Great for towing, bad for driving

2005 Chevrolet TrailBlazer LS 4WD 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)


Leased it to tow my boat, great for towing, tons of power. Don't believe what sticker says about gas mileage, they like to pad the numbers. If I would have known I was gonna get 11 mpg I would have leased something different. Love to change my own oil, but for the life of me why would they bury the oil filter so you can't get at it, and I'm a mechanic. All that aside it's not a bad SUV, if they built an SUV that got 40 mpg everyone would buy it.

Best Features

Interior pretty decent, not bad to drive for an SUV, I feel pretty safe in it. When towing 2500 lbs, you don't even know it.

Worst Features

For all the technology out there, there has got to be a better way to get better gas mileage, why bury an oil filter where you can't get at it.
