2002 Chevrolet TrailBlazer SUV LS 4WD 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Luv It! Great so far! Luv the smooth
ride & quiet engine (except when
cold). Have had 3 weeks - Bought as
used vehicle - got a good deal! First
tank poor mileage - 11 mpg which
depressed me, but noticed all tires
were low (24 lbs) - After proper
inflation (32 lbs) 14 mpg/city, 21.5
hwy. (Check your tires) Didn't have use
for 4W, but glad I have it -Need place
to use 4W once a month to keep seals
from drying, I'm told!


Best Features

Very smooth ride, powerful engine, beautiful appearance, sets up high, stereo functions and sound.


Worst Features

Clips to adjust driver seatbelt placement (rubs my neck). More comfortable steering wheel. Cassette and CD - Standard. More storage up front.

Review

We love our Trailblazer, but was
wondering if anyone else has had
transmission problems? We've already
had to have sensor replaced to shift
from first to second and now it seems
to be having a problem again.
Everything else is superb!


Best Features

Exterior appearance!

2002 Chevrolet TrailBlazer SUV LTZ 2WD 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Sharp looking vehicle; good fuel
economy for an SUV; handles well;
However, lots of repairs, rattles and
noises.

Overall, it has all of the parts of the
puzzle. It just wasn't put together
well. Disappointing!! Selling it ASAP.


Best Features

Good design, but too close in cost to the Tahoe which is twice the vehicle; both in quality and performance.


Worst Features

Better quality. Work out the bugs. Make it more durable.

Review

This truck was purchased at the very
end of 2001 so has now been through
two Michigan winters. After only 18mos
of ownership, RUST has developed along
all of the doors lower, inner edge
seams and along the inner underside of
the hood. Rust is the equivalent of
cancer in a car, almost impossible to
stop once it has gotten a start. In
this day & age, there is no excuse for
this lapse in quality. My opinion has
gone from one of joy to despair as
this truck is not going to last as
long as I had hoped...just more money
wasted. Too bad, as this truck has
been mechanically trouble free.


Best Features

Smooth, quiet ride. Strong engine and decent gas mileage for a vehicle this size and weight, enhanced perhaps by my use of synthetic oil.


Worst Features

Number of electrical quirks noted which need to be eliminated. Better lateral support in the front seats. Improved corrosion resistance.

Review

At 35,000 miles I lost reverse, second
and my overdrive gears. The GM
technician commented that there were
problems like mine in the GM trucks
that have identical transmissions. At
74,000 miles it fails again. Now here I
sit, thinking GM will stand behind
their product. WRONG!!! I asked GM if
they are able to build a transmission
that could last more than 35,000
miles...they laughed at me.
I work for Goodyear/Gemini and you only
have one shot with your customer. GM
blew it!!! I would never treat my
customers this way if I knew they felt
uncomfortable with any product or
service that I sold. BUY TOYOTA!!! Your
best deal is great service, not a great
price.


Best Features

Onstar. Helped my wife in a tornado. Thank you Onstar.


Worst Features

Use a Toyota transmission.
