To many problems

Bought this 2003 model SUV with 28,000 miles on it. Have had too many issues to recommend it. The tail and headlights always go out. The top of the gas tank sending unit leaked gas all over the drive way and when you would drive it in 2008. Chevy first said no to the repair/replacement but then after I had it done sent the recall. Most recently the transmission that they say doesn?t need service until 100,000 miles needed service as in replacement ($2200) @ 100,000 miles. The all-wheel drive system has needed service, and this week the exhaust manifold replaced ($500). This truck is a rust bucket. The only good thing I would say is that it is comfortable and has good power and mileage for the 4.2 motor.

good car if taken care of

drive it and if the transmition doesnt roar while taking off then most likely the tranny is fine also make sure you dont feel it sticking when acelerating

Awesome Truck

This is a Great Truck. Very reliable. Awesome in the snow and rain. Rides like a luxery car not a Truck.

Never Again!

This car was bought new, but probably spent more time at the dealership than in my garage. At 5k miles AC failed, at 6K, dashboard instruments failed, several recalls during it's one year tenure with us. One year was enough, sold it at a loss (they depreciate quickly). Very bad customer service too. No wonder GM is in such a pickle! Bought a Honda Pilot, had ZERO problems in the 6 years I owned it.

Love my TB! Sad they aren't made anymore!

This is a wonderful vehicle! I usually get bored and trade every 4 years. I have had this car since Dec 2002, and here it is May 2010. I love my Trailblazer and am seriously not happy at the thought that I can't replace her because Chevy stopped making them!!

Exceeded my expectations

Everything about this SUV has exceeded my expectations: lots of power (270 hp, more than you would think for an inline 6), great tow capacity, lots of room, only 1 mechanical problem in 50k miles (ball joints), and really good gas mileage for a vehicle this size (28 mpg highway...I have the 2 wheel drive version). The only real complaints I have are minor: the voltage regulator does a poor job and the lights tend to dim at random, and the vehicle is a little noisey on bumpy roads.

I love my truck

I love my trailblazer. I purchased it new in 2003. I have had some minor electrical problems like the taillights going out repeatedly and the car shocks you when you get out, but I still love it and won't part with it until it dies. I have almost a 100,000 miles on it and have not had to do one major repair yet.

Not a great SUV

I purchased the 2003 Trailblazer brand new in January. In July the air conditioner broke. The following year the air conditioner broke again, the following year the rear end of the truck creeks, yet no chevy mechanic can figure out why, the lumbar pillow stopped working, and the tail light are always going out. I believe when you buy a brand new car, there should not be one problem for at least 5 years. Those I know who have this SUV say the same thing. I feel like I wasted my money on this truck. Especially since I had it maintenced every 3-6 months...

very good truck

I loved this truck from the moment I got into it, it has excellent handling I love the interior of the truck and the ruggedness of the exterior

Best vehicle I've owned.

I own this vehicle and I am very happy with it. This is a vehicle that I would buy again because pound for pound it is the best for the money. It is very durable and reliable. This vehicle easily beats all others in it class by far. I think that GM did their homework when it comes to the Trailblazer. I would without question recommend this SUV to a friend.
