Review of the 2004 Chevrolet TrailBlazer

  • A strong drivetrain, plenty of room inside and a long features list make this an attractive family vehicle, but the cheap interior materials and iffy handling keep it from gaining our full recommendation.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Strong engine performance, comfortable highway ride, extensive features list, user-friendly controls.

  • Cons

    Skittish handling around corners, numb steering, generic interior design, low-grade interior materials.

  • What's New for 2004

    For 2004, Chevrolet has dropped the high-line LTZ trim level. Power-adjustable pedals, a DVD-based navigation system, automatically locking doors and XM Satellite Radio are new features this year. The instrument panel now sports a freshened monochromatic look. The North Face Edition package gets unique 17-inch wheels, while all models get new 17-inch aluminum wheels.

Not a bad deal

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Chevrolet TrailBlazer LT Rwd 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)

I've had my TB for four months now, and I'm pretty happy with it. I average 13-15 miles in combined city/highway driving. The car drives ok for a truck, but I feel like the handling is very rubbery (compared to my F150). It's more than OK for normal driving, though. And it's spacious enough to handle all my normal cargo for weekend trips and my dog (German Sheppard) has plenty of space in the back. It's a good car, really.




Nice

Pretty good mpg for a V6. But not a lot of go on the road, but more then enought in mud and water. Hugs corners awesome for an suv, and only handles better off road. Very stylish extior and very comfortable interior. Nothing has really gave out on me either, it was a well investment.

Love this vehicle in everyway except have had numerous problems with transmission. Would recommend this vehicle but Chevy needs to improve the transmission design.

This is a good vehicle, overall. I would like to see some of the features on the dash moved just a little, but is otherwise very nice to drive. It's a lot of fun!

I am very satisfied with our vehicle. The torque and horsepower are exceptional. My only complaint is that the new stadium seating concept makes it difficult to see where you are going when backing up.

I use my Trailblazer primarily for my business. It's great driving and easy to get around. I went smaller with the Trailblazer from a Dodge Ram. It's gas intake is easier on the pocketbook.
