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


I purchased my TrailBlazer used, it drives and looks great, lots of wind noise until I put on wind deflectors from wal-mart to keep the rain off the door electronics. I had serious noise in 4wd and was told it was from dry pavement.now the front def. has to be replaced and GM has offered 25% of a $5,000 bill that can be done elsewhere for $2,000 a 12 labour charge because of a very poor design. I have had to replace the rotors and pads, tie-rod ends at 60,000K. The seat skirts have to be repaired. Kept loosing antifreeze, GM replaced the Head gasket to stop the leak. No wonder GM is a sinking ship. Tires need to be replaced now at 70,000K.

Best Features

Drive is very comfortable, and can't wait to see what will go wrong next

Worst Features

Fix the wind noise, keep the rain and water off the window electronics,s lope the rear bumper deck so the rain and dirt does not accumulate.
