    Try to get windshield wiper motor.

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Camouflage Peacock says:

    I would have definitely taken it out on the road!

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars The infamous Pj says:

    Modern challengers have those type of door lock mechanisms but then again like you said they wanted that retro vibe .

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars James D says:

    There's a reason those SSRs failed after all, thing might as well be a Pontiac for all the nonsense.

    Those power window switches are from the Jimmy/Blazer fyi.

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Aaron Burson says:

    one fugly car, NOT truck.

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Gaz Pursell says:

    As someone who lives in the UK, I've never seen one. What are they like to drive, etc?

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars randy beard says:

    I kind of like the Look but I am a Chevy Man…

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dry Toast says:

    what an odd thing hmmm

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars freak3dot says:

    Wait. It really is just blue water?

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Chad Cove says:

    What the hell is that kind of washer fluid lol water and what

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Chad Cove says:

    Gmc envoy 4.2L inline 6 has same oil pan for front diff

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Wayne Jeffrey says:

    Why would GM build such an abomination when they could have just imported the Australian built Holden Ute in left hand drive with a “region friendly” body styling kit!

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars dksob81 says:

    That would be from the Reineer,/Trailblazer/Envoy 4.2L straight 6, all had that oil pan for the front axle to go through.

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ain't no rest for the triggered says:

    This thing is a trailblazer underneath don't drive this thing like it is a sports car the parts don't hold up to hard cornering they tend to break or wear rather quickly for the mass of the vehicle.

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Donna Hollingsworth says:

    Sounds like a AMC. GM made style.

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars AlienSoundDigital says:

    Good days of locking your keys in the car and using a coat hangar to open the door again.

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars SLVRFOX88 says:

    SSR is ok if you get the last year

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Corey Kolenda says:

    Do you ever pre fill the filters when the flange is horizontal?

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Chee- Rex says:

    Hey the Volvo s60 early 2000s has that kind of door lock, I didn't realize it was rare by that point

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars dəplôrəbəl says:

    Goofy motors parts bin car; oddly I’ve always wanted one
    😳

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars A Good Neighbor Auto repair 2 says:

    Nice,I love the Yellow one and red..blessings

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars jorge fernandez says:

    Those were some ugly welds on the frame. Damn! That engine is crammed in there wow!

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jim HVAC says:

    Chevy trailblazer frame

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Donald Ross says:

    I was working in the dealership when they rolled out. First test drive not very impressed. Poor ride and handling. It is a Trailblazer that has been shorten, you are correct. When you pull the outside door handle both windows "index" to clear upper seals so you will not break the glass. GM had a bunch of the modules go bad causing those vehicle to be parked until available? If the ride and handling would have been better I would have bought one..Good job, Don

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Hola! Old Bum On A Bike says:

    Here in Australia the concept is very popular. They are called utes here. Primarily by Holden (GM) and Ford.

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Werner Danler says:

    That thing definitely wins the UGLY award along with that Chrysler wagon thing. Can't think of the name.

    No tap water in the windscreen washer. The minerals will plug up the washer nozzles.

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ynnel?! says:

    I really don't hate the SSR, they did better on the retro styling than Chrysler did on the PT Cruiser, imo.

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mizzy4106 says:

    Ford is literally notorious for trying to reinvent the wheel every year and make it every shape but round

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mizzy4106 says:

    Rather just get a trailblazer SS it looks better

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mizzy4106 says:

    It's a envoy/trailblazer platform I think gmt 360

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars hipidydipidy says:

    what is the windshield washer mix you usually use for florida??

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Blake Enloe says:

    the cool thing about f-150s is that they can fit 35 inch tires from the factory without rubbing the wheel well or liner. That's the reason why they use circles around circles.

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars 74429dozer says:

    Do you have to use brake cleaner? Do you get charged per can?
    We use refillable spray bottles in the aviation industry.

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Nick Caputo says:

    I had one. And I rebuilt the whole thing and it was nice. Fun ti drive. And sold for alot and 6 months after I sold it the guy totalled it

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Brandon S says:

    These were and continue to be one of the ugliest car ever made.

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Riteous Right Hand says:

    I think if Chevy had gone with the LS2 from the jump, it would have been a more successful platform.

    Definitely more fun, with the 6.0.

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Sir T¡nfo¡l says:

    4.8 ? 5.3? who really knows

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Matthew S says:

    I thought these were cool. Everybody else hated them. I saw the first one doing hot weather testing when I was at the grand canyon. It had no badges and my dad, my son and I gawked untill the gm employee got in and drove off quickly.

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars superdivemaster says:

    Nice Truck … Nice Video …

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ArEj911 says:

    Last guy in there over torqued the drain bolt and left the filter loose, ok very good. Love what you do ray im from the north with lots of salt it’s really satisfying for me to see these cars and that frame shorten gm did I guess was pretty detrimental to these especially in the north we have non of them left!

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mike Stewart says:

    Now that is one ugly frankenstein motor

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars David Ewers Photography says:

    the worst truck ever produced by an american company

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mussa says:

    Ugliest vehicle I have ever seen. Imagine the amount of crack the executives were on to approve this design!! I would rather walk..

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bradley Wise says:

    This guy has obviously never seen a 1954 chevy truck,or he would understand the rounded styling and the rounded wheel wells

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jonathan Williams says:

    Love your videos and content, as a former repair tech it's nice to hear from a technician and not a parts slinger. However the front suspension is a double a-arm with a coil over shock absorber, not a McPherson strut as you said.

  46. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars JimR says:

    What shitty design by GM. My Hyundai is better designed than that and GM doesn't even consider them a real car company…

  47. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars K. Kristian Jonsson says:

    No! It's a silly model!

  48. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert Texas says:

    And yes we have told them that the filter was found to be less then hand tight

  49. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert Texas says:

    The quick oil change places don’t tighten oil filters any more . I’ve had to tighten my wife’s Buick Enclave every time she gets her oil changed . It’s lack of training
