for the wife her car is pretty much done. what should be a simple fix on my truck is a hell of a job on her car. its leaking coolant at a rapid rate from the inlet n outlet on the engine, it probably only needs a cheap gasket but requires a hell of a lot of work to get to it. but besides that im sure its burning coolant as well. shes done. 2002 Sebring. so anyways on to better things... we have 6 kids and she wants a vehicle to be able to carry them all. so heres where were at. Chevy Trailblazer EXT, GMC Envoy EXT, Buick Rendezvous, Pontiac Torrent and I think missing another one. I would rather not get another Burb, Yukon or Tahoe but those are not out of the question and as much as I like the 5.7L Vortec and the 97, 98 & 99 model years we need someting a bit more fuel efficient, one gas guzzler is enough. there are a tonne of trailblazers n envoys out there and that is what were leaning towards. a lot of them have the award winning vortec inline 6 which I know almost nothing about other than its supposed to be a good engine. however its short lived production life prolly dosent leave a whole lot of parts laying around in junkyards for future repairs and is probably expensive as hell to fix (maybe I'm wrong?) . but how reliable is it? sooo hmmm my conundrum.... whats the best vehicle above, how reliable are they and how long will they last? Iv seen em as low as 160000 km and over half a million. so they gotta go the distance right? we definitely dont want anything with AFM and since were on a tight budget we cant afford them anyways. So 2006 and below... any advice is more than appreciated in making our decision an easier one. THANKS GUYS!
