2006 Chevrolet TrailBlazer LS 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)
After test driving four other vehicles, the Chevrolet Trailblazer EXT was the best drive. We test drove the following 2005 SUVs: The Montero sport - very top heavy and felt like it would tip over if turned too fast, Ford Explorer - very cheap looking in the interior and not a smooth ride, heard some rattling in the front end, Nissan Pathfinder - drove like a truck, interior seats were very cheap looking and also the access to the third row was not easy, Mercury Mountaineer - pretty nice except for the roominess inside felt very tight. The minute we drove the Trailblazer, we knew it was the one. It drives beautifully and is such a pleasure to drive!
The ride is the top feature because it is such a pleasure to drive, very smooth and comfortable, second feature is the interior design, the 2-tone effect makes it look really sharp and the plush seats are roomy. Also, the air and heat vents being on the roof and floor for 2nd & 3rd row
There are only two things for improvement that I found, one being the sunvisor with the mirror should have a light on it and also a flip up cover, second being an outside temperature somewhere in the inside. Other than these, we love the Trailblazer and highly recommend it!
