2008 Chevrolet TrailBlazer LT 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

We recently purchased a 2008 Chevy TrailBlazer 1LT... our first American built car after a trio of Nissans.We are very happy with our purchase so far. Excellent ride,expected fuel mileage 15city/21hwy,excellent space for each passenger,a real surprise. We were not set on a TrailBlazer but after our purchase we would not hesitate to purchase a newer more updated version if it was produced.


Best Features

On-Star-a much over looked under marketed product which we are very happy to have. Take off speed. Size of vehicle


Worst Features

Update the interior to complete with Ford products,6 speed trans

2008 Chevrolet TrailBlazer SS 4dr SUV AWD (6.0L 8cyl 4A)


Review

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.


Best Features

Fun to drive, gobs of power, not many around, lots of creature comforts and rock solid reliability.


Worst Features

Better gauge faces especially the white tach. 5-speed transmission would be nice too.

2008 Chevrolet TrailBlazer LT 4dr SUV 4WD (4.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Best SUV for the price! Have driven quite a number of new and used SUV's. In my opinion it was well worth the price I paid! Very comfortable to sit in, controls within easy reach, well designed. The front bottom seats are especially long, which relieves leg stress on long trips! Very stable on the road, even at 70. Hardly any sway around corners. Great fuel economy with 6 cylinder engine. Plenty of passing power. All the bells and whistles. Very roomy trunk. Great CD sound system. Easy to reach oil filter.


Best Features

Passenger Safety, Very Comfortable, Passing Power, Fuel Economy, Price and Re-Sale Value!


Worst Features

Design flaw with the front seat bottom plastic cover plates. They have clips that hold them in place. Within 2 years both sides have broken clips. Instead of buying replacements and waiting for them to break again...I carefully drilled one hole on each plate and installed 2 chrome screws! Perfect Now

Review

First TB was 02, and didn't like 4.2. Was traded for 04 Tahoe that was great, but I was offered special incentives to trade on a 08TB 5.3, and have enjoyed it ever since. MPG average is about 18.2 and seems to improve with middle grade 89.


Worst Features

6 speed AT

2008 Chevrolet TrailBlazer LT 4dr SUV w/2LT (4.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

The stabilitrack light comes on and the dealers can not find a problem. The vehicle once would not move when that light came on. We finally used Onstar to capture the error code but the dealerships we took it to could not identify the problem. The windows are slow to go up and are noisy.


Best Features

None!


Worst Features

Ascertain the nature of the stabilitrack problems and repair them!
