4.3L vortec V6. 4-spd. AT w/ OD. Ride height and size. Tough chassis and drivetrain. Uniroyal liberator A/T. Acceleration. Body style might be old, but I still like it. Cargo size with rear seats down

Gone places that blazer should have never went. It's a little mountain climber, Sand hills, mud, and snow. all around the blazers gas MPG isn't to bad for a SUV. had to fix a water pump but that was my fault. it got clogged and water couldn't move to the pump. Other then the water pump. This vehicle is a tank for having 151000 miles on her. It's perfect for fitting subwoofers in the back and easy to find places to install the wires. Just off the battery im running 1200 watts for two 12's. and the volts stand strong. Still have stock alternator. Really loud. This SUV is worth it. Love my Blazer.

Blazers best 4 wheel drive ever.

The blazer is great has lots of leg and head room. Back seats fold down for extra space in the back we can take our dog with us in complete safety and he has room to move around while leashed in the back. The four wheel drive is so simple to use and a real help in our Wisconsin winters. With regular care and upkeep it has served us well no major issues and has over 150000 miles on it so far I would not hesitate to drive it on long trips. Fuel economy is about 20 mpg and even better on the highway when traveling. Will be keeping this vehicle a lot longer it is very reliable.

It does cost a lot to fuel it up and uses a lot of gas because of the V8 engine.

My blazer is very nice. Leather seats, heated in the front. Seats 7 people. Has built in DVD player so kids can watch movies on long rides. Does awesome in the snow, it has 4x4. Has a V8 engine so does use a lot of fuel. Its big and roomy and very comfortable to ride in. It has a lot of cup holders both in the front and the back. I have had this vehicle for about 8 years. It's been a good and reliable vehicle.

The foldable seats and the extra comfortable seats are a must in my vehicle.

I love my vehicle. The only one thing is problematic is, how much gas I use. Performance wise is the best vehicle and the room is awesome. Especially since I have 3 kids and the extra room I have in the vehicle is great. The sears are very comfortable also. And I love how I can fold up the back seats to make extra room, is a huge plus for me and my family.

My Chevy blazer is a beautiful blue color and a lot of people admire it.

My Chevy blazer has a 4. 0 liter engine so I go through a lot of gas I have had some transmission problems. I also don't find the truck comfortable at all. My check engine light is always on and even after I get it fixed it comes right back on it has power everything even the seats and a cool sunglasses holder built in it also has a great stereo system.

Great family car with plenty room for luggage or groceries. Plenty of legroom.

Since I have had the car I haven't had any mechanical problems. Its roomy and comfortable. I love the gold color, . Helps not to see dirt. I get at least three hundred miles per fill-up in gas. The sound system gets really loud. It handles all the curves in the road very well. It also has airbags on both driver and passenger sides.

2005 Trailblazer four door white family car.

2005 Chevy trailblazer its white runs great has heated seats that I love because of my back pain sunroof and a DVD player grey leather seats. I do wish it had more room like a larger SUV like a escalade it would help because of the baby car seats and dogs and the DVD player is great when we travel the kids have something to do.

- Alexis M

It is old but still loveable.

My blazer is very comfortable to drive and ride in. It is wider than other SUVs so there is plenty of room to haul things. Mine has a sunroof that I absolutely love. It is older so has had some mechanical issues. The fuel gage quit working and the passenger window is closed but it sounds like it is not. It is a little loud.

- Sharon M

Perfect medium couldn't ask for better vehicle.

The blazer is very reliable and quick to warm up in the winter. It has a few sensor problems but other than that it runs and drives perfect. I couldn't ask for a better vehicle. It tows without a problem. It has plenty of room in the back for hauling anything. It's a happy medium between a small pick up and CR-V.

Blazer: the story, part 5.

My current vehicle was given to me as a gift. It was supposed to be for my brother but he died a couple of months ago. So it has sentimental value. Its old out of shape but its reliable. It get me where I need to go and places I want to go. If it were a new car I believe it would be a great purchase.

- Tyler K

Reliable and Faithful, never let's me down

Our truck may be older but we take good care of it and it runs really well. I love the weight of the truck and that it feels so heavy. It helps to feel safe in the winter. I live on a giant hill and never has the truck let me down...when it's time to get a new vehicle I will be sad to see it go.

- Kristen G

Key points on a old blazer.

Does not rust easy. The interior is starting to rip a little but is comfortable. Motor is still in good condition and has only needed basic repairs. It was no extra features on it. I like that it is durable enough to go off-road with it and the 4 wheel drive is easy to turn on and off.

- Fall S

It is reliable. I have had it for over 10 years and it is still kicking.

My blazer has been reliable over the course of my time driving it. I have had several minor issues with it, most of them cosmetic. I haven't had any serious engine problems or transmission issues. I have been driving the blazer so long that the comfort is perfect for me.

- Brady H

It's a good all around vehicle.

I like the gas mileage and the storage capacity. It's a smooth ride and has some nice cup holders. I'm not a fan of the color, there weren't many options where I bought it and every time I look at it I think ugh that's an ugly color, still I like the SUV otherwise.

- Russell J

Great car with minor issues.

It runs great but the headlights keep going out, so I spend around 35 dollars buying the sensor for the lights almost every 6 months. My gas hand is not accurate as well. Also I have no third row which is bad because I have kids but other than that I like the car.

- Ursula G

It looks great and handles very well. One of the most reliable vehicles I've owned.

The blazer is reliable and handles the road very well. I wish the interior were quieter. As speed increases so does the sound of the engine. For some reason, the rear window wiper will randomly swipe, which at first scared me. Now I'm used to it happening.

- Diane F

Blazer life works great for me, work and family.

I really love my blazer. It is used to get me back and forth to work and also as a family vehicle. It is comfortable with seats that recline. The heat and air conditioning both work very well for me and my family. I have never had any problem.

- Don B

it is really easy to handle, and is comfortable to drive

i like the suv being higher up to get in and out of, and being higher on the road. it handles well,and is comfortable to drive. I do not like that it is only a 2 door. the back seat is not real easy to get in and out of.

- donna S

I love it and it belongs to me. My car says something about my character.

I like that it's up in the air and not low to the ground. It's lots of space between me and my passenger. I absolutely love Chevy it runs good and last a long time. Take care of it and it will take care of you.

- Stephanie F

Overall a very trustworthy brand and model; I am very happy to recommend Chevy to others.

It's been very reliable and I like the size. Overall I have no real complaints. It does get surprisingly good gas mileage compared to other suv brands.Would buy another Chevy product again.

It has a great engine with minimal maintenance. It has always been very dependable.

First of all, my vehicle was not listed on the previous menu. I have a Pontiac Grand Prix and I totally love it. This is my third Grand Prix. If I could by a new one I totally would.

- Sheri G

Engine is noisy and engine needs some work.

Not a fast car and the engine is noisy. Needs a cleaning. Could be a bigger car. Color is black, grey would be better. Gps does not work, need a backup camera installed for safety.

- Les M

air conditioning no longer works

It is a very old car, but has low mileage and runs quite good for the age... However, would love to afford a newer car.. The ac does not work anymore, but everything else runs.

- Gale m

Reasons to buy a Chevy trailblazer

Very reliable, comfortable,and dependable. It's also attractive so I won't be trading it in anytime in the near future. It gets good gas mileage, around 28 mpg highway.

The safety features with side airbags.

It's really old and is garbage. I always need to repair the vehicles parts which are costly. I've had it for a while but it has always given me problems.

- Michael C

Small backseat - even feels small for me to be putting my son in the backseat

Back seat is to small- you feel cramped up and has same mechanical issues that many complain about online. The very back is very roomy is a plus
