2002 Chevrolet TrailBlazer LS 2WD 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I just got one used, the 2002 LS, so its a year old. Only problem so far is that on a cold morning, if I don't let it warm up enough, the tranny sounds like its racing even at 2500 rpms, and there's no power to the car, it just crawls. If I stop and give it a minute, the problem stops. Could be an exhaust problem, a misfiring piston, transmission, or I dunno what else. It's only happened 3 times, all on a cold morning. But its not even winter yet.


Favorite Features

Auto Volume on stereo compensates voume when you accelerate/decelerate. Great at toll booths.


Suggested Improvements

Gas mileage sucks. AC fans are noisey.

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


Review

This truck is great if you can't afford one of the other big SUV's like a Tahoe or Etc... . I got mine for a great deal so I was please with the price. I only had the truck for 4 months but so far no problems !


Favorite Features

I like when the other regular Blazer owners stare or ask questions.


Suggested Improvements

Well I did my first oil change with Mobil 1 synthetic oil. Doing a oil change is tricky the first time because you have to remove this plate to get to the oil drain plug and filter other than smooth sailing.

2002 Chevrolet TrailBlazer EXT LT 2WD 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

This inline six should get much better gas mileage. With all city driving I am lucky to get 12 mpg. Very disapointing!


Favorite Features

I really like the seven-seat arrangement and the powerful engine.


Suggested Improvements

improve gas mileage.

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


Review

I traded in my EB Explorer because it was literally falling apart after 85,000 miles. I looked at SUV's for several weeks to make sure I was getting the best price for what I wanted. I looked at Jeeps, Honda, Toyota, etc(sorry, no Fords). When I saw the Trailblazer EXT LT with all the upgrades and price, I new I had found the right SUV. It rides like a dream, great power equipment and ALL the bells and wistles found in a 40K+ SUV. The stereo is amazing and the ride is superb. I am averaging almost 18 MPG on the HWY, hope to get better, but it is a bigger SUV.


Favorite Features

Stereo, power group.


Suggested Improvements

Great SUV.

2002 Chevrolet TrailBlazer LS 2WD 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Not only have I had this car in for service at least 10 times, I lost a ton of money in its resale value. The build quality is terrible, half the problems I have had were deemed as "could not duplicate" by the dealership and went unfixed. Now, I am trying to unload this hunk of junk and getting hosed by the resale. This is the fourth Chevy in a row I have owned that has NOT performed well, you would think I would have learned my lesson by now.... Don't make the same mistake I made!!!


Favorite Features

It has some pep and the sound system isn't too bad.


Suggested Improvements

It needs a complete overhaul.
