Chevy trailblazers are the best SUV trucks.

I love this vehicle because it is very reliable. Good on gas for it to be an SUV. It is performance in the snow is amazing! This vehicle is very roomy, fitting maybe 6-7 people. Lots of room in the rear for groceries. I had this vehicle for about 2 years, I brought it used at 130, 00 miles. It now has 200, 00 miles and the engine still runs strong. This vehicle is can take a licking and keep ticking. If you maintain this vehicle, it will take you a long way. The only thing about the Chevy's is at some point you will have problems with many of the sensors or even making sure you keep the throttle body clean of gunk. But it will last forever if you maintain it.

Limitless possibilities: an interesting detail is the smoothness of it.

My vehicle is very reliable and drives very smoothly. The only thing I'd say is that it takes a lot to fill up this kind of vehicle. I love the fact that this vehicle has a lot of room throughout the vehicle. You can fit three people in the middle with extra space in the back as well. This vehicle is very reliable with minor to no problems. I did have a problem with the air coming on normally when I first got the car but, now things are running much better. The seat feel extremely comfortable and I love that it has 4 wheel drive so that it is safe to drive in the winter months as well.

Overall the Chevrolet trailblazer is a dependable, spacious family vehicle.

The trailblazer has not had many main problems just the water pump and gear shift has to be fixed. The vehicle is spacious for a family with lots of trunk space which is always super helpful. It is very comfortable and we have leather seats which are nice. There's lots of legroom. To me with lots of body room and trunk space this makes it good for travels. Also we have a sunroof but hardly use that at all. So I could do without it. Not a feature I would have to have. Seat warmers in the front seats are cool. The individual air controls in the back seat are a plus as well.
