2005 Chevrolet TrailBlazer LS 4WD 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)
This is our first SUV and it has been wonderful. I would probably buy the 7 passenger now but at the time it wasn't an issue. There is a 12" height difference between my hubby and myself, we are both pretty particular about how a vehicle fits us, and we both fit comfortably. This vehicle has been very dependable, has plenty of towing capability, and lots of space for our cross country vacations with the family. We make sure the maintenance is taken care of routinely and have never had any issues with it. MPG is 16-17 city and 20-22 hwy and that's loaded down. It handles great in the snow and I feel very safe driving around my little ones.
sunroof, smooth ride (for a SUV), stylish, dependable, lots of room, tight handling
back seats should fold flat, less road noise inside
