2003 Chevrolet Blazer SUV LS 4WD 4dr SUV (4.3L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I've got about 45,000 on this SUV with no problems. It's the most functional vehicle I've ever owned. The interior is not trendy but very driver-friendly. The size is great, not as big as my wife's new Trailblazer, but big enough to seat 4 with ease with plenty of cargo room. The truck frame and engine, the Vortec, make it less refined but more durable than many of the newer SUVs. It's great in the snow, and there's enough muscle in the engine to handle passing on the interstate. I've been thinking of trading it in on a newer SUV, but it's hard to find anything I like better. I also like the styling, it's big but not imposing.


Best Features

The instrument cluster, ease of shifting, sound system, and handling in snow.


Worst Features

Bring back an updated Blazer.

2003 Chevrolet Blazer SUV LS 4WD 4dr SUV (4.3L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Bought used with 32k miles. In stock configuration it is a dog. After installing new exhaust, cold air intake and using a Hypertech programmer, it runs much better. Quite a bit of body flex when offroad on moderate to easy 4x4 trails. Decent clearance. Limited modification potential due to offset of wheels. Very comfortable on and off road ride.


Best Features

Very reliable. Electronic 4x4 is excellent. Strong, reliable engine.


Worst Features

Moot, no longer manufactured.

Review

This is the first Blazer I ever owned, however I've been around numerous Blazers throughout my life, and they really are good solid SUV's. I do agree that ever since the Trailblazer came along the Blazer is not respected the way it was back in the day, and it still should be. The engine and drivetrain are tough and were tuned for truck work. If you are looking for a reliable, dependable, solid, smooth running vehicle that has 4-wheel drive with a low price, the Blazer deserves a test drive. I probably would have purchased the Trailblazer since it is a bigger vehicle, however I don't care for the Vortec 4200 aluminum inline-6 as I feel that it will not hold up as good over time as the 4.3 does


Best Features

First,the Vortec 4300 is a great, solid, durable, and reliable motor. It is nice to have a motor that has an iron block, and heads instead of the new Vortec 4200 all aluminum crap. The pickup is nice, rides smoothly, gas mileage is decent, and 4-wheel drive in the winter is a real plus.


Worst Features

It would be nice if Chevy added more standard features to the Blazer trims. Such as standard power front seats, keyless entry etc. It seems that once 2002 Blazers came around the extra option availability decreased, due to the Trailblazer coming into the picture.
