Think twice before buying

2005 Chevrolet TrailBlazer LS Rwd 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)
My wife always wanted one so when they were cheap in 2005, I finally agreed, even though I knew deep down it would be a mistake to buy another truck. It drinks up gas like there's no tomorrow. Resale value is poor. Other than that, it looks nice, it drives nice, it has plenty of power, lots of cargo space with seats down. It's good at what it does. We've had problems with steering - fixed under warranty. I wish we leased it rather than bought it so we could be done with it. 12-13 mpg around town on a really good day. 10-11 is typical. On the hwy 18-20. We had a '95 Suburban that got the same mileage. Think twice before you buy!
