Yonkers, N.Y. Seriously. I saw two or three of them there today on a trip to the racetrack. Who knew?

I just figured they were all still on the lots with stickers that said, "7,000 off MSRP, but it now!"

Actually, now that you mention it, I don't think I've ever seen one on the road... Probably all the people that voted for Hillary up there in NY bought 'em all up.

I drove the one we have home from Columbus Ohio last week and was VERY suprised with it. Drove 70-80mph all the way for 650 miles. Averaged 20.7 mpg with it. It was very comfortable, handled very well for a suv. (drove to Iowa City in a Ford Exloder) so I could compare the two. I am seriously concidering one with a V-8 to pull my car trailer.

There are a couple that live near my house.

Marty, your experience doesn't surprise me at all. I've rented a lot of TrailBlazers in my time, and got similar mileage at similar speeds out of the 4.2

People give the 9-7x a lot of crap, and it does look too much like its GM siblings, but it handles nice and does the job.

Well that and Saab/GM really did a decent job saab'ifying it, vs. what they did to the 9-2x interior. I find it bizarre that people here think the 9-2x interior is nice. The seats are shit. The "leather" is shit. The carpet has the consistency of the green indoor/outdoor carpet you see in old sunrooms. And the paint on the dash scratches if you look at it sideways.

xEleventy-billion.

There is nothing "premium" about the 9-2x at all. Even by the standards of "entry-level premium."

Yeah we have a few of them floating around Yonkers. How did you like the racetrack? I was there once, lost $10 and left. I hope youre not counting the 9-7x's over in Beck across from the racetrack. I work in Yonkers and live in pissing distance to Yonkers (I said it, all Yonkers is good for is to pee on) so next time let me know if you take a trip down here!
