    Hello,
    My husband and I are about to pull the trigger and buy either a 2008 Ford Explorer 4x4 or a 2008 Chevy Trailblazer 4X4 (basically base models of both)- we are being offered about the same price for both- so now it is down to which do we want! This is our first suv and we won't know anyone who has either of these vehicles. Any words of advice would be wonderful! ASAP we are hoping to purchase within the next couple of days!!

    Well, I am a chevy fan. Ford transmissions will fail at some point. They just plain suck. While I am not a fan of either one I would get the Trailblazer. With fuel prices where they are and the market where it is your new SUV is going to lose 50% of it value right after you leave the lot. Make sure it fits your needs and its something you are going to pay off. If not maybe look at something else.
    Drive fast, take chances.

    Don't get us wrong, this 2009 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 can kill you quite completely dead. We mean like augured-in, test-pilot kind of beyond-recognition dead

    Plus GMs are much cheaper to fix than Fords.The 4WD system on a ford is very expensive to fix
