The cost of these repairs has came to about $4000. That does not include the standard maintenance like oil, filters, batteries, tires, alignments and rotate and balance of tires and the like. I also think that a new starter is soon to come. I am not complaining. My SS looks like new inside and out. It also runs like new. I did most of these repairs myself. However the a/c repairs, alignments, and tire services had to be done by a repair shop.

The point of this post is just to remind everyone that there is a price to pay to keep your SS like new. They are rare vehicles and should be taken care of. Chevy made 1.6 million Trailblazers. However only 26,000 were the SS model. Enjoy them and take care of them.
