2004 Chevrolet TrailBlazer EXT LT 4WD 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

In general, experience has been very
positive. Vehicle is very practical
for a wide range of family needs.
Plenty of room to carry the soccer team
AND equipment. Also like flexibility of
space for vacation needs. Engine
performance is very good - good pickup
and plenty of power to pass on the
highway. eats are very reasy to fold
down and variety of combinations is
nice.


Best Features

Memory seats - very helpful for two very different size drivers who like to set up the vehicle differently.


Worst Features

Needs second row cupholders that can be easily reached by children. Only cupholders in rear seat are at base of console - too far for a small child to reach.

2004 Chevrolet TrailBlazer EXT LS Rwd 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Bought an EXT LS Trailblazer with a V-8
in June 2004. I could not be happier
with the purchase. I never thought I'd
get into a 7 seat SUV for under 30
grand. With Chevy's rebates and
incentives, I was well under 30 grand
including interest on financing. For
the price, Chevrolet comes with the
most standard features of any midsize
SUV. The Trailblazer is better looking
than the Tahoe, and costs a lot less.
I get decent gas mileage (15 MPG) and
the kids love our new vehicle. I can't
wait to take a long road trip. The
standard features alone make the
Explorer look sick. Compare the two
and you will see what I mean.


Best Features

I love the design of this SUV. It is sporty, yet refined. I like it better than the Tahoe. The dual air, alarm system, wireless remote system, voice recorder, stereo, and 17" wheels. The V-8 is powerful and makes me feel like a King on the road.


Worst Features

Chevrolet designed this SUV so the A/C warms up when you park and sit in idle. A/C should be cold all the time. The seating when folded does not create a flat trunk space. It is a wavy floor. The front cup holders are not designed to hold a bottle. Taking a sharp turn spills them.

2004 Chevrolet TrailBlazer EXT LT 4WD 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Great vehicle if you do not want a
Tahoe or Suburban. I bought it because
of the 8cyl engine, the 3rd row seating
and entertainment center not to mention
that a have several local Chevy dealers
but no imports.

8cyl is great for towing. I love the
XM radio that I got 1 year free of


Best Features

8cyl, xm, towing, 3rd row seating


Worst Features

Not much, I don't think alot of people know about the extended version.

2004 Chevrolet TrailBlazer EXT LS 4WD 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Was looking for something that would
handle our growing family. Only have
200 miles on it so far. I'm 6'3" and I
could sit in the back row. Wife loves
it. Got 6k off in incentives, which
made it a reasonable purchase. Had no
problems pulling the pontoon boat. I
can tell it sat on the lot, it has some
cosmetic issues. A gasket on the back
hatch needs to be replaced (covered by
warranty, no prob.). A small tear in
upholstery on the passenger door and
discoloring(?)of the plastic exterior
trim. Don't know if the last two are
going to be issues or not... haven't
spoke to the dealer about them.


Best Features

Dual front and side airbags, want my family to be safe!


Worst Features

Wish I had gotten the DIC (feature allows the vehicle to auto adjust to whichever keyless entry unlocks the doors). The CD that came w/ the truck talked about it and it sounds great if the price is right!

Review

We have three kids and have
historically been a mini-van family.
Well the toddlers have turned into
teens and the space needed to haul all
there stuff has grown. The Trailblazer
is just what we needed. Lots of
comfort and room for the three kids ,
their friends and all their stuff. And
with the 275 horses -- never a concern
with getting up and going on the
highway. We bought the DVD system
which makes longer trips more fun for
all. And for when we are all together,
I bought a Thule roof carrier that
gives us the ability to carry lots and
stay comfortable. The mileage has been
surprisngly good -- not much different
from the vans we had. We love it!


Best Features

275 Horse-Power I-6 with good mileage, third row very roomy, gotta have DVD,wish I had bought the XM Radio -- looks like a cool product.
