#136 of 220 Self Damaging Trailblazer
Mar 30, 2003 (5:33 pm)
I have a 2002 Trailblazer that is throwing road debris from the front tires onto the flanged area in front of the rear tires. I have 13000 miles on it. It has never been off road. In conversations with Chevrolet they will not do anything to make it right. I asked for mudflaps and repaint of the area. Since then I have discovered two more Trailblazers with the same damage. Since the 2003 and 2002's are the same body design it will be a problem with both. Everyone should check their vehicle immediately and if you find damage file a complaint. I will be contacting the attorney general and the BBB. I, also plan to provide this information to dealers so that they will be under pressure to get this design problem taken care of.

Have you checked Edmunds Maintenance Guide for recalls and technical service bulletins?

#140 of 220 6 months old & dealer said too many repairs
Apr 07, 2003 (11:04 am)
As I brought my 2002 Trailblazer in for the 5th time (each time had multiple repairs) the service manager said I can't find the first repair on the gas fill problem "YOU HAVE TOO MANY PAGES OF REPAIRS". My truck wouldn't take any gas, it kept shooting out the fill neck & I had to cancel my Sunday outing with the family. The brakes have vibration when stopping (warped roters) in 2 times for this. My 4wd keeps freeking out & jumping into 4wd low at 60mh & flashes 2 4wd lights & reads service 4wd on dash. Two weeks ago it lunged into reverse after I put it into park & tried to shut it down because of its error lights.
The computer had to be re programed because it had a valve clatter so loud I thought something came loose. The second day I had it I found screws loose under the hood on the hood support arm. It sometimes bumps into gear in low & others it takes too long to shift into the next gear. Aside from this it rides nice & pulls my boat very well.
#141 of 220 Suspension Chirping/Squeaking Noise
Apr 07, 2003 (7:28 pm)
I have a 2003 LT and during the first week I had it, it started to have a squeaking noise coming from the front passenger side. I took it in 3 seperate times before they finally found out what it was. It was a fender clip that held in the fender lining that was turned the wrong way and the transmission line was rubbing against the clip. They replaced the clip and I have had no further problems. Just thought I would pass this info on, I hope it helps someone else.
#142 of 220 Advice on Window Vents
Apr 30, 2003 (12:54 pm)
I just got a LTZ and would like to add window vents for the
4 windows. I have found several types (3M stick-on, clip on,
insert in window channel) but am not sure which is best. Has
anyone out there have window vents and care to comment
on their satisfaction for the type? I installed "autovent" from
the local auto parts store to my 1996 GMC Jimmy which used
the 3M tape and they fit perfect and lasted for the 7 years I
owned it. They are great for summer rains and heat disipation. Thanks for any advice on experience with the

Hey everyone, I've been reading up for a while on the trailblazers and I'm still a little leary on buying one! I'm in the market for a used SUV and I'm really interested in the trailblazer. Love the looks and was very pleased with the drive and performance.
Can someone please fill me in on the reliability of these vehicles? I haven't heard great things about chevy but in the same, I've heard they've been changing their ways. Please please help me, I'm going coocoo over here trying to decide what to buy
