2008 Chevrolet TrailBlazer SS 4dr SUV AWD (6.0L 8cyl 4A)
I needed an AWD truck/SUV and opted for the TBSS (rebates, standard features). No regrets, drives great, enough power to scare you and pulls a 20' bassboat like it isn't even attached. No problems or issues in 20k miles. Only problem is no matter how I drive I can't get over 16mpg, 50 or 100 doesn't matter. Low 14 high 16, but with everything onboard and the performance not to be found ANYWHERE else in a SUV, period, I'm nit picking about the gas mileage. Love the vehicle.
Fun to drive, gobs of power, not many around, lots of creature comforts and rock solid reliability.
Better gauge faces especially the white tach. 5-speed transmission would be nice too.
