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


One of the most comfortable riding SUV's I've ridden/driven. Handles very well, but the 4WD is lacking if you're really in the thick of things. Definitely opt for the locking rear differential if you're going to test its limits. The interior is a bit drab; could definitely use some sprucing up. However, the large controls are very user-friendly. The numerous rear storage compartments are useful. Actual workmanship of the vehicle is ok, but after only 4 years of ownership, door moldings are working their way loose and rust is developing from the inside-out along the bottoms of the doors. Taillight lenses and license plate lights also let in far too much moisture.

Best Features

Super tight turning radius, thanks to in-line 6. Plenty of get-up-and go with 275 bhp. Standard tow-package is very useful. Auto-on headlights is great for safety and convenience. Seats are very comfortable for long- distance trips.

Worst Features

Rearwindow wiper and washer need improvement. Wiper doesn't conform to curved window and washer doesn't spray high enough to cover wiper area. It tows boats and trailers fairly well, but the gearing is too high, so there is a lot of downshifting on even the slightest of inclines. Needs a towing gear
