2008 Chevrolet TrailBlazer SS 4dr SUV AWD (6.0L 8cyl 4A)


Coming off a 2004 Z06 lease I wanted to keep some "Vette" in my life w/2 kids and frequent trips to snow country demand AWD. While no Vette, it does instill confidence leaving tolls or kicking down to pass at any speed. Ride is nice and handling is good for this size vehicle. Seats are comfortable. Window doesn't close properly properly at high speed. I have to slow down, then close to get proper fit wout wind noise. Also transmission wants to slow this car down when you try to coast at about 68 mph. which makes it challenging to keep a steady foot in traffic at that speed. I like my wifes FX45 2x better but after comparing stickers I'm happy.

Best Features

Of course: 0-60 time. Agressive looking front and side profile OnStar hands free linked with Verizon family plan is awesome.

Worst Features

Gearing: Quality: GM's continuing problem with Key - Steering lock mechanisms. It sticks (it did that on both my Vettes too). Duel Exhaust pipes on the other side! Shave some pounds off somewhere..
