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


Review

It's been a great car for towing utility trailer, but just ok for 4000 lb boat. Had a great time on 4wd trails in co. Great family vacation mobile too!

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


Review

Good SUV. Not too big, not too small. The EXT has room for my family of 5 and our stuff. Fold down seats leave plenty of space to haul things. The 4.2L engine is great. Lots of power. Have had lots of brake problems, and what I suspect may be a transmission problem at around 60,000. The LT package is great.


Best Features

4.2L engine performance, heated leather seats, smooth ride, plenty of space for family of 5. Also like the steering wheel controls and separate climate controls for the driver, passenger and kids in the back.


Worst Features

Continually having brake problems, cup holders need to be bigger and back from radio and shifter.

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


Review

Purchaced for my wife. Gas mileage for this type of vehicle is not bad, she gets about 18.5 average, high 20.5 low 16.9. The ride and power for this SUV is great. We would recommend this to others comfortable, easy to see out of. Gives one a secure feeling. We tried out many different vehicles in this class and this was best in our opinion.


Best Features

Seating is comfortable, interior is laid out well, ride comfort, power for the 6 cyl is solid, visibility is excellent.


Worst Features

Improve gas mileage, with better air delivery and better exhaust.

Review

Battery failed in 1st year. Buttons peeling on Premium Bose Stereo. Wind Noise is very bad. Had to install custom deflectors but still have noise. STARTING PROBLEMS**** - Multiple occurrences. Late 2005 and late 2007 - still continuing. Dealer replaced a bunch of stuff in 2005 which did not solve the problem. Finally replaced ignition switch which solved the problem. New ignition problem - not starting in late 2007. Replaced ignition switch but the problem is still occurring. VERY UNRELIABLE. Transmission shifts hard but has not failed yet.


Worst Features

GM Chevrolet needs to recall these vehicles and fix the ignition problems. These problems are well documented on the web.

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


Review

No problems with the motor, was made by Izusu for Chevrolet, towed boats and trailers without any problems. However have experienced numerous mechanical, structural and rear lights problems, all cover by warranty (bought extended to 6 years or 60,000 miles), the dealer had to supply rental cars while it was in repairs.


Best Features

275 horsepower, one of the most powerful engines for a midsize SUV. The OnStar system is great and provides emergency and safety mesuares that protects the passengers. Vehicle handles well when crossing areas that are flooded.


Worst Features

Improve quality control when assembling this vehicle.
