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


Review

I bought my LS right off the lot, brand new. I loved it, handled great, felt comfortable, felt expensive. At 50000 miles everything went downhill. The fan clutch went out, factory defect, known by GM. I had to replace it twice. AT 60000 miles the shifter would stick and not move, found a broken wire under the console. The fuel pump started spewing gas, after I repaired it, GM sent a letter with an offer to replace it--too late for me. Gas mileage was perfectly awful, I live on a mountain, it took a quarter tank of gas to down then up. The older the car got the worse it became.


Best Features

Good quality handling and feel. V6 engine quick and powerful.


Worst Features

GM needs to put more effort into constructing a good quality vehicle that lasts and be more responsive (and honest) to the faults and repairs on their product.

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


Review

I’m a Chevy buyer. Started with a Cavalier 25 years ago, and worked my way up to the Trail Blazer. I love it. It’s stylish and reliable. It still looks brand new, and rides as smooth as the day I purchased it.


Best Features

BOSE stereo, automatic seat adjuster, heated seats just to name a few…


Worst Features

Can't think of any...

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


Review

110 K mi. Absolutely no mech.issues to date. Good road ride, front seats are very comfortable , rear seats are not comfortable, tight entry/exit. Handles well on the highway, a little whale(ish) around town. The 4,2 L 275 hp engine is quiet and smooth with more than adequate power. Gas mileage is decent: 16-18 mpg city, 20-24 mpg hwy. With 55-60 mph cruise 25+ mpg. LTZ model but a basic Chevy w/bland, cheap plastic interior appointments. Excessive wind noise around windows. OA a decent American SUV for the money, not great, but a good value so far. I have not spent a penny beyond basic maintenance, which is a pleasant departure and surprise for a GM vehicle.


Best Features

4.2L engine has been smooth and reliable. Good highway ride. So far, mechanically sound.


Worst Features

Improve wind noise and OA sound proofing. Vehicle deserved better interior appointments.

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


Review

This car is the best. i can pass anyone out in it. lots of power. very comfy seats, feels like my couch at home. radio is awesome really loud and lots of bass. ac works great. engine noise is really quite around 1,000-2,000 rpm but once you get past 3,500 rpm the beast comes out. Just a great car


Best Features

0-60 time, power, brakes, stereo, steering/turing, tire screeching fun


Worst Features

The plastics used inside to be better quality, not to wear out so fast. 6 speed transmission, dual tailpipes.

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


Review

I only have 17,500 miles on this vehicle. I get 11 mph in town and 16 mph highway. I have the v6 engine. Thought about trading it even though it is in mint condition and very well maintained. Decided that the difference in cost for a new vehicle would buy a lot of gas.


Best Features

Getting in and out of my 1000 ft driveway and down my dirt country road in the winter.


Worst Features

Not making it much longer so no matter.
