Anyone have a Trailblazer SS?

Just wondering how you like it? How's it compare to your B-body, acceleration-wise, room-wise, comfort-wise? I'm looking into getting a 2008 2WD with 12K miles on it. Is the LS2 really "all that"?
thanks,
-Tim

No, it sucks. That's why they put them in Corvettes.

Take a look at the Saab 9-7x. It is a TBSS with a few extra goodies like Xenon headlights and interior upgrades. They are both a great bang for the buck.

1996 Cadillac Fleetwood "SS"- sold but not forgotten
1994 Cadillac Fleetwood- ongoing project
2002 Pontiac Trans Am Collectors Edition WS6 Conv't- the show car
2006 Mini Cooper S BRG 6spd- the autox gokart
2013 BMW Alpina B7 LWB- the wifes daily
2015 Audi Q7 S-line Prestige TDI- my daily

Yes, look at the Saab if you want to look like a complete homo. One of the ugliest things on the face of the earth.

I dunno Bill, I've gotta side with Elias on that one. The Saab 9.7x looks a LOT better than the "everybody on the planet has one" Trailblazer. And I think with the 5.3 and a few mods like intake and exhaust, that it would be a great daily. Should get better mileage and just a tick or two slower than the TBSS.

I've been thinking about getting one and removing all the SAAB badges and putting bowties on it.

You can get them with the LS2 as well... more of a sleeper than the TBSS.
