Review of the 2002 Chevrolet Blazer

  • The ancient Blazer has effectively been replaced by the all-new, far superior TrailBazer ... and for good reason.

  • Pros

    Wide range of features and options, competent drivetrain.

  • Cons

    Spotty build quality, cheesy interior parts, uncomfortable rear seats.

  • What's New for 2002

    Most new additions for 2002 involve cosmetic enhancements such as new exterior colors and optional sport stripes on the Xtreme model. LS models get a monotone paint scheme along with newly styled wheels.

Love ittttt!

Vehicle: 2002 Chevrolet Blazer LS 4WD 4dr SUV (4.3L 6cyl 4A)

My dad bought me my blazer a few months ago. i LOVE it. it has plenty of room. plenty of power for me. 4x4 works great, just had it down on the beach yesterday. it is the perfect vehicle for me right now. the only thing i hate about it is the gas mileage. it seems like im getting about 7 miles to a gallon..and that's for stop and go, well sorta. i live in the country so there's like 2 stop lights i go through, and most of it's just straight driving. i can make it about 30-35 on a quarter of a tank.




Buyer beware!!!!

Great Truck if you want to drive in first gear only. One month after buying it used the tranny went out, it only had first gear, and I had to replace the tranny. No warranty, $1500.00 out of pocket. Have experienced rectal bleeding from taking up the poop shoot from mechanics. Dealers happy, Banks happy, Mechanics happy, guess who's not happy???




Solid truck

I see everyone's reviews and they just blow my mind. I must have got lucky. My Blazer I bought at 95,000 miles on it. Now it has almost 200,000. I have had to replace the fuel pump twice but that is my fault. I hate pumping gas and push every car I have owned to its limits on an empty tank. Every car I have owned has had to have that replaced other than that just BASIC ware and. Tear the transmission started slipping at 190,000 put some stop slip in and its pushing 200,000. No problem. I'm sure the end to this cars life will come sooner than later but I have been satisfied with this car. I do agree with gas mileage needing improvement though it is a gas hog but it is a SUV so expected.




Xtreme performance

by on
Vehicle: 2002 Chevrolet Blazer Xtreme 2dr 2WD SUV (4.3L 6cyl 5M)

I bought this xTreme used and in need of some TLC. It is now in great condition, has been very reliable, and runs like a wild horse. Handling is far better than the LS Blazer I also own, and fuel economy is a rock solid 22MPG on the highway, and about 15MPG around town. This is definitely not the model for all SUV drivers, but more for those who want some spark to go with towing, handling, and looks. The A/C in this vehicle easily handles 100+ temps and the engine cooling system keeps things at 195d. Easy to work on when needed. Changed a bad alternator in less than 15 minutes with no special tools. Parts are cheap and readily available. Wish I could buy a new one.




Got a very good buy

Vehicle: 2002 Chevrolet Blazer Xtreme 2dr 2WD SUV (4.3L 6cyl 5M)

I just bought my 2002 Blazer Xtreme and I have been very satisfied. This is my first SUV and I know that there are bigger and better ones these days, but for the xtremes purposes it does its job. It has a very stylish look and is very comfortable. It also has a considerable amount of power and I have no problem keeping up with the rest of the traffic. The xtreme is a very hard car to find especially with the lowish miles that I found in this one. If you can get your hands on a decent blazer I would absolutely suggest it.

I just took a long trip in my Blazer(1000 miles). I changed the spark plugs before the trip home. I tracked the fuel economy on the way home and it was about 17-18 on the highway. I used to get 22-...

Just picked up an '02 Xtreme, and there is play in the steering column. Not the linkage down below, definitely in the upper end of the column. I have some older GM books on tilt wheel columns, and ?...
