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)

Love My Trailbalzer — Have had this SUV since 2008. Have added a K&N air filter, got rid of trash can on back of exhaust, reprogramed spark and in summer will get 17 to 19 mpg on a trip. Very little maintance expenses. This has been a great car. 238k plus miles and still runs and looks great. I am very meticulus with up-keep, if it needs anything, it gets it asap. Gonna drive it till the wheels fall off.

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.

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.
