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


Review

Sharp looking vehicle; good fuel
economy for an SUV; handles well;
However, lots of repairs, rattles and
noises.

Overall, it has all of the parts of the
puzzle. It just wasn't put together
well. Disappointing!! Selling it ASAP.


Best Features

Good design, but too close in cost to the Tahoe which is twice the vehicle; both in quality and performance.


Worst Features

Better quality. Work out the bugs. Make it more durable.

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


Review

This truck was purchased at the very
end of 2001 so has now been through
two Michigan winters. After only 18mos
of ownership, RUST has developed along
all of the doors lower, inner edge
seams and along the inner underside of
the hood. Rust is the equivalent of
cancer in a car, almost impossible to
stop once it has gotten a start. In
this day & age, there is no excuse for
this lapse in quality. My opinion has
gone from one of joy to despair as
this truck is not going to last as
long as I had hoped...just more money
wasted. Too bad, as this truck has
been mechanically trouble free.


Best Features

Smooth, quiet ride. Strong engine and decent gas mileage for a vehicle this size and weight, enhanced perhaps by my use of synthetic oil.


Worst Features

Number of electrical quirks noted which need to be eliminated. Better lateral support in the front seats. Improved corrosion resistance.

Review

At 35,000 miles I lost reverse, second
and my overdrive gears. The GM
technician commented that there were
problems like mine in the GM trucks
that have identical transmissions. At
74,000 miles it fails again. Now here I
sit, thinking GM will stand behind
their product. WRONG!!! I asked GM if
they are able to build a transmission
that could last more than 35,000
miles...they laughed at me.
I work for Goodyear/Gemini and you only
have one shot with your customer. GM
blew it!!! I would never treat my
customers this way if I knew they felt
uncomfortable with any product or
service that I sold. BUY TOYOTA!!! Your
best deal is great service, not a great
price.


Best Features

Onstar. Helped my wife in a tornado. Thank you Onstar.


Worst Features

Use a Toyota transmission.

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.


Best Features

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


Worst Features

Gas mileage sucks. AC fans are noisey.

2002 Chevrolet TrailBlazer SUV 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 !


Best Features

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


Worst Features

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.
