A mid-size SUV produced by General Motors Chevrolet for almost 7 years from 2001 to 2008. Despite its considerable age, even today in the secondary market you can find cars of this model in very good condition. Under the hood of the SUV is a 4.2-liter naturally aspirated engine with a power of 273 hp. Gearbox – 4-speed “automatic”. Admittedly, the Trailblazer’s transmission is quite archaic. But it has a good resource.
Particular attention in the car require axles in all-wheel drive, ball bearings and suspension elements. All of the above should be changed every 60-80 thousand kilometers. Wheel bearings also require regular replacement. The Trailblazer motor is prone to overheating, so don’t forget to keep an eye on the condition of the cooling system. Ignition coils and motor mounts also require increased attention. The transmission, due to its archaism, quietly serves 100 or more thousand kilometers.
In the early 2000s, the SX4 was able to make a mark on the market and earn a lot of positive reviews from both motorists and experts. However, in just a few years, this Japanese car was almost completely forgotten … This is largely due to the fact that the SX4 is still unnecessarily modest for its money. And yet there is something to fall in love with this Suzuki car. High ground clearance, automatic all-wheel drive, low weight, good design of the body and headlights. All this makes the SX4 a good all-rounder for both city and country trips. The car has good stability and handling. From the point of view of the design of the car, it is very simple and unpretentious. In any case, if we are talking about a model after restyling with a 1.6-liter engine. Separately, you can praise a large mechanical gearbox.
Someone will say that the Mazda 6 is, to put it mildly, not a popular car. And this will be true, but only in part. For some reason, many motorists forget about the existence of the “six”. Most often in the domestic market there is a model with a 1.8-liter 120-horsepower engine. With due skill, the buyer will even be able to find a car that is not “hackneyed”. The Japanese sedan stands out with a reliable engine and transmission. And yet, the clutch in the Mazda 6 should be changed every 100-130 thousand kilometers. Great attention must be paid to bearings. With proper care, this car will last all 600 thousand kilometers without the need for major repairs.
