Review of the 2002 Chevrolet TrailBlazer

  • Finally, an SUV from GM that can compete with the big boys. Add in some higher-quality interior pieces and a more tightly controlled suspension, and it might even beat some of them.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Class-leading engine power, forgiving ride, room for seven in the EXT version.

  • Cons

    Slow steering, generic interior design, doesn't like to be pushed hard in the corners.

  • What's New for 2002

    This fully redesigned Trailblazer now sports a longer, wider and noticeably stiffer chassis, along with an all-new 4.2-liter inline six-cylinder engine and a more refined suspension that is light years ahead of its predecessor, the Blazer. Unique sheet metal now differentiates the Trailblazer from its GM cousins, the GMC Envoy and Oldsmobile Bravada, while a restyled interior makes better use of the additional passenger room inside.

Best vehicle Ive ever owned

Vehicle: 2002 Chevrolet TrailBlazer LT 4WD 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)

This truck has been nothing but trouble from day 1. Trans blew at 3000 miles and brought it back under lemon law. I got a new one. Had transmission problems again and it blew at 48000 miles chevy didn't replace it because it was over 5 years. (I didn't drive it much)so that cost me 3 grand. The entire rear differential broke at 81000 miles (another 3k invested) and the trans module that controls the 4WD broke at 82000. Its horrible on gas. (says 18/21 i get about 13/15 when I drive well) The power isn't bad but for 36000$ new it was a complete rip off. Its comfortable to drive but I would never consider owning one again. And the seatbelts are so uncomfortable.




They hold up well

I've had some problems here and there with the 4-wheel drive and the gas mileage is ok. but They hold up really well in a rollover accident. i lost control of mine and it rolled and it just shoved in the rear driver corner of the roof.

Once you get past the fact that you will only get a max of 16 miles per gallon you'll love this truck. It's got plenty and good pick up for the size of the SUV. This was my first SUV purchase after driving only little sports cars and i'm not sure if I can switch back.

Just ok

Vehicle: 2002 Chevrolet TrailBlazer LT 4WD 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)

This truck has had its ups and downs. Just when you think it's all OK, somthing else is just not working right. I like the truck, and have hauled a lot of stuff in it, but it just can't pass up a dealer. I think it likes to have people looking under its hood.

The TrailBlazer has an excellent ride going long distances. The exterior is excellent from a quality standpoint. You can see where they cut corners on the interior. The plastic that protects the odometer cracked from wear and tear and you have to press a button 4 times to turn the lights off during day riding. But, the car for the most part is dependable and is terrific in the snow. It has excellent pickup and smooth acceleration. I like the aggressive front as well. I would recommend it and by another one
