#1 of 31 Would you buy it again?
Jul 13, 2008 (5:13 pm)
I am in the process of buying a new car and I am looking at the Trail Blazer. I have a Toyota Highlander right now and I hate it. I am looking for on 07-08. My question is, have you been happy with your TB and have you had any major problems that would keep you from buying another one? Any advice would be most helpful.

I've been happy with mine, but being an older design I think I would look elsewhere for something new.

I really like the 07 & 08's. I have searched and it looks like I can get a pretty good deal on one but I see where they are not going to be making the TB in the future. Not sure what to do.

No. Never again. I'll replace it with a Chrysler Aspen.
Heck, if GM and Chrysler amalgamate, it might be a Blazin'Aspen.

#6 of 31 o2 censors

I hope the new ones are better. I have an 04 and have kept the maintance up on it, however after having it for 3 yrs ( I bought it new). I have had nothing but problems and will not buy another one. I am very disappointed with Chevy. They use to produce quality cars and trucks. Just to list a few problems: both o2 censors are out, back hatch will not open, replaced both head lights with in the last 6 months and just had another one go out this week, It is starting to die on me when I come to a stop or am getting ready to turn, the radio and windows will not stay on or roll down after I remove the key. (this is one of the features that I really liked). Im just waiting for the other ball to drop. The dealer will fix it for over $2400.00. I am looking to see if I can get it done cheaper. I would not be this upset if the car was an older car like a 96. But it is only a 04 and the problems started when it was 3 yrs old. Do your research and don't get screwed.

#9 of 31 Did I make a mistake?
Jan 02, 2011 (7:25 pm)
On Thurs. 12/30/10 I bought a 2006 Trailblazer LS with a few perks/DVD player and I don't know what else. It's a basic car though. It doesn't even have cruise control.
Anyway, after researching for hours today I think I may have made a big mistake in buying the car.
All I see is electrial issues, mechanical issues, possible fire issues, on and on.
I bought it to carry my disabled husband's respiratory equipment around. And I thought it would be safer than the PT Cruiser we traded in.
I am so very scared. Any ideas what I should look for? Any nice comments on the car or am I doomed for 5 years?

I would not worry about your TB, some of these cars had issues but they were really on earlier models. And of course all cars have issues of some kind. I have an 04 LT and it had some issues over the years but nothing serious and now seems to more reliable the older it gets. The inline 6 is bulletproof, just keep up with your maintentance, oil and trans fluid changes and you hopefully will have the car you had hoped for. I have 125K on mine still going, no issues at the moment!
