Default 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.

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.
