Used 2008 Chevrolet TrailBlazer LT for Sale
Reviews for 2008 Chevrolet TrailBlazer
2008 TrailBlazer Owners Manual (pages 2-27 & 2-28) describes a transmission feature which when employed slows the vehicle down by downshifting; AKA: ENGINE BRAKING. I does not work and GM will do nothing about it. DO NOT buy a 4WD version. In fact forget the Chevrolet TrailBlazer. (and as a matter of fact as Consumer Reports generally advises, Forget GM). I have owned 19 GM products since 1946 and the '08 Trailblazer is the last. Bailing them out was a mistake. If more detail is necessary please contact.
The Trailblazer has sufficient room for passengers for my family (of 4) but lacks the space for carpooling (seats only 5 people). There is lots of space in the back for camping gear and/or luggage and there is a roof rack for more. The overall quality is very good, but I am unimpressed by the upholstery (leather would have been great, but has "cargo truck" cloth like a work truck). Power and performance is very good and shifting for both the transmission and the transfer case is smooth and precise. My mileage is well below the EPA estimates (as has been my experience with most vehicles) but the Trailblazer has a big fuel tank. Overall rating is a 4 and I would recommend it to a friend with the above caveats.
Having lived by with and for a Ford Explorer V8 Eddie Bauer for the last 6 years I really did not want to drive anything else.Then I saw a low mileage Trailblazer, tested it and have been in love with it from day 1. It has great acceleration , is quiet and I cannot speak highly enough about the handling and allround performance. The sound system is great with the enhancement of Onstar and Sirius satellite radio I am a happy and contented driver.
