    Good Truck — Good overall truck long trip for me the front seats were uncomfortable to ride in. Maint costs were low but it was starting to get rust underneath. Great traction with the awd 4wd drove well in most any conditions outside

    Pros: Nice looking roomy inside

    Cons: Gas milage front seat comfort

    Not Bad — Please see pros and cons above. I would recommend this vehicle if you can good a price for it. My son says he likes it and would like another newer one if it has the "bugs" fixed please see cons!

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: My son drives it and the vehicles has been pretty reliable. Very practical and my son likes all the extra features like heated seats because it is the LTZ level trim.

    Cons: The biggest drawback is the instrument panel gauges work hardly ever except when they feel like it.  I have read that it is a very common problem with that make, year, and model but you would think some kind of recall would help fix it because you need the information to drive safe especially speedometer, oil, temperatrure, fuel, and so on!  . Also had rear brakes lock up and need the pulley's replaced for the serpentine belts because they are  making alot of noise.

    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)

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    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

    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.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Quick acceleration for in-line 6,

    Cons: Rev limiter

    I Like It — Acceleration is good on the highway, could be a little faster in town. Braking is great, handles awesome, build quality is ok. the suspension is very noisy. I think the appearance is awesome, best in it's class.gas mileage is about 16mpg. I enjoy driving it.

    Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

    Pros: Exterior appearance

    Cons: Engine

    If You Can Get A Good Deal Then It Might Be Worth It — the in line 6 is very very bad on gas. it does have some power. the brakes are ok also. i have 143,000 miles and i already replaced the trans, front and rear transfer case and axels, 4wd, power steering and motor but i drove like an ass and pulled stuff i shouldnt have

    Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

    Pros: not many

    Cons: trans 4wd axel
