I have made one post, posted in a second thread, and no one has even responded. Not even someone telling me I'm number 1 馃枙. I'm sure someone will salute me now, but I'm really on here to gain some knowledge about my '04 Envoy.

There aren't a lot of us here but there are enough to get answers in a day or so if you have a problem we can solve. But we don't usually respond to questions by noobies posted as replies to threads that were last viewed several years ago.

So I went back and replied to your brake question. Looks like you haven't read a lot of posts because we always want to know what codes you are getting. Posts like "I have a problem. What is wrong?" don't unusually get much of a response except for requesting more easily provided information.

Al - thanks for responding! I may be a noobie, but I've read tons of threads, however there's 10's of thousands to sift through and I landed on an lengthy thread about brake light/ electrical issue, and even though it is years old, the person who last posted (years ago) never got a response. The subsequent responses were what I was looking for. As you say there's lots of info in other threads, and I should read them, well I did and the one that sounds like it is on the right path, dried up with lack of response and participation. As all would agree, I don't want to start another thread discussing the same thing as someone else has already addressed.

Our old Trailblazers are hitting the scrap heap

I have made one post, posted in a second thread, and no one has even responded. Not even someone telling me I'm number 1 馃枙. I'm sure someone will salute me now, but I'm really on here to gain some knowledge about my '04 Envoy.
Maybe many of the members' Trailblazers are no longer in use. There are no current comparable new vehicles available. That's why I still have mine, but then I also have a 1971 Charger Super Bee. With 149K on my 2007 Trailblazer, I would imagine that I too will have to settle for something else for my daily driver. I custom ordered my Trailblazer in late 2006. Looking now, there is nothing I could order now that has all of its' capabilities. Are we the only ones who actually use our SUVs to tow, off-road, and highway drive? Probably so, as the auto-manufactures are not looking to produce 4 door enclosed SUVs any more. May have to settle for a 4 door 4WD pickup and put a cap on it. My daily drives have always been GM products. Their pickups are now rated number 2 behind the F-150. We'll see, anyway, you're not alone. And I did post yesterday too.

Here in Indiana, there's tons of Envoys and Trailblazers on the road! I love my Envoy. There was one winter years ago where we had alot of snow, so much that they shut down the city of Indianapolis and didn't allow people to travel, and I was out in the hazardous environment. For the next several days, I literally pulled a Ford, Dodge, and Chevy truck out of the snow from slide off in the snow. Of course I saw Toyotas, Mitsubishis, Lexus, Nissans, and Hondas off the road, but I rolled down my window and told them they shouldn't have bought Jap Crap. The off road capabilities are great for here in the Midwest, not sure if how it would do in mountains or canyons, but that's not an issue I have to deal with.

My Envoy is really a great vehicle, and I hope to hold on to her for years to come. I hope my boys get a chance to drive it. It's comical how my 15 year old GMC is holding up better than my oldest son's Honda whatever SUV. He tells his mom, she should trade in her Japmobile and get an Envoy! 馃憡

Other than the electrical stuff going haywire and rust from the Indiana winter's, no issues! I'm seriously considering buying another one from Arizona and keeping it in the garage for the winters.

Long Island NY here. Plenty of snow too. Our driveway is 300' long and at a 40 degree incline up from the street. I don't snow blow unless we get more than 4 inches. Wife's 2013 RAV4 4WD and son's 2004 F-150 STX (off road edition) have no issues with traction. I did order my 2007 Trailblazer with a locking rear and the 18" chrome rims which are 1" WIDER than standard 17". Also with skid plates and recovery hooks. This was set up for traction in the sand, the more meat in the sand the less you sink in. I'm happy with it all except the recovery hooks. They're located in very small openings in the lower front bumper. Making them totally inaccessible. I refer to them as "Tits on a Bull", useless. And instead have to use my trailer hitch for recovery use. Luckily, I have been the one to recover others.

I'm here and I'm posting in random old threads for the hell of it... Call it being a posting-slut! I am going for the post awards! Besides, I may have insight on some of the older posts and some nitwit like me may come across the old posts with new information.

You're welcome.

The whole tone of this thread is odd. Most people end up on a specific vehicle forum because they either just bought one or they have had one but are having a problem with it.
Other forums I go to have a lot more participation and the youngest vehicle one is a vehicle that was created in 1997, not that much older than TB's and Envoys.

On other forums I frequent, we discuss problems, features, wants, likes and dislikes and go off topic in almost every thread and talk about whatever floats our boat, share a lot of past info and life experiences.

It seems the internet was easier to find repair info up until about 2014 or so. Now it is full of crappy youtube videos and lacks good sources of info from multiple sources and people.
