Thanks for the input Scavenger. Congrats on the new car.

I reckon the old saying of "to each his own" comes into play here. The Trailblazer is a good package for city use with a bit of dirt road thrown in, but I believe the true test will be whether or not it can find a home amongst the guys who put their vehicles to test in rough terrain. Having said that, I don't think GM are going to try and push this aspect of the vehicle too far. They may allude to it's 4x4 capabilities in the press, but I just don't think it is going to be taken seriously as a 4x4.

Time will tell, i could be totally wrong but I don't expect to see too many Trailblazers over landing to the Serengeti any time soon ;)

Swop my FT for a TB !!!

Hi All, some super good input from various guys and good to support each other :thumbup: I like a "sexy-chic" so my FT will remain at my side :phat: The only other thih I have to mention is the issue of a potential breakdown :( Toyota spare parts are very readily available where-ever you are . . . That made my purchase stick !! ;)

Wie sal ooit n chev wil ry as hy n toyota kan ry, die fortuner is 100 maal mooier as die trailblazer en 1000 maal meer cabable. Die trailblazer se 2de handse waarde kom nie naby aan die van n fortuner en sal ook nooit. Sit 200 000km plus op n trailblazer chev engine en ons praat weer

Daai tweedehandse waarde is wat hom aanteeklik maak.
Jy kry 'n redelike motot vir goeie prys!
Al die karre vandag is goed, die vervaardigers kan nie bekostig om swak produkte in die mark te sit nie.

Toyota is volgens my BETER!

Ek weet nie hoekom ons hier sit en die twee vergelyk nie.
Jy kan hulle nie nie vergelyk nie want die Chev (sies) is nie in die FT se klas nie, as dit by 4x4 kom nie.

TB teen FT

:hi: daar . . .ek het nog nie hier so-iets raakgesien/gelees van die TB nie hoor. As hy nie so goed gevaar het in die "tow-car" nie . . :oops: is dit soos jy gese het nie 'n goeie afskop nie . . . :spiteful: Ek wil dit nou eintlik nie noem nie :fie: maar dis soos my span wat Saterdag goed afgeskop het maar seker ook nie verder kon kom toe die "gewig" aangehaak is nie . . :rolleyes: :lol:

Jakes & Kie, het enigiemand al gehoor van 'n tiepe "cover" of skerm wat mens kry on agter in die FT te monteer om jou waardevolle toerusting soos kameras, laptops ens toe te maak. Ek het al die goed in ander SUV's gesien maar nog nie in 'n FT nie. Daar is altyd so baie dwalende ogies wat nie hul pote van jou goed kan afhou nie . . . . X( Soos die gesegde lui . . . "out of sight, out of mind"

Ek weet ook nie van een nie.
Op n vorige thread iewers het die manne al daaroor gepraat. As ek dit nie mis het nie was die antwoord maar n los kombers wat die ouens oor hulle goed gooi. Dit het nie vir my sin gemaak nie, want dan wil hulle gretige vingers mos sien wat daar onder is.
Party ouens het gese dat hulle n donkerder tint op sit sodat jy glad nie kan in sien nie.

As jy na die agter kant van die FT kyk dan is daar nie n plek vir so iets om op te rus nie, so ek glo nie daar is iets nie. Mag verkeerd wees, maar Toyota het ook niks.
