I love the 4x4
Has tow package. The factory harness shorted out. I wired the 4 pin light harness from the rear right tail light. 
Has the skid plate package and a full spare tire. 

Comes with 1 Factory/ original key, 1 Spare key made at a hardware store. Total of 2 keys for this SUV

The TR is missing from the TROOPER badging on the doors. So it says OOPER. It is a Michigan thing. I bought it this way. You can buy letters online if it bothers you. 


Has cosmetic blemishes, nothing terrible. No dents or cracks in the body panels. 

Cylinder 6 misfire. Piston ring is cracked. Oil is just blowing by it. 

Transmission fluid I assume is low. Will recommend a flush and filter replacement. Why so? It was shifting real hard into 3rd gear the last day I drove it. If I were keeping it I would investigate that issue further. IMO I don't think there is anything major going on with this problem. It does need addressed though and I can't guarantee a flush and fill will fix. 

I have had the pinion seal replaced on the rear differential. It may need inspected. I add a couple ounces of fluid 1-2 times a year. Easy to do. 4x4 works flawlessly all the same.

Needs exhaust work. Needs muffler and pipe work.

I drive a 2 hour route for work. When I get home I add 2 quarts of oil every day I drive that distance even with the cracked piston ring. I cant afford the oil anymore and thus among the reasons I am selling this SUV. If you are going to drive this SUV and not fix the engine I would recommend getting the exhaust issue fixed and make sure you have a lot of oil to use. Go to the dollar store or buy Walmart brand or filter used oil or something to cut cost. I would say it burns 1 quart per hour of non stop driving. City driving you may stretch it out a little but you will have to stay up close and personal with checking the dip stick OFTEN!!!!

I imagine the person buying this SUV is going to run it into the ground or you will drop a new engine in. 

Radio doesn't work. If you are car audio smart you probably could find the loose/ severed connection. Has factory 6 disc with pioneers in doors. 

The power fold mirror only works on the passenger. If you are electronically inclined you may get the driver mirror folding again. Just don't go through a touch car wash. The power mirrors work on both sides. 

Born and raised in Texas. Minimal rust.

Before and after the new a/c compressor install the check engine light would come on and say o2 sensor bank 2 or 1??? is buried behind the engine block. My mechanic told me not to worry bout it. So when you use the air conditioning be expecting the check engine light to come on. It will go out after a couple trips.

Born and raised in Texas for 50,000 Miles
Then babied in West Bloomfield for 30,000 miles
Then I bought it with 80,000 miles
Now i'm selling it with 141,*** miles 
Had the major maintenance items done at Datsun Doctor in Waterford, MI, they are a Asian import specialist.

I have tried to baby this thing the best I can. I don't know what could have been done to avoid the cracked piston ring. It just kills me that it happened and I have to move on with my life.

GM recalls over 230,000 more Trailblazer-family SUVs over door electronics

Sun, 16 Jun 2013 11:01:00 EST

Back in August, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration announced a recall on the General Motors GMT360 SUVs (Buick Rainier, Chevrolet Trailblazer, GMC Envoy, Isuzu Ascender and Saab 9-7X) ranging from the 2005 to 2007 model years and the 2006 GMT370 SUVs (Chevrolet Trailblazer EXT and GMC Envoy XL) due to potential fires associated with the driver's door module. Initially limited to 250,000 units sold or registered in 20 Snow Belt states (and the District of Columbia), the recall has now been expanded to include an additional 193,000 of these SUVs in the US and, according to The Detroit News, 40,000 more sold outside the US, including Canada and Mexico.
Like the original recall, the issue is still a faulty driver's door module that can short out, which could lead to a fire. The Detroit News is reporting that, out of the 443,000 units being recalled, GM says that there were 58 fires that caused 11 minor injuries, and the expanded recall accounted for six fires and one injury. Despite the lower number of fires, the recall notice recommends that owners park their vehicles until the recall repairs has been performed.
On recalled units with functional modules, the repair consists of a protective coating being applied to the module, while vehicles with modules that are not working properly will have the driver's door module replaced. The official recall notice is posted below, and it includes contact information for customers of all five brands.

GM recalling 8.4M cars, 8.2M related to ignition problems

Mon, 30 Jun 2014 15:30:00 EST

General Motors today announced a truly massive recall covering some 8.4 million vehicles in North America. Most significantly, 8.2 million examples of the affected vehicles are being called back due to "unintended ignition key rotation," though GM spokesperson Alan Adler tells Autoblog that this issue is not like the infamous Chevy Cobalt ignition switch fiasco.
For the sake of perspective, translated to US population, this total recall figure would equal a car for each resident of New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Montana, Delaware, South Dakota, Alaska, North Dakota, the District of Columbia, Vermont and Wyoming. Combined. Here's how it all breaks down:
7,610,862 vehicles in North America being recalled for unintended ignition key rotation. 6,805,679 are in the United States.

GM SUV window switch recall urges owners to park vehicles outside

Thu, 07 Aug 2014 13:30:00 EST

It's not unusual for there to be a lag between an automaker announcing a recall and the official documentation showing up on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website. So it's no surprise that a recent GM campaign took about a month to appear in its official capacity. However, there appears to be some big differences between the two reports with potential safety implications.
In late June, GM announced that it needed to recall 181,984 examples of the Chevrolet Trailblazer, Buick Rainier, GMC Envoy, Isuzu Ascender and Saab 9-7x from the 2005-2007 model years, plus the 2006 Chevy Trailblazer EXT and 2006 GMC Envoy XL. The new documents paint a slightly different picture with 184,611 needing repaired and different model years listed.
The reason for the fix is still the same, though. It's possible for fluid to contact the master power window switch module in the driver's door, which can corrode the part. Eventually this could cause a short circuit, leaving the buttons inoperable and potentially leading to a fire. But the new NHTSA documents add an important note: "A fire could occur even while the vehicle is not in use. As a precaution, owners are advised to park outside until the remedy has been made."
