The TrailBlazer's inline six-cylinder engine struggles noisily as it has to rev to make sufficient power. Handling is very clumsy and the ride, while comfortable at low speeds, is unsettled on the highway. Wind noise is pronounced, fit and finish are unimpressive and the front-seat-mounted safety belts are uncomfortable. Poor fuel economy and crash-test results are also discouraging.

Summary:
General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2006-2007 Buick Rainier, Chevrolet Trailblazer and GMC Envoy vehicles, and 2006 GMC Envoy XL and Chevrolet Trailblazer EXT vehicles. Fluid may enter into the driver's door master power window switch module, causing corrosion that could result in a short in the circuit board, causing window switches to become inoperative.

What should you do:
GM will notify owners, and dealers will install a new driver's door switch module, free of charge. The recall began on November 2, 2015. Owners may contact Buick customer service at 1-800-521-7300, Chevrolet customer service at 1-800-222-1020, and GMC customer service at 1-800-462-8782. GM's number for this recall is 15700.
