Edmunds' Expert Review

A strong drivetrain, plenty of room inside and a long features list make this an attractive family vehicle, but some cheap interior materials and iffy handling keep it from gaining our full recommendation.

2005 Highlights

The TrailBlazer gets a host of minor interior improvements this year. Seating has been restyled and boasts comfort and quality improvements. Detail changes include revised chrome accents, trim enhancements and a new instrument panel appearance. Among the new options are an audio system with CD/MP3 compatibility and full-length side curtain airbags (which replace last year's front-seat side airbags).

Research Pays
itcd,03/28/2014
I purchased this vehicle 3 years ago with 87000 miles, and have since brought it up to 107000 so far. One thing I have noticed is that it seems to get a lot of guff around the Internet, but seems more like a mixed bag. Some people have transmissions failing prematurely, while I know of people with over 200k and no rebuild of either motor or transmission. This vehicle isn't for everybody. It isn't a "just buy it and drive it" type, it requires a bit more care and attentiveness than the average person will want to put into it. But for those who are willing, it is quite rewarding and proves to be snappy with its strong engine and okay steering response.
BAD CAR! Don't buy!
dave1234567,05/27/2011
This car was purchased almost brand new from the local Chevy dealer. We have had nothing but problems from week one. To start with the most recent problem, almost the entire dash is out. We have a gas gauge that works and nothing else. There are too many items we have replaced to list. Stay away from this car!
Treated like Trump
John,05/29/2018
I bought my Trailblazer in 2006, a year old from Hertz. It was a rental. The reviews were terrible. I checked it out and thought is was pretty good. I bought it. Twelve years later and over 122,000 miles it is still great. On line people still bash the Trailblazer, but with routine maintenance and what I consider normal repairs for any vehicle as it ages, the Trailblazer is still great. At one time I thought my transmission was going bad, but I did my research and come to find out it was only the throttle body. Replacing the throttle body is easy and cheap. Can be done for less than 200 dollars and about 20 minutes. I watched a you tube video and did it myself. I'm not a mechanic. After reading all the horror stories of people buying new transmissions and still having troubles, I think they got taken advantage of by their mechanics. These people then go online and blame the Trailblazer. This is not the fault of the Trailblazer. Also, my Trailblazer survived three teenage sons learning to drive and then abusing the heck out of it when they went solo. I have nothing but admiration for my Trailblazer.
Great Grip, Gumption & Go
Eden Valley Guest Ranch,01/19/2017
This is a basic vehicle allowing a business or personal practical purpose: economical, comfortable and no frills, which we do not want nor need. Going on a supply run with many ice chests for our catering business is so much easier with this Trailblazer. A full 48" width allows better loading and hauling. We do not have to bend over to load or unload, so easier on us. It is on a 1/4 ton pickup frame and is tough, handles bad roads easily, 18" snow drifts and more. Has clearance and good lighting for driving rural. You will feel the road only a bit more than a car. Quiet inside. Windows and doors fit tight. We have top of the line winter tires (they were expensive). In summer we switch to a basic summer radials. Two full sets of rims to make it fast and easy. Dash is basic and I like it that way. Easy to clean. My trips to Costco in bad weather are no problem. The back seats fold down and I have hauled pole saws, skis, and more. We travel up a curvy steep grade and in ten miles go from 911 feet elv to 3300 for a grocery run. I buy premium no ethanol gas and get about 20 MPG loaded, 60 MPH, and heater or air, with power to spare. Deer here require fast stopping sometimes and this rig responds. I hope we see more vehicles like the Trailblazer in the future. That is economical, basic, hauling capacity and runs good. This is a very functional ride and takes four persons comfortably with room in the back area for luggage. What was wrong with America to be so out of touch with so many rural people to discontinue the Trailblazer? Still going strong!

Should I lease or buy a 2005 Chevrolet TrailBlazer?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
