    is the Vortec 5300 option better than the V6? (daily driving, no hauling or towing)

    hmm...

    i know the GMC is a more 'bling' version of the standard Chevy, but for the price they seem pretty solid....

    i'm liking the 7 passenger seating without going to a minivan :)

    I think they have an inline 6. A friend of mine that works at a dealership says the Trailblazers have a lot of electrical problem. Take it for what its worth. :dunno:

    My parents owned an 02 trailblazer it had tons of problems, all the gauges did not work one day, A/C went out with gauges, window fell down one time (dunno) never would roll back up. It also seemed to have tons of recalls for it, had to keep taking it in. I would not buy one after that.

    edit- also wind noise in it was bad I thought

    My wife has an '05 Trailblazer, had it since January and no problems yet with it. She loves it. We've crammed a bunch of stuff in there to for hauling around so it's more than just a 'luxury' SUV.

    If all you need is the third-row seating, then get a big station wagon. Station wagons have the cargo space of a small mini van, but technically they're a car, so they drive like one.
