The '08 Chevy Trailblazer is prime for family, seating five people comfortably.

I love my Trailblazer. It's a super comfortable ride. I especially enjoy the height of the vehicle because it's not low like most 4-door cars but it's not too lifted either. It of course gets the best gas mileage when all of its components are functioning properly. I normally average 320+ miles per tank of gas. I believe my tank holds between 20-26 gallons. I'm currently sitting at about 197000 miles and am now in need of a new water pump which I have been told it common for my vehicle mileage and model year. There's also an ongoing issue with the circuit runner on the back passenger side where the rear lights are. I've had to replace that entire section twice now.

Looks terrible but still starts up and drives wherever you need it to go.

This vehicle has had a rough life. I am not very easy on my vehicles. Mechanically the car is very sound. Has a brand new set of upper and lower ball joints, brand new set of brakes all the way around, new plugs and wires. As for the body it is pretty beat up, full of dents scrapes and scratches, the wheels are starting to oxidize pit. It has minimal rust around the lift gate. Some of its features include a fully operable did, aftermarket stereo, leather seats, heated front bucket seats, steering wheel controls, auto dimming rearview mirror, power heated side view mirrors, 2nd row radio, and has dual zone climate control.

2008 Chevy trailblazer is a great vehicle!

Not a single problem. I have had it for about 1 year. I have had the same vehicle before (it was an older model). It got flooded during hurricane Harvey. I bought a newer model and have enjoyed it ever since. It is like having my car back. It is very comfortable and roomy. It can carry 4 full grown adults. It is easy to get around in a big city. Since I got it I haven't had any problems with it. I make sure and get it maintained on a regular basis. The features include an auxiliary jack so I can plug in an Ipod without having to deal with CD’s anymore. I can rely on this vehicle to get me from point A to B.
