Pros

love the traction control options i live in CT we get snow rain ice and the occasional hurricane has an incredibly smooth ride and the dash has a computer that tells u everything u need to know like when to change your oil, how many miles ur getting to the gallon based on how u drive, how many miles you can go on the gas thats in your tank in prime driving conditions and the seat recall is awesome my wife drives the car to and i dont have to reposition the seat all i have to do is push a button

Cons

i only have 2 things that i can say negatively about this car i have 2 little girls and my family (most of them) lives in mass 235 miles away so if i get a flat tire i have to get them out of the car take out the carseats just to get to the jack and tire iron. the only other thing is the gas milage 15 city and 25 highway so that could be a bit better

Great, Awesome Car Every Thing Works And Runs, If You Have Kids Dont Get A Flat On The Highway — has plenty of room both front seats are 8 way power seats the driver seat has memory recall there is a 6 disc cd changer in the dash and the sound from the radio is awesome, also has independant climate control for driver and passenger and even the back seat there is SEPERATE radio in the back with head phone jacks so if the ppl want to listen to something different thay can the spare tire is mounted under the rear deck and the jack and tire changing tools are under the rear seats so cargo space is maximized. the rear split folding seats are a plus the fold flat to the trunk level making it easy to transport larger objects if needed anti roll bars in the front and rear 4 different traction settings (rear wheel, all wheel, 4 whell hi, and 4wheel low)

I Love My Car — I love my 2003 Trailblazer. It has good acceleration for a 4.2L inline 6, brakes are very good. For a small wheel base, the vehicle handles very well. Although the fenders are built of flimsy metal, the build quality is good. It has a sporty look for the outside for a SUV and the inside is very nicely set up. I get at 14 mpg city and 22 mpg highway. I love this car.

Cons

Door seals make little whistling noises.

Safe Family Suv Sold — This big safe family suv drives extremely well once you add a K&N filter to it. It's a massive cardboard air-filter originally and it chokes the engine. Just buy a high quality airfilter like K&N or something even nicer and then it can spin up to 6K rpms in seconds and really go. It has a lot more pickup in the 4.2L inline then you would expect. Smooth comfortable ride. The suspension is a good set from the factory, but they wear out at about 70k with normal city use. The springs were also shot and needed to be replaced. The brakes lasted forever, I remember pulling the tires off at 75K and looking at half the pad still there and shaking my head going "really?" The need for the aftermarket high quality air filter is pretty extreme. When we first bought the Chevy it has so little power that we considered returning it to the dealer. After just the air filter change it went from sluggish and horrid to a high revving joy. It isn't a sports car by any means but it is a decent drive.

2003 Trailblazer - You Can Call Her Cris-tal' — My car is amazing! Its good on gas especially for an SUV, it rides like a caddy. and it is very roomy. Maintenance ist expensive either and about the only downer I have seen is the fact that the radio doesnt have a repeat button.

2003 Chevrolet Trailblazer — I have the 5.3L V8. Iove the power for a smaller SUV. I also love the third row. I think the suspension should be a little tighter or my shocks are just worn out.

Truck! — Minor build quality issues otherwise it's a good vehicle. Found out when traded it in for my Saab that the Trailblazer was in a $20,000 accident with the previous owner. Explains why it leaned to the right and handled so poorly.
