2002 Chevrolet TrailBlazer LTZ from North America
GM had the last laugh, I bought a lemon and let them get away with it!
There have been tons of electrical problems with this car. Driver's convenience package won't reset the mirrors or settings, driver's side mirror didn't defrost, wiper motor module was replaced, radio was replaced for automatically switching stations, the A/C ignition switch was replaced due to stalling out three times, the tail lights have blown several times. I've also had both sets of rotors replaced twice, however, brake pads were fine??? When I got the car, we noticed the luggage rack on top was put on backwards. There have been 5 recalls on this car the first two years of it's life. BEST PART, I actually got GM to provide me a 2-year supposedly bumper to bumper warranty, because in every instance, but the windshield wiper problem, the car was under it's 3-year/36,000 mile warranty. However, they had the last laugh, because, while I was guaranteed this warranty would be an extension of my 3-year/36,000 mile warranty, I just took the car in and the repairs were not covered. EVEN BETTER, now, I read these comments, I have been complaining about my engine sounding loud for the past 2 years and the dealership could not duplicate the problem. They told me when I just took it in, it's probably the fan clutch, but MY Warranty DOESN'T COVER THIS! I am telling everyone I know to stay away from GM cars - especially the Trailblazers!
I love the comfort and style of this car - very roomy and always looks good. Too bad GM couldn't spend a little more on the parts.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

How sad... GM and Ford are closing plants at a FURIOUS pace. Ever wonder why? I bought a GM truck (made in Mexico) and it has 50K miles without a SINGLE problem, not even a light bulb has burned out. Everything still works perfectly. The tires and battery are original. I also bought a Japanese Car (Subaru) made in USA. The quality is wonderful! I don't know what the "big 3" can do... How many Honda, Toyota, or Nissan owners are flocking to their showrooms? It's really sad...
