Too Much Gas!
By Too much gas! on
2008 Chevrolet TrailBlazer Fleet 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)
I love everything about this car EXCEPT the horrible gas mileage. I only get about 13 mpg! I have taken it in and they say that nothing is wrong and that Trailblazer's are gas hogs. It costs $65 to fill up my tank and if I am lucky I get 300 miles. We have tried high performance oil, but that didn't seem to help much. I enjoy the smooth ride and the power of the engine but it sucks both the oil and your wallet dry! We bought it with 17 mpg in town advertised BUT I have never gotten anywhere close, so we feel like we were ripped off. I have only put 10,000 miles on it and drive average. It handles well in rain and snow when the 4 x 4 kicks in.
Power, reliability & comfort.
Need to improve the gas mileage! Would like an automatic mileage tracking system in it.
