    Good Car For A Family Or Commute. — This car is my first car and very good car. Performance was really good for a 4.2L V6. I felt safe and in control with this car. This is not a sports car but yet its sporty feeling for a SUV.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Good power, handling, low maintenance, last long

    Cons: Gas mpg

    Overal — runs great, would recommend, mine has high miles over 200k but works likes a clock, 4 wheel drive is wonders in the winter weather, Michelin tires are quiet, smooth and look great, go test drive one today, too bad GM discontinued it, but there are plenty around to buy

    Pros: smooth ride, quiet, solid interior, good looking, goes forever

    Cons: not much

    Great Suv, Lots Of Power And Torque. — Quality was beyond its time, beastly acceleration power as well as low-end torque, nice fit and finish, best sound system in any stock car I've ever bought new. My only desire is that GM could have made it a bit less thirsty on the Highway.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Love it. Strong, fast, great engine and sound system.  

    Cons: Wish it got a little better MPG.

    Average Suv, Good For A Good Price — this car worked perfect what I needed it for, good med. size family SUV, 4WD works great in the woods too. Loved the built in remote garage opener, rear a/c great for the kids, nice cargo space w/ hidden capartments

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: 4WD, rear-air, big cargo space, built-in remote garage opener

    Cons: interior plastic wears out fast, radio buttons worn off

    Would Buy It Again And Again - If Chevy Still Made It — Coming from a Ford family, this Chevy is the only exception I could find comparable to the Explorer. Kudos to Chevy for coming out with a vehicle with so many 'comfort' options in 2002 that are hard to find on one vehicle, even 10 years later! Loved getting 18-25 mpg - and still be able to have a 4wd SUV - way before electric vehicles were being produced. Did have an issue with CV joints in 2003 and Chevy was a little difficult in repairing under the warranty, but eventually did (apparently Ford is a 4-letter-word they are not fond of in their shop).

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Dependable, great on gas mileage for a 4wd SUV

    Cons: Fan motor makes a click noise that the dealership has told me is normal for Trailblazers for the last 10 years.  Biggest con... they don't make it anymore!

    2002 Chevy Trailblazer — It has lots of power, brakes well, handles well, it's a little squirly but I am used to an 18 wheeler and a Chevy Suburban. Love it now though. Got this one Thanksgiving last year , has a 172000 miles on it. Gas mileage is not the greatest, The Computer says 19 MPG lifetime and on a cross country trip with 2 adults and loaded with antiques, never went over 20 mpg with calculating miles on the odo and gallons at the pump. It is fun to drive and handy in small spaces.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Compact yet feels safe.

    Cons: Fuel usage.

    Perfect For The Weekend Mechanic Or A Handyman To Tinker With — Best multi-use SUV ever built in my opinion. Mild acceleration, good braking, great handling for size. Gas mileage is great for size, up to 21 mpg in my experience. Easy to work on, but you will get ripped off if you have it serviced by a mechanic, because spare parts are very inexpensive due to high availability. It is fun to drive!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Looks, Hauling capacity, 4WD is awesome

    Cons: Not a gas saver, needs TLC to stay in top running condition

    A Great Car For The Money, But Be Prepared To Pay A Lot In Gas. — Performance: Decent acceleration, very good handling, good braking, hauls Uhaul trailers and boats without an issue. We also haul wood in our 6x10 foot trailer in it. Build Quality: I've had one issue with a squeak coming from the front, but other than that, built well. Appearance: I love the look. Mine is a 2002 and the design is still up to date. Cost of Ownership: Here's where it drops off. The gas milage stinks. I spend a lot of money in gas each week, that's why I'm selling it. I have had to put about $1700 into it in the past year and it still needs new bearings on the left front tire. That's another $450. Fun Factor: It is fun to drive. I like being up high and it has an amazing turn radius.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Has been reliable, not required too much cost to keep it up.

    Cons: Poor gas milage.
