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


Review

This is my second TrailBlazer. My first was an '06 that I gave up without a single problem after 70,000 miles. GM was discounting the new '08 models so heavily I had to buy one. This is a very well-built vehicle. Naturally, GM decided to shut down the plant that makes them.


Best Features

The straight-six, interior comfort. Mileage: 21 hwy, 16 city after 2,500 miles, reliability.


Worst Features

Can't think of any.

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


Review

The TrailBlazer is a plain vanilla SUV, but get in and see what you get for thousands less than those that get the great reviews. It has some great features, phone, directions & emergency. A very nice ride, Bose speakers, buttery soft leather, 2 zone temp control & deep tinted windows. And a lot of room, I'm a big guy at 265 & I'm not squished in , the seats are large & firm with plenty of headroom.


Best Features

I wouldn't call it a feature, but this is a good ride on a road trip, you're up a bit higher with good visablity all around, cruise control & XM radio. The miles fly by.


Worst Features

I'd like some improvements in sound proofing for those road trips. The cabin could & should be quiter.

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


Review

This is my second Trailblazer. I had my first for three years without one single problem. And although some people might think the styling is a bit dated, it's unpretentious, and as functional and reliable a vehicle as you could ask for. Comfortable and fun to drive. And the inline six is bulletproof. This is one solid, well-built vehicle.


Best Features

The 4.2-litre six. Reasonably economical, has all the power you need, great torque, and incredibly reliable.


Worst Features

Can't think of a single one.

2008 Chevrolet TrailBlazer LT 4dr SUV w/3LT (4.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Drive the rest. The TrailBlazer is comfortable, powerful, roomy, handles fairly well, tows a lot, has all the gadgets. This is my second and I wasn't prepared to spend $5-10 grand more for a car with slightly better handling. These cars are bulletproof and in '06-'08 all the kinks have been worked out of this proven truckster. Rides smooth. Drive one and see for yourself. 100K trans and for around a grand get a 100K bumper-bumper and you are good to go. Buy American, save a family!


Best Features

Comfort, creature amenities like XM and OnStar. 3LT looks.


Worst Features

Handling - a few tweaks could make the car handle better, still OK as is. There are a lot of TrailBlazer fans out there, they have sold a bazillion for a reason. Improve it, don't discontinue it GM.

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


Review

Saw it, liked it, drove it, bought it. It was a great experience. The ride is smooth, acceleration good for nice sized rig and 6 cylinders. Exceptionally comfortable easy, to load groceries etc. Easy to get into and exit. Some don't like the seat belts, I do as they are lower than most and not across neck. We have been averaging 18.5 mpg. I was very impressed going over the bumps etc.


Best Features

4wd, dashboard layout, visor extensions, Bose sound system, dual climate control.


Worst Features

Fuel economy and dual pipes.
