One of the worst vehicles GM has ever made
Fog light switch pushed completely inside of the panel.
Automatic Mirrors stopped working.
AWD went out just after having the vehicle 13,000 miles.
Engine was loud with every start up, and had a faint knocking sound, similar to a rod knock.
Tire wear was horrible.
Computer needed replacement at 110,000 miles\
Door locks would sometimes fail, and the front passenger door would sometimes only open from the outside.
The gauges for fuel, battery, and oil pressure would stop working, and when this happened check engine, oil, ABS, airbag, and ect lights came on. This occurred while driving every time, daily, and would knock out the cruise feature.
It was great when we bought the vehicle. We needed something that would tow a U Haul comfortably, be roomy for many trips (military lifestyle), and hopefully would last us maybe 10 years.
After the estimated mpg (22) turned out to be more like 12 (highway) and all of the electronics errors occurred was when we decided that we just couldn't afford the vehicle any longer.
The value of the vehicle dropped to almost $7000, that was a drop of half the value in 2 years. Repairs alone would total to half of the value!
The GM extended warranty covered the light switch repair, but the repair price didn't even go over the deducible, which is $100. The warranty was worthless, a poor use of $2500.
The only great thing about the car was that is never left us stranded, rode like a car even over the most unrepairable roadways, comfortable rear leg room, compliments, and it had a nice lumbar.
The storage space in the back is over exaggerated. We get about the same space in our Vibe.
We traded it in last month, but we wouldn't have had it any other way.
I like GM vehicles, but will never buy a TrailBlazer ever again.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
