Bought after my TrailBlazer was totaled in an accident, it held up so well I knew I wanted another vehicle on this platform. The 9-7X may look a lot like the TrailBlazer but it drives completely different. The handling is absolutely fabulous for a truck based SUV. The 4.2 L inline six is an excellent engine, I looked at the V8 but I feel that the six is just as good. Fuel economy may be bad for a car but it is an SUV so I find my averages of 17.3 city and 22.8 highway (about 72-74 mph) to be acceptable.
Excellent handling and acceleration, very quiet inside, great interior design, Bose sound system, heated seats
Auto-dim rear view mirror, low-range 4-wheel drive though all-wheel drive is perfectly sufficient for almost all applications
