dust in the garage. I'll probably have to sell them. Suv only requires maintenance every 50,000 miles besides oil change. One more thing, this suv is great on the road. The only suv we'll ever own. We love our trailblazer. For longevity, only use synthetic oils and lubricants. With my Continental tires, I get 18 city and 22 highway.
Low maintenance, strong 6 cyl engine, comfort, price, on the fly 4wheel drive. 4wheel performs exceptional in Colorado mountains and snow. Chevy, please do not stop manufacturing Trailblazers.
