I couldn't afford it.
By Rhonda W on


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


I loved this car. It had enough room for my family of 5 plus a little more. In December 2002, the transmission went out for the first of three times. It was under warranty the first time, but not the other two times. The rear air conditioner had problems as well. On two different occasions it had to be repaired. After the third transmission failure in August 2005, I fixed it and traded it. I miss the car, but I had spent over $4,000 in repair and maintenance costs in the 15 mos following the expiration of my warranty. I just couldn't afford it anymore.

Best Features

DVD, auto-on lights, rainsense wipers, fold down seats.

Worst Features

I hope they have worked out the problems in this first EXT version. I wonder if the I6 engine had something to do with the transmission failures.
