Review of the 2003 Chevrolet Blazer

  • If people keep buying them, Chevy will keep making them. We, however, suggest standing clear and going with the far superior TrailBlazer instead.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Wide range of features and options, competent drivetrain, cheap price.

  • Cons

    Spotty build quality, cheesy interior parts, uncomfortable rear seats, poor resale value.

  • What's New for 2003

    The Blazer gets only a few minor changes for 2003. A new fuel-injection system helps smooth out the aging 4.3-liter V6 while the interior get refreshed with new seat fabrics. Two-door models are now available in a bright yellow exterior color while the Xtreme model gets new quarter-panel graphics.

I love my 2003 blazer

by on
Vehicle: 2003 Chevrolet Blazer LS 4WD 2dr SUV (4.3L 6cyl 5M)

Wow I was really shocked at some of the comments I've seen on here. First off I really believe that the way a truck works depends on how you drive it and maintain it! I am not saying that the people aren't taking care of it but the owners beforehand didn't. As for the worst gas milage I did agree untill I changed my fuel pump omg It saved me a lot of money and I didn't even change it because it was broke! If you drive like an idiot and go 55mph from stop sign to stop sign you will waste so much gas in anything. I go out the mountain every weekend and I have and always will buy Chevy's! The one and only thing I hate is changing the spark plugs because it is soooo tight in there!




Tough look

Vehicle: 2003 Chevrolet Blazer LS 4WD 2dr SUV (4.3L 6cyl 5M)

Bought this ZR2 4X4 used (3600mi) because it appeared to be set up to handle back country (skid plates, big tires, upgraded shocks, etc) and offered more room and comfort than CJ style Jeep. Mine is yellow like the picture and has most options. Have had no problems (except a little oil drip) now at 24000mi. Just figured out it has grease fittings on stearing linkage! It is not as tight as my 98 Ford F150. Has performed well in rough conditions. Gas milage never over 20mpg. Tire on back contributes to already dangerous rear vision limits. Back seat entry difficult. Filling gas tank to top needs slow pump speed. Overall I like this vehicle for the Rocky Mountain area where I live.

Solid truck suv

by on
Vehicle: 2003 Chevrolet Blazer LS 4WD 2dr SUV (4.3L 6cyl 5M)

I've owned my Blazer for just over a year and put 12,000 miles on it, no real complaints thus far. It actually rides quite nice considering the old chasis, and the cabin is very quiet on the highway. If you buy one, accept that you are buying a truck, not a Rav4 or CRV. The good news is it can handle truck-type work and moderate off-roading without a problem. I have a rare 5 speed model, my only complaint that it tends to grind 2nd until the fluid has warmed up. I've also had it leak water twice on me - I chalked it up to not closing the sunroof the first time, but if it happens again its going to the dealer.




Zr2 - worth far more

by on
Vehicle: 2003 Chevrolet Blazer LS 4WD 2dr SUV (4.3L 6cyl 5M)

I have an 03 Blazer ZR2 that I bought new a year and a half ago now, with just under 15k miles on it. I haven't had a single thing wrong with it other than a simple fix for the sunroof. The engine has great torque, and while it could use some more horsepower, that's not what this vehicle was intended for.




Stay away

Vehicle: 2003 Chevrolet Blazer LS 4WD 2dr SUV (4.3L 6cyl 5M)

This vehicle looks great inside and out but doesn't perform as great. I have had leaking windows in both quarter panel windows and the windshield above the rear view mirror. Supposedly they fixed it but the day after I took it home it was leaking again. It's still under warranty but being in the shop twice in one week is very inconvenient. Gas mileage is bad and ball joints are bad already after a year. This vehicle is overpriced




Great vehicle for the money!

Vehicle: 2003 Chevrolet Blazer LS 4WD 2dr SUV (4.3L 6cyl 5M)

So far this has been a great vehicle to own! Minor annoyances like chipping paint on the radio, and a piece of molding above the windshield flying off. I have not yet had a mechanical problem with this vehicle at all!
