Actually, it's been since the first ones came out in 2002. Well, 2001 but it was an 02 model. It really hasn't been a problem for me.

Just got 2007 with the straight 6 cylinder,First thing I did was put the K&N filter inside the housing. I drilled more air holes on top of the housing to let it Breath !! Actually you can take off the housing alltogether ! but there isnt anywhere to put the return crankcase breather hose, I just wire tied it to the side of the filter I tried both ways and put the top of the housing back on , Only have 2500 miles on it now was getting 15-17 mpg !!!( Good job Chevy engineers ) Now Im 17-21 mpg... (Something wrong here !!) Next mod will be the throttle body spacer...for more low end torque...and a little more UUMpf !!!

Another litle mod is the throttle body spacer, Its a 1" spacer that screws on between the fresh air inlet and the throttle body ,It will give you more low end torque and better mileage !!! Why is it that we all have to modify our vehicles ,,Why the hell didnt gm do this when they built the freaken vehicle !! This pisses me off GM !! And the Trailblazer is on the top of the list as a GAS GUZZLER !!! Gm is in cahoots wit da oil companies !!!!

I never go to sites like this but will never buy a Chevy again. My front drivers seat just broke, not sure when but when my husband got in the car it was leaning to the right. We are not that heavy. Instead of replacing the flimsy cast alimininum part. The entire seat frame must be replaced for $607. I have already replace the transfer case (broke due to last of use?)have the ticking noise in the engine when it starts up and also have a high pitched rattled for even dimple in the road. Not to mention the wiper motors that both had to be replaced during warranty. NEVERAGAIN!!!! I AM GOING BACK TO HONDA!
#207 of 220 2004 Owner
Aug 29, 2007 (5:20 am)
Hi everyone. I purchased a 2004 at the beginning of 2007. Used, had about 60,000 miles on it, purchased for around $14 grand. Is white with gray interior. Last couple owned it was from Lima, Ohio and i live in the same state so they must have just travled a lot (wanted to make sure it was not a Katrina vehicle). However I did already have the alternator replaced. The other thing I am now noticing is that when I put it in reverse the engine seems to want to stall, or there is a miss or something.
Also I noticed shortly after purchasing it that there is some wind noise when I have the windows down. My a/c also does not work. I have to get that fixed. That may be the reason it is doing the other thing? I don't know. I've only had this vehicle for about 9 months and it already needs a bunch of repairs!

I just bought my 04 around a month or so after you bought yours! How odd.. anyhow thought I would let you know I do have the same issue with my air vents, hot air keeps blowing out after I turn off the air completely. Right now my A/C is out so watch for yours to go out too, if it already hasn't!

I own two TB's, one I bought one week ago. The noise I hear,which I believe is suspension related, I describe as like a cracking sound. If I step n the brake suddenly is when I mostly hear it. Both vehicles have the same noise the newer one (2003 ext) is even worse than the other (2002 LS). I plan on taking it to the deler I bought it at. If they fix it I will defenitely post it. To me, it sounds like maybe a stabelizer bar. All the stabelizer links were changed on the 2002. The noise is much less but still there.

Dear Karen, I don't know if you are still the host for the Trailblazer owner club? I see that there are other postings in this area other than what is supposed to be there "Introducing Yourself". I am interested to introduce myself and tell about my 02 Trailblazer but it appears not to be a just introducing yourself page. Can you tell me if there may be a problem with people posting in the wrong areas? I would not want to make the same mistake. Thanks, Kathy
