The 2008 Chevrolet TrailBlazer has plentiful interior room, but the dismal look of some interior plastics causes reviewers to take strong notice.
Oddly, this 2008 Chevrolet offers limited seating for its size; Edmunds notices that "there's no way to get a third-row seat, and maximum passenger capacity is down to five." Cars.com reports that "two-row seating is standard...the seats are somewhat firm." The seating arrangement offers "good headroom and legroom, even for taller folks," according to ConsumerGuide, which nonetheless points out that "the seats are too soft for best support, but not uncomfortable...the [second row] split bench seat is comfortable, fairly supportive, and wide enough for three adults with a little squeezing."
TheCarConnection.com notes little to complain about cargo space in the 2008 Chevrolet TrailBlazer. Cars.com reports that "interior space is ample...the backseat folds for additional storage. With the rear seat down, maximum cargo volume measures 80 cubic feet." ConsumerGuide describes the interior as "generous," noting that the "60/40 split 2nd-row seat converts easily, helped by automatic-folding headrests," and "cabin has a good array of pockets and compartments for small items." However, "the tailgate's opening glass sits too high up for easy routine loading/unloading" in the 2008 Chevrolet.
This Chevrolet 2008 model's interior materials leave something to be desired, according to Cars.com, which says that "cabin lacks a quality feel...the interior...place(s) it at the bottom of its class." Edmunds adds that the "quality of the materials and construction has always been suspect." Car and Driver says it has “one of the cheapest-looking interiors in the automotive world.”
Noise levels aboard the Chevrolet 2008 TrailBlazer are acceptable; "engine sound [is] barely discernible (except when pushed really hard), but road noise is also virtually absent," according to Cars.com. ConsumerGuide notes that "tire noise is pleasingly low, but wind rush rises sharply at highway speeds."
The 2008 Chevrolet TrailBlazer is above average in terms of comfort, but the quality feel found in competitors isn’t here.
