2003 Chevrolet TrailBlazer SUV LT 4WD 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

This would have been the perfect SUV for me if not for the mysterious electrical problems they cannot fix. It started to break down less than 3 mos old, and has been in the shop 7 times in 11 months. Problems have involved 4WD transfer control module, A/C, Ignition switch, Rear springs (to fix a frequency rumble/vibration at 55mph), passenger door not closing properly, Radio presets mysteriously disappearing, poor gas mileage, rough transmission shifting; computer updates needed; safety recalls. If you want a sunroof you are forced to purchase OnStar for $900 with $14.95 monthly fee.


Favorite Features

Comfort in both front & rear seats; overall size (not too big, not too small);


Suggested Improvements

Hire some engineers from Japan who can design a quality vehicle that is reliable.

2003 Chevrolet TrailBlazer SUV EXT LT Rwd 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I love my Trailblazer! We had some inconviences in the beginning because of recalls, but it was worth it. Besides, you have to accept that when a new model has just started production.


Favorite Features

Body style, almost looks like a sporty limo


Suggested Improvements

Reconfigure cup holder areas in front

Review

My trailblazer has been an excellent vehicle. Great comfort and ride. Gas mileage could definitely use improvement. Had initial trouble with a faulty fuel injector but once the dealer bit the bullet and repaired on warranty I have had no other performance or reliability problems.


Favorite Features

Great for towing.


Suggested Improvements

Flat deck when rear seats are folded down. Hump causes less ability to haul larger items in rear.

No wonder GM is hurting.

Review

I had owned this truck now for 15 months, bought it used with 73000 miles and very disappointed, just about every little thing that could go wrong with this vehicle has gone wrong. Right down to the cheap plastic features that have cracked on the interior, to the faded plastics on the exterior. The rear light housing on both sides have leaked and are in need of replacement will not pass inspection. In the 15 months my service engine light has come on at least 20 times. On an average it has cost $300 to fix. The gas pedal malfunctioned, thermostat, O2 sensors, TPS went twice, stuck two times in NYC with reduced power. Please be advised to look elsewhere if this is the type of SUV you need.


Favorite Features

Sleek and powerful


Suggested Improvements

Start at the drawing board, think of the consumers who rely on your products and build a quality vehicle again. Place dependable parts in your vehicles. Get away from the thinner plastics because they crack and become extremely annoying.

Review

Best vehicle I have ever owned. Get 15 mpg city and 21 mph highway since the day I bought it. Other than ordinary maintenance, I have spent only $210 on it in 6 years.


Suggested Improvements

Center console awkward to open.
