2006 Chevrolet TrailBlazer LS 4dr SUV 4WD (4.2L 6cyl 4A)


This is
my second Trailblazer.
First one was 2003.
Kept the 2003 for about 4 years and 90,000+ miles.
I bought the 2006 in 2009 with about 30,000 miles on it.
It now has 115,000 miles. Love its power and appearance.
Gas mileage is acceptable with about 15-17 city and 20 -22 on the highway.
Only problems with it other than maintenance was the fuel sensor, which I had to replace and belt tensioner ($20.00).
I have replaced the brakes twice.
Tires replaced once.
Used it to pull 4,000 lb trailer for a while.
It did it, but it wasn't happy.
With a 3,000 lb trailer it drives much better, but hwy mileage sank to about 13-14 mpg.
When this one wears out I will look for another one.

Best Features

Responsive engine. Comforatble seating. I have power seats but still use a small cushion to see better over the hood. To date, it reliability has been outstanding. The interior is a bit funky, but it it functionable and it suits me. All the controls are in easy reach and no real need to take your eyes off the road. Love it.
