Yes used car values are high but I must say $6500 more than what you paid in May of 2020 is shocking. Who in their right mind would pay such a price, especially on a private sale and not at a dealer. For example I bought my 2022 RS in August and paid sticker. Not a penny more. But you found someone willing to pay $6500 MORE than a sticker price. I looked locally at dealers and found some 2021 TB, such as an LT with 3410 miles asking 29,477. An RS with 5868 miles for $34477. An Activ with 8800 miles for 32000. Another RS (didn't say milage) for 32,000. All more than I paid in August for a brand new 2022 RS. Now new TB's are hard to come buy, but it is getting a bit better. But I looked on these same dealers that had the used TB's and they had a good selection of Chevy Equinox. You can get a nice Equinox LT, brand new, for about the same or even a couple of hundred less than they are asking for the 2021 Used TB's.After owning our 2021 Trailblazer since May of 2020 we decided to sell based on the amount being offered vs how much we paid. For us it was a $6500 difference so it just made sense especially considering we haven't been driving it much since covid lifestyle took over.
Another reason for selling is due to the C8 we have on order. The extra money plus one less car payment helps alot.
I can honestly say our Trailblazer was always reliable and never needed to be taken in for any type of warranty work, even the plastic jack recall, lol. After almost 2 years of ownership my only complaints are the seats are too narrow and short and my leg hits the console when driving, but that might be due to my height at 6'3". I also didn't like how flimsy thin the hood was even though I never had problems with it. Other than these shortcomings it did everything else we needed, so I would say it was a good vehicle and wouldn't hesitate to recommend one. 👍 My only concern if there is one would be long term reliability as they age.
I'll stick around and help as I can. I'm on several forums with cars/trucks I don't own anymore just for fun and I'm a car nut anyways. 🤪
I'll also have some stuff for sale soon. Everything is low mileage and in good condition. I'll post the stuff soon in the for sale section.
