Print this page Notes: The Trailblazer emerged from an "upscale trim line" of the Blazer, but there's nothing upscale about its transmission problems or its wonky, unpredictable headlights.

2002 Chevrolet Trailblazer Owner Comments

problem #1

Aug 222013

Trailblazer 6-cyl

  • 122,000 miles


When my mechanic put my truck on the lift yesterday to change the water pump, he noticed that the frame is so rotted that he advised me not to drive it.and for who knows how long, my wife and myself, who are both disabled, have been driving this, putting ourselves and the public at risk. When I brought it to a Chevrolet dealer, they just said, no recalls on it, sorry! so now I have to figure out a way to get my wife and myself to doctors appointments, shopping, and all the other things we need a dependable vehicle for. We can't drive this, or afford to fix it, and we have no money to buy another one. Did I mention that we are filing for bankruptcy because my wife was mis-diagnosed by a doctor, lost her job, and now is in a wheelchair" or that our mortgage is going on 18 mos. Overdue?or that we have a new handicap accessible home to move into, but we can't get our current house packed to be able to put it on the market"
