So as a result, I will be offering up my Trailblazer to him.

However, I will still be staying within the GMT360 family as I have found a suitable replacement for my daily and winter driver. It's a 2002 Oldsmobile Bravada, fully loaded:

Looking good man.. I so wish the Bravada came with a V8.. Inbetween the Saab and the Olds, I dont know which one looks the best of the 360 lineup..

Congrats! Its a good looking Olds,
Part of me wishes mine was that blue.
I am not sure if there are any slight differences between the Bravada and Trailblazer but I know going between my 02' Olds and Moms 02' Chevy the seats seem more supportive in the Bravada, and the ride is a little better in the Bravada (I assume the rear air suspension). But I do enjoy driving the Bravada more than the Trailblazer JMO.

Anybody wondering, i'm am not hating on the Trailblazer. Just my personal experience.

Up to date the Bravada is still my favorite (that I have owned)

I like the look of the Bravada and love the blue. How many miles on it? Thats a lot of car for the money.

Those headlights are the perfect shape for a set of projectors and are begging for it. Do a retrofit in them, with HIDs! :biggrin:

129K miles. The TB LS has 139K miles on it. The dealer has agreed on $4500 for the Bravada

Man that's cheap. I know suv's have taken a hit with the complete lack of snow at least here in MN they have. Add on the expensive gas and there's going to be some great deals out there. I'd love a motorcycle if 99% of the people on the road in cars weren't oblivious.

He did all of the negotiating. He said "I have it listed on the website for $4995. I'll let it go for $4500." I didn't have to say a word. It starts right up. Looked it over, decent shape. Typical scratches for a 10 yr old vehicle. I'll fix up the interior console a little bit, just looks a little worn but that's no biggie.

Back in Feb I posted up that I was buying a Bravada. However, the dealer sold it from underneath me right before I was heading down with the cash. Instead, I ended up buying a 2004 Saturn Vue. However, I failed to recognize the Saturn as a FWD not the AWD I thought it was. As a result, I quickly traded that off for this 2002 Trailblazer LTZ:

Well, I left but now I'm back!!! I had a 2002 Blue Trailblazer LS which I sold to my brother back in February, however, I missed having the Trailblazer so I acquired a 2002 Trailblazer LTZ.

However, in the month since I've had it, I've already replaced the transmission, cam positioner sensor, cam actuator solenoid and tail light circuit boards.

I've already done some mods though. I put in some cree LED reverse lights and of course some Supermod upgrades: ported throttle body, supersparkz and tune.

Ouch on the transmission! Other stuff seems "normal" for these trucks and being 10 years old and all.

Makes me wonder if they pulled a fast one on you with the transmission, like it was slipping when traded in and they just dumped a bunch of stuff in it to keep it ticking a little longer...
