I'm looking at two Trailblazers, neither of which is exactly what I want.
The first is a 2002 LTZ with lots of nice amenities and 50,000 miles.
The quoted price seems reasonable at around $15,000. Still, that's a
couple of years and about 25,000 miles older than I wanted.
The second is a 2005 LS EXT. That's the BIG Trailblazer. It only has
14,000 miles on it. Again, the quoted price is not unreasonable at
$24,000. It's still under warranty, but it has the V-6 rather than the
inline-6 and, well, it's big. I'm concerned about maintenance and fuel
economy -- I don't really need a truck that big.
I am currently driving a '96 Blazer with 140,000 miles on it. My kids
are bigger and I could really use a slightly larger vehicle. Also, the
Blazer is coming up on 10 years old and parts are going to start getting
I'm inclined to hold out for the LT that I want rather than one of these
two, but that could take years and I refuse to pay $30,000 for a brand
Any Trailblazer owners out there have any opinions about this situation?
