2003 Chevrolet TrailBlazer LS Rwd 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Handles very well.Plenty of power,
especially to pass or merge in heavy
traffic. Quiet smooth ride that is very
enjoyable. Altogether fun to drive.


Best Features

4.2 liter v-6 has much more power and acceleration than expected. No problems with passing, merging or towing.

2003 Chevrolet TrailBlazer LTZ 4WD 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I purchased this vehicle on
7/26/2003 & it really surprised me at
the quality of ride & handling. The 4
valve per cylinder, 10:1 compression
ratio gives this 4.2 litre a whopping
275 horsepower, not bad at all for a
straight 6, & performs quite well
considering the 4,616 lbs. that it is
pulling. You can run 87 octane fuel,
but I use 93 octane due to the
compression & there is more performance
& better gas mileage too. The only one
thing I wished was that GM made the 5.3
litre V-8 available in the non extended
models. I do love performance!


Best Features

I do like this vehicle with its limited slip differential & 3.73:1 axle ratio, the sound system, & especially the driver info center.


Worst Features

I really cannot think of any right off the bat, as I really do enjoy this vehicle, almost as much as I do my 2002 Z06 Corvette. That car is a blast no matter how you look at it, but then to compare it to a Trailblazer is like apples to oranges.

2003 Chevrolet TrailBlazer EXT LT 4WD 4dr SUV (4.2L 6cyl 4A)


Review

This is my first SUV, I have owned 4WD
cars before and luxury cars. Now I have
the best of both worlds. Its awesome to
drive, rides as smooth as a Caddy and
had amazing off road capabilties. The
access to the third seat is awesome,
even easy then the Tahoe and with
plenty of cargo space.

Review

This is one of the best SUVs I have
owned. I have had 1999 Ford Explorer
which I hated and 1997 Ford Expedition,
wich other than the cheap seating and
terrible gas mileage was a nice
vehicle. I had a 96, 97, 99, and 2000
Chevey Tahoe. They were all great
vehicles except for the 2000 with the
full time 4 wheel drive that sucked gas
like a pig. They were the most
comfortable vehicles I have owned, but
this new 2003 Chevy Trail Blazer is
right up there with comfort and it is
great to drive. I have the 3:42
differentials and get 23MPG or better
on the highway at about 69MPH with 87
octane gas. I get a bit less mileage
when I use the 89 octane ethanol gas.


Best Features

I love the tough beefy look of the front end of this vehicle. Also it handles great.


Worst Features

Tune the transmission to shift in a fashion that would give the most that 275HP motor has from the start to top end.
