The Chevrolet Trailblazer SS is a bit of a cult classic these days. With a 6.0-liter LS2 V8 engine and substantial upgrades to intake, exhaust and suspension, they are special SUVs, no doubt.
Thieves know this quite well and thefts continue to be a problem in the Detroit area. Not one, not two, but five Trailblazer SS SUVs have been stolen in the past few weeks, and owners are hoping police ramp up their efforts to bust the theft ring, according to Click On Detroit.
“I went all the way to Chicago to get my second one, just to get it stolen here in Detroit,” one owner said. “I decided to go outside to check and my truck was gone. No glass, no nothing.”
“It’s pretty much my toy now, and it goes in the garage and pretty much doesn’t stay out of my sight otherwise,” another owner said. The local news affiliate is protecting the identity of the owners to ensure their SUVs remain safe.
Any tips to help identify the thieves or the cars can be reported to Michigan’s auto theft hotline: 800-242-HEAT.
