The people are great here. I was a little hesitant to go to my first meet, but everyone was very cool. I didn't know anyone and everyone made me feel welcomed.

BTW, my client and some of the co-workers made fun of me for about a week, b/c I went to the meet. They got their yucks in, but look who's spending $300 for brake install...not me!

Because of this site I am enjoying my Envoy more. From posts searched my first mod was installing Hotchkis rear anti sway bar for better handling. I bought it new in 2002 and because of this site I have done two repair jobs on my own due to the instructions and pictures posted here. I installed a new TCCM after reading many posts about 4X4 problems. Also just yesterday I took apart my throttle body and removed a lot of grime from over 72,000 miles useage. Also from searching suspension posts I solved my poor handling problems by having lowering springs installed and new shocks and struts.

The only regret I have about this site is not discovering it until I moved to UAE and away from Southern California. I lived in Escondido from November 2005 to January 2007 and Thousand Oaks until July 2007. I made a few trips to the desert, but I wouldn't call the dirt roads I drove in the hills and mountains offroading. If I had discovered this site back then, I would have hooked up with Roadie, TeeBees, and the other SOCAL folks and started the mods much sooner.

As far as this site influencing my decision to keep the TB, no way. The TB is the best vehicle I've ever owned. Most of the problems I had with it were either due to my own negligence (pounding into sand dunes without proper protection or modifications) or dealer misdiagnosis.

With that said, this site is the greatest wealth of knowledge and source of community for our platform. I value it and the people that support it greatly.

I was lucky enough to find it when I typed in "Trailblazer lift kit" in google, and the mod bug has stuck with me since. I was torn between the TB and an 05 Hemi Ram 4x4. Lift kits for them are expensive, but plentiful. I had never seen a lifted TB, and thought it'd be cool. Then found this site right before I decided, and it swayed my decision completely. I just lurked for a couple of days, looking at lift info, etc, and decided on the TB.

I agree with other posts. My TB would be long gone if it were not for the help of folks on this site. However, in reality, my TB is still on the fence. I live in a downtown/condo environment and don't have the mechanical resources or the time to keep dealing with all of the nickel and dime problems this thing has - much less the major issue I had getting my front diff rebuilt (luckily under warranty). Sad to say, this is the last GM vehicle I will own for a long, long time.

I originally bought mine as a family hauler and like others have said many of small issues would have led me to question keeping it or its long term reliability. But with the help of this site, I have been able to repair the major stuff myself. I belong to several other GM and Chrysler owner boards and this by far is the best one around. The people here have great knowledge and a much better attitude toward helping others. When my current ride tires out, I won't hesitate to get another one perhaps an Envoy Denali, Rainier, or 9-7x there are already great values on the used market currently.

I know next to nothing about cars but I've picked up enough jargon on this site so that when I'm at the dealership they think I know more than I actually do.

I had my TB before I found this site, hadn't had a problem (does the rear end noise count?) that would make me get rid of it. Was spending lots of time on Tahoe sites, GF's Tahoe was possessed! shift into 4 low, locks cycling, electrical system dead... was looking for similar things and thought " Lets look and see a TB site" found TrailVoy and really liked the attitude/helpfulness of the people here, some other sites just flame people who ask normal questions.
Thanks to all who have made this site what it is!
