2005 Chevrolet TrailBlazer Review:
The front set belts are in a bad place (don't like it at all). My gas gauge went out, gate lift light wont go off, brake lights work when they want to, always replacing head lights, rubber on the back doors falling off. That's just to name a few, the list goes on and on and on. If you have not had a problem with your Trailblazer you are 1 of the lucky 1's.

Pros: What do you like about your 2005 Chevrolet TrailBlazer?
4WD is good in snow country and icy weather.
Nice ride, 20 mpg is the best we've gotten.
Like that the back seats can lay flat.

Cons: How would you improve your 2005 Chevrolet TrailBlazer?
I would make is a little wider.
Get better gas mileage.
See what can be done about blind spots while driving and backing.

2005 Chevrolet TrailBlazer Review:
It has wind noise on passenger side. Had to replace pulley bearings, fuel gauge while under warranty, now speedometer doesn't work in cold weather until engine warms up. Weird. Trailblazer ext looks really big from the outside, but is really somewhat cramped on the interior. Needs to be 4-6 inches wider. It's ours, it's paid for, I hope it runs forever.

Looks.

Cons: How would you improve your 2005 Chevrolet TrailBlazer?
I don't know how to improve a lemon.

2005 Chevrolet TrailBlazer Review:
The only thing good about my TrailBlazer is the looks. Other then that the rest of the TralBlazer is not worth 2 cents. Transmission, 2xs warp rotors, rusting in corner of back door, bad battery, leaking valve, rubbing in steering, driver door to much play in it, rubber on third door melting, bearing in pulley bad, flickering of head lights, head light work when they want, gas gauge going hay wire, dash lights don't work, rust stains in the carpet everywhere. What a big lemon.

Pros: What do you like about your 2005 Chevrolet TrailBlazer?
Love the Bose stereo system, cruise control, GPS sys., onstar,and dvd player. I also like the way the back seat lays completely flat.

Cons: How would you improve your 2005 Chevrolet TrailBlazer?
Most everything under the hood. Fluids that are used under hood should be available at places besides dealership.

2005 Chevrolet TrailBlazer Review:
I do like all of the "extras" but I would NEVER recommend a GM car to anyone and I definitely would never purchase one again. I've been to the dealership for repairs so often that my truck would probably be considered a straight lemon. Never again!!!

Pros: What do you like about your 2005 Chevrolet TrailBlazer?
Overall performance is ok but minor things break like the console door, the gas gauge, and the lumbar adjuster on the drivers seat.

Cons: How would you improve your 2005 Chevrolet TrailBlazer?
more attention to detail, improve fit and finish, and find better suppliers for parts used. a 2 year old vehicle should not have the gas gauge quit working after 2 years.

2005 Chevrolet TrailBlazer Review:
Overall appearance is nice but the small details and overall fit and finish are lacking. performance is good but mileage could be better.
