2008 Chevrolet TrailBlazer LT 4dr SUV w/3LT (4.2L 6cyl 4A)
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!
Comfort, creature amenities like XM and OnStar. 3LT looks.
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.
